今日美语MP3: 耐心 Patience

2015-07-22    来源:Englishbaby.com    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

耐心
Patience

【intro 今日导读】

We can’t always get what we want. At least, that’s what the Rolling Stones tell us! Even if we prefer instant gratification, sometimes we have to practice self-restraint. As kids, having to wait was difficult, but as adults, it shouldn’t be too hard. Is there anything so important that it can’t be waited for?

It’s true that there are exceptions to this way of thinking. If there’s an emergency, it’s not necessary to be patient. Stay level-headed, but get the help that’s needed right away. If not, take a breath and relax. As they say, “Good things come to those who wait.”

Brian has no control over his wish to see his birthday gifts. Find out what Sara has to say in today’s English lesson.

 

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Brian:  It is my birthday next weekend, and I cannot wait. In fact, I saw some of my presents and I had to sneak a peak.

Sara_R:  You did?

Brian:  Yes, I just don’t have the patience to wait. And when it’s there, I don’t have that self-restraint that some people do.

Sara_R:  I’m way more level-headed. I can totally wait. I have so much patience.

Brian:  When you were little, during the holidays, you never snuck around and tried to find your presents?

Sara_R:  Well, maybe when I was little. But now, as I’m older…

Brian:  It’s so hard for me. I just want instant gratification. When I’m hungry, I go find food and eat it. I just can’t wait for mealtime.

Sara_R:  You’ve got to get it.

Brian:  I’ve got to get it! Yeah. I guess I might have a lack of control.

Sara_R:  Well, I might be that way about food.

Brian:  Oh, yeah.

Sara_R:  Do you want to get something to eat?

Brian:  Yes. Immediately.

Sara_R:  Great!
