Rob
Hello, I'm Rob.

Feifei
大家好,欢迎收听 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目,我是冯菲菲。       

Rob
Now Feifei, did you try out that new cafe on the way to work today?

Feifei
Yes, I did – I was really impressed. 办公室旁街角上新开的一家小餐馆味道不错,店员也特别友好热情。So have you tried it, Rob?

Rob 
Yeah, I've been there twice now – but, well, it's no great shakes.

Feifei
No great shakes? 他们做的奶昔不好喝?怎么可能?They sell amazing banana milkshakes… hmmmm.

Rob
No, I wasn't talking about the shakes. I was referring to the cafe generally – there's nowhere to sit, the queues are long, and they didn't put enough froth on my skinny cappuccino – so it's no great shakes. In other words - it's not very good.

Feifei
原来在英语里,口语表达 no great shakes 的意思是“不怎么好,不怎么样”。So you're not impressed?

Rob
I'm afraid not. And 'no great shakes' also means 'ordinary' which describes this cafe. Let's hear some more examples of this phrase in action.

Examples
My sister puts on a good dinner party but she's no great shakes when it comes to cooking!

That new singer has a great voice but he's no great shakes at playing the guitar.

The film sequel is no great shakes compared with the first one – there was no story and the special effects were awful!

Feifei
表达 no great shakes 可以形容人或事物很平常,没有什么特殊或了不起的地方。But, Rob, maybe if you did try the banana milkshake it might change your opinion of the cafe? Look, I've got one here.

Rob
Ok, ok. Mmm, thanks. Yeah, that's not bad - this is a great shake! Perhaps I'll give it a second chance.

Feifei
Where are you going?

Rob
To buy a milkshake!

Feifei
You do know they cost four pounds?

Rob
What? Four pounds! Yes well, as I was saying, that cafe really is no great shakes.

Feifei
If you say so, Rob. Bye.
