【英语口语】美语情景对话 第37期:英国与日本 England and Japan
Todd: Clare, you’re from England.
Clare: That’s right.
Todd: How would you compare England and Japan?
Clare: Well, I think, let’s take price–wise, they’re actually quite similar. Well, not, maybe notEngland as a whole but, say Japan and London is very similar, I found in supermarkets, inhousing, and things like that. In other respects, the people are certainly different. I mean, British people are renowned to be very polite as Japanese people are too, and Japanesepeople are very helpful as well, probably more so than British people I would say. Mm, whatelse?
Todd: What about the weather?
Clare: The weather? Well, it’s been raining a lot in Japan recently so we could say that it’s quitesimilar, although actually, when I was e–mailing my parents, they’ve been going on about howthere hasn’t been much rain the past couple of months and how they think there is going to bea drought. That typical British stereotype of the weather is not true at the minute and it’sprobably wetter in Japan, but yeah, I think that climate wise it’s quite similar in terms oftemperature. It’s definitely much more humid here than at home.
Todd: OK. Thanks a lot.
