[万花筒] 【整理】2008-12-05&12-06 圣诞老人世界锦标赛

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

1. be able to belt out a few carols

belt out 指的是唱出,或用乐器演奏出

2.be able to scale a chimney in no time flat

scale=climb, flat在这里是一个副词,用于表达精准地

3. be able to coax some donkeys through the snow

coax 和some 连读了,所以比较难听出来

4. some kind of ball toss event

event!!!不是of that

5. "we've trained very hard"

不是"we've been trying very hard"虽然意思都对

6. bragging rights 不是flagging rights

flagging right....doesn't make any sense. bragging rights或叫boasting rights.这个是字典查出来的~~~

As the sound goes, he knows when were sleeping and when were awake and when were bad or good. But who knows he could also do this for goodness sake. Welcome to the mountains of Switzerland where more than a hundred men and women competed in a Santa Claus World Championship. To win you don’t just have to look the part, but be able to belt out of your carols. (Wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.) Be able to skill a chimney in no time flash and be able to cope with some donkeys through the snow. You may be asking yourselves why donkeys. It seems they just couldn’t round up a reindeer for the event.

 

There was also a sprint involving presents, but then there was this, some kind of ball toss of that. And then to make it even more surreal, contestants got into this contraption from what we can gather the Santas crab (不会去这个黄底)themselves to Bungee Cords and jumped up and down on trampolines. All will try to catch ornaments being throw at them. At least there was drinking involve.

 

We will let the winner explain what it took to claim the title. “We’ve  trained very hard the whole year, especially mentally because we celebrate saint nicolas day our club since over a hundred and forty years and so we do best prepare for that job as we prove today.”

For that they get 4000 dollars and of course bragging rights

Be able to scale a chimney in no time flat and be able to cope with some donkeys through the snow. You may be asking yourselves why donkeys. It seems they just couldn’t round up enough reindeer for the event.

 

 

There was also a sprint involving presents, but then there was this, some kind of ball toss event. And then to make it even more surreal, contestants got into this contraption from what we can gather the Santas strapped themselves to Bungee Cords and jumped up and down on trampolines, all while try to catch ornaments being thrown at them. At least there was drinking involved.
