收听与下载

John: Hello, welcome to BBC Learning English, I'm John, with me this week, ChenLi.

Chen Li: 大家好, 欢迎收听BBC英语教学节目。今天的城市掠影节目和平常有些不同,it's a little bit different. But in what way, John?

John: Well, by listening to On the Town you'll find plenty of ways to enjoy the towns and cities of Britain, but what happens when you are tired out by city life, when you are exhausted from all the sightseeing and days out?

Chen Li: I don't know.

John: Well, why not get out of one of the many busy cities to the countryside? If you are staying in London then you could take a short weekend break on the north coast of Norfolk.

Chen Li: You can take a short weekend break, 短暂的周末假期。John提议去北诺福克海岸。

Bluebells

Bluebells in the English countryside

John: We met Sarah Wise who lives in the lovely seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea. It's a great place to base yourself if you want to explore the coast and the countryside.

Chen Li: This is what Sarah told us.



Well, we're really lucky to live here at Wells-next-the-Sea, because it's a really beautiful town right here on the coast. But, the problem is, my favourite things are bluebells, and there aren't any here. So, we're going to go a bit further along the coast to a place called Wiveton Down, which at this time of year should be absolutely carpeted in bluebells. So, we're going to take a picnic and go and explore.

Sarah Wise, resident of Norfolk

John: Sarah says she's lucky that she lives at Wells-next-the-Sea but she has a problem.

Chen Li: 是的 Sarah 也有一个问题 she's got a problem, 她喜欢她所居住的这个海边城市,但是,她特别喜欢的一些植物, 这里却根本没有,她喜欢野风信子。

John: Yes, she loves bluebells.

Chen Li: 所以她要带我们去野餐。

John: A picnic.

Chen Li: 她还准备带我们去一个美丽的地方去看一些野生动植物,这里叫威福顿坡,这次她顺便也带上了自己的孩子。


Go on. Go and give them a good sniff. They are a bit strong. It's a very strong smell isn't it, yeah. Look, what's that you've got there Wills? Now he's got, he's either caught a hawthorn fly. And that lady back there said he was a St. Mark's fly, because they come out on St. Mark's Day, which is April the 23 rd. But they are lovely, aren't they? They are all furry.

Sarah Wise and her children


Chen Li: 孩子们发现了野风信子,他们说可以闻到很浓的味道。

John: They smell a bit strong, meaning the bluebells have quite a strong aroma.

Chen Li: 芳香。

John: OK, by this stage it was time to stop and have some food. Now when you are out in the countryside it's always great to have a picnic. That's if the weather is good enough, of course.

Chen Li: And that's exactly what Sarah did with her children.


Well, we're now up here having a picnic on top of Wiveton Down and it's a beautiful place. It's quite unusual as you normally see bluebells growing in ancient woodlands, but they also grow on north facing slopes by the sea. And it's fantastic. It's completely unspoilt. Nobody has been at it with chemicals and pesticides.

Sarah Wise

John: You know Li that really sounds idyllic, doesn't it?

Chen Li: It sounds really lovely! Sarah 说通常只能在古森林看到这些野风信子。 Ancient woodland 古森林。

John: Wonderful, That's it from this edition of On the Town, and we'll let Sarah and her children end the programme for us.

Chen Li: 再会!



Well, we've had our picnic, and we're now just about to get home, but we've just found this very nice bench here, and our last look out. So anyway, shall we get the dogs and go home then? Yeah. Ok then. Bye. Bye.

Sarah Wise and her children
