空巢青年

(kōnɡcháo qīnɡnián)

A: Lili used her entire salary from this month to refurbish the apartment she is renting.

丽丽把这个月的工资全用在改造她租的房子上了。

(lìlì bǎ zhèɡè yuè de ɡōnɡzī quán yònɡzài ɡǎizào tā zūde fánɡzǐ shànɡ le.)

B: That makes sense. She is a typical empty-nest youth.

可以理解。她是典型的空巢青年。

(kěyǐ lǐjiě. tāshì diǎnxínɡ de kōnɡcháo qīnɡnián.)

A: An empty-nest youth will use their own money to refurbish someone else’s home? I don’t get it.

空巢青年会花钱改造别人的房子?不明白。

(kōnɡcháo qīnɡnián huì huāqián ɡǎizào biérén de fánɡzǐ? bù mínɡbái.)

B: People who live on their own value their quality of life. They’d rather spend a bit of money than just get by with nothing.

这些独居的人都很重视生活的质量, 宁愿破费些也不愿意将就度日。

(zhèxiē dújū de rén dōuhěn zhònɡshì shēnɡhuó de zhìliànɡ, nìnɡyuàn pòfèi xiē yě bù yuànyì jiānɡjiù dùrì.)
