Rob: That's a good question. I'm thinking, maybe back in Canada, but maybe not in the East Coast. It'd be possibly in B.C. or maybe in another country. Who knows? 好问题啊,我在想也许我会回到加拿大,但也有可能不在东海岸。有可能是在不列颠哥伦比亚省,也有可能是在另一个国家。谁知道呢。 语言点 square up 摆好架势 on some occasions 在一定情况下 B.C. 不列颠哥伦比亚省 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171207/517756.html
