Text A  A Beautiful Dress

One day Mrs. Jones went shopping. When her husband came home in the evening, she began to tell him about a beautiful cotton dress.
有一天,Mrs. Jones去购物。当他丈夫晚上回家时,她就开始跟他丈夫说看到的一条美丽的纯棉裙子。

“I saw it in a shop this morning,” she said, “and...” “And you want to buy it,” said her husband. “How much does it cost?”
“我今天早上在一家店里看到它的,”她说,“还有...”“还有你想要买它”她丈夫说,“多少钱?”

“Forty pounds.”
“40英镑。”

“Forty pounds for a cotton dress? That is too much!”
“四十英镑买一条纯棉的裙子,那太贵了!”

But every evening, when Mr. Jones came back from work, his wife continued to speak only about the dress, and at last, after a week, he said, “Oh, buy the dress! Here is the money!” She was very happy.
但是每天晚上,当Mr. Jones工作回来,他妻子就不断地只谈论那条裙子,最后,一个星期的持续以后,他说:“哦,买了那条裙子吧,给你钱!”她很高兴。

But the next evening, when Mr. Jones came home and asked, “Have you got the famous dress?” she said, “No.”
但是第二天晚上,Mrs. Jones一回来就问:“买了那条有名的裙子了吗?”她说:“没有。”

“Why not?” he said.
“为什么不买?”他问。

“Well, it was still in the window of the shop after a week, so I thought, nobody else wants this dress, so I don't want it either.”
“嗯,因为它仍然在那家店的镜柜里已经一星期了,所以我觉得,没有人想要那条裙子,所以我也不想要了。”

Read the following passage once. Underline the key words while reading and retell the story to your partner.

Mrs. Jones was still cleaning the house when her husband came back from work. She was wearing dirty, old clothes and no stockings, her hair was not tidy, she had dust on her face, and she looked dirty and tired. Her husband looked at her and said, “Is this what I come home to see after a hard day's work?”

Mrs. Jones's neighbour, “Mrs. Smith, was there?” When she heard Mr. Jones's words, she quickly said, “Goodbye!” And ran back to her house. Then she washed, brushed and combed her hair carefully, put on her best dress and her prettiest stockings, painted her face, and waited for her husband to come home.

When he arrived, he was hot and tired. He walked slowly into the house, saw his wife and stopped. Then he shouted angrily, "and where are you going this evening?"
