收听与下载

Li: 大家好,我是杨莉。

Tracy: Li, your shoes are gorgeous. Are they new?

Li: Yes. I had to buy them. 这双鞋挺贵的,不过可以搭配很多不同种类的衣服。

Tracy: I can see why you bought them. Those kitten heels are perfect for work and partying.

Li: Why do people call them kitten heels?

Tracy: Honestly, I don’t know. They just do. Perhaps it’s because they are as cute as a kitten.

Li: 和小猫一样可爱。那么女鞋中的 kitten heel 和 stiletto heel 比起来都有哪些区别呢?

Tracy: That’s a good question. They are both types of high-heeled shoe. A stiletto is a tall, slim-heeled shoe.

Li: A stiletto 是鞋跟又高又细的高跟鞋。

Tracy: They are usually considered to be quite sexy.

Legs in high heels

How high are your heels?

Li: Ok, and a kitten heel?

Tracy: A kitten heel is a shoe with slightly shorter heel. The heels are usually no more than a couple of inches tall.

Li: 就是说,中跟鞋的鞋跟要低一些,大概有两英寸左右。

Tracy: Exactly.

Li: 那么中跟鞋看起来是不是比高跟鞋更职业一些?如果是上班的工作环境,是不是穿中跟鞋比高跟鞋更合适?

Tracy: Nowadays, women wear all different types of shoes. They might wear kitten heels or stilettos or another type of shoe to work.

Li: What do you prefer to wear: kitten heels or stilettos?

Tracy: That’s a tough one. I’m quite short so I often wear stilettos, although I think kitten heels are more comfortable.

Li: 让我们来听听这些英国女孩子都喜欢穿什么样的鞋子。


Examples

I normally wear stilettos to work. I think they look smarter with a suit than kitten heels.

I don’t own a single pair of kitten heels. I’m definitely a stiletto fan.

I have a couple of pairs of kitten heels which I wear to work but my favourite shoes are my stilettos.


Li: That’s quite interesting. 比起 kitten heels,她们好像更喜欢穿 stilettos?这又是为什么呢?

Tracy: I don’t know, but there is a trend just now for very tall high heels.

Li: 是的,这些接受我们采访的女孩子们的穿着都是相当的时尚。

Tracy: Talking of very fashionable people Li, we should finish today’s programme.

Li: 谢谢大家收听我们今天BBC英语教学为您制作的《地道英语》节目。

Tracy: Join us next time at www.bbcchina.com.cn. Bye.

Li: Bye.
