When I was a child, I once went camping with my family in the summer. We decided to make a barbecue in the valley. So we collected some tree sticks to make a fire. My father asked me if I could try to make a fire. I was glad to take the job. Then I tried to set fire to the wood with a match, but produced only smoke. Then my father said, 'That's not the right way. I'll show you how to do it. First use the small pieces of wood because they catch fire easily. Then put the larger ones on top of them.' My father helped me make a big fire.
当我还是小孩子的时候，一年夏天我们全家去野营。我们决定在山谷中烧烤，所以我们捡来了一些树枝生火。 父亲问我愿不愿意尝试着生火，我很高兴地承担了这项任务。我试着用火柴把木头点燃，但结果都是烟。 父亲说：“这样做不对。我来教你如何生火。先用小片的木头，因为它们容易点燃，然后把大些的放在它们上面。”父亲帮我点起了旺旺的火。
