Neil 绞尽脑汁想给大家教一个新的地道表达,不过菲菲觉得他总是把已经教过的内容无谓地重复。听节目,学描述一个人"无谓地重复做无用功"的表达。

Feifei

大家好,欢迎收听BBC英语教学的《地道英语》节目,我是冯菲菲。

Neil

... and... hello... I'm Neil.

Feifei

Err... Neil, could we have your attention, please?

Neil

Sorry, Feifei. I'm still trying to finish the script for this programme.

Feifei

什么?现在要录的节目的稿子还没写完? So what's going to happen today, Neil?

Neil

Hmmm... I thought that you could pretend to arrive late... I've lost my coffee... I just need to think of an authentic real English phrase to use...

Feifei

Oh come on, Neil, there's no need to reinvent the wheel!

Neil

Feifei, you're amazing - 'to reinvent the wheel' - that's a great English phrase. I'll use that in my script.

Feifei

Reinvent the wheel 这个表达的意思就是"无谓地重复,浪费时间做无用功"。 So I'm saying, don't waste time writing a script that has already been written - all your ideas have been written before!

Neil

Really?

Feifei

I'll show you - but first let's hear some more examples of this phrase.

Examples

Don't reinvent the wheel: we already have a plan that seems to work well.

He spent days working out the new course syllabus when we had planned it already - he's just reinvented the wheel!

Nancy's new idea is just the same as the old one - she's just reinvented the wheel!

Feifei

英语表达 reinvent the wheel 用来强调一个人重复地做一件别人已经做过的事情,浪费时间和精力。Now let me show you that old script...

Neil

Oh yeah. Thanks. Let's see. Arrives late... drinks coffee... I tell a joke... you're right Feifei, this is almost the same script. I'll just copy the ideas for today's script.

Feifei

Actually, maybe you shouldn't reinvent the wheel - and start writing something new and original.

Neil

Sorry, we're out of time, Feifei. I just need to say something funny and we can go... I've had a 'wheely' good time!

Feifei

That wasn't funny.

Both

Bye!
