介绍一个家庭 (jiā tíng:Family)

- 作者 增田三二(日本) • Intermediate Mandarin

小时候,我有一个同学住在一个大家庭里。他家有很多人,除了父母以外,他还有八个兄弟姐妹,一共十一口人。我家除了父母以外,也有四个兄弟姐妹,一共八口人,也算(suàn:to regard as)是大家庭了,可他家比我家还多三个人,你说是不是一个大大大家庭呢?有一天,我去他家看他,现在我还能想起来那时候的情景。我一到他家就吓(xià)了一跳,房间很小,人很多,显得(xiǎn dé: seem) 格外(gé wài=特别)拥挤(yōng jǐ:be packed),那时的光景(guāng jǐng:circumstances; scene)就好像在动物园里一样。我的朋友到门口接了我,只见他身后的楼梯上一个挨(āi:in order;close to) 一个地坐着他的弟弟们,那个光景就像树🌲杈(chā: fork of a tree) 上的好多只猴子(hóu zi: monkey🐒);地板上躺着她的妹妹们,就像一只只可爱的小熊猫(xióng māo: panda 🐼)一样。在他家里的时候,我想:“以后再也不用去动物园看动物了,我可以到朋友家来,在这儿不但可以看到跟动物园一样的风景,而且还可以一起聊聊天儿、玩一玩儿,你说是不是比动物园更有趣(qù)呢?! ”

A fishing rod and a basket of fish which one you would like to choose?
一高僧(sēng: A monk)问我:"一根鱼竿(yú gān:a fishing rod)和一筐(kuāng:a busket  )鱼,你选(xuǎn)哪个?"我说:"我要一筐鱼。"高僧摇(yáo)头笑道(dào: to say) :“施主(shī zhu: designation of a person by a monk)肤浅(fū qiǎn: shallow)了,授(shòu: to teach, same as "jiāo:教”)人以鱼(yú: A fish),不如(bù rú: not as good as...)授人以渔(yú: to fish),这个道理(dào li:justification) 你懂吗?鱼你吃完就没了,鱼竿你可以钓(diāo)很多鱼,可以用一辈(bèi)子!"我说:"我要一筐鱼之后把(bǎ:"bǎ" structure)它卖了,可以买很多鱼竿。然后把鱼竿租(zū:to rent)给别人,收租金,再自己留一根杆继续(jì xü: to continue)可钓很多魚…"高僧:"阿弥陀佛(may the lord Buddha preserve us!)……贫僧不想和你们东北人唠嗑(lāo kē:(dialect) to chat),same as "liáo tiān")…………
