Today I’m joined by Kate. Hi Kate.
你好，我是Dan Walker Smith，這是係由BBC制作既6分鐘英語。
Kate: Hi Dan.
Dan: Now Kate, today we're talking about credit cards. So could you please tell me
what those are?
Kate: Sure. Well, credit cards are the plastic cards we use instead of money. You
can use credit cards to pay for items in shops or to take out cash; that is money
in its physical form, such as coins or notes.
當然可以。其實信用卡是我們使用的sok gua 卡 用黎代替金錢。
Dan: So this week's question for you Kate is: In what year was the first ever credit
card introduced? Was it:
A 1951年 , b 1855年, 定係 c 1962年?
Kate: That's an interesting question. I had no idea they even went back as far as
1962. I thought they were much more recent than that. So in that case I'm
going to go for c, 1962.
Dan: OK, we'll see if you're right at the end of the programme.
Kate: Now one of the obvious advantages of using a credit card is that it's often more
convenient than carrying cash. If something's convenient it means it's easier
generally or more suitable.’
Dan: As you're not using actual money, some people say that credit cards can
encourage you to spend more than you can really afford, and you could fall
into debt. Could you explain what that means Kate?
