The script of this programme 本节目台词

Feifei: 大家好,欢迎收听《地道英语》。我是冯菲菲,我的搭档是 Harry。

Harry: Hello there! And the expression we are going to look at in this programme is 'mind-blowing', or, 'to blow your mind'.

Feifei: 我们在这期节目来学习如何使用 mind-blowing 或 to blow your mind 这个表达。So anyway, Harry, I've heard you really like travelling.

Harry: Me? Yeah, I love to travel, to be free. Yeah, I've travelled.

Feifei: 快给我们说说,你都去过哪些国家?

Harry: All over. Europe, South East Asia, North Africa, Central America.

Feifei: 你去过的地方还真多!Europe 欧洲,South East Asia 东南亚,North Africa 北非,Central America中美洲。最难忘的是哪儿?So which was the best trip?

Harry: Hard to say, they were all great in their own way, but I think my trip to Cambodia really stands out.

Feifei: 柬埔寨?为什么呢?有什么特殊原因吗?

Harry: Well, it's got scenery, beaches, nice food and all that stuff, but the temples at Angkor Wat - well, they just blew my mind.

Feifei: 你去了柬埔寨的吴哥窟,你说吴哥窟 blew your mind?

Harry: Yeah, it's an amazing place. It's got incredible statues, roads, waterways all abandoned in the forest. Truly mind-blowing.

Feifei: 如果一样东西,一件事或一个人特别出色,好的让人难以置信,甚至可能会让你停下脚步,放下手里的一切去静静的欣赏它的时候,我们就可以说这个东西 mind-blowing 或 it blew our minds。就好像有时我们说“某某事冲击了我们大脑”,这里“冲击大脑”表达的意思是正面的、褒义的。So what else can be mind-blowing?

Harry: Anything amazing. A painting, a film, a story.

Feifei: 我们还可以用 mind-blowing 来形容 nature 大自然、the ocean 海洋、the planets 星球等等。

Harry: Yes, those things are all totally mind-blowing if you stop and think about them.

Feifei: 我们一起来听几个例句。

  • The latest tablet computer has an incredible camera and loads of other mind-blowing features.
  • One of the most mind-blowing things about the universe is the distance between the planets.
  • The battle scenes in the film were amazing - they just blew my mind.

Harry: So, to finish off, I thought I'd give you a mind-blowing fact about space and the universe. Something that will really blow your mind.

Feifei: 一个冲击大脑的常识 - let's hear it.

Harry: Did you know that every hour, the universe expands by a billion miles in all directions?

Feifei: 宇宙以每小时10亿英里的速度在不断向外扩张!That is mind-blowing!

Harry: I know - just mind-blowing.

Feifei: 那我也给你来一个关于蟑螂的“冲击大脑的”常识。

Harry: Cockroaches? Yuck! What is it?

Feifei: Cockroaches can live for several weeks without their head.

Harry: They can live without their heads?! Well, that's just blown my mind. Join us again for more mind-blowing English on Authentic Real English.
