The script of this programme 本节目台词

Presenter/producer: John Escolme
John: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m John.

Jean: And I’m Jean.

John: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language.

Jean: 在我们的Real English地道英语节目当中,我们会来学习一些近代英语语言当中出现的新词汇和新用法。

John: It’s very important to stay up-to-date with English as new words and expressions enter the language all the time.

Jean: 那好,John, 我们今天要学的新词是什么呢?

John: Today’s new expression is ‘top of the range’. That’s four words – top.of.the and range, R.A.N.G.E

Jean: Top of the range. 能给我们解释一下它的意思吗?

John: Well, it’s not too difficult. Top of the range means the most expensive or best of a group of similar products.

Jean: 我知道了。Top of the range 就是说在同类事物中算是最好最先进或者最昂贵的一种或是一款,对不对John?

John: It’s common with cars. You might say ‘my father drives a top of the range BMW’.

Jean: I see. 那我们只能拿它形容车吗?

John: No. any product that involves technology will have a top of the range model. There will be cheaper types, then the best and most expensive.

A: Hey – I like your mobile phone!

B: Do you? It’s top of the range. I only bought it yesterday

C: That restaurant looks expensive.

D: Yes – look at the cars parked outside. All top of the range sports cars

Jean: Have you got anything that’s top of the range, John?

John: Well, my laptop computer used to be.

Jean: But not now?

John: No – it’s too old.

Jean: I see.

John: But my mobile phone is top of the range.

Jean: Really? Was it expensive?

John: Yes, but it’s excellent.

Jean: You’re lucky. Mine is very old now. 好,让我们再回顾一下,– top of the range – 就是形容某个事物最好、最先进、最有水准。Well, that’s all we have time for today.

John: Yes, I’m afraid it is. 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.
