成语故事| Eating Dates

  成语故事

  Long ago,there was a young man who bought many fruits,like pears and dates.He sat at the roadside to eat them.

  从前,有个人买了一堆水果,有梨儿,也有枣儿,坐在路边上吃。

  An old man saw him and said:“Eating too many pears is good for teeth,but bad for your body.”

  有个老头儿看见了,对他说:“小伙子,梨儿可不能多吃呀。它虽然对牙齿有好处,可是吃多了对身体不好。”

  The young man asked:“How about dates?”The old man answered:“The dates are good for body but bad for teeth.”

  青年人就问:“枣儿吃多了呢?”老头儿说:“枣儿对身体是好的,可吃多了对牙齿不好,也不能多吃。”

  The young man thought for a while and said:“I’ve got a good idea!

  青年人看了看梨儿,又看了看枣儿,想了一会儿,说:“哈哈,我想出了个好办法!

  I can eat pears with teeth and don’t swallow them.And I can swallow dates without chewing.”

  我吃梨儿就只用牙齿嚼,不吞到肚子里去。吃枣儿,我就把它整个儿吞下去,不用牙齿嚼。”

  Then he put a date into his mouth and swallowed it immediately.Unluckily,he was choked by the date.

  说完话,他就拿起一个枣儿放在嘴里,直接吞了下去。没想到,他一下子就被枣儿噎住了。

  重点难点单词

  date:枣

  swallow:吞,咽

  chew:咀嚼,嚼

  immediately:直接地

  choke on sth.:被……噎住
