The script of this programme 本节目台词

Presenter/producer: Jo Reffin

Jo: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Jo.

Jean: And I’m Jean.

Jo: In Real English, we look at words and phrases that you might not find in your dictionary.

Jean: 和汉语一样,英语语言里是充满了成语和口语词的,所以学习和了解这些短语和口语词是非常有用的。尤其这些说法和语言都是英国人日常说到用到的。那Jo,我们今天要来学习的新词是什么呢?

Jo: Today’s new expression is ‘whizz-kid’ – W.H.I.Z.Z. kid.

Jean: Whizz-kid. 你能给我们解释一下这个词的意思吗?

Jo: Well, whizz-kid is an expression that means someone who is young, successful and very good at what they do.

Jean: 我知道了。Whizz-kid就是用来形容那种年纪很小就很能干很成功的人的,可以算是天才神童的意思。

Jo: It’s usually used in a business environment, or in the news talking about business.

Jean: 原来whizz-kid经常出现在商界或者新闻报道中。那请问Jo,你能给我们举个例子叫我们怎么用这个词吗?

Jo: Many computer programmers are very young, and very successful, so you could call them computer whizz-kids.

Jean: I see.

Jo: But it doesn’t have to be computers.

Insert 录音片断________________________________________________

A: I went to the Stock Market yesterday. I couldn’t believe how young the people working there are!

B: I know – financial whizz-kids!

Jean: How is your friend Bill, Jo?

Jo: Bill? Very well. He is working for the bank now.

Jean: But he is very young.

Jo: Yes, but he’s a financial whizz-kid. He’s brilliant with money.

Jean: 好了,让我们回顾一下,– whizz-kid – 这个词用来形容那种小小年纪就很能干很成功的天才神童人物。Whizz-kid! Well, it looks like we are out of time.

Jo: Yes, we have to go. You’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. Join us again soon for more up-to-the-minute Real English. Bye.

Jean: See you next time.
