  • Hello, I am Carl.

  • Hi, I am Rian.

  • Welcome toHot English Classroom”.

  • Hey, Carl.

  • What are you doing with your phone?

  • I want to buy a few chairs.

  • And I'm checking if the prices are lower online.

  • Have you ever considered going to the yard sale

  • at Cang Jin Yard (The Treasure Storehouse)?

  • Cang Jin Yard?

  • I'm looking for furniture, not treasure.

  • No, Cang Jin Yard doesn't sell treasures.

  • It's an environmental education park in the East District,

  • established by the Tainan City Government.

  • They collect old furniture from local residents and refurbish it.

  • On the second Saturday morning of every month,

  • the refurbished furniture will be on auction.

  • It's a lively event!

  • Auction? Sounds exciting!

  • Yes, it is.

  • And you can buy quality secondhand furniture

  • for a great price!

  • Sounds great!

  • I'm going to check out the next sale.

  • If you're going there,

  • you can take your recyclable materials with you.

  • Oh, can I exchange them for money?

  • No, you can't.

  • You get points from recycling them

  • and the points can be used to buy useful daily necessities.

  • That's a good place to practice environmental protection!

  • Indeed, if we all treasure resources in our daily lives more,

  • we can bring a lot of positive changes to the environment.

  • In addition to Cang Jin Yard,

  • where else could I get a good bargain?

  • There's no bargain,

  • but I can recommend the Japanese style dormitories

  • around Cang Jin Yard.

  • Japanese style dormitories?

  • Is there anything special about them?

  • The Japanese style dormitories in the East District

  • are newly refurbished.

  • What make the experience so special

  • is the combination of Japanese cultural exchange groups.

  • It creates a more authentic feeling.

  • Oh,

  • so you can actually experience Japanese culture

  • without going to Japan.

  • That's right.

  • You can try making tea or brewing coffee on your own.

  • Besides, there are traditional kimonos available for tourists.

  • Oh! But…..are there any kimonos for me?

  • Hmm, let's go there and check it out!

  • Let's review the key words today.

  • Let's review together!

  • Do you remember them all?

  • Yes, I do.

  • See you next time onHot English Classroom”!

  • What is the purpose of whisking? 刷茶的用意是…?

  • So that the powder can spread. 把茶粉刷開

  • Ok, so it spreads more evenly. 這樣比較容易散

  • Exactly. 對

  • And I would hand you the side that I think is most beautiful. 把我覺得最漂亮那一面給你

  • Here the past is intertwined with the present 在這裡過去跟現代的時空交錯

  • and just like at Cang Jin Yard where 就如同藏金閣那樣

  • used wood is given a new life and reborn. 回收木頭 創造出新的生命

  • Walking in the East District, 在東區漫步

  • I feel like a lot of effort is put into 好多歷史建築

  • restoring these old buildings and historical monuments. 都在精心規劃下 展現出新的面貌

  • Now only the appearance is changed, 不只是外觀上翻新

  • but you can really feel the amazing atmosphere 還能感受到特別的氛圍

  • that this place is given new potential and new values, 不斷地推陳出新

  • and that's one of the most attractive things about Tainan. 我想這就是臺南最迷人的地方了

  • So find time to come here, 有時間的話 不妨過來走走

  • you'll definitely enjoy it 你一定會喜歡

  • and cherish the good and joy in the little things. 並享受這些美好的小確幸
