英語の音声を聞く

英語リスニング - 本文

Todd:OK, hello!

Shawn:Hello!

Todd:What's your name please?

Shawn:My name is Shawn O'reily

Todd:Shawn O'Reily.

Shawn:Yes, sir!

Todd:OK, that's an Irish name?

Shawn:Yes, sir!

Todd:OK, and where are you from?

Shawn:Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Todd:OK, why don't you talk a little bit about Toronto?

Shawn:It's a very diverse, multi-cultural city. I feel it's a great place to raise your family. There's a lot of great family areas. I'd say some of the shopping malls are very good for pretty much anybody. And for the social types they have many bars in Toronto, unfortunately Toronto has a bit of a homeless problem, how-should-I-say, it's tiresome over the years, like every time you go downtown, you're bound to bump into a homeless person, like, wha-cha-call-it, for a city of 4 million compared to New York City that does not have a homeless problem it's pretty embarrassing. Um, how-should-I-say,at times it can be unsafe if you're around them because you're constantly being pestered by them, but, I'd say it's a good city, how-should-I-say, many different things to do, you're just not confined to one area of the city to have fun, you can go pretty much anywhere in the south end of the city and have fun.

Todd:OK, wow, sounds like a really good place.

Shawn:And of course, a lot of good-looking girls in Toronto. Many different kinds so it's definitely one of those places where you'll have, how-should-I-say, you'll have neck problems cause you'll constantly turning your head for all the good looking girls.
