这次CT主题是Samantha Brown带你畅游欧洲。

我们选择了美国著名电视台HBO的Travel Channel的经典节目:Passport to Europe with Smantha Brown。通过视频让大家了解了西班牙城市Montjuïc和英国伦敦的著名景点,了解欧洲著名旅游城市的风土人情。

在看了几遍视频之后,根据提供的文字资料(如下),参与者尽量用自己的语言描述特定的景点,如果有难度,则将文字资料阅读一遍,虽然挑战性没有前者大,但是也获得了一些地理知识和有用的词汇、语法知识。

不久后开心网和人人网也会有相关视频转帖给大家~

Samantha Brown是地道的美国人,讲的美英吐字清晰,用词简单日常,一般专注听的话,CET6水平的同学就能听懂,还可以学到很多地道的表达方法

Montjuïc:
If you visit Barcelona, you must take a cable car across the port up to Montjuïc Mountain, where the 1992 Olympic Games took place. Overlooking the city, the mountain has become a recreation and leisure destination. One highlight on Montjuïc is El Poble Espanyol, the Spanish Village, which was originally built for the 1929 Barcelona World Exposition. There are plenty of restaurants and shops to wander in and out of, and lots of artisans are featured throughout the village. You can really make a nice stay of it up on Montjuïc. If you do visit, get the Montjuïc Card. This visitor's pass gives you deals on transportation and admission.

Leicester Square and West End:

Leicester Square is a main meeting place for visitors. It has an entertainment district, mega-movie complexes and big restaurants. It's like the suburban mall gone crazy in an urban environment, but it's also a great place to buy cheap theater tickets. At the TKTS booths there, you can save as much as 50 percent on tickets. Tickets in hand, you're only a few blocks to London's main theater district, the West End, which is to London what Broadway is to New York. The theater is hugely popular in London. Take a walk down Shaftesbury Avenue, where all the theaters are, check out the billboards, and choose your play or musical.

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum: (这个大家很熟悉吧~ ^_^)

One of the most popular attractions in London is Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. If you don't believe me, the line is often an hour and a half long, and the entrance fee is really quite pricey! But never again will you be surrounded by so many celebrities, even if they are made of wax. It's a true honor to be represented there. The famous sit for the artists anywhere from 10 minutes to four hours. How do you get to be a wax figure? It's the people's choice. As a visitor, you can fill out a form to let management know whom you would most like to see. Some good tips to know when visiting Madame Tussaud's: There are family passes that take the bite out of the admission price. Also, do you want to beat the lines? Rally up a group of six or more, and you'll be able to go in through the group entrance with hardly a wait. You can also pay an escalated ticket price to skip the line. How's that for marketing?

escalate/'eskəleit/ vt. vi. 1. (使)逐步升级; (使)逐步扩大2. (使)更高, (使)更大

2.It's a true honor to be represented there.

Piccadilly Circus:

Just a short walk from the West End is the Times Square of London, Piccadilly Circus. In London, circus means circle, so don't go there expecting any animal acts, but do go there expecting a carnival-like atmosphere. Piccadilly Circus's big neon signs and swirling traffic seem to bring people out in droves, and some folks really dislike the chaos. Yet when you look around, most people seem to be having a great time. They're caught up in the vitality and spectacle of being in one of the best cities in the world, and there's nothing wrong with that.
