The script of this programme 本节目台词

Rosie: Hi. You're listening to Authentic Real English. I'm Rosie and today Li is with me.

Li: Hello!

Rosie: Today we're going to be talking about... Er... Li, what are we talking about again?

Li: I don't know. You're the one presenting the programme! 难道你不清楚今天的节目里你要说什么?

Rosie: I know, but my mind's just gone blank.

Li: Your mind has gone what?

Rosie: My mind's gone blank – which means it's completely empty, like a blank sheet of paper.

Li: Oh dear, completely empty? Rosie's 感觉大脑空空,就像是一张白纸,什么都忘了。 Right, let's start with something basic. Do you remember what your name is?

Rosie: Of course I remember what my name is! When you say your mind has gone blank, it means you've forgotten what you were going to say.

Li: Ah, I see. 如果你突然忘了你要说什么,用英语表示就是 your mind has gone blank. Or in this case you completely forgot what you were supposed to be talking about in this programme?

Rosie: Exactly! Do you remember it happened to me when I had to give that presentation...


Rosie's boss: Right, now, Rosie is going to talk a bit about the project and its aims.

A notebook

Rosie's mind has gone as blank as a piece of paper!

Rosie: Yes. Well... Er... Sorry, my mind's just gone completely blank.


Li: Well, don't worry. It happens to the best of us. I was in an interview once and I couldn't think of an answer to a very simple question. 记得有一次我参加面试,大概是因为太紧张了,结果连最简单的问题都答不上来...


Interviewer: So Li, can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Li: Ah, yes... There's so much to say, I don't know where to begin. Let's see... Erm... Sorry, my mind has just gone blank.

Interviewer: Right, I see.


Rosie: Really? And did you get the job?

Li: Yes, I did! I was really surprised after my mind went blank like that in the interview. 我竟然得到了那份工作,也许是矮子里面拔将军吧。I do have a lot of experience and they must have really liked me as a person…

Rosie: I've just remembered what we were supposed to be talking about today! We were going to discuss…

Li: Sorry Rosie, but it's a bit too late now. Next time, perhaps? If your mind doesn't go blank, that is.

Rosie: It won't. Thank you Li.

Li: Join us again for another edition of Authentic Real English. Our website is... erm... our website? 怎么,我竟然把咱们的网址给忘了。My mind's gone blank.

Rosie: It's www.bbcukchina.com. Bye!

Li: Ah, that's right. Thank you Rosie, bye bye!
