Today, we are doing a lesson on adjectives to describe people; 今天，我們的課程要教敘述人們的形容詞； maybe yourself, maybe people you know. And the way we are doing this today is by looking 或許是你自己，或許是你認識的人。這次我們的方法就是透過 at the horoscope. Okay? That kind of old thing of saying: "You were born in this month, so 占星術來學習。有一個古諺說:「你生在這個月份，你就會有屬於這個月份的特質」 you are like this." I don't really care if you agree or disagree with the horoscope. 我不在乎你相不相信占星學。 Irrelevant. Throw it out the window. We are here to learn some great English. Yeah? So, 偏題了。我們在這是要學英文的，對吧? we're going to go through them. 我們開始吧 And first we start with a positive trait. So, a "trait" is a characteristic, something 首先，我們從正面的特質開始。「trait」是一個特質，就是你表現出來的行為。 that you do. Okay? So positive traits of people who are Aries, and then negative traits. Okay? 所以這是牡羊座的正面特質，再來是負面特質。 So positive and then negative. Okay? Makes sense? Brilliant. If you are Aries, you were 正面的然後是負面的。了解? 非常好。如果你是牡羊座，你生來就會... born... So, just before we get started, today is also going to be useful for looking about 在我們開始之前，今天我們也會教 how we talk about dates as well. It's a little bit of revision on dates as well. 實用的日期的講法，也是一點日期的複習。 So, Aries people are... Were born... Past tense. Were born between the 21st of March 牡羊座的人生於...要用過去式喔，生於3月21日到4月20日。 and the 20th of April. So if that's you, positive trait: you are adventurous. You like doing 如果這是你，正面特質：你很喜歡冒險。你喜歡做事情 things. You like exploring and seeing new lands. Okay? You're quite courageous. But 你喜歡探索並發現新的事物。你很有膽量。 the negative trait is that you may be impulsive. Your friend says to you: "Hey, should we go 但負面特質就是你可能很衝動。你的朋友跟你說:「嘿，我們要穿越馬路嗎?」 and cross the road?" And you're like: "Yeah, yeah, I'll cross the road," and a bus comes 你會說:「好啊好啊，穿越馬路吧。」然後一輛公車開過來 and "ughl". Okay? So that's being impulsive. 啊！所以這就是衝動。 Taurus, that's me, the bull. Okay? Taurus...

I'm carrying on with my lesson, 我會繼續下去。但我或許有點固執。我繼續我的課程， and someone comes and says, you know: -"The building is on fire." -"No, no, no, no, no. 然後某人進來說，「房子失火了。」「不要，不要... I'm sorry. I am inflexible". "Flexible" means, you know, I am bendy. I cannot bend because 抱歉，我很固執。」「flexible」意思是，你知道，我是柔軟可彎曲的。我無法彎曲改變 I am doing my lesson; this is what I am doing. Okay? So if you do lots of yoga, you would 因為我正在上課，這就是我在做的事情。如果你常做瑜伽，你就是個 be a flexible person. I am inflexible. [Laughs] 靈活的人。我是固執的人。 Gemini. If you're Gemini, you were born between the 21st of May and 20th of June. Now, Gemini 雙子座。如果你是雙子座，你生於5月21日到6月20日之間。 people, they are eloquent and they speak very good English, so probably Gemini people, they're 雙子座的人很有口才，他們講一口好英文，所以這裡可能可能沒有雙子座的人， not here, because you know, they're already good. So they're eloquent speakers. Maybe 因為你知道，他們已經夠好了。他們是很有口才的講者 they're... Okay, so we can talk about eloquent speech, and we can talk about maybe eloquent 或許他們...好，我們講到有口才的說話方式，或許我們可以講到關於美麗的服裝 clothes. So you can say: "He was dressed very eloquently." Formal use of language. So they're 所以你可以說：「他穿得非常漂亮。」正式的用法。 eloquent, but they're superficial. Okay?

I'm cautious. Sometime... Maybe you've seen this word: "caution". 我不確定我有沒有那個時間。」我很謹慎。有時候...或許你看過這個詞「小心」 You might see it on a road sign. "Caution: ferrets crossing the road." I have to pay 你可能會在看到這個在路標上。「小心：雪貂穿越馬路。」 attention. These people are always paying attention. And on... So that... That's meant 我必須注意。這些人總是保持警覺。所以 to be a positive trait, they're cautious.

If I'm meticulous, 他們一絲不苟，「Meticulous」是個很棒又生動的英文形容詞。如果我一絲不苟， maybe I'm in the army and I'm very good at planning. So my board will look like too-too-too-too-too. 或許我會在軍隊裡，並且善於計畫。所以我的白板會看起來非常一絲不苟。 Meticulous. Every "t" is perfectly formed with a little cross.

I can't make a choice. Okay? Obviously, the answer's bicycle. Indecisive, 我不知道。」我無法做選擇。顯然的，答案是騎腳踏車。遲疑不決， can't make decision.

So I don't tell my boss: 但我可能不是很圓融。「tact」就是我知道該講什麼，我不會告訴我老闆:「 "I slept with your mom last night", because that would be no tact; that would be tactless. 昨天我跟妳媽睡了一晚。」因為那不得體，是不圓融的。 "Tact", if I'm tactful-okay?-I choose what words I say. 「圓融」，如果我很圓融，我會選擇我該講的詞。 Capricorn, December the 22nd to January the 19th.
