新概念英语 - 小编笔记
新概念英语 - 教材原文
I had an amusing experience last year. After I had left a small village in the south of France, I drove on to the next town. On the way, a young man waved to me. I stopped and he asked me for a lift. As soon as he had got into the car, I said good morning to him in French and he replied in the same language. Apart from a few words, I do not know any French at all. Neither of us spoke during the journey. I had nearly reached the town, when the young man suddenly said, very slowly, 'Do you speak English?' As I soon learnt, he was English himself!

去年我有过一次有趣的经历。在离开法国南部的一个小村庄后， 我继续驶往下一个城镇。途中，一个青年人向我招手。我把车停下， 他向我提出要求搭车。他一上车，我就用法语向他问好， 他也同样用法语回答我。除了个别几个单词外，我根本不会法语。旅途中我们谁也没讲话。就要到达那个镇时，那青年突然开了口， 慢慢地说道“你会讲英语吗？” 我很快了解到，他自己就是个英国人！
