The script of this programme 本節目台詞

Feifei: 大家好,歡迎收聽《地道英語》。我是馮菲菲。每次都一樣,我坐在錄音間等 Neil, 他從來就沒凖時過。今天我得故意惹惹他,以解我心頭之憤!對了,他還忘了昨天是我的生日呢。

Neil: Hi there, sorry, I'm late. Welcome to Authentic Real English, I'm Neil and with me today is Feifei.

Feifei: I've done all of that.

Neil: How are you, Feifei?

Feifei: Not... good...

Neil: Oh dear. What's the matter?

Feifei: I can't believe you forgot.

Neil: Forgot? Oh no, what have I forgotten?

Feifei: What haven't you forgotten? Well, for a start, you were supposed to meet me an hour ago.

Neil: Really? I thought I was only five minutes late.

Feifei: An hour and five minutes late. Secondly, you were supposed to be dressed smartly as we are meeting that very famous guest later. 我說他今天不光是晚了一小時零五分鐘,而且還穿的這麼破爛,一會兒怎麼去見那位重要的貴賓呢?

Neil: Famous guest?

Feifei: Yes, our very famous guest.

Neil: Who's that, then?

Feifei: How could you forget that Justin Bieber is coming in?!

A baby

A baby may be easily fooled but are you?

Neil: What?! My hero, Justin Bieber?! Where?! When?! Hang on a minute, Justin Bieber isn't coming in. I wasn't born yesterday, Feifei.

Feifei: You weren't born yesterday but I was - well, twenty-something years ago. It was my birthday! And you forgot! 在英語裏,如果你想告訴某人你不相信他們說的很明顯的謊話,那你就可以說 I wasn't born yesterday, 字面直譯就是 「我又不是昨天才出生的」. 請聽下面例句。

  • A: Did you know that I was the third man on the moon?
  • B: I wasn't born yesterday. You're British and I know that no British people have walked on the moon.
  • A: (Radio advert) Learn Russian in 3 days with just one minute's study an hour!
  • B: Those adverts are so stupid! The only way to learn a language is years of hard study and practice. I wasn't born yesterday.

Feifei: So, you can say "I wasn't born yesterday" to show that you are not easily fooled.

Neil: And I wasn't born yesterday, so I know that Feifei's claim it was her birthday yesterday isn't true.

Feifei: No, that bit is true.

Neil: Yeah, right. As I say: I wasn't born yesterday.

Feifei: I was! I really was born yesterday. I had a party and everything. Where's my card and present?

Neil: You're not going to fool me.

Feifei: Argh, you're so annoying! I never forget your birthday, Neil.

Neil: I know it wasn't your birthday.

Feifei: Yes it was.

Neil: No it wasn't. I wasn't born yesterday.
