Reading Practice

The Jensens are a typical American farm family. Mr. and Mrs. Jensen came from Norway many years ago and settled on a dairy farm in Minnesota. Their four children grew up there. ジェンセンは、典型的なアメリカの農場の家族です。夫妻ジェンセンは、何年も前に、ノルウェーから来て、ミネソタ州の酪農農場で和解した。彼ら四人の子供が育った。

The two boys, Olaf and Carl, helped their father take care of the farm. They plowed and planted the fields, harvested the crops and milked the cows. The daughters, Inga and Sigrid, helped their mother with the housework. There was always a lot to do and the whole family worked very hard. 二人の少年、オラフとカールは、彼らの父親は農場の世話をしました。彼らは、耕さや作物を収穫し、牛を搾乳、フィールドを植えた。娘、インガとシグリッドは、家事と母親を助けた。そこにやるべきことがたくさんは常にあったし、家族全員が非常に懸命に働いた。

Today Mr. and Mrs. Jensen are old and cannot work as hard as they did when they were younger. Their son Olaf runs the farm now and his wife and children help him. The work is not as hard now as it used to be. Olaf has bought several machines which do many of the things formerly done by hand. 今日夫妻ジェンセンは古く、などのハード、彼らが若かったとき、彼らがしたように動作することはできません。彼らの息子オラフは現在、ファームを実行し、彼の妻と子供たちは彼を助ける。それがために使用される仕事は、今のように難しいことではありません。オラフは、以前は手で物事の多くを行う複数のマシンを買ってきた。

The other three children have moved away. Sigrid married a farmer and lives nearby. Carl is living in Minneapolis where he has a good job as manager of a factory which makes dairy products. 他の三人の子供は車で移動している。シグリッドは農家と結婚し、近くに住んでいます。彼は乳製品を作る工場のマネージャーとして良い仕事を持ってどこにカールはミネアポリスに住んでいる。

Some of the milk used by the factory comes from Olaf Jensen’s farm. Olaf Jensen Inga went to the State University and is now teaching in a high school in St. Paul. 工場で使用される牛乳の一部はオラフジェンセンの農場から来ている。オラフジェンセンインガは州立大学に行って、今ではセントポールの高校で教えています。

The story of the Jensens is not unusual. Although life on the farm has changed a great deal, farming is still a necessary and very important occupation. However, city life attracts young people like Carl and Inga Jensen. Every year many of them leave the farms and take jobs in the many factories which are located in or near large cities. ジェンセンの話は珍しいことではありません。農場での生活は、多くのことを変更されましたが、農業は依然として必要な、非常に重要な職業です。しかし、都会の生活には、カールとインガジェンセンのような若い人たちを魅了しています。毎年、それらの多くは農場を離れ、大都市の中や近くに位置している多くの工場での仕事を取る。
