发表时间:2018-02-11内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Helen and Neil are in the studio when Helen's phone rings. But when she picks up there's no sound. What's gone wrong? Find out and learn a useful phrase in the programme. 海伦和尼尔在演播室里,这时海伦的电话响了。海伦接起电话后却没有声音。出什么问题了?请收听本期节目,并学习节目中讲到的有用短语。 Note: This is not a word-for-word transcript. 注:音频与文本并不完全对应。 Helen: Hello welcome to The English We Speak, I'm Helen. 海伦:欢迎收听地道英语节目,我是海伦。 Neil: Hello everyone. I'm Neil. It's great to be here today, Helen. 尼尔:大家好。我是尼尔。海伦,今天来做节目太好了。 Helen: You are very cheerful today. 海伦:你今天很高兴啊。 Neil: I feel pretty good, I walked from the train station to the office and it seems to have really energised me. 尼尔:我现在感觉非常好,我今天是从火车站走到办公室的,看来这确实让我精力充沛。 (phone rings) (电话响了) Helen: That's my phone. Hello, hello? Anyone there? Hello? 海伦:是我的电话。你好,你好?请问找谁?你好? Neil: Oh, it looks like you may be out of juice. 尼尔:哦,看起来你的手机没电了。 Helen: What? I am not drinking any juice, but my phone has just gone dead. 海伦:什么?我并没有喝果汁,我的手机刚才关机了。 Neil: That's what I mean. Your phone isn't working because it's out of juice. 尼尔:我就是这个意思。你的手机不再运作是因为它没电了。 Helen: Please explain: what's juice got to do with my phone? 海伦:请你解释一下果汁和我的手机有什么关系? Neil: When you've used all the battery power of something like a mobile phone, so that it doesn't work anymore, we can say it's 'out of juice'. It's a slang expression. Have a listen to these examples: 尼尔:像手机这种用蓄电池的设备,如果不再运作,我们就可以说它“没电了”。这是一个俚语。请听下面的例句: Examples 例句 My laptop's out of juice. This is so frustrating. 我的笔记本电脑没电了。这太令人沮丧了。 I am packing three spare phone batteries so I don't run out of juice on my climbing trip. 我装了三块备用的手机电池,这样我的手机就不会在登山旅行中没电了。 Helen: I see. Can we use it for anything else apart from batteries? 海伦:我明白了。除了电池之外,还能用在其它地方吗? Neil: Sure, sometimes if a person feels low on energy, they could say 'I'm out of juice'. Also if your car is low on petrol, you could say 'The car's running out of juice.' 尼尔:可以,如果一个人感觉无精打采,那就可以说“我没精神”。如果你的汽车快没油了,你也可以说“车快没油了。” Helen: Thanks for explaining this phrase. Now I'm feeling quite thirsty — a glass of juice would be most welcome. 海伦:谢谢你解释这个短语。现在我非常渴,我想来一杯果汁。 Neil: Let's go and get some then. Meanwhile, charge your phone, so it's got plenty of juice. 尼尔:我们去喝果汁吧。另外,记得给你的手机充电,充满电就能继续使用了。 Helen: Will do. 海伦:我会的。 Neil: See you next time. 尼尔:下次见。 Both: Bye! 二人一起:再见! 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180211/536020.html
