学好一门外语竟是如此的重要!小伙伴们,你们还木有意识到吗?世界首富比尔·盖茨虽然坐拥万千财富,但你知道他有什么样的遗憾吗?这名白手起家的亿万富翁坦言,他觉得自己不会一门外语真是大大的失策!他表示,希望自己会说法语、阿拉伯语或是汉语,并且非常羡慕脸书的创始人马克·扎克伯格能说一口流利的汉语……童鞋们,还等啥?表后悔,现在赶快学好英语吧!

The world's richest man might seem to have it all, but Bill Gates has one regret. The self-made billionaire said he felt stupid for not knowing any foreign languages.

Speaking in his third Ask Me Anything question-and-answer session for online forum Reddit, the Microsoft founder revealed that he wished he spoke French, Arabic or Chinese.

He said: "I took Latin and Greek in high school and got A's and I guess it helps my vocabulary."

"I keep hoping to get time to study one of these - probably French because it is the easiest. I did Duolingo for a while but didn't keep it up."

Gates, who is worth $79.3billion, praised Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for stunning an audience in Beijing when he spoke fluent Mandarin.

He said: "Mark Zuckerberg amazingly learned Mandarin and did a Q&A with Chinese students - incredible."

【Key Points】

英文中,“遗憾“可以用regret表示。

“对……深表遗憾“可以说express one's deep regret over sth.

“遗憾地告诉某人“则为regret to tell sb that..例句:I regret to tell you that my friend is ill.

此外,regret doing sth则表示“后悔曾经做过某事“。
