The english we speak(BBC讲授)第349期:Donkey's years 很永劫间

宣布工夫:2018-04-13内容泉源:VOA英语学习网

Why has Rob got a donkey in the studio?! It's probably got something with today's authentic English phrase which is about not doing something for a long time. How long will it take for Feifei to work out what it means?

为什么罗布要带驴来演播室?!这能够与明天要讲的隧道英语短语有关,这个短语表现很永劫间没有做某事。菲菲需求多永劫间能理解这个短语的意思?

Feifei: Hello and welcome to The English We Speak. I'm Feifei...

菲菲:各人好,欢送收听隧道英语节目。我是菲菲。

Rob: And I'm... Rob.

罗布:我是……罗布。

Feifei: Errr... sorry Rob. What did you say?

菲菲:呃……负疚,罗布。你刚说什么?

Rob: I said, I'm... Rob.

罗布:我说,我是……罗布。

Feifei: Right, and why have you brought a donkey into the studio?

菲菲:好吧,你为什么要带头驴来演播室?

Rob: To help with today's authentic English phrase – which is... donkey's years.

罗布:为了协助各人学习明天的隧道英语短语——donkey's years。

Feifei: So is this about age and how I look like a donkey?

菲菲:这个短语是与年事有关吗?我看起来像驴吗?

Rob: Not exactly Feifei. The phrase comes from rhyming slang – donkey's years rhymes with donkey's ears, yes?

罗布:不是的,菲菲。这个短语来自同韵鄙谚,donkey's years和donkey's ears押韵,对吧?

Feifei: Yes. 'Donkey's years' does rhyme with 'donkey's ears' – so you're saying my ears are like a donkey's?

菲菲:对,donkey's years确实和donkey's ears押韵,以是你的意思是说我的耳朵像驴耳朵?

Rob: No. Unlike your ears, donkey's ears are long and when we say we haven't done something for 'donkey's years' we mean we haven't done something for a long time.

罗布:不是。和你的耳朵纷歧样,驴耳朵十分长,当我们说“很永劫间”没有做某事的意思是,我们好久没有做过这件事了。

Feifei: Right. Good, so it's got nothing do with me looking like a donkey?

菲菲:好。很好,以是不是说我长得像驴?

Rob: Absolutely not. Let's hear the phrase in action...

罗布:固然不是了。我们来听一下这个短语怎样使用。
