Kitten Heels 中跟女鞋
The script of this programme 本节目台词
Tracy: Hello, welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Tracy.
Tracy: Li, your shoes are gorgeous. Are they new?
Li: Yes. I had to buy them. 这双鞋挺贵的，不过可以搭配很多不同种类的衣服。
Tracy: I can see why you bought them. Those kitten heels are perfect for work and partying.
Li: Why do people call them kitten heels?
Tracy: Honestly, I don’t know. They just do. Perhaps it’s because they are as cute as a kitten.
Li: 和小猫一样可爱。那么女鞋中的 kitten heel 和 stiletto heel 比起来都有哪些区别呢?
Tracy: That’s a good question. They are both types of high-heeled shoe. A stiletto is a tall, slim-heeled shoe.
Li: A stiletto 是鞋跟又高又细的高跟鞋。
Tracy: They are usually considered to be quite sexy.
Li: Ok, and a kitten heel?
Tracy: A kitten heel is a shoe with slightly shorter heel. The heels are usually no more than a couple of inches tall.
Tracy: Nowadays, women wear all different types of shoes. They might wear kitten heels or stilettos or another type of shoe to work.
Li: What do you prefer to wear: kitten heels or stilettos?
Tracy: That’s a tough one. I’m quite short so I often wear stilettos, although I think kitten heels are more comfortable.
I normally wear stilettos to work. I think they look smarter with a suit than kitten heels.
I don’t own a single pair of kitten heels. I’m definitely a stiletto fan.
I have a couple of pairs of kitten heels which I wear to work but my favourite shoes are my stilettos.
Li: That’s quite interesting. 比起 kitten heels，她们好像更喜欢穿 stilettos？这又是为什么呢？
Tracy: I don’t know, but there is a trend just now for very tall high heels.
Tracy: Talking of very fashionable people Li, we should finish today’s programme.
Tracy: Join us next time at www.bbcchina.com.cn. Bye.
