The English We Speak是英国B电台为英语学习者量身打造的一档英语节目 今天,两位主持人骑着新买的托出去兜风了,让我们看看会发生什么有趣的事情Wang Fei: Welcome to The English We Speak. I'm Wang Fei!Finn: And I'm Finn!Wang Fei: Finn has decided to take us out a ride on his new motorbike today and he's very proud of it.Finn: I am, very proud of it. I thought it would be good to get out of the studio. Look at all the beautiful, green fields around us, Wang Fei.Wang Fei: Yes, beautiful green fields. That's the word the day isn't it: green?Finn: Green, yes!Wang Fei: A bit easy, isn't it? Everyone knows the colour green!Finn: The colour green? No, not that meaning, Wang Fei!Wang Fei: So, what do you mean? Green as in good the environment?Finn: No, not that green either!Wang Fei: Oh, OK, maybe another green? Oh, OK, maybe, green with envy? I know that phrase, that means to envy somebody, doesn't it?Finn: Yes, that's right. But what are you envious about, Wang Fei? That's not what we're... oh! ... ahhh!FX - CRASHBoth: Ow!Wang Fei: Finn, you are a terrible, terrible driver!Finn: I know.Wang Fei: Will you tell me what this green means?!Finn: I'm sorry, Wang Fei. What I mean is I'm very green at riding motorbikes, that's what I wanted to say. Green means inexperienced or new to something.Wang Fei: Oh, I see. So when do we use it?Finn: Well, normally we use it to describe someone who is new to a particular job or skill.Wang Fei: Ooh, I see. But I'm not feeling good. So why don't we listen to some examples a moment?I'm a bit green at editing, so it takes me a long time to edit things.He's a bit green in this job so he's bound to need some help.My uncle's very green at searching the internet.

But I'm still not feeling that great to be honest…FX - BIKE STARTS Finn: What was that, Wang Fei?Wang Fei: Oh nothing. Let's go.Finn: Wow, what beautiful countryside…Wang Fei: Gosh, I'm really feeling ill to be honest. I'm worried we're going to crash again.Finn: Wang Fei, what did you say? Are you ok?Wang Fei: Not really.Finn: Oh no, you look bad. You've gone green!Wang Fei: What?Finn: You've gone green – it means you look ill!Wang Fei: Another green phrase... Finn – can't you just concentrate on your driving!Finn: OK, sorry. OK then! Bye everyone…Wang Fei: And wish me luck. Bye. 赏析: 本期节目,两位主持人主要讲了和green有关的几个词组,让我来总结一些 Green有“生疏、没经验”的意思,be green inat something即对于某件事情或工作来说是新手,英语中也有词组a green hand,就是“新手”的意思Green还有“嫉妒”的意思,make somebody green with envy,就是“让某人非常嫉妒”的意思 You've gone green意思是“你被吓得脸色都变了” Green还有“环保”的意思,比如green food ,意思是“绿色食品” 当然,green还可以表示颜色“绿色” Green的本意是“绿色”,其他的意思都是它的引申义,比如植物的新芽都是绿的,所有green引申出了“新手”的意思;中国人说嫉妒是“眼红”,而英国人就理解成“眼绿”,所有green with envy有“嫉妒”的意思;中国人喜欢说的“吓得脸色变了”是变得“惨白”,而英国人喜欢说“变绿”;同样,绿色象征“环境好”,所有green又有了“环保”的意思 学习词汇时,应当联系其本意来理解其引申义,这样,往往会有意外的收获 8659。
