I like the summer, but it is so hot! Sometimes
after just a short walk… I'm dripping with sweat! 台灣的夏天非常熱，走路幾分鐘就滿頭大汗！
Most of us use air conditioners at home in the
summer. But what about when you go out for a walk? You could carry a small
fan, or a bottle of water… but… I want an "air con", or air conditioner, I
can wear! 在家有冷氣可以吹，在外面怎麼辦呢？
Does that sound silly? Well, guess what? A company
has just made the world's first air conditioner you can
It looks a little like a dog collar. You wear it
around your neck, and it blows cold air up to your head! 它長得像狗項圈，戴在脖子上，它會朝著你的頭吹冷風。
So when you are walking in the hot sun you can
keep nice and cool… Ahhh!
It is much smaller and lighter than the
air-conditioner in your home… phew! That would be too heavy to carry on your
This air-con has a very strong, very tiny fan… but
it's not just a fan. It really blows out cold air… it's a real air
conditioner! And, it's a smart air conditioner too! 它不只是電風扇，它真的會吹出冷風！
The wearable air con has a small computer inside
it. This computer knows how hot it is… so, it will blow out cold air on hot
days… not-so-cold air on not-so-hot days… and super cold air on super hot
What do you think? Is a wearable air-con a good
idea? Would you want to wear one?
I think I like this idea! I want to wear it and go
to the beach! ________________________________
1) air 空氣 Can you feel the cold air?
你能感覺到冷空氣嗎？ Yes, I can! 有感覺到。 Did you turn on the air conditioner?
你開了冷氣機嗎？ Yeah, I'm testing it. 對，我在測試。
2) neck 脖子 What's that around your neck?
你圍在脖子上的東西是啥？ It's a fan. 是一台電扇。 A fan for your neck? 給脖子吹電扇？ Yeah, it's very hot. 對啊，天氣非常熱。
3) wear 穿戴 I would never wear a machine.
我絕不會穿戴機器。 But you are wearing a watch.
但是你戴著手錶。 That's totally different. 那完全不一樣。
4) blow 吹氣 The wind is blowing hard! 風好大! Yeah, I think it
will rain soon. 就快下雨了。 I'm so glad I'm home now.
