2011公共英语考试辅导Paul and Wei step outside
   Paul: These buildings look so French.
   Wei: None of the other American cities we've visited looked quite like this.
   Paul: The history here is different. First it was a native city, then French, then Spanish, and finally American.
   Wei: How did it become American?
   Paul: The U.S. government bought it from Napoleon.
   Wei: The Louisiana Purchase! I've read about that.
   Paul: That's why there are so many French looking buildings with pretty balconies.
   Wei: Let's go inside and keep Trev company.

   保罗跟小薇走出来
   保罗:这些建筑的外观好有法国风。
   小薇:跟我们去过的其它美国城市看起来都不一样。
   保罗:这里的历史也不一样。这里原本是原住民城市,后来归法国,然后西班牙,最后才成为美国城市。
   小薇:它是如何变成美国的城市呢?
   保罗:美国政府是从拿破仑那里买来的。
   小薇:路易西安那购买案!我有读过。
   保罗:所以才有那么多有漂亮阳台的法式建筑。
   小薇:我们进去陪崔佛吧。

   重点解说:
   ★ native (a.) 原住民的,本国的,本土的
   ★ Louisiana Purchase 路易西安那购入地。美国在公元一八○三年向法国购买包括现今路易西安那州以及中西部等广大土地
   ★ keep someone company 和……作伴
