The script of this programme 本节目台词

Neil: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English I'm Neil and with me today is Li.

Li: Hi there I'm Li. Today's word is 'cheesy' and look Neil, I've got something cheesy for you!

Neil: Oh cheese crackers! Yummy… don't you just love them?

Li: No I find them too cheesy. 因为我不吃奶酪,所以任何含有奶酪的东西我都觉得奶味儿太强。 I find the flavour a bit too strong.

Neil: I like cheese and I love all cheesy food. (Short pause) but I don't like this music you're playing… it's too cheesy.

Li: Too cheesy? Do you mean the music is no good? It's Christmas…

Neil: Well it's all right for this time of the year and it goes with the festive mood. But generally speaking it's too predicable, cheap and cheerful. Let's listen to a couple of examples:

A: Would you like to go to the pantomime next week? I thought it might be fun.

B: Em… I know children love it but I find it a bit too cheesy. I used to love it as a kid.

A: Hi everyone I am organising our Christmas dinner. How about going back to The Cheshire Cheese pub?

B: The food was excellent, but you know what? The music there was a bit too cheesy,

A: Cheesy? Of course. Maybe that's why the pub is called ' The Cheshire Cheese'.

Li: 刚才讲话的第二个人听上去和高傲 a bit snobbish, don't you think?

A block of vieux bologne cheese

Too cheesy? Viex bologne is allegedly the smelliest cheese in the world.

Neil: Yes the word does have a slightly negative connotation, something too superficial and simple.

Li: Cheesy 这个词多少带有一些负面意思,形容那些视觉和听觉上有些肤浅,俗气的东西not deep and sophisticated?

Neil: No.

Li: I see. 刚才你说我播放的音乐太俗气,可见你对我的评价不高啊!

Neil: Now don't get me wrong. It's only that one particular piece because I've heard it so many times. Well I must say that your taste in clothes is fabulous. (Pause to get a closer look) Is this a new coat, I’ve never seen it before?

Li: Yes?

Neil: I think the bright colours suit you well, your face is lit up and you look very… attractive… and… charming… and….

Li: Oh stop it Neil. 你太肉麻了!I never knew you can be so cheesy! Come on have some cheese crackers and that'll stop your cheesy compliments…

Neil: Li, you're blushing! Bye for now.

Li: Bye.
