“Show and Tell”

Leath builín, leath cupán

  • “Is fearr leath builín na bheith gan arán”, a deir an seanfhocal. Moch ar maidin inniu agus mé cráite le tuirse
    agus slaghdán, stop mé ag an Starbucks sa stáisiún traenach. D’ordaigh mé “grande misto” (café au lait) agus
    d’fhan mé go foighneach.

    builín loadf
    moch early
    inniu
    cráite tormented, agonized, grieved
    tuirse tiredness, fatigue f4
    slaghdán cold m1
    fan wait, remain
    foighneach patiently

  • Cé nach raibh ach beirt romham, níor thosaigh an barista mo dheoch agamsa fiú a ullmhú tar éis cúpla nóiméad.
    Mar sin, nuair a chonaic mé an traein ag droideadh isteach sa stásiún, dúirt mé leí an leath-chupán caifé gan aon bainne ann
    a thabhairt dom agus amach liom.

    romham in front of me, before me roimh
    Cé nach raibh ach beirt romham/i> Although there were only two people in front of me
    tosaigh begin, start
    fiú even
    ulmaigh prepare, make ready
    Mar sin like that, therefore, (parenthetical) so, then
    droideadh approaching

  • Ní bhíonn aon deifir ar lucht an Starbucks sin, cé go bhfuil siad suite taobh istigh de stáisiún traenach.

    deifir hurry, hast
    lucht content, capacity, class (of people)
    lucht an Starbucks staff of Starbucks
    suite located

  • Ach caithfidh mé a admháil go bhfuil an leath-chupán caifé seo maith go leor.

    admháil admission
    caithfidh mé a admháil I had to admit
