The script of this programme 本节目台词

Feifei: Hello and welcome to the Authentic Real English. We're in Finn's kitchen, and he's hard at work.

Finn: Hello.

Feifei: Finn. What are you doing?

Finn: (Sawing sounds) Just sawing this table.

Feifei: Sawing the table? Why?

Finn: To make it round; a nice round shape.

A knight

Are you a legend?

Feifei: OK? Not quite sure why?

Finn: So I can have a round table. Like King Arthur...

Feifei: 你是说像亚瑟王一样?英国传说 the legend 亚塞王和圆桌骑士团?Finn, that sounds a bit weird.

Finn: OK fine, don't laugh. Actually, hang on, I'm not very good at DIY. My saw is stuck - it won't move.

Feifei: Give me that. You need to do it like this, nice and smooth.

Finn: Thanks Feifei, you're a legend.

Feifei: 别客气!A legend. 这里 legend 不是指像亚瑟王或其他来神话和传说里的人物,这里我们用 legend 来形容生活中你身边的人。

Finn: Yes - in British slang, we say someone is a legend if they do something very helpful, very generous or very successfully - like in these examples:

  • Thank you for that matey - you helped so much with the party today. You're a legend.
  • A: Hey, I found your car keys.
  • B: Oh great - you're a legend. I've been looking for an hour!
  • He's a legend. He drove me to the airport at 5am.

(Sawing sounds)

Finn: And there we have it, a perfect round table.

Feifei: Well done Finn. I'm impressed. Now what?

Finn: I thought we could invite a few friends round for dinner. Trouble is, I'm absolutely awful at cooking.

Feifei: Never fear - I'll do my special Sunday Roast...

Finn: Feifei, you are a legend.

Feifei: Well you can buy the ingredients! We'll need beef, potatoes, flour, carrots. Before you go off to the shops, can you remind everyone of our website?

Finn: Of course - bbclearningenglish.com. I'm quite hungry. See you next time everyone!

Feifei: Bye.
