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）
（it is never too late to mend）
Once upon a time, there was a shepherd who kept several sheep.
One morning, the shepherd discovered that one of his sheep was missing.
It turned out that, during the night, a wolf had stolen his sheep through a hole in the sheep pen.
His neighbor suggested to him: "You should fix the pen and cover the hole right away."
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.
The next morning, he discovered that another sheep was missing.
Once again, the wolf stole the sheep through the hole in the fence.
The shepherd regretted not taking the neighbor's advice.
So he plugged the hole to secure the sheep pen.
From then on, no more sheep was stolen by the wolf.
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。”
