Beat the drum 热烈支持

Neil: Hello, Li. Are you ready?

Li: Neil! We're going to that event for the protection of turtles, aren't we Neil? Where is it happening again?

Neil: By the beach. They're going to make speeches and then release some small turtles into the sea.

Li: How sweet! I love baby turtles!

Neil: Yes, they're lovely, aren't they? Let's go and join all the scientists, animal lovers and campaigners and beat the drum for the cause!

Li: Beat the drum? Will there be drums there?

Neil: No. I don't think so...

Li: But if you think we need to drum, I have one here. We can beat the drum, like this…

Neil: You're a great drummer, Li, but sadly no need for drums. It might scare the baby turtles.

Li: But why are you talking about drums then?!

Neil: I'll tell you. In English, when we say 'to beat the drum' or 'to bang the drum', we mean to speak with enthusiasm about an idea in order to persuade or convince other people to support it.

Li: Ah! I see. 对呀。 'Beat the drum' 或 'bang the drum' 不就是打鼓助阵嘛!就是积极热烈地支持一种观点以便说服更多的人也来支持。

Neil: No. 'Beat the drum' is our expression in this edition of Authentic Real English. Now let's hear some examples of how it's used.

Part of the job of a prime minister is to visit other nations and beat the drum for your country, to support business and jobs.

Mary is shy but her colleagues keep telling her: "If you don't beat the drum for your own ideas, who will?"

Li: Okay, Neil. I'm ready to beat the drum for turtle conservation!

Neil: Great, we'd better go. We'll be late.

Li: Okay. Ready? One, two, one, two …

Neil: You are quite keen on this instrument, aren't you? You're not taking it with you… are you?

Li: Of course not. I don't want to frighten the animals. But I might end up forming a band. Mmm…how about The Baby Turtles?

Neil: Yeah, that's a good name! Let's go. Bye.

Li: Bye.
