每日对话围绕一家人在美国50个州的旅行见闻展开。请来跟随他们一起体验地方风情和历史。这个对话系列适于中级或中级以上英语水平的学生使用。

今天这一家人来到印第安纳州(Indiana)。他们正在参观印第安纳波利斯儿童博物馆(Children’s Museum of Indianapolis),一位讲解员在讲解。

Guide: This is the largest children’s museum in the world. Over 1 million people visit the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis each year.

Claudine: Sam and I obviously aren’t young children, so is there anything here that we’d enjoy?

Guide: Absolutely. We have a planetarium and a carousel that people of all ages enjoy.

Gina: Are there any exhibits that are particularly interesting?

Guide: We have a permanent exhibit featuring three famous children and the impact they had on the world. People seem to enjoy that exhibit quite a bit.

Paul: Do other exhibits rotate?

Guide: Yes. We have many rotating exhibits, and we are constantly thinking up ideas forinnovative exhibits in the future. Let’s get started on the tour, and I can answer your questions along the way.

让我们复习一些词语:

guide:讲解员,导游

planetarium:天文馆

carousel (也叫a merry-go-round) :转马(一圈固定在地面转盘上的彩色木马,人骑在上面随转盘转动,有时木马边旋转,边上下起伏。)

An exhibit (或exhibition) :展览,展品

Permanent :永久的。A permanent exhibit指博物馆的常设展。

Impact :(对某事或某人的强大)影响力

在这个对话中,动词 to rotate的意思是定期轮换。A rotating exhibit指博物馆中轮换陈设的展品

Innovative :创新的
