The script of this programme 本节目台词
Neil: Oh… the programme has started … Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English, I'm Neil. And… bear with me because the clock has just fallen off the wall and I have to put it back again…
Li: And I am Li. Now, Li, the writer! I've nailed it, Neil!
Neil: Oh, have you? But the nail was loose because the clock fell off the wall and now I have to nail it back up again.
Li: Stop this noise please, Neil. I have just told you that I've nailed it! 我的书搞定了! 你怎么也没向我表示祝贺呢？You should say: Congratulations!
Neil: What have you nailed then? Was it that picture over there? Was it the map in the corner? Well, to be fair none of them have fallen to the floor… yet!
Li: No, I got my poetry book accepted by a publisher and I am going to be a writer. 我的诗集已经被一家出版商接受，啊，努力了十年总算没白费力气，这是我事业上的第一个成就，诗集的出版已经拍板定案了。I've nailed it!
Neil: Oh, congratulations, Li! I am impressed with your skills as a poet!
Li: To nail something 是一个固定的短语意思是准确地，完美地做成了一件事。
A: Mary finally got a job as a teacher. She went for the job interview and has nailed it!
B: Chess is a difficult game to play. I wish I could nail it but I just can't!
C: The final exam was not easy but my cousin nailed it and got a place at university.
D: Congratulations to him. He's nailed it!
Li: So, there you go, I have written poetry since I was a little girl. Then I decided to send it to a publisher and he accepted it!
Neil: That's all very nice, Li and I'm very happy for you. I hope that you don't mind my hammering this nail. I have to have this clock fixed to the wall as soon as possible.
Li: Yeah, you go ahead. 你接着钉吧，不过，这阵阵锤声到给了我创作灵感。 What rhymes with hammer…?
Neil: What do you mean?
Li: I am officially a poet now and everything inspires me to write my poetry. So hammer rhymes with…
Neil: … grammar.
Li: Ah, yes!
Neil: And we have to do it quickly because we have to prepare our English teaching programme.
Li: All right. 英语里的锤子一词 hammer 和语法一词 grammar 押韵
To the wall you hammer it all…
Clock, picture, a proud banner...
To the brain you fix with no pain...
Verb… noun… adjective…and English grammar....
Neil: You have really nailed it Li. Clock fixed and everything, let's go and prepare our programmes.
Li: Here's my last line 精读精听，英语灵通，节目短小，再见一声。Bye bye!
