每每谈一场恋爱就如同读了一本新书 Falling in Love is Like Reading a Book

时间:2020-07-21 14:40:01 阅读: 作者:adminhwh

Starting a new book is a risk, just like falling in love. You have to commit to it. You open the pages knowing a little bit about it maybe, from the back or from a blurb on the front. But who knows, right? Those bits and piecesaren'talways right.
读一本新书恰似坠入爱河,是场冒险。你得全身心投入进去。翻开书页之时,从序言简介直至封底你或许都知之甚少。但谁又不是呢?字里行间的只言片语亦不总是正确。
Sometimes people advertise themselves as one thing and then when you get deep into it you realize that they’re something completely different. Either there was some good marketing attached to a terrible book, or the story was only explained in a superficial way and once you reach the middle of the book, you realize there’s so much more to this book than anyone could have ever told you.
有时候你会发现,人们自我推销时是一种形象,等你再深入了解后,他们又完全是另一种模样了。有时拙作却配有出色的市场推销,故事的叙述却流于表面,阅读过半后,你方才发觉:这本书真是出乎意料地妙不可言,这种感受只要靠自己去感悟!
You start off slow. The story is beginning to unfold. You’re unsure. It’s a big commitment lugging this time around. Maybe this book won’t be that great but you’ll feel guilty about putting it down. Maybe it’ll be so awful you’ll keep hate-reading or just set it down immediately and never pick it up again. Or maybe you’ll come back to it some night, drunk or lonely — needing something to fill the time, but it won’t be any better than it was when you first started reading it.
你慢慢翻页,故事开始缓慢展开,而你却依旧心存犹疑。阅读这样的巨著需要百分之百的投入。或许它并不是你想象中的伟大的作品,奈何半途弃读会使你觉得不安。又或许,故事真的很烂,你要么咬牙苦读下去,要么立刻放弃束之高阁。抑或某个酒醉或孤寂的夜晚,你又重新捡起这本书来——但只为打发时光。不管怎样,它并没有比你初次阅读时好多少。
Maybe you’re worn out. You’ve read tons of books before. Some were just light weights on a Kindle or Nook, no big deal really. Others were Infinite Jest-style burdens, heavy on your back or in your purse. Weighing you down all the time. Maybe you’ve taken some time off from reading because the last few books you read just weren’t worth it. Do they even write new, great works of literature anymore? Maybe that time you fell in love with a book before will just never happen for you again. Maybe it’s a once in a lifetime feeling and you’re never gonna find it again.
或许你已疲惫至极。你曾阅览无数,有些无足轻重无甚重要,而有些却像荒诞讽刺的包袱,沉重地压在你背上或藏在你行囊里,随时都可能压垮你。或许因为上次读的书索然无味,你已暂时避开阅读时光。还会有优秀的新文学作品么?只怕等你再次恋上一本书前,那优秀的新作品永远也不会出现罢。或许这真的就是千年等一回、除却巫山不是云了。
Or something exciting could happen. Maybe this will become your new favorite book. That’s always a possibility right? That’s the beauty of risk. The reward could actually be worth it. You invest your time and your brain power in the words and what you get back is empathy and a new understanding and pure wonder.
当然,生活总会有新鲜事发生,你也会有新的爱书。一切总有可能,不是吗?这正是冒险的魅力。得到的也大抵物有所值吧。你在字里行间播撒时间和心思,自然便可收获新的感悟、理解与遐思。
How could someone possibly know you like this? Some stranger, some author, some character. It’s like they’re seeing inside your soul. This book existed inside some book store, on a shelf, maybe handled by other people and really it was just waiting for you pick it up and crack the spine. It was waiting to speak to you. To say, “You are not alone.”
怎会有人知道你喜欢它呢?某个陌生人、作者,抑或书中的某个角色。他们似乎能看透你的心思。这本书,它陈列在某隅书店的书架上、它经人辗转,真的就像是在等你捧起翻阅,等着向你低语:“我会伴你左右。”
You just want more of the story. You want to keep reading, maybe everything this author’s ever written. You wish it would never end. The closer it gets to the smaller side of the pages, the slower you read, wanting to savor it all. This book is now one of your favorites forever. You will always wish you could go back to never having read it and pick it up fresh again, but also you know you’re better for having this close, inside you, covering your heart and mind.
你渴望更多故事,你继续阅读,甚至搜集这位作者以往所有作品。你希望故事永远延续。书页越翻越薄,你也越读越慢,心里想着要细细含英咀华。此刻,它确定无疑就是你永恒的至爱了。你总想一读再读,每次捧起它都感觉新奇如初,而你也明白:因为内心深处的每一缕思绪都与它这般亲密,你已变得更加美好。

    我很信赖这个平台的品牌,孩子每天都听,跟外教互动很好,对孩子教育的投资可不能省啊,现在小孩班上的同学个个都报班,外语能力当然也不能缺乏的。

    儿子今年5岁了,为了能够让他提前接触到英语给他报了一个网上授课的英语,让他了解一些词汇量,最起码对他没有坏处多学习一些技能,在他以后只有好处没有坏处,所以就抱着这种心情让他去学习,因为工作的原因,我们不能送孩子去培训机构里面学习,英语就解决我们这个问题了,在网上授课,还能一对一的辅导孩子,效果也挺不错 的,儿子已经在里面半年了,记住了很多基本的单词了,相信儿子一定会越来越棒,也相信,很棒。

    为了让小孩跟上时代的轨迹不得不提前做好准备,让孩子再能接受的范围内先把第二语言巩固起来,就像中文一样,一定要跟外国人学英文才能学到最正宗的,所以找培训机构的时候格外在乎外教授课的学校,英语就不错,线上的教学我还可以再身边及时纠正他的态度,老师很负责没有太多的作业布置,几乎都再互动中给孩子留下深刻的印象,学的单词几遍就记住了,非常好

    英语是很多家长关注的一个少儿英语培训机构,以前好像全名是叫做dadaabc英语,现在一律称之为英语了,这个机构可以说是在线少儿英语培训机构里面的佼佼者了,很多无暇顾及孩子英语学习的家长都青睐于它,给孩子在英语报名学习可以在家里和外教面对面教学,学好一口流利的英语

    这个教育培训班是听儿子的同学提起的,所以我也就抱着试一试的态度,报了一两节课先。听完以后感觉还可以,但是儿子不太感冒,后来又换了2家线下的培训班,儿子回来跟我说还不如英语好呢,和孩子爸爸商量了一下,又给儿子报了,没想到儿子越来越有兴趣,说刚开始不太熟悉外教老师造成了误解,也跟老师解释清楚啦

    英语是一家在线英语培训机构,外教一对一上课,只要家里有网就能上课,这种线上培训模式挺方便的,也受到很多年轻妈妈的青睐。另外,少儿英语的外教好像基本来自欧美的国家,在口音上相对来说比较正宗!!朋友家的小孩在少儿英语上过一年的课,据她反馈还不错,现在他们家孩子英语发音还比较纯正,性格也开朗了很多,在街上遇到外国人都能很流畅的交流!
