英语对话1:

星期五晚上,jason和wanda准备下班,跟同事larry说再见。

jason: goodnight, larry! i'm heading home. it's been a long day.

larry: goodnight, jason. have a good evening.

wanda: you're not going home, larry?

l: na...thought i'd try and finish up this project i've been working on.

j: but it's already 9:30! how many more hours do you plan to work?

l: oh, i'd say this project will be done in six hours or so.

w: so you're going to work through the night? larry...have you ever heard of "karoshi?"

jason准备下班回家,i'm heading home. larry却说要把手头项目做完,finish up the project. 当时已经九点半了,larry估计还要六个小时才能完事,所以一定要熬夜,work through the night. wanda问larry听没听说过karoshi.

l: karaoke?

w: no...karoshi, the japanese word for death by overwork! you've been putting in overtime every night this week!

j: you know, wanda has a point. we all need some down time. if you put in too many hours, it can hurt your body and it can affect your work.

l: so people in japan actually die from working too hard?

w: yep. it's becoming a big problem. more than 100 people die from overwork in japan every year.

原来,karoshi是个日本词,意思是工作过度而死,俗称过劳死,wanda说,日本每年有一百多人过劳死,劝 larry不要太玩命,put in too many hours, 工作太长时间。jason也说,we all need some down time. 所有人都要劳逸结合,down time就是放松的时间。
