美國貓熊在中國有文化衝擊

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

Panda twins born and raised in Atlanta are struggling to adjust to their new surroundings in China, a Chinese newspaper says.

中國一家報紙報導,在(美國喬治亞州)亞特蘭大出生與養育的一對雙胞胎貓熊,正在使勁適應牠們在中國的新環境。

Mei Lun and Mei Huan, 3-year-old siblings, are having a hard time understanding commands from trainers and prefer American biscuits to their new food options, said People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the ruling Communist Party.

執政的中國共產黨黨報人民日報報導,3歲大的手足美輪與美奐在了解訓練員的指令上有困難,對美式麵餅的喜愛更勝於(在中國的)新食物選項。

The pandas left Zoo Atlanta for the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding on November 3, 2016.

這對貓熊在2016年11月3日離開亞特蘭大動物園,前往(中國)「成都大熊貓繁育研究基地」。

The pandas and trainers are also experiencing a bit of a language barrier, People’s Daily said. While Mei Lun and Mei Huan respond when their names are called, other commands given in Sichuanese fall on deaf ears.

人民日報說,這對貓熊與訓練員們還經歷到一些語言障礙。美輪與美奐在聽到自己的名字時會有反應,但對其他用四川話下達的指令置若罔聞。
