Dialogue 1
Mark: Good afternoon, Jingjing. Are you ready for the weather to turn chilly?
马克:下午好,京晶,天气要变凉了,你准备好了吗?
Jingjing: Not really. I like the temperatures we have these days. It seems we just got past the days when it was too hot to do much outdoors.
京晶:并没有。我喜欢这些天的温度。看上去我们已经度过了热得没法做户外运动的日子。
Mark: Yeah, and next thing you know it'll be too cold outside.
马克:是啊,很快,就会太冷也没法出去了。
Jingjing: Right. Hey, have a moon cake. It'll help you stay warm for the coming autumn.
京晶:是啊。来,吃块月饼,这热量能帮你保暖迎接秋天的到来。
Mark: Thanks. It's a nut one, right? I recognize the 五 character.
马克:谢谢了。是伍仁馅儿的吗?我认出了“五”这个汉字。
Jingjing: Yep, that's it. The other is 仁, which usually means kindness, but when it's about food it refers to nuts.
京晶:嗯呢,是的!另外一个字是“仁”,通常这个字的含义是仁慈,但指代食物时,意为坚果类。
Mark: That's really different. In English, if someone says, “you're nuts”, they are saying you're crazy.
马克:这真是很大的不同啊。在英语中,如果有人说“you're nuts”意思是你疯了,失去理智了。
Jingjing: Okay, but depending on the context, someone knows that you're either talking about nuts as a kind of food or kindness and benevolence as a human quality.
京晶:但是要取决于上下文,有人知道你要么指的是做为食物的坚果,要么是指做为人类所具有的善良和仁慈的品质。
Mark: Got it. Anyway, thanks for the moon cake. That's my favorite flavor.
马克:明白了。对了,谢谢你的月饼,这是我最喜欢的口味。
Jingjing: I usually like to eat one that has an egg inside.
京晶:我通常喜欢吃一个里面有蛋黄的那种。
Mark: Oh, that's the only one I don't like.
马克:啊,那是我唯一不喜欢的一种。
Jingjing: I think you told me that last year. That's why I saved the one with nuts in it for you. Hey, did you eat it already?
京晶:我记得你去年跟我说过。这就是我为什么我给你留了一个里面伍仁馅的。你吃了吗?
Mark: Yup. I wolfed it down when you were talking about benevolence.
马克:吃啦。你谈到仁慈的时候我就大口吞了个干净。
Jingjing: 你太麻木不仁. That means you're too insensitive. I'm just kidding.
京晶:“你太麻木不仁了”意思是你太迟钝太麻木了。开玩笑哈。
Mark: I guess I should have just nibbled it politely. But it was so good, I couldn't stop myself from finishing the whole thing in a few bites.
马克:我想我本应该很有礼貌地轻轻咬着吃,但它真的太美味了,我简直情不自禁几口就结束战斗了。
Jingjing: Ha ha. Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
京晶:哈哈。很开心你喜欢吃。

Dialogue 2
Jingjing: Mark, do you celebrate Mid-Autumn festival in the west?
京晶:马克,你们西方庆祝中秋节吗?
Mark: No. It's mainly an Asian holiday. We have something like a harvest festival, but not a holiday celebrated everywhere on the same day.
马克:不呢。这主要是个亚洲的节日。我们有类似秋收节,但也不是一个在各地同一天庆祝的节日。
Jingjing: In China, and throughout Asia, we celebrate Mid-Autumn festival on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month.
京晶:在中国,以至整个亚洲,我们都在农历八月十五这天庆祝中秋。
Mark: That's a full moon, right?
马克:那天是满月,对吧?
Jingjing: Yes. Did you see the moon last Monday?
京晶:是的,你看到周一的月亮了吗?
Mark: Yeah. We had clear weather, and got to enjoy the view. The moon shines into my window most nights. Monday night, my bedroom was brightly lit.
马克:看见了啊。那天天气清朗,能看到很好的景色。好几天夜里月光都照进了窗户。周一那晚,我的卧室都被照亮了。
Jingjing: Besides looking at the moon, do you know what we do to celebrate Mid-Autumn Day?
京晶:除了赏月,你知道中秋节还要如何庆祝一下吗?
Mark: Eat moon cakes, obviously. Besides that, people get together to have a big meal. Isn't that so?
马克:吃月饼,是当然的。除此以外,家人团聚吃顿大餐,对吗?
Jingjing: That's right. Since it's just one day off, most people stay near their own home and workplace. So, a lot of us have meals with friends in the city where we live.
京晶:对的。既然只有一天假,大多数人也就呆在家里或者单位附近了。所以,大多数人也就在自己居住地的城里和朋友们一起吃饭了。
Mark: Did you have a get together with your friends.
马克:你和朋友们聚了吗?
Jingjing: I sure did. Several classmates from my university had a mini-reunion. We had hot pot on a long table with three different soups boiling.
京晶:当然了。我和好几个大学同学来了个小团圆。我们吃了火锅,一个大长桌上煮了三种不同口味的汤锅。
Mark: That sounds fabulous. Is hot pot a traditional food for the Mid-Autumn festival?
马克:听上去好棒啊。火锅也是中秋节的传统食物吗?
Jingjing: Nah, it's just a nice thing to have with a group, and good food for when the weather is on the verge of turning cold.
京晶:不是的。只是和一群人相聚很适合吃的好东西,也是很好的在天气快要变凉的时候吃的食物。
Mark: There's no such thing as a bad reason to have a good meal with friends.
马克:和朋友们一起聚个好餐任何理由都是好理由。
Jingjing: Right. It was good to see them all. Also, ate so much that I've only had vegetables and snacks since then.
京晶:是的。见到他们特别好。我得好撑,吃完都现在我都只吃了点蔬菜和零食呢。
