汤姆顶着一篮熟透的香蕉。

Tom carries a tray of ripe bananas.

Tom transporte un plateau de bananes mûres.


汤姆去集市上卖香蕉。

Tom goes to the market to sell bananas.

Tom va au marché pour vendre des bananes.


很多人去集市上买水果。

People at the market are buying fruit.

Les gens au marché achètent des fruits.


但是没有人去汤姆那儿,因为他们更喜欢去女人们那儿买。

But no one is buying Tom’s bananas. They prefer to buy fruit from women.

Mais personne n’achète les bananes de Tom. Ils préfèrent acheter leurs fruits des femmes.


人们说:“在我们这儿,只有女人会去卖水果”。他们问:“什么男人会去卖水果啊?”

“In our community, only women sell fruit,” people say. “What kind of a man is this?” people ask.

« Dans notre communauté, seulement les femmes vendent des fruits, » disent les gens. « Quelle sorte d’homme est celui-ci ? » demandent les gens.


但是汤姆没有放弃。他在集市上叫卖:“快来买我的香蕉!又大又甜的香蕉!”

But Tom does not give up. He calls, “Buy my bananas! Buy my sweet ripe bananas!”

Mais Tom ne démissionne pas. Il crie, « Achetez mes bananes ! Achetez mes bananes mûres et sucrées ! »


有一个妇女从篮子里抓了一把香蕉,仔细地查看。

One woman picks up a bunch of bananas from the tray. She looks at the bananas carefully.

Une femme choisit un régime de bananes du plateau. Elle inspecte les bananes soigneusement.


然后她买了那把香蕉。

The woman buys the bananas.

La femme achète les bananes.


越来越多的人到汤姆的摊位前。他们买了汤姆的香蕉,吃得津津有味。

More people come to the stall. They buy Tom’s bananas and eat them.

D’autres personnes viennent au stand. Elles achètent les bananes de Tom et les mangent.


不一会儿,汤姆的篮子就空了,他数了数自己卖香蕉赚到的钱。

Soon, the tray is empty. Tom counts the money he earned.

Bientôt, le plateau est vide. Tom compte l’argent qu’il a gagné.


汤姆用这些钱买了肥皂、糖和面包。他把这些东西放在他的篮子里。

Then Tom buys soap, sugar, and bread. He puts the things in his tray.

Ensuite, Tom achète du savon, du sucre et du pain. Il met les choses sur son plateau.


汤姆把篮子稳稳当当地顶在头上,回家了。

Tom balances the tray on his head and goes home.

Tom balance le plateau sur sa tête et rentre chez lui.
