美语情形对话 第379期:Canada and the U.S. 加拿大和美国

宣布工夫:2018-04-14内容泉源:VOA英语学习网

Todd: Now, Mike, you're from Canada but you lived in America for a good period of time.

托德:迈克,你来自加拿大,但是在美国生存了很长一段工夫。

Mike: Right!

迈克:对!

Todd: How would you compare the two counties?

托德:那你会怎样比拟这两个国度呢?

Mike: Well, the most obvious difference is Canada is a lot colder, I think than the United States in general, that's cause were north of the U.S., but culturally, I think that the US has a lot, many more culturally different areas within the country than Canada does. Canada as a culture, even though it's different from east to west, for people in Atlantic Canada are quite different from, let's say, Ontario, or Quebec, different from the West Coast. In the U.S., there are many more of those cultural pockets like New York for example is very different from Florida, which is very different from Louisiana, or Georgia, which is very different from Texas of course and all of those are very different from California and all of those, again, are very different from the North West part of the U.S., Seattle and that area, so the U.S. has many, many more sort of culturally diverse areas, very, unique, and that's one, I think one significant difference between Canada and the U.S. Another difference is, Canada is obviously, one thing that many tourists point to, is a reason for going to Canada, Canada is safer than the U.S. Again, I think partly cause of gun laws and things like that, but just in general, I think the history of Canada sort of is a lot more, is a lot less, I guess, it was a lot less, there was no revolution really in Canada and there was in the U.S. so I mean I think the roots are a little bit less, more subdued, I'd say, so that makes a difference culturally. However, I think that because Canada is more safe, it's also more boring than the U.S., so the U.S., it’s maybe a little bit riskier but it's a lot more fun. Canada is safer but, again, more boring.

迈克:嗯,总的来说,显然最次要的差别点便是加拿大比美国冷得多,这是由于加拿大在美国北边。我以为相比于加拿大,美国有更多文明差别的地区。加拿大的文明是一个全体,固然东部和西部的文明有所差别,来自加拿大大泰西区的人们和来自安大概省或是魁北克省的人们十分差别,和来自西海岸的人们也有许多差别点。而美国有很多文明地区,像纽约同佛罗里达州的文明就十分差别,同路易斯安那州或是乔治亚州的文明也差别,固然得克萨斯州也有差别的文明,而这些地域同加州的文明也大不相反,固然美国北部地域也有共同的文明,比方西雅图,以是美国有很多文明多样性的地域,它们都拥有共同的文明,我想这便是加拿大和美国此中一个紧张的差别点。别的一个差别点便是,显然有很多游客前去加拿大游览的缘由是,加拿大比美国平安。我想局部缘由是枪支执法,总体来说,我以为加拿大的汗青比美国短得多,实在加拿大没有真正意义上的反动,而美国则阅历了反动时期,加拿大的血脉要更平和,以是这就形成了文明上的差别。并且,我想这也是加拿大更平安的缘由,固然如许也使加拿大比美国单调,在美国生存大概危害更大,但是那边有更多的兴趣。加拿大更平安,但是异样也更单调。

Todd: That's interesting, I mean, I don't know. I haven't been to Canada but I would like to go.

托德:这很故意思,我是说我并不晓得这些。我从未去过加拿大,不外我很想去看看。

Mike: Definitely come up and visit and you'll know why you enjoy the States so much.

迈克:你肯定要来玩耍,如许你就晓得你为什么这么喜好美国了。

Todd: I'm not so sure about that. All right, thanks, Mike.

托德:这点我可不克不及确定。好吧,谢谢你,迈克。

Mike: Sure.

迈克:不必谢。
