走遍美國 第4課 ACT 1-1  “沒問題,小事一樁。”

【故事概要】

星期五傍晚,從有氧運動高級班回來的Marilyn一進屋就一屁股坐在地板上。她累壞了。她告訴Richard高級班的運動強度很大,但是Richard認為如果換作他,這種程度的鍛煉完全是小菜一碟。

Marilyn: I am exhausted. My new exercise class is so hard.
Richard: Your new exercise class?
Marilyn: Yeah. My new advanced exercise class.
Richard: Why advanced?
Marilyn: My instructor thought that the beginner's class was too easy for me.
Richard: Too easy for you?
Marilyn: Don't laugh. In the beginner's class, they give you a chance to rest between exercises.
Richard: So?
Marilyn: The advanced class is nonstop.
Richard: I lift weights every morning for sixty minutes without stopping. No problem.
Marilyn: Listen, Richard, doing aerobics for an hour is a lot different than lifting weights.
Richard: Yeah. Quite a bit different. I think aerobics is easy. I could work out in your class with no problem.
Marilyn: You think so?
Richard: Oh, without a doubt. When's the next class?
Marilyn: Tomorrow morning at ten o'clock. Try it.
Richard: Tomorrow morning after lifting weights, I'll try aerobics. It's a snap. Tomorrow morning at ten o'clock.

【語言點精講】

1. My instructor thought that the beginner's class was too easy for me.
我的教練認為初學班對我太容易了。
too+ 形容詞或副詞+ for sb.,表示對于某人來說是過于……了。

2. No problem.
"No problem."與后文出現的"It's a snap. "都是“沒問題,小事一樁”的意思,用來表示某事很容易,做起來毫無問題。

3. Doing aerobics for an hour is a lot different than lifting weights.
連續做1小時有氧運動可跟練啞鈴大不一樣。
different than: 跟...不一樣。這里用 different from更規范,但很多美國人跟Marilyn一樣,在different之后使用than,這已經成為了一種約定熟成的用法。
aerobics: (通過散步、跑步、游泳、劃船、騎車、舞蹈、體操等有節奏運動等增強心肺循環功能的)有氧運動,健身操。也可以說aerobic exercise.
lift weights: 舉重。在這里指練啞鈴。

4. I could work out in your class with no problem.
要我到你們班上去鍛煉鍛煉,絕不會有困難。Richard說這話的意思是,假如有機會一試的話,即可證明我的能力。
I could...: 我可以……,我能……
work out: 這里的意思是鍛煉,尤指健身、健美訓練。

5. You think so?
你真的這樣認為嗎?當對別人的意見不能確定或贊同時,可以使用這句話。

6. Oh, without a doubt.
without a doubt: 相當于"sure; of course. "(當然,毫無問題。)這是用非??隙ǖ目跉鈦韽娬{自己的話。

【故事概要】

星期六早上,Richard在練啞鈴時,Marilyn提起了前一天他講過的要在練啞鈴之后再去參加有氧健身運動的高級班課程的事。Richard堅稱那些運動量對他來說只是小意思。Richard 和Marilyn就此打了個賭。

Marilyn: Aren't you going to the aerobics class this morning?
Richard: Of course. Easy. No sweat.
Marilyn: You are not going to be able to move after this and the aerobics class.
Richard: Are you kidding me? It's going to be a piece of cake.
Richard: You want to bet?
Marilyn: Yeah. What's the bet ?
Richard: I bet I can go one hour in your class this morning and not feel a thing!
Marilyn: The bet is - I win, and you cook dinner for the entire family. Or you win, and I cook dinner for the entire family.
Richard: It's a bet.
Marilyn: OK. Call my instructor, Jack Davis, right now . His number is 555-8842. The advanced class starts at ten o'clock.
Richard: Well, it's eight twenty now.
Marilyn: It only takes eight minutes by bicycle to the aerobics class. Give him a call.

【語言點精講】

1. No sweat.
不成問題,一點兒不費勁。

2. Are you kidding me?
你在開玩笑吧?也可以說You must be kidding!

3. It's going to be a piece of cake.
a plece of cake: 形容某事很easy,做起來不費吹灰之力。

4. You want to bet?
你敢打賭嗎?是"Do you want to bet?"的縮略形式??谡Z中,"Do you..."這種句型不說Do的情形很普遍。
bet在這里用作動詞,意思是“打賭,賭”。
注意Richard在說 want to時,把發音連成 wanna,這是非正式場合口語中常用的發音。

5. Yeah, What's the bet?
賭就賭,你說賭什么吧?這里的bet用作名詞,意思是“賭注”。

6. I bet I can go one hour in your class this morning and not feel a thing!
我賭我能在你們班上鍛煉1個小時并且一點也不感覺累!
I can go...: 此處 go指“鍛煉”。注意發音: can讀做k+n,當 can后面跟動詞時,我們常不必重讀它,這句正是如此。
not feel a thing是“毫不感到累(難)”的意思。

7. Well, it's eight twenty now.
這里的 Well表示說話人的猶豫。Richard推說現在已是8點20分了,是想好歹賴過這一次。

8. It only takes eight minutes by bicycle to the aerobics class.
Marilyn不依不饒,對Richard說“騎車到健身中心只需8分鐘。”
It takes + 時間+ to do something: 表示干某事需要多少時間。

Richard: Jack Davis, please.
Jack: This is Jack Davis.
Richard: Hello. This is Richard Stewart. My wife, Marilyn Stewart, is a member of your program. I'd like to come to the ten o'clock advanced class this morning.
Jack: Oh, fine, fine. Be here a few minutes early. You need to complete some forms before the class.
Richard: Thanks. I'm on my way over.
Jack: Good-bye.
Richard: Bye-bye. It's all set. I'm going.
Marilyn: Bye.
Richard: See you later.
