Steven, a student from Costa Rica, talks with Rachel about how he tries to help the environment.
Rachel: You were talking about Earth Hour and that’s switching the lights off is one way to save electricity and protect the environment. what other things do you do in your life to save for example water?
Steven: Well, as for me, I recycle all my waste. I also, as for water, before brushing teeth, I have a cup. I just fill the cup and then use it. I don’t know if you do it. Do you do it?
Rachel: Actually, I have to confess, I don’t save water very efficiently. I usually leave the tap running when I’m brushing my teeth, so I will try. Do you have any other tips for saving water?
❤️I have to confess là cụm từ khi bạn muốn nói điều gì đó mà bạn đã làm nhưng không tốt. Ví dụ: Tôi phải thú nhận; Tôi ăn nhiều đồ ăn vặt và tôi không bao giờ tập thể dục. I have to confess. I eat a lot of junk food, I never exercise I have to confess, I don't save water very efficiently. Tôi phải thừa nhận rằng, Tôi không tiết kiệm nước lắm ❤️ Leave running. I usually leave the tap running Khi chúng ta bật cái gì đó lên mà quên tắt, để nó tiếp tục hoạt động thì bạn cụm từ này " leave it running" Vd: I leave my laptop running 24 hours a day = Tôi để máy laptop mình chạy suốt 24 tiếng đồng hồ He left his bycicle on park while he came to see me at the coffee. When he returned, his bycicle was gone Anh ta bỏ chiếc xe đạp trên công viên trong lúc đi gặp tôi ở quán cà phê. Lúc quay về, thì chiếc xe mất rồi
Steven: Well, start off buying a cup before you brush your teeth, and of course, try to close the tap. When you’re trying to like throw trash or something, try to separate your trash, and of course, turn off any electricity that you are not using. Unplug them because even if you don’t use it, and you have a plug, it will use electricity
Rachel: Thank you. So do you always unplug your laptop computer when you go to sleep or do you sometimes leave it running?
Steven: I actually plug my laptop. I will charge it fully and then I will unplug it and use it all the battery, so I guess I do, and especially I don’t use my laptop. For my laptop I just use it for class, so pretty much yes.
Rachel: Well, my computers are very old, and I’m always scared if I turn it off that it won’t start up again, so I leave mine on all the time. I think I’m the worst environmentalist. But I do recycle a lot of our trash and I also have never owned a car, so I take public transport everywhere. Do you have a car?
Steven: I do have a car. However, I try not to use it, because If I use it I will just take the whole family: My parents and my sisters. And as for shopping, I will just take public transportation because it’s right almost really near to my house
Rachel: In Costa Rica, do you actually need a car to travel between places or is public transport very good?
Steven: Compare Costa Ria with other countries, for example, the United States or Japan, Costa Rica does not have the railroads. It doesn’t have the subways. But we do have a good bus, transportation, and it’s pretty much really cheap
Rachel: So Steven you’ve inspired me to be more environmentally friendly, so I think I’m gonna go and buy a cup so I can brush my teeth and save water
❤️You've inspired me. You have inspired me to be more environmentally friendly Khi chúng ta truyền cảm hứng cho ai đó, chúng ta khiến họ vui vẻ và họ muốn làm điều đó tốt hơn, thì ta dùng cụm từ này. Ví dụ: ❤️Dịch vụ tư vấn công nghệ môi trường Etech truyền cảm hứng cho tôi thân thiện với môi trường hơn Etech environmental technology consulting service has inspired me to be more environmentally friendly
Steven: Great idea. Thank you, Rachel.
