Hi Steve,My girlfriend and I have been with each other for 3 years. All our friends expect that we can finally make it to marriage. Last week, her project manager told her that the company was planning to send her overseas. Going to America to set up more client contacts there might be a great opportunity for her future career. The project will last 3 years, which will be quite a challenge to our relationship.
Dear Sam,So, your girlfriend is relocating to another courrty for a new job, and you are considering having a long-distance relationship, Forgive my bluntness, but don‘t even think about going through with a long-distance relationship unless you are both extremely devoted to one another, and willing to make sacrifices for the relationship. If this doesn‘t sound like you, then you should cut your losses now, and avoid a potentially heartwrenching situation in the future.
在英语中．最迷人的区域性方言之一就是美国南方诸州居民所讲的方言了。南方英语极具表现力，而且富于联想。难怪许多最为著名的美国语言大师，如马克·吐温和威廉·福克纳。都来自于南方。如果你有机会来聆听这一方言，你立刻就会产生一种印象．即在南方，会话不仅仅是一种传递信息的手段．它本身还是一种用以展现和享受的艺术。在本期的《The Far Side》中，一位真正的南方绅士，李·斯皮尔斯，就将迷人的南方话付诸笔端。
