Dialogue 1
Mark: Well, Jingjing, we're back to work for a full week. Did you do anything special during the holiday?
马克:京晶,我们假期归来又要工作整整一周了。假期里你有没有做点什么特别的事情?
Jingjing: Actually, I did. You know those classmates of mine that I met just a couple weeks ago on Mid-Autumn Day?
京晶:实际上,的确做了点特别的。你还记得两周前中秋节时跟我一起聚会的我那些同学吗?
Mark: I remember. Don't tell me you had hot pot again.
马克:记得啊。别告诉我,你们又去吃火锅了。
Jingjing: No. None of us wanted that so soon after last time.
京晶:没有啦。上次吃完以后,我们都不太想马上接着又吃。
Mark: So, what'd you end up doing?
马克:那你这几天是怎么过的?
Jingjing: Well, most days, I stayed home and caught up on work, and lots of housework.
京晶:其实,我这几天大部分时间都宅在家里,忙工作的事情,还做了好多家务。
Mark: What about your classmates—did they help with chores around the house?
马克:那你的那些同学们呢?他们也都帮忙做家务吗?
Jingjing: Of course not! We went out. One of them had a car, and we all drove to a scenic area and had outdoor BBQ.
京晶:当然不是!我们一起出去玩了。一个同学有车。我们一起自驾到了一个景区,然后在那里户外烧烤。
Mark: I'm envious. BBQ is one of my favorite ways to eat. But you don't strike me as a carnivore.
马克:真羡慕你们。户外烧烤是我特别喜欢的吃法之一。不过,在我印象里,你并不是肉食动物。
Jingjing: I'm certainly not a vegetarian. But I went easy on the meat this time. That was hard to do because there was so much of it.
京晶:我肯定不是个素食主义者。但,这次我这次吃肉时还是比较有节制的。可真正做起来没那么简单,因为肉太多了。
Mark: Did your friends order too much?
马克:是你的朋友点的肉太多了吧?
Jingjing: Kind of. It was one of those places where you go get the raw meat from a buffet and then BBQ it on a grill near your table.
京晶:有点。我们去的就是那种你需要自助取生肉,然后在桌子边的烤架上自助烧烤的地儿。
Mark: That sounds like quite the cook-out.
马克:听起来挺像野炊的。
Jingjing: Yeah, we were there for several hours. My clothes smelled like smoke; and I couldn't get the smell out of my hair until the next day.
京晶:没错啊,我们在那呆了好几个小时。我的衣服上全是烟味,而且头发上的味道直到第二天才消失。
Mark: Haha. That's BBQ. Well, it was a good way to spend the holiday with friends.
马克:哈哈,户外烧烤就是这样。不过,这的确是一种与朋友们一起度过假期的好方式。
Jingjing: Yeah, we had a ton of fun.
京晶:对啊,我们玩得可开心啦!

Dialogue 2
Jingjing: So, Mark, how did you spend your holiday?
京晶:那么,马克,你的假期是怎么度过的呢?
Mark: Like you, I spend a lot of time catching up on work—almost the whole time. But the weather was so nice that my wife and I insisted on going for a hike one day.
马克:跟你一样,大部分时间,不,是几乎全部时间都在忙工作的事情。但,这几天的天气实在太好了,我和妻子决定还是抽出一天时间做了次徒步旅行。
Jingjing: Ha ha. Why am I not surprised? Did you go to the same place as last time?
京晶:哈哈。果然不出我意料!你们还是去的上次那个地方吗?
Mark: You know me. I love hiking. But, no, we tried another mountain. We didn't want to go very far, because of all the traffic.
马克:你太了解我了。我非常喜欢徒步旅行。但,我们这次去了另一座山。我们不想去太远的地方玩,因为十一期间交通太拥堵了。
Jingjing: Yeah, I know. I saw a video of someone who went on a scenic drive; but the only scenery he saw was a big traffic jam.
京晶:是啊,我了解的。我看过一个人拍的视频,他自驾去景区玩,结果看到的风景只有严重的塞车。
Mark: Oh, was that the one where he said he'd rather be in his office?
马克:哦,就是那个说出去玩还不如上班的人吧?
Jingjing: Yeah. Videos like that were reposted a lot during the holiday. Anyway, tell me more about your hike.
京晶:是的。假期里类似这样的视频都会被大量转载。不说这个了,还是多跟我说说你们的徒步吧。
Mark: We got up to the top in two hours. It took us another hour to get down. So, we had plenty of time to eat.
马克:我们不到两个小时就登到了山顶。下山又用了一个小时。因此,我们有大把的时间来吃东西。
Jingjing: Did you have BBQ also?
京晶:你们也户外烧烤了吗?
Mark: Nah. There was a BBQ place, but it was too smoky, and had a big group that was making lots of noise. So, we went to a neighboring restaurant and had farm-fresh food.
马克:没有啦。那的确有一块户外烧烤区,但那里烟熏火燎的,还有一大群人,非常吵。所以我们去了一个附近的餐馆吃了新鲜的农家菜。
Jingjing: Wait a second. What's the name of the mountain you climbed?
京晶:等一下。你们爬的那座山叫什么名字?
Mark: Pheonix Mountain—why?
马克:凤凰山,怎么了?
Jingjing: No way! That's where I was with my friends.
京晶:不会吧!那就是我跟我朋友们去的地方啊。
Mark: Huh? You were the group making so much noise?
马克:啊?!那群吵吵闹闹的人原来是你们啊?
Jingjing: We were a bit noisy at times. You should have recognized me and come over to say hi.
京晶:我们是偶尔有点吵。早知道你要是能认出我来,然后过来跟我打声招呼就好啦!
Mark: Sorry! My stomach was about to cave in.
马克:不好意思啦!我当时肚子都快饿扁了。
Jingjing: No worries.
京晶:没关系啦。
