Part Two: Dialogues
1. Traffic Jam交通堵塞
A: Oh, damn. There’s another traffic jam on the highway.
B: How can there be a traffic jam on a 16-lane highway every day?

A: There are just too many people, and too many cars.
B: I wonder if there was an accident.
A: No, they just said it too many people were trying to get off at the Capitol exits.
B: Well, let’s put on some music. We’re going to be stuck in this for a while.
A: All right, what do you want to listen to?
B: How about some Beatles?
A: Yeah, all right.
A: 哦,真糟糕。路上又堵车了。
B: 16车道的主干道上怎么可能堵车?
A: 因为人太多,车太多。
B: 我想是否又出车祸了。
A: 不是,据说只是太多人转车到去国会大厦的出口。
B:哦。我们放点音乐吧。可能要困在这里一会儿。
A: 好吧。想听点什么?
B: 披头士的怎么样?
A: 好的,挺好。

2. Car Crash车祸
A: That looks like a bad accident.
B: Yeah, should we get out and help?
A: No, there’s a police car behind us. He’ll stop.
B: Looks like the one guy lost control in all this rain, and the other one hit him.
A: Yeah. It’s pretty bad, that car looks like a coke can.
B: These accidents always cause traffic jams on rainy days.
A: Yeah, it looks like we’re in for a long drive.
B: Ah, well. Put on the news. I got up late and missed it.
A: All right.
A: 好像又出了严重的车祸了。
B: 是呀。我们要下车帮帮忙吗?
A: 不用了,后面有一辆警车。他会停的。
B: 好像是有人的车在这样的下雨天车失控了,另一辆撞上了这辆。
A: 是。真是糟糕。那辆车撞得象个汽水罐一样。
B: 下雨天出车祸往往引起堵车。
A: 对。看起来我们的驾车时间不会短了。
B: 哦,那么,听点新闻吧。我起得晚,没听到新闻。
A: 好的。

3. Pollution污染
A: Man, that sunset is beautiful. I’ve never seen one so red.
B: Yeah, it’s pretty nice, but its so red because of air pollution.
A: Really?
B: Yeah, the smog from all these cars gets into the air and turns the sunlight red.
A: I never knew that.
B: Yeah, more people need to take public transportation or carpool.
A: Well, we’ve already done our part.
B: Yeah, it’s your turn to drive next week. Don’t be late picking me up.
A: Don’t worry.  I’m getting more sleep these days. The baby’s finally growing up a little more.

B: Well, give me a call if you can’t make it for some reason.
A: 瞧,日落真漂亮。我从未见过这么火红的日落。
B: 对,很漂亮。可是颜色之所以这么红是因为空气污染。
A: 真的吗?
B: 是的,汽车产出的烟雾进入空气中,日光便显出这种红色。
A: 我可不知道这个。
B: 是呀,应该有更多的人搭乘公交车或合伙使用小汽车。
A: 噢,我们自己已经尽力了。
B: 是呀,下个星期轮到你开车了。接我可别迟到了。
A: 不用着急。我近来睡眠时间更充足了。小孩子终于长大了一些了。
B: 哦,如果因为什么原因你不能来的话给我一个电话。
