情境介紹:任職於跨國企業台灣分公司的Eric昨天去了花蓮泛舟,今天一進辦公室外籍同事Cynthia便找Eric攀談......

Cynthia: Hey Eric, I saw your photo posts on Facebook yesterday. Great pics. You took the day off to go whitewater rafting?

Eric: Yeah, some friends invited me at the last minute to fill in for someone. The threehour ride along the Xiuguluan Canyon was exhilarating and the sights were breathtaking!

Cynthia: Did your raft capsize?

Eric: I thought it would several times, but it didn’t. It’s now peak season and the recent rains made the rapids even faster than usual. I was glad I was wearing a life vest and helmet.

Cynthia: Were you tired at the end?

Eric: Exhausted! It was an adrenaline rush to navigate the rapids, and sometimes we had to paddle furiously. But at other times, we just drifted, enjoying the bubbling rapids, whirlpools and postcard-perfect natural scenery...Oh, good morning sir.

Nathan: Good morning, Eric. I also saw your photos on Facebook. Didn’t you call in sick yesterday?

Cynthia: 嘿,艾瑞克,我看到你昨天在Facebook上傳的照片。照得很好喔!你休假去泛舟啊?

Eric: 對呀,朋友臨時約我去替補無法參加的人。沿著秀姑巒溪峽谷3小時的旅程好刺激,風景更是令人屏息讚嘆!

Cynthia: 你們的橡皮艇有翻覆嗎?

Eric: 好幾次我都覺得似乎要翻船了,但最後沒有。現在是旺季,最近下的雨又剛好讓激流變得比平常更湍急。幸好我穿了救生背心並戴了安全帽。

Cynthia: 最後你有筋疲力盡嗎?

Eric: 累壞了!急流泛舟時就像是腎上腺素爆發,有時候我們都得卯起來划槳,但也有些時候我們只需要隨波逐流,享受翻騰的湍流、漩渦,還有像明信片一般完美的景色??哦,早安,老闆。

Nathan: 早安,艾瑞克。我也看到你Facebook上的照片。你昨天不是請病假嗎?

實用慣用語:休假?請病假?這些日常生活中必備的(requisite)用語英文怎麼說呢?一起來看看!

Fill in for
