Reading Practice

Have you noticed that men and women have very different opinions about clothing? Mr. Harper, for example, has probably been wearing the same clothes for several years and intends to wear them for several more. Вы заметили, что мужчины и женщины имеют очень разные мнения по поводу одежды? Г-н Харпер, например, вероятно, было в той же одежде в течение нескольких лет и намерен носить их в течение еще нескольких.

He’s very happy if his clothes last for a long time. He only need a couple of suits and a sports coat and slacks. Occasionally he buys a shirt, a pair of socks, some underwear, or a new tie. Mr. Harper is confident that he has enough clothing. Он очень рад, если его одежда продолжаться в течение длительного времени. Он только нужно пару костюмы и спортивную куртку и брюки. Иногда он покупает рубашку, пару носков, некоторые нижнее белье, или новый галстук. Г-н Харпер уверен, что он имеет достаточно одежды.

He thinks that his wife has plenty of clothes, too. She has several dresses, some skirts and blouses, and a few pairs of shoes. But when ever they plan to go out for the evening she says, “I don’t know what to do. I have nothing to wear.” “What about all the things in your closet?” Mr. Harper asks his wife. Он считает, что его жена имеет много одежды, тоже. У нее есть несколько платьев, некоторые юбки и блузки, и несколько пар обуви. Но когда все они планируют выйти в течение вечера она говорит: “Я не знаю, что делать. Мне нечего носить.” “А как же все вещи в вашем шкафу?” Г-н Харпер просит жену.

But he knows what the answer will be. One dress is out of style, another is too small or too short, and the third just doesn’t appeal to her anymore. Но он знает, что ответ будет. Одно платье из типа, еще слишком мал или слишком короткая, а третий просто не обращаюсь к ней больше.

Sometimes Mr. Harper can persuade his wife that something from her closet looks good on her. But once in a while she insists on going shopping for a new dress and new shoes. Иногда г-н Харпер может убедить жену, что что-то из шкафа выглядит хорошо на ней. Но время от времени она настаивает на движении по магазинам для нового платья и новые туфли.

Mr. Harper talks a lot, but he doesn’t really mind if his wife buys new clothes once in a while. Actually, he likes her to look attractive when they go to the theater or to a party. Г-н Харпер много говорит, но он на самом деле не против, если его жена покупает новую одежду раз в то время. На самом деле, он любит ее, чтобы выглядеть привлекательными, когда они идут в театр или на вечеринку.

5. Why does she frequently say that she has nothing to wear?

Conversation

Dialog 1

BILL: I don’t know what to wear today. Is it going to be cold or warm? BILL’S BROTHER: It looks like it’s going to rain today. You’d better take your raincoat. BILL: I can’t decide whether to wear my grey suit or the brown one. BILL’S BROTHER: Why don’t you wear the grey one? It’s not as heavy as the brown one. It may rain today, but it won’t be very cold. BILL: All right. What are you going to wear? BILL’S BROTHER: I think I’ll wear my new jacket and dark blue trousers. And if I can borrow your blue tie, I’ll wear that. I don’t have a blue tie. BILL: Of course you can have it All of my shirts are at the laundry, so I borrowed one of yours. I was sure you wouldn’t mind.

Dialog 2

ALICE: What kind of dress are you looking for? MARY: Since it’s getting warmer this time of year, I want something lightweight. What material do you think would be best? ALICE: Let’s see what there is. We can go to several stores. Personally, I like a cotton dress for spring. MARY: So do I. And I could wear it all summer, too. I want something I can use for a long time. ALICE: What color would you like? Yellow or green would be good colors for you. MARY: Oh! I want a white dress. ALICE: Are you sure? It’s not a very practical color. It gets dirty so fast. MARY: I know. But I’m getting married on Saturday, and white is the traditional color for a wedding dress.
