艾萨克一家准备去旅行。他对整个旅程满怀兴奋,有一件事却除外。他此前从未坐过飞机,他害怕乘坐的飞机出故障。

Isaac got onto the plane. He walked down the aisle until he found his seat. He sat down and connected the ends of his seat belt. After being idle for a few minutes, the pilot announced that they were ready to leave.

艾萨克上了飞机,在过道上寻找着自己的座位。他坐下来并紧紧系上了安全带。过了几分钟之后,飞行员广播说飞机即将起飞。

He looked out the window at the vivid colors of the sky. He began to feel scared. The girl sitting next to him said, "Hi, I'm Rachel! You look nervous, but you don't need to be. Flying is fun!"

艾萨克看着窗外天空鲜艳的颜色,开始感到害怕。坐他隔壁的女孩对他说:“你好,我叫瑞秋!你看起来很紧张,但其实不用紧张。坐飞机是很好玩的!”

I'm still a bit nervous, Issac said, "and I'm getting hungry. "

“我还是有点紧张,”艾萨克说,“而且我有点饿了。”

The food service will begin soon. Just lower the tray on the seat in front of you, and flip this switch. Then they'll bring your dinner! Last time, they served chicken, peas, and a box of raisins, Rachel explained.

“很快就会有用餐服务了。把你面前的桌板放下并按下按钮,他们就会给你带来晚餐!上一次的菜有鸡肉,豌豆和一盒葡萄干。”瑞秋解释说。

Then the pilot notified the passengers of bad conditions in the atmosphere. "We're tracking the weather: lightning, clouds, etc. The ride might get a bit rough," he stated.

随后飞行员通知了乘客空气中的恶劣情况。“我们在追踪天气:闪电、云层等。这段旅程可能会有点艰难,”他说。

Suddenly, the plane started to shake. Isaac was badly afflicted by his fear. His stomach hurt, and he thought he might vomit. He couldn't believe that he was in such an unfortunate place. Finally, the shaking stopped. Isaac was still scared, but he tried to retain a good attitude.

突然,飞机开始颠簸。艾萨克非常害怕,他的肚子很难受,感觉想吐。他简直无法相信自己这么不走运。终于,飞机不再颠簸。艾萨克还是害怕,但他努力不表现出来。

After a while, he didn't even notice the bad weather. The bad situation didn't feel so bad after someone helped him.
