背景提示

There are a lot of opinions on which is the most important meal of the day. In the U.S. and Canada, many people believe that breakfast is important because it starts your day off right. Others say it doesn't matter; what counts is to have three well-balanced meals daily. Still others feel they can get by with just one big meal a day.

人们对一日三餐哪餐最重要始终意见不一。在美国和加拿大,许多人认为早餐最重要,因为早餐能让你这一天有个好的开始。也有人觉得这没什么,重要的是一日三餐营养平衡。甚至还有人觉得一天只要有一顿大餐就可以了。

重点句型

1. Have you had dinner yet? 你吃晚饭了吗?

2. What's for dinner? 这顿晚饭吃什么?

3. I always eat three square meals a day. 我总是每天三顿饭都好好吃。

本课学习提示:

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Many people's schedules are tied to them. Join Carl and John as they talk with co-workers about meals.

早餐、午餐和晚餐!很多人在安排时间时都会考虑到它们。和Carl 、John 还有他们的同事一起讨论吃饭的问题吧。

Is it time to eat?

Talk about meals with these terms!

是不是该吃饭了?学会用文中的词汇来讨论一日三餐吧!

文化差异

In America and Canada, dinner is usually the biggest, most important meal of the day. This may have evolved from the fact that most businesses allow just one hour for lunch, which is not long enough to have a big meal. In China, lunch is frequently the main meal.

在美国和加拿大,晚餐通常是一天中的正餐。这也许是因为大多数公司只给员工一个小时的午饭时间,想用这段时间吃顿大餐是不太可能的。而在中国午餐通常都是正餐。

English Text

What: Discussion and planning for a meal.

Who: Don't you want to eat?

Why: Everyone talks about eating!

A couple of weeks later, Carl, John and a few co-workers are on their way to lunch. John tells Carl the good news; Kelly and Sandra passed the midterms with flying colors. Carl wants everyone to meet his new girlfriend Julia, so he decides to hold a small party. He wants John, Kelly, Sandra, Amy and Bob to come. Is everyone game for a party?

Carl: Lunchtime! Let's grab a bite to eat.

John: I'm ready!

Frank: I had a big breakfast, so I think I'll skip lunch today.

Mira: Not me! I always eat three square meals a day. Where are we going to eat?

Carl: Let's go out for Mexican food (everyone agrees)

(On the way to lunch, John tells Carl the good news)

John: Carl, I spoke to Kelly last night. She and Sandra easily passed the midterms.

Carl: Excellent news! Why don't we have a little party at my place to celebrate? At the same time, you can all meet my new girlfriend.

John: I'm all for it.

Carl: OK, I'll call Sandra and Kelly tonight. I'll ask Sandra to invite her friends Amy and Bob too … (temporary lull in the conversation)
