与外国的童话故事和寓言故事不同,中华文化流传下来的更多的是成语故事,许多成语博大精深,充满了寓意和趣味性,读来朗朗上口,更显文化氛围。其实,英语中也有单词或短语可以表示汉语中的成语,那么今天就分享成语:亡羊补牢(it is never too late to mend)
亡羊补牢
(it is never too late to mend)
Once upon a time, there was a shepherd who kept several sheep.
从前有个人,养了几只羊。
One morning, the shepherd discovered that one of his sheep was missing.
 一天早上,他发现少了一只羊。
It turned out that, during the night, a wolf had stolen his sheep through a hole in the sheep pen.
原来羊圈破了个窟窿,夜间狼从窟窿里钻进来把羊叼走了。
His neighbor suggested to him: "You should fix the pen and cover the hole right away."
邻居劝告他说:“赶快把羊圈修一修,堵上那个窟窿吧。”
But the shepherd said: "The sheep is already lost, so I don't need to repair it."And so he rejected the neighbor's suggestion.
他说:“羊已经丢了,还修羊圈干什么呢?”他没接受邻居的劝告。
The next morning, he discovered that another sheep was missing. 
第二天早上,他去放羊,发现又少了一只羊。
Once again, the wolf stole the sheep through the hole in the fence.
原来狼又从窟窿里钻进来把羊叼走了。
The shepherd regretted not taking the neighbor's advice.
他很后悔没有接受邻居的劝告,
So he plugged the hole to secure the sheep pen.
他赶快堵上那个窟窿,把羊圈修得结结实实的。
From then on, no more sheep was stolen by the wolf.
从此,他的羊再没有被狼叼走了。
主人公没有听邻居的劝,及时补上那个洞,才造成了羊的两次丢失,幸好他最后补上了那个洞,才阻止了悲剧的再次发生。
现在我们常用“亡羊补牢”这个成语表达“出现了问题,只要及时补救,都还来得及”。我们可以说“It is never too late to mend.”也就是“补救永远不嫌太晚。”
所以小朋友们,做错事情时,要及时道歉和补救,及时解决问题才是最好的办法。
