The script of this programme 本节目台词

Helen: 大家好。Welcome to Authentic Real English with me, Helen...

Rob: ...and me Rob. Hi there!

Helen: Rob, I like your trainers, very cool... and look at your designer jeans. Trendy! Rob 看起来挺时髦的,和以往大不一样啊!

Rob: So you like them then?

Helen: I do but... it's not really what someone your age normally wears.

Rob: I see. But don't you think it makes me look cool and fashionable and…younger?

Teenagers

Why is Rob dressing like a teenager?

Helen: Erm...

Rob: I'm just trying to get down with the kids.

Helen: The kids?! Rob 和孩子们出去一起玩?!So you're down with the kids? Down where exactly?

Rob: Oh Helen, keep up! I'm not going anywhere. I mean I'm keeping in with the kids. I'm in tune with the younger generation - yeah!

Helen: 啊!你是说你要跟上你的孩子们或者是下一代的时尚步伐,不能脱节了。So Rob, to do this you have to dress like a teenager?

Rob: Not just that. I share the same interests as young people. I listen to their music on my mp3 player. Look...

Helen: Could you turn that down please! So you're acting young when really you aren't! 这个短语 down with the kids 的意思是大人学小孩。Well, you are certainly a big kid Rob! Let's hear some examples of people using this phrase.

  • My Dad's bought a new skateboard so that he can be down with the kids!
  • I almost broke my neck snowboarding on holiday but hey, at least I'm down with the kids.
  • She's dyed her hair red and pierced her nose just so she can be down with the kids!

Helen: 大人跟着小孩儿学,这可有意思。So Rob, what else are you doing to be down with the kids?

Rob: Hey Helen, sort of, things like chillin' and being where it's at.

Helen: Rob not all kids talk like that.

Rob: Oh right. Well, I've got some rollerblades so I can blade round the park. The only trouble is... I can't seem to get them on... Ouch, my back!

Helen: Are you OK? Rob 想玩滑旱冰,结果你看老骨头不行了吧,把腰给伤了。Do you need some help?

Rob: Thanks. I think I'll just put my slippers on - much more comfortable.

Helen: 别忘了,要想跟着小孩子们赶时髦,那还得花点儿功夫,没那么容易。我们下次节目再见。Bye bye!

Rob: Bye. Ouch, my back! Helen, could you just put that slipper on there? Thanks!
