基礎英語３ Review 29 Do you know where that robot came from?
Listen to this week’s stories and fill in the blanks.
Lesson 113 Do you know where that robot came from?
Minus: We are at your service, my lord.
Negative Forces: Do you know where that robot came from?
Non: That robot causes so much trouble. He is not a decent citizen like us, my lord.
Minus: Quite, Non. My lord, we’re not sure yet where that robot came from.
Negative Forces: How useless! I’ve already figured out who invented him!
Non: Whoever that is, he must be a genius!
Negative Forces: His name is Fukushima Ken. He is an expert in robotics. Also, he has a family. It should be easy to crush the robot, but we must use our negative forces more effectively.
Minus: Yes, my lord. Tell us exactly what you want us to do.
Lesson 114 I hope RoboCorpus will be back by then
Asuka: Yukichi, it’s nice to know that you went to look for RoboCorpus with your family.
Yukichi: Yeah, I am so worried about him. I’ll find him next time.
Asuka: By the way, Christmas is coming soon. Let’s have a Christmas party together!
Yukichi: Really? Sounds great!
Asuka: I hope RoboCorpus will be back by then.
Ken: Hi, Yukichi. Hi, Asuka. I’ll go and visit Dr. Ikebukuro’s office. I’ll be back around eight o’clock.
Yukichi: OK, I’ll tell Mom. Take care, Dad!
Asuka: Yukichi, who’s Dr. Ikebukuro?
Yukichi: He’s a famous professor of robotics. Dad studied how to make robots in his laboratory.
Asuka: Wow, he must be very smart!
Lesson 115 We found our target
Dr. Ikebukuro: Hi, Ken. I’m glad you came.
Ken: Good to see you again, Dr. Ikebukuro. You look energetic, as usual!
Dr. Ikebukuro: Time is flying. I’m getting old…. I want to show you something.
Ken: A new robot?
Dr. Ikebukuro: This is prototype. It looks small, but it has extremely powerful AI learning abilities.
Ken: Like the one I mode for my robot, RoboCorpus.
Dr. Ikebukuro: Even more powerful, once it is complete. How is your robot doing, by the way?
Ken: Oh, didn’t I tell you? He ran away from home, and we haven’t been able to find him yet.
Dr. Ikebukuro: He must be getting smarter and smarter every day. Maybe he will never come back.
Ken: I hope that’s not the case.
Minus: I see…. We found our target.
Lesson 116 Do you miss your family?
Lex: It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?
RoboCorpus: It’s sunny, but very cold.
Jukichi: I need a home for the winter.
Lex: Humans usually celebrate Christmas or prepare for the new year in December.
RoboCorpus: I wonder if Yukichi is also having a Christmas party….
Jukichi: Do you miss your family?
RoboCorpus: My family…. I am not sure if they think of me as a member of the family….
Sylphie: Hi, guys! I sense a great evil…. I think it’s the Lord of Negative Forces.
Lex: Is he going to attack us?
Sylphie: No, he is looking for something else. I don’t know what it is…. But I have a bad feeling about this.
