Programme script 本节目台词:

Feifei: Hello, welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English, I’m Feifei.

Diarmuid: And I’m Diarmuid.

Feifei: 你怎么把 a bottle of wine 带到录音棚里来了?A bottle of wine 一瓶葡萄酒。

Diarmuid: Oh, I thought we might get thirsty.

Feifei: Thirsty! 对不起,我大白天中午的时候可不喝酒。

Diarmuid: Oh, I was only joking. I’m taking the bottle of wine to a dinner party.

Feifei: I see. 噢,原来如此。Is one of your friends cooking?

A couple in a restaurant

She looks happy that they brought their own bottle

Diarmuid: No, we’re meeting in a restaurant.

Feifei: And they let you bring your own alcohol?

Diarmuid: Yes, the restaurant has a BYOB policy.

Feifei: B.Y.O.B. 这个词是什么意思呢?

Diarmuid: It means Bring Your Own Bottle.

Feifei: Oh I see. It is an acronym. 这是一个首字母缩略词。

Diarmuid: Exactly, it is an acronym. The B stands for Bring. The Y stands for Your. The O stands for Own. And the B stands for Bottle.

Feifei: 英国有很多餐厅可以让顾客自带酒水的吗?

Diarmuid: Not that many. I wish they did though because it’s a lot cheaper than buying alcohol in the restaurant.

Feifei: A lot cheaper. 便宜多了。

Diarmuid: If I was given the choice, I would always prefer to bring my own bottle.

Feifei: What would these people do if given the choice?


Examples:

I prefer BYOB because I don’t drink and I hate splitting the bill at the end of a meal and having to pay for expensive wine that everyone else has been drinking.

I’m not organised enough for BYOB. I’m happy to pay a little extra if it means I have one less thing to organise.

I’d choose BYOB every time. I mean that way you can always guarantee that you are going to get a wine you like. There’s nothing worse than bad house wine.


Feifei: So most people seem to prefer BYOB.

Diarmuid: Yes, well it is cheaper and we are in a credit crisis.

Feifei: Credit crisis 信贷危机。I understand, 确实现在大家都需要精简开支了。

Diarmuid: On that note, we will have to finish today’s programme. I’m heading off to dinner.

Feifei: And to drink your bottle of wine.

Diarmuid: Of course.

Feifei: 感谢大家收听我们今天BBC英语教学的《地道英语》节目。
