PART 2-事物类-有趣的谈话

Describe an interesting conversation you had with someone

You should say:

When and where it happened

Who you had it with

What you talked about

And explain why you think it was interesting

I have some rather obscure interests, so what constitutes an interesting conversation’ for me is likely to be a bit strange or even downright bizarre from the perspective of other people.

  • obscure interests 不大的兴趣
  • constitutes 被算作
  • downright bizarre 彻头彻尾的怪异
  • from the perspective 从…角度

But there are a few individuals out there whom I’ve run across who share some of my passions. When we have a discussion together, it can become quite an intoxicating experience. We seem to strike sparks off one another and our words come together into an illuminating bonfire that helps to brighten our minds and share the warmth of radiating truth.

  • share some of my passions 和我一样有激情
  • intoxicating experience 令人陶醉的经历
  • strike sparks off 擦出火花
  • illuminating bonfire 明亮的篝火
  • brighten our minds 明智
  • radiating truth流露真实

A few weeks ago, I had just such an interaction with a friend of mine in Europe – the miracles of modern technology enabling us to converse from almost directly opposite sides of the globe. He is in England and I’m in Melbourne.

  • interaction 交流
  • miracles of modern technology 现代科技奇迹
  • enabling 使能够
  • converse 交流

We were discussing some historical linguistics and mythology for several related cultures that flourished many centuries or even millennia ago. These are quite obscure areas, and outside of academia. In other words, many people would find it incredibly difficult to follow what we were on about.

  • historical linguistics and mythology 历史语言学和神话学
  • flourished 茁壮成长
  • millennia 千年
  • obscure 鲜为人知的
  • academia 学术界
  • what we were on about 我们所讨论的内容

But I find these sorts of engagements incredibly interesting because we can add to our knowledge, and get a good critical perspective upon the ideas that we are developing.

  • incredibly interesting 非常有趣
  • critical perspective 批判视角
