收听与下载

The script of this programme 本节目台词

Wang Fei: 大家好,欢迎收听《地道英语》节目。我是王飞。

Rob: Hello I'm Rob.

Wang Fei: Did you enjoy the party at the weekend?

Rob: Of course and it was good of William to buy all that food and drink – he's a good egg!

Wang Fei: A good egg?

Rob: Yes, he's someone who is good to other people and he's generous too!

Wang Fei: 我明白了。当我们说某人是一个 good egg, 也就是说他是一个好人。他们通常对别人好,也很慷慨大方。So you're telling me William is a generous person because he put on a good party?

Rob: Well, not just that. He's reliable as well. He always does what he says he will do, like helping me with the decorating.

Are you a good egg?

Wang Fei: 我明白了,good egg 不光是说一个人慷慨大方 generous, 并且值得信赖 reliable. So a good egg is really a nice person to know then?

Rob: Yes, a good egg is an all round good guy.

Wang Fei: 就是大好人,好人一个!Are we really talking about William?!

Rob: Yes.


Example

A: Thanks for buying me lunch; you really are a good egg.

B: I think we can trust her, she really is a good egg.


Wang Fei: 我们刚才听到的例句里,听到人们说 "You really are a good egg." "She is a good egg." 来指那些值得信赖并且很慷慨大方的人。It's a very British term isn't it?

Rob: It is, which is why I tend to say it in a posh voice – good egg. Of course, the opposite of a good egg is a bad egg. Let's hear how this term is used...


Example

A: He's a bad egg. I can't rely on him to do anything.

B: How can I trust you to be on time? You're such a bad egg.


Wang Fei: 在刚才听到的例句里,人们说 "He's a bad egg." "You are such a bad egg." 意思也就说某人不值得信赖是个坏家伙,是个坏蛋。

Actually Rob, I meant to tell you - I bought all the food and drink for William's party. He had forgotten to get any.

Rob: Really? Did he have egg on his face?

Wang Fei: Excuse me?

Rob: If you have egg on your face it means you're extremely embarrassed by your actions.

Wang Fei: 原来如此。如果你说某些人 have egg on their face, 意思是说他们对自己的行为感到非常不好意思,非常尴尬。Yes, William certainly had egg on his face but we still had a good party.

Rob: Of course we did!
