在國外迷路 Getting Lost in a Foreign Country
湯姆和艾波在西班牙旅行期間在一個公車站下車。
>> 皇家私藏藝術所羅浮宮, 搖身一變成為公眾博物館 The Louvre: More than a Museum

觀光英語

Tom and April are getting off at a bus stop during their trip in Spain.

A: Taking a bus ride is such a good way to explore the city! So which way is the museum?

T: Uhh... Let me check. Wait, this is not happening.

A: What’s wrong? Are we lost?

T: I’ve used up all the mobile data on my phone, so I have no access to the internet now. Can we use your phone to check?

A: But my phone is already dead. What should we do now?
T: Let’s not
freak out! We can ask someone for directions.
A: Good idea! But how do we ask them? We don’t speak their language.
T: I know! I can just type the name of the museum on my phone and show them.

A: That’s brilliant!
(Tom types on his phone and
goes up to a woman who is walking by.)

T: Excuse me, ma’am. Do you know where this museum is?
(The woman takes a look at Tom’s phone and points the way to the museum.)

T: I think she means we can just go along this street. Let’s go.

A: Great. It’s good that you overcame the language barrier.

T: Exactly. Hey, I can see the museum over there.
