Lesson Transcript

Anthony: Hi I am Anthony.
Gayle: 大家好,我是Gayle。

Anthony: You can only go every 5 days, that’s crazy.
Gayle: 没有啊,我们只有星期二可以有水。
Anthony: So what about the other days?
Gayle: I don’t know.
Anthony: 没有水。 Okay. So in the village, in the marketplace, there are plenty of things that you can taste and try and see.
Gayle: 嗯,我们可以在这里找到吃的,喝的,用的。
Anthony: That’s great. So what if I need to get a pair of shoes repaired?
Gayle: 修鞋。
Anthony: Or buy a pair of shoes?
Gayle: 买鞋。
Anthony: Okay so there is plenty of things to buy. You can even buy some birds.
Gayle: 但是这些鸟太贵了。
Anthony: Why is that?
Gayle: Because the birds should be in the trees.
Anthony: Not in cages, I agree. So we decided to visit another little boutique outside the village. These patterns were developed in the village a long time ago, right?
Gayle: 对,这里是一个小商店。这里的东西都是他们自己做的。

Hi Al

Thanks a lot for pointing out the mistake. I'll see if we can get it fixed soon. And you are absolutely right about the 小商店,I think in this context, it's better to be translated as small shop. I think the name 便利店 actually came from Japanese. The equivalent of original Chinese is actually 小卖铺。But these days most people prefer to say 便利店。


By the way there is no such word as 超商. I think you wanted to say 超市 which is short for 超级市场。便利商店, we rarely say that. :wink:


Best,

Jane

one minor error in the English in the words at the end


小商店

should be convenience store not convenient store.


Wouldn't one of these be more accurate for convienience store ?


as doesn't 小商店 translate as small store ?
