又到了溫馨五月,你打算用甚麼方式來慶祝母親節呢?如果你還不知道要送媽媽甚麼大禮,不妨學學吉米和露西這對兄妹吧。他們打算幫媽媽做完所有的家事,並請媽媽吃一份大餐。當然,不是只有在母親節這一天,平常也要幫媽媽做家事噢!

 

Jimmy and Lucy are having breakfast.
Lucy: Do you know that today is Mother’s Day?
Jimmy: No, I didn’t realize that. Thanks for reminding me. 
Lucy: We should get Mom a special gift. Do you have any suggestions?
Jimmy thinks for a moment.
Jimmy: Hmm … it seems like she has everything imaginable.
Lucy: Maybe we can help her with some of her chores.
Jimmy: Yeah, it seems like she’s busy doing housework around the clock.
Lucy: All right then. Let’s split her tasks up. I’ll take care of the laundry and iron some of the clothes as well.
Jimmy: I can handle the cleaning. I’ll vacuum the carpet, dust some furniture, andscrub the kitchen floor.
Lucy: That’s a terrific plan, but we need to get some detergent to make the cleaning easier.
Jimmy: You’re right. Let’s hurry up though. If we can complete everything before Mom gets home, she’ll really be surprised and happy.
Lucy and Jimmy immediately get to work.

中文翻譯
吉米和露西正在吃早餐。
露西: 你知道今天是母親節嗎?
吉米: 不,我沒注意到這件事。謝謝妳提醒我。
露西: 我們應該買一個特別的禮物給媽媽。你有什麼建議嗎?
吉米想了想。
吉米: 嗯…看起來她已經擁有所有我們想得到的東西。
露西: 也許我們可以幫她做一點家事。
吉米: 對噢,她看起來整天都在忙著做家事。
露西: 那好。我們就來分攤她的工作吧。我會處理洗衣服還有燙衣服的事情。
吉米: 我可以負責清掃。我會用吸塵器吸地毯、撣掉一些家具上的灰塵,以及刷洗廚房地板。
露西: 這個計畫太棒了,但我們需要先買些清潔劑來讓打掃更輕鬆。
吉米: 你說的對。我們趕快開始吧。如果我們可以在媽媽回家前做完所有家事,她會非常驚喜。
露西和吉米馬上開始打掃。
