今日美语MP3:DIY 自己动手

DIY 自己动手

【intro 今日导读】

Say you have a problem with a door in your house. It doesn’t quite open how you want it to. Would you call a professional to come fix it, or would you try do-it-yourself (DIY)?

There are a lot of tutorials online that can help you solve household problems by yourself. All you need is a computer, some tools and a little initiative. After you fix something, you may realize that DIY can be really fun.

Amy and Kellie are talking about DIY. Find out what Amy needs to fix in today’s English lesson about home projects.

 

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Amy_L:  So, I’ve been on the Internet, looking at online tutorials, to learn how to do something that’s kind of weird.

Kellie:  Oh, really? Are you getting into DIY?

Amy_L:  How did you know? Yeah.

Kellie:  It’s just so trendy these days. Everybody wants to be an amateur, craftsperson or something.

Amy_L:  What I’m doing isn’t that glamorous. I’m trying to figure out how to fix my toilet. It’s doing this weird thing. But I think it’s really great when you can learn a skill, then you can be self-reliant. And then have pride that you fixed something on your own.

Kellie:  I’m not very good at doing things myself. Plus, I don’t have the right tools. So, I always just call a professional to do it. But I think that’s cool that you’re taking the initiative to fix something yourself.

Amy_L:  Yeah, well if there’s anything that you ever need to get fixed, we can research it and figure out how to do it together.

Kellie:  Alright, well, let’s try!
