最近跑去教兒美,還在適應期,
和我以前教國中的經驗相比,
我覺得兒美和國中英文差距很大,
不過沒有什麼誰好誰壞的問題啦,
純粹就是學習目的和方法不同,
學兒美的小朋友上國中不一定可以適應得很好。:)

The following is ticketing information of THSR (Taiwan High Speed Rail) with Chinese version below every paragraphs, which you need to highlight to read. When you read the Chinese versioin, there are some line-throughed words, which are the original lines but don't fit in the English version. To help students understand what the Engilsh version says, I attach my own translation (underlined) right after the very words. Other related information can be searched from THSR official website.

在翻譯的時候,英文數字是否可以等同中文數字呢?
來看看以下幾個有趣的例子,你就知道兩邊的文化差異囉!:)

學英文這麼多年,
你是不是覺得有些單字長得很像?
把它們調過來、換過去,就可以變一個新字出來?
在英文裡面,這種遊戲叫做「scrambled words」,
今天我要介紹一個網站專門玩這個遊戲,

只要是英文老師,一定都知道有個複習英文單字的好方法:word puzzle,
玩法是這樣的,在一個正方形的字母堆中,找出幾個特定的單字,
比如說像下面這樣:
e n b e l w
y e l l o w
e e a r e h

剛剛在 plurk 上面看到有人分享一篇文章:一語雙關
這篇文章內容我以前應該看過,
不過那時候好像沒有中文翻譯(我本身就很少看中譯),
現在看到了這個版本的中譯,覺得有幾句翻得怪怪的,
想自己來試翻一下~

 Everybody knows that men hate to stop and ask for directions. My boyfriend is no different. Every time we get lost, we drive around for hours before he finally pulls over and asks for help. 

 One Satureday we saw an ad in the newspaper for a picnic at a farm outside of town. We fixed up our old cowboy hats, cut out the map from the newspaper and started driving. After a few hours, I brought up the fact that we were lost. Of course my boyfriend lost his temper when I suggested we ask someone for directions. 

 "I can find it!" he yelled.

Romantic Pisces, you are the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac. You are regarded as the sign of sensitivity and receptivity, and are a true chameleon by being mutable and infinitely complex. Your keywords are communion and vision, and you have the capacity to go beyond this world to the one of dreams and the spirit.

Your ruler Neptune, the planet of confusion and chaos, gets people out of habits that imprison them so that they question themselves and can discover another path toward growth and spirituality. Neptune is also the planet of imagination and illusion, and governs the dream world with all its many facets.

Pisces is the third of the three water signs, which means that you are concerned with the realm of emotion and feeling. You deal with sensitivity, intuition, and deeper psychic aspects of life. You are able to conduct unconscious telepathic communication with others.

Your sign, dear Aquarius, is the eleventh of the zodiac and is considered to be the sign of perspective, the future, and new projects. The water bearer symbolizes intellectual development through communication and innovation. Of all signs, you are the most idealistic and humanitarian, with a strong sense of community and fraternity.

Your ruler Uranus, the planet of change and revolution, represents originality and a strong drive for adventure and freedom. Uranus is also called the rebel planet, and its energy is radical, sudden, and unpredictable.

Aquarius is the third of the three air signs, which means that your intellectuality is expressed as an intuitive grasp of universal principles, along with a concern for the universal well-being of humanity.

Practical Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, represents discipline, ambition, and rationality, making you the most determined and persistent sign of the zodiac. Since you have such an unshakable faith in your own power, you have an extreme capacity for hard work and endurance.

Saturn, the planet of challenges and restrictions, is the ruler of Capricorn. Saturn is sometimes associated with bad luck; however, without the obstacles of Saturn we would never grow and evolve any further, which makes this planet the one that makes us tough, because it teaches us to develop patience and staying power.

Capricorn is the third earth sign, which means you know that you can't live on inspiration alone, and therefore, you have become a down-to-earth realist, and are willing to take care of the daily chores. For that reason, stability and consistency are very important to you.

As a future-oriented Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac, you are considered the most prophetic of the signs because you have the urge to understand the meaning of life. Also the most mobile sign of the zodiac, you explore beyond physical and mental boundaries, and thrive on freedom and liberty.

Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, is the ruler of Sagittarius, and brings optimism and joy to life. Jupiter is also associated with a person's spiritual beliefs and philosophic standards.

Sagittarius is the third fire sign. This fiery influence is like a candle in the dark, lighting the way to knowledge and wisdom. You walk through life high-spirited and openhearted, always seeking the truth. You are farsighted and goal-directed and are gifted in grasping general principles.
