高中生诵读精华: 火用好了是朋友,粗心时是敌人

Fire

Fire can help people in many ways. But it can also be very harmful. Fire can heat water, warm your houses, give light, and cook food. But fire can burn things, too. It can burn trees, houses, animals, or people. Sometimes big fires can burn forests.

火在很多方面对人类有帮助,但是也可以非常有害。火可以把水加热,给你的房屋取暖,给你光亮,为你煮饭。但是火也会烧毁东西。它会烧掉树木,烧坏房屋,烧死动物和人。有时候大火会烧掉森林。

Nobody knows for sure how people began to use fire. But there are many interesting and old stories about the first time a man or woman started a fire. One story from Australia tells about a man, a very, very long time ago. He went up to the sun by a rope and brought fire down.

谁也不确定人类是怎样开始用火的。但是讲到人类第一次生火,会有很多有趣而古老的故事。澳大利亚有一个故事,讲的是一个男子在很久很久以前,攀着一根绳子爬到太阳上,把火取下来。

Today people know how to make a fire with matches. Children sometimes like to play with them. But matches can be very dangerous. One match can burn a piece of paper, and then it might burn a house. A small fire can become a big fire very fast.

现在人们知道怎样用火柴生火。孩子们有时候喜欢玩火柴。但是火柴是很危险的。一根火柴能够点着一张纸,进而可能烧毁一间房屋。一点小火可以很快变成大火。

Fires kill many people every year. So you must be careful with matches. You should also learn to put out fires. Fires need oxygen. Without oxygen they die. There is oxygen in the air. Cover a fire with water, sand, or in an emergency, with your coat or something else. This keeps the air away from a fire and kills it.

火每天都烧死许多人,所以你要小心使用火柴。你也应当学会灭火。火需要氧气,没有氧气火就会熄灭。空气中有氧气,用水、沙或在紧急时用上衣或别的东西盖在火上,就能防止空气接触火,把火熄灭。

Be careful with fire, and it will help you. Be careless with fire, and it will burn you.

用火小心,火就对你有帮助。用火粗心,火就会烧着你。
