    A:你這個寒假有去哪裡玩嗎?

    Did you go anywhere this winter vacation?

    B:有!我去了加拿大!而且在那還發生了一件印象深刻的事!

    Yes! I went to Canada! And something memorable/unforgettable happened there!

    A:哦?說來聽聽!

    Oh? Let's hear/Tell me about it!

    B:事情是這樣的,我的ㄧ個加拿大朋友邀請我到他家吃飯,我們約在晚上7點,

    因為不想讓他留下遲到的壞印象,所以我6:50就到了

    It's like this. One of my Canadian friends invited me to dinner at his house, at 7 o'clock. Because I didn't want to leave a bad impression of being late, I arrived at 6:50.

    A:這很好啊!

    Well that's great!

    B:我當初也這麼認為!但當我到達時,我的朋友卻顯得有些不自在

    That's what I thought at first! But when I got/arrived there, my friend seemed slightly uncomfortable.

    A:爲什麼呢?

    Why?

    B:他們習慣客人在約定時間後的10~15分鐘後出現,如果客人太早到,

    他們反而會不知所措!

    They're used to their guests arriving 10~15 minutes LATER than the time said. If the guest arrived too early, they won't know what to do!

    A:真是個奇怪的習慣

    What a(n) strange/odd/unusual/peculiar/weird habit/behaviour

    B:喔,不!其實在加拿大跟美國,這是個很普遍的習慣,應該說這是他們

    文化的一部份!

    Oh, no! Actually, in Canada and America, this is a very common habit, or I should say that it is part of their culture!

    A:原來是這樣啊!嗯…這讓我想起我第一次見到我的外國朋友時,他們在見面和

    離開時常會對我擁抱,甚至親吻臉頰,剛開始我很不習慣。

    漸漸我才了解這對他們來說是很平常的事。

    Oh, is that so! Hmm… This reminds me of the first time I met my foreign friends. They would often hug me, or even kiss my cheeks when we saw each other and when we left. I wasn't used to it at first, but then I realized/understood that this is very normal for them.

    B:嗯…我想這就是因為文化不同才會發生這些情況!

    Hmm… I think these sort of things happen/occur because of different cultures!

    A:是啊!所以我認為以後要去一個國家之前,得先了解那裡特殊的文化,

    才不會再發生這類的事!

    Yes! So I think that before going to a country, you have to understand their special culture first, to avoid something like this happening again!

    我不能說我的全對啦,不過樓上兩位都有些小地方有錯耶…
