电梯

(diàntī)

A: When I got home yesterday night, I discovered that our elevator was broken. The maintenance people were working on it all night and it was still broken this morning.

昨晚回到家我发现我家的电梯坏了,维修人员忙了一晚上,今天一早还是不能用。

(zuówǎn huídào jiā wǒ fāxiàn wǒjiā de diàntī huài le, wéixiū rényuán mánɡ le yīwǎnshànɡ, jīntiān yīzǎo háishì bùnénɡ yònɡ.)

B: That's unlucky. So how did you go upstairs?

太倒霉了吧,那你怎么上楼啊?

(tài dǎoméi le ba, nà nǐ zěnme shànɡlóu ā?)

A: Luckily, I live on the sixth floor. It wasn't too tiring to take the stairs.

幸亏我住在六楼,走楼梯也不会很累。

(xìnɡkuī wǒ zhùzài liùlóu, zǒu lóutī yě bùhuì hěnlèi.)

B: I can't imagine what it was like for those living higher. If the elevator isn't fixed, they are going to have to keep taking the stairs.

难以想象那些住在高楼层的住户们,电梯修不好的话他们可能要一直走楼梯了。

(nányǐxiǎnɡxiànɡ nàxiē zhùzài ɡāolóucénɡ de zhùhù men, diàntī xiūbùhǎo de huà tāmén kěnénɡ yào yīzhí zǒu lóutī le.)
