内容简介

Neil 提前给菲菲买了一件圣诞礼物,他觉得这个礼物很酷,但菲菲好像不大喜欢这个礼物。听他们的对话,学习如何在收到不心仪的礼物时,礼貌、诚恳地感谢送礼人的一片心意。

(关于台词的备注: 请注意这不是广播节目的逐字稿件。本文稿可能没有体现录制、编辑过程中对节目做出的改变。)

Feifei

大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Neil

And I'm Neil.

Feifei

你手里拿的那个包裹是什么?Looks exciting!

Neil

It's a present.

Feifei

礼物?给谁买的礼物?

Neil

For you! For Christmas!

Feifei

给我的圣诞礼物?不过是不是有点早啊?

Neil

Well, I saw these and I just knew you'd love them so much - so I bought them! I can't wait till Christmas to see your face. Go on, open it now!

Feifei

You're too kind, Neil. OK...一副眼镜,哈利·波特眼镜!

Neil

Aren't they brilliant? Go on, try them on.

Feifei

I look ridiculous. And I don't even like Harry Potter. Oh, well, it's the thought that counts.

Neil

'It's the thought that counts' - an excellent expression, Feifei. If someone gives you a present which you don't like, you can say 'it's the thought that counts'.

Feifei

"It's the thought that counts" 是一句礼貌用语,通常用在赠送礼物的场景中。尽管收礼人可能不喜欢收到的礼物,但仍想感谢送礼人的一片心意的时候,就可以说 "It's the thought that counts.",也就是我们说的 "心意最重要,礼轻情意重"。

Neil

Let's hear some examples of this expression which is particularly useful around Christmastime.

Examples

A: Wow! That Elvis Presley onesie you're wearing is pretty weird.

B: Oh, thanks. My grandmother gave it to me for Christmas. It's the thought that counts, I suppose.

A: I have no idea what to get my aunt for her birthday.

B: Err, get her anything. It's the thought that counts.

A: Oh, no, not more tea towels! I was expecting something more exciting for our wedding presents.

B: You know what they say? It's the thought that counts!

Feifei

这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。本集节目里介绍的表达是 "It's the thought that counts." 通常用在赠送礼物的场景中。收礼人可以用这句话来感谢送礼人的一片情谊,而礼物是什么就不那么重要了。

Neil

A very useful expression for politely saying that a present someone bought you is really not what you wanted. OK, Feifei, lean over.

Feifei

Ouch! What are you doing with that pencil?

Neil

There we go. With that flash of lightning on your forehead now you really look the part - Feifei Potter.

Feifei

Hmm, I need a spell to make you vanish, Neil.

Neil

Goodbye!

Feifei

Bye!
