Neil: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English, I'm Neil Edgeller.

Feifei: 大家好,我是冯菲菲。Neil you look terrible! You've got red eyes, grey skin and your voice is so rough!

Neil: Oh, Feifei, you're right. I feel terrible. I went to a leaving do last night and I drank too much beer… and wine…

Feifei: 原来Neil 不舒服是因为昨晚喝多了。A leaving do? Do?

Neil: Yes, a leaving do. A colleague has got a job at another company and had a party to celebrate his last day.

Feifei: So it was a party?

Some people at a party

The noun 'do' is another word for party.

Neil: Yes, yes, that's what I said. It was a leaving do.

Feifei: Right, so 'do' is a noun and it means party?

Neil: Yes, yes, that's right, yes. It's mainly used in British English. Urgh.

Feifei: 在英式英语中,当我们把单词 do 做名词使用的时候有聚会、社交活动的意思。
