英语情景对话话题精粹：Language Barrier Between Chi
David：Do you know any foreign experts here in China? 你认识在中国工作的外国专家吗?
You：No, language is a real barrier between Chinese and foreign experts. Asmore and more people learn English, however, foreign experts can share theirknowledge more easily.不认识。语言是中国人和外国专家之间的一个障碍。但是随着越来越多的人学习英语，专家们就能很轻松地发挥他们的作用了。
David：I agree. The language barrier is a roadblock to potential cooperationbetween foreigners and Chinese. I feel that since many foreign experts came toChina to work, they may have not studied Chinese before. They only know Englishso they might be isolated from the real China.我同意，语言障碍妨碍了中外进一步合作。我觉得很多外国专家来中国工作以前，可能根本没有学过中文，他们只会讲英语，所以可能很难真正了解中国。
You：Right, it’s isolating. So, how can people break through this isolationand start getting through to each other? This is an urgent topic to put in frontof people. 对，这是一种孤立。那么人们如何才能打破这种孤立局面，开始和对方沟通呢?这是人们面临的一个紧迫问题。
You：Now English has gone global. It is not limited to people in England orthe United States. In more and more countries people are using English. So maybethis is how to do it.现在英语正在成为世界语言。它的使用者不再仅仅局限于英国人和美国人。越来越多国家的人开始使用英语。所以可能这就是解决之道。
David：There are two solutions: encourage foreigners to study Chinese andencourage Chinese to study English! 有两种方法：鼓励外国人学中文和鼓励中国人学英语。
