故事時間|I, Robot(03)

By Isaac Asimov

Mrs. Weston waited patiently for two minutes, then impatiently for two more, and finally broke the silence.


“George!”

“Hmpph?”

“George, I say! Will you put down that paper and look at me?”

The paper rustled to the floor and Weston turned a weary face toward his wife,


“What is it, dear?”

“You know what it is, George. It’s Gloria and that terrible machine.”

“What terrible machine?”

“Now don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about. It’s that robot Gloria calls Robbie. He doesn’t leave her for a moment.”



單字在下面唷!



rustle (v.) 沙沙作響、發出摩擦聲

weary (adj.) 疲倦的

pretend (v.) 假裝


rustle看到有t,是不是很自然就想唸出來?

weary看到wear+y,是不是很開心的想唸「威兒ㄖㄨㄧ」?

我看到直覺也是如此,但設了連結就表示其中有詐!查字典真的很重要唷!才不會好不容易學了新單字,找到機會想說這個字時對方卻聽不懂……

之前分享過,字典+Youglish是穩固基礎的好幫手,是真的是真的是真的!


break the silence 打破沉默

What is it? 怎麼了、什麼事,也很好用!



這次的分享我會跳著挑選不同的段落,因為篇幅稍長不能全部分享,但還是希望能透過這樣的方式讓大家看到故事的轉折起伏。
