地道英语:某人像恐龙(音频)

2014-08-28    来源:BBC英伦网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

来自BBC Learning English节目的地道英语,纯正表达,还有音频喔。某人像恐龙怎么说呢?

Someone is like a dinosaur 某人像恐龙

Helen: Hello, Welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English. I'm Helen.

Rob: And I'm Rob.

Helen: Rob, can I ask you something?

Rob: Yes, of course. Go ahead.

Helen: My son's friends came to visit at the weekend. They were all in the bedroom playing with dinosaurs.

Rob: Sounds fun.

Helen: Yeah, I even let them watch a dinosaur movie and play a computer game. Then I heard one of them say his parents were dinosaurs.

Rob: Oh, dear.

Helen: I'm a mum, I don’t think I look anything like a dinosaur, do I?

Rob: No, you don’t look like one at all. You are 100% human! What did the boy say about his parents?

Helen: He said that they don’t have a TV at home, and that his parents don’t have mobile phones either. I was quite surprised by that.

Rob: No wonder he thinks his parents are dinosaurs. When we call someone a ‘dinosaur’, we mean they're living in the past, they're not very modern, and probably don't use a lot of technology.

Helen: 在英语里,当我们听到某人被形容为恐龙时 a dinosaur,意思就是他们还生活在过去,行为和想法过时了,而且也不会使用现代化高科技的东西。

Rob: Exactly. Let’s hear some examples.

My grandfather just bought his first digital camera. I've been telling him to get one for years! He’s a dinosaur when it comes to modern technology.

A: Have you met Jane’s new husband?

B: Yes, he talks like someone from the 1930s. Really old-fashioned!

A: I know, he said he hates modern technology.

B: Oh, he’s such a dinosaur.
Helen: So calling someone a dinosaur means they're not in touch with the modern world.

Rob: Yes, a bit old-fashioned, maybe conservative in their thinking, and not keen for new challenges.

Helen: Well, I love modern technology.

Rob: Are you on Weibo? Weixin?

Helen: No, what are these?

Rob: Oh dear Helen! You are a dinosaur!
