行李有超重嗎 英語不必太難 從生活出發就好  

Stella and her family are leaving for Hawaii this morning and as usual they arrive at the airport on time. It's always their mother's job to check in for the whole family while their father buys the trip insurance for them at the insurance company's counter. Normally Stella and her brother would stay with their mother, but today she wants to stroll around the airport. She is kind of disappointed though because besides some shops she can't find anything interesting. Her brother is quite excited thouth and he's been looking forward to visiting Hawaii after he has heard so much from his best friend who visited there last summer vacation.

史黛拉和她的家人今天早上即將前往夏威夷,和往常一樣。她們準時抵達機場。當爸霸在保險公司櫃檯幫她們買旅遊保險時,替全家人驗票總是媽媽的工作。正常來說,史黛拉和她第地會和她們的媽媽在一起,但是今天,她想在機場逛逛。但他有點失望,因為除了一些店之外,她沒有找到任何有趣的東西。她弟弟則相當興奮,自從他去年暑假曾經去過夏威夷的最好朋友那裡聽到很多事之後,他就一直很期待造訪夏威夷。
