英语专四听写辅导资料:Cop;ToFreakOut

来源:育路教育网发布时间:2011-12-04

  李华是在纽约上大学的中国学生。今天她的美国同学Michael陪她练习开车,准备去考驾照。他们在路上几次遇到惊险的情况,尽管这样,李华还是学到了两个常用语,一个是:cop;另一个是:to freak out.

M:Your driving is getting better, Li Hua. Hey, you'd better slow down. This is a 35 mile per hour zone.

L:这地区每小时只能开35英里呀?我是不是开太快啦?哟,我的天呐,警察车跟在我后面,那怎么办呐?

M:Calm down, Li Hua. Just find a parking lot and stop the car. The cop will follow us, and come over to your window to talk to you.

L:哪儿有停车的地方呀!行,就停在这里吧!你刚才说谁会过来跟我说话?是警察吗?

M:That's right. "Cop" means police officer.

L:警察要来跟我说话!我会不会倒霉呀?我该怎么办呢?

M:Calm down! Sometimes the cops stop people just to warn them, not to give them a ticket. You weren't going very fast anyway.

L:你说警察可能过来只是警告我一下,不一定会给我罚单呀?但愿如此,我好象是没有开太快。Michael,你刚才说“cops”, 那警车里到底有几个警察呀?

M:When I say "the cops", I mean the police in general. I'm not talking about any cop in particular.

L:噢,cop 这个名词用复数的时候,cops,可以总的指警察,而不是指某个警察。我就把车停这儿吧。 Michael,我能称呼警察“cop”吗?

M:No! The word "cop" is too informal. You should show respect when talking to the cops. Call him "officer", don't call him "cop"!

L:天哪!原来“cop”是很随便的称呼,你干吗不早告诉我呀!我可不要惹警察生气!

M:Li Hua, don't worry. I'm sure this isn't very serious.

M:See, Li Hua, I was right. The cop didn't give you a ticket.

L:谢天谢地,他没有给我罚单。他要罚我好多钱的话,那我就糟糕了。

M:I told you not to freak out. If a cop sees that you are nervous, he will be even more suspicious of you.

L:你告诉我什么?叫我别下车?

M:No, I told you not to "freak out". "Freak out" means to panic or to act crazy and excited.

L:是啊,我经常听到一些人说freak out,原来是指过于激动,显得非常紧张。对不对?

M:That's right. Actually, I was the one who should have been freaking out!

L:你才该感到紧张?为什么?

M:Because this is my car, and you only have a learner's permit. I'd be responsible if you got in trouble.

L:这我就不懂了。是的,这是你的车,我只有一张学开车的许可证。可是,我开车出了问题,为什么警察会怪你呀?你为什么要freak out?

M:Hey! Li Hua, look out for that car!

L:Don't freak out, Michael. 我看见那辆车了。不过,那车差一点就撞到我们了!

M:Oh, man! that was close! That guy is crazy! I wish the cops were here to see that!

L:对,刚才是够险的,警察要看到他那么开车,准要给他罚单。不过,今天已经和警察打过交道了,够了。再要跟cops打交道,那我可真是要freak out了。

M:Me too. Now, drive carefully!

  今天这两个年轻人真是够惊险的。不过,李华学到了两个非常有用的词汇: cop,警察;to freak out,非常紧张和激动。
