The script of this programme 本节目台词
William: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. My name is William Kremer.
Li: And I'm Yang Li.
William: Li, do you mind if we don't look at a phrase today?
William: Er nothing. I've got to go and meet a friend at the airport.
William: Is that all right?
William: Right, thanks Li! I'm just going to bounce.
Li: Hey, William, wait, wait! What do you mean? What did you say just now?
William: I'm just going to bounce; I'm going to leave.
Man: Hey Tom – where are you going? The party's just getting started!
Man 2: Ah sorry dude, I gotta bounce. I'm on an early shift tomorrow.
William: Yes, that's right. He said "I gotta bounce".
Li: To bounce 是起身离开某处的意思。这可是个很不寻常的一个词儿。So where does this slang usage come from, William?
William: It's a phrase that has come from the USA and it's urban slang, so it's something that young cool kids might say.
Li: Not you, then.
William: What do you mean?
William: Hey! That's not fair. I listen to hip hop. And one of my jumpers has a hood.
Li: Anyway, we have talked about a phrase now. So if you want you can bounce.
William: Right. Bouncing.
Li: 好了 William 走了。让我们放松一下听一段轻音乐...
