The script of this programme 本節目台詞
(Sound of fireworks)
Rob: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English.
Feifei: Thanks Rob for inviting me to your firework party. Is there any reason why you are having it tonight?
Rob: Well, Feifei, as they say "Remember, remember the fifth of November"!
Feifei: 十一月五號 - I hadn't forgotten - that is today's date Rob but...
Rob: ...it's what we say in the UK to remember the day when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London back in 1605. Now, on this date, we have firework parties to remember the event.
Feifei: 這個節日挺奇怪的！在英國，每年的11月5號是焰火節，這個節日是為了紀念在1605年企圖炸掉議會的英國人蓋伊·福克斯。Rob, that is quite a serious event to celebrate but this party is fun - it's going really well.
Rob: Oh thanks Feifei. It's going with a bang isn't it!
Feifei: Going with a bang? 有一個爆炸？ It's certainly going with a bang because of all these... fireworks. (Shouting) It's very noisy!
Rob: (Shouting) Yes it is! But when something is going with a bang it doesn't always have to involve fireworks. (The fireworks get quieter) That's better. If we say a party or an event is going with a bang, it's an informal way of saying it's going very well - it's a success and very exciting.
Feifei: I see. 短語 to go with a bang 的意思是一個活動或派對辦的轟轟烈烈的、極其成功。
Rob: Let's hear some examples...
- Everyone enjoyed the parade especially as it didn't rain; it really went off with a bang!
- The wedding party went with a bang as soon as everyone had a glass of champagne!
- This party should really go with a bang now that the band is playing.
Rob: OK, Feifei, just one more firework to light. So, here goes... it's going to be a big one... so stand back!
Feifei: ...hmm, 好像最後的這個煙花不怎麼成功。
Rob: No! Ah well, it was still a good party. Good food, lots of drink, good music and good company - don't you agree?
Feifei: Definitely Rob. It certainly went with a bang! Rob 今天的這個焰火派對辦的非常成功！In fact we could say it was... 'banging'!
Rob: Excuse me?
Feifei: 非常成功 banging - keep up Rob, 這是另一個表示特別好的單詞。It was fantastic, your party was 'banging'!
Rob: Well, thank you Feifei but hold on... that last firework looks like it's about to go off... watch out!!
Rob: Now that really went with a bang!
