小学儿童英文故事

  夜郎自大

  During the Han Dynasty, in the southwest there was a small country called Yelang, and although it was an independent nation, its territory was small, there weren’t many citizens, and its products were pitifully few. Because it was the largest kingdom in the near area, the Yelang king who’d never left his own country thought the country he ruled was the biggest on earth.

  One day, the king of Yelang was on a national border inspection tour with his troops, when he pointed in front of him [to neighboring country] and said, “Which country is bigger?” In order to serve their own interests and make the king happy, the troops said, “Of course Yelang is bigger!” They walked along, and the king once again lifted up his head, gazed at the big mountain in the distance and asked: “Is there a taller mountain than this anywhere on earth?” And his men answered: “No, there’s no mountain taller than this one on earth.” After a while, they reached the river side, and the king asked again: “I think this is the world’s longest river.” And all his men said in unison “The king speaks truly.” After this, the ignorant king believed even more firmly that Yelang was the world’s biggest country.

  Then one day, the Han Dynasty dispatched an envoy to Yelang, and en route they encountered the neighboring kingdom DianGuo, and the King of Dian asked the emissary: “If you compared the Han Dynasty and my Kingdom, which one would be bigger?” The emissary listened in astonishment, as he’d never have thought this small a country thought it could compare itself to the Han Dynasty. But he really never could have suspected that when he got to Yelang, the prideful and ignorant king who didn’t know that the kingdom he ruled was about the size of one Han county, would ask with an exaggerated opinion of his own worth, “Which is bigger: the Han Dynasty or my country?”

  汉朝的时候,在西南方有个名叫夜郎的小国家,它虽然是一个独立的国家,可是国土很小,百姓也少,物产更是少得可怜。但是由于邻近地区以夜郎这个国家最大,从没离开过国家的夜郎国国王就以为自己统治的国家是全天下最大的国家。

  有一天,夜郎国国王与部下巡视国境的时候,他指着前方问说:“这里哪个国家最大呀?”部下们为了迎合国王的心意,于是就说:“当然是夜郎国最大啰!”走着走着,国王又抬起头来、望着前方的高山问说:“天底下还有比这座山更高的山吗?”部下们回答说:“天底下没有比这座山更高的山了。”后来,他们来到河边,国王又问:“我认为这可是世界上最长的河川了。”部下们仍然异口同声回答说:“大王说得一点都没错。”从此以后,无知的国王就更相信夜郎是天底下最大的国家。

  有一次,汉朝派使者来到夜郎,途中先经过夜郎的邻国滇国,滇王问使者:“汉朝和我的国家比起来哪个大?”使者一听吓了一跳,他没想到这个小国家,竟然无知的自以为能与汉朝相比。却没想到后来使者到了夜郎国,骄傲又无知的国王因为不知道自己统治的国家只和汉朝的一个县差不多大,竟然不知天高地厚也问使者:“汉朝和我的国家哪个大?”

  专心致志

  Long ago there was a chess master named Qiu whose chess skills were superlative.

  Qiu had two students who studied chess with him, one student studied with concentrated focus and energy. The other, however, wasn’t like that, he thought studying chess was very easy, and there was no need to take it seriously. When the teacher was explaining, although the [the student] sat there, his eyes seemed to be on the chess pieces, he was actually thinking: “If I go to the countryside right now and shoot a goose, I’ll have a lovely dinner.” Because he was always indulging in flights of fancy and absent-mindedness, nothing the teacher said ever sunk in.

  As a result, although the two students studied were taught at the same time by the same master, one improved quickly and became a superior chess player, while the other never learned much at all.

  从前有一个下棋能手名叫秋,他的棋艺非常高超。

  秋有两个学生,一起跟他学习下棋,其中一个学生非常专心集中精力跟老师学习。另一个却不这样,他认为学下棋很容易,用不着认真。老师讲解的时候,他虽然坐在那里,眼睛也好像在看着棋子可心里却想着:“要是现在到野外射下一只鸿雁,美餐一顿该多好。 ”因为他总是胡思乱想心不在焉,老师的讲解一点也没听进去。

  结果,虽然两个学生同是一个名师传授,但是,一个进步很快,成了棋艺高强的名手,另一个却没学到一点本事。
