IV. Language Learning
Translation
1.National Geographic has an explanation for the animals’ popularity: Dinosaurs are where science and imagination meet, which is what makes them so appealing to kids and adults alike.
     国家地理解释了恐龙受欢迎背后的原因:恐龙是科学和想象的结合,这可能也是恐龙对于成人和孩子们同样有吸引力的原因。


2. It’s this sense of mystery that makes dinosaurs more interesting than other fierce animals like lions and tigers – animals that can easily be seen in today’s zoos.
    It’s…that…强调句型
   比起现今动物园中可以轻易看到的诸如狮子老虎之类的凶猛动物来说,正是这种神秘感增加了恐龙的魅力。

3. Dinosaurs can be Hollywood monsters, objects of scientific fascination and everything in between, but at the root of it, our fascination with them stems from wanting to know more about the prehistory we share.
    恐龙可以是好莱坞的怪物角色,充满魅力的科研对象,或者介于这之间的一切事物,但从根本上说,我们对于恐龙的着迷源于想要了解更多关于我们所共有的史前时期的生活。

V. Discussion
   Apart from the reasons mentioned in this article, can you think of some other reasons why people like dinosaurs so much?
