内容简介

菲菲的唱歌和跳舞水平怎么样?唱歌跳舞的水平在她想投诉一件事情时,有多重要?本集节目中所介绍的表达看似有些奇怪,不过,别小瞧它,也许在你想 "小题大做" 的时侯它就能派上用场。听菲菲和 Rob 的对话,学习 "make a song and dance about something" 的意思和用法。

(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,这里是BBC英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob

And hello, I'm Rob.

Feifei

Hey Rob, watch this...

Rob

Yes, very impressive, Feifei. But why are you singing and dancing?

Feifei

Well, I booked a holiday in a lovely hotel with a fantastic swimming pool.

Rob

And you're celebrating by singing and dancing? Very strange!

Feifei

No Rob, of course not! 我预定了酒店后,发现酒店的游泳池正在装修,不能使用,所以我想取消预定,但是那家酒店不让我取消预定。

Rob

Oh right. So you're just singing about it?

Feifei

因为 Neil 说我应该给酒店打电话,然后 "make a song and dance about my reservation",所以我想在给他们打电话之前,先练习练习。

Rob

Hold on, Feifei. Don't waste your time. What Neil means by 'to make a song and dance about it', is to make lots of unnecessary fuss about it - basically, to over-react.

Feifei

Ah, got it! 其实在英语里,"to make a song and dance about something" 的意思是 "对一件事情大惊小怪,反应过激,小题大做"。Yes, I can do that!

Rob

Well, go and make that phone call while we listen to some examples.

Examples

My boyfriend makes such a song and dance about doing the housework - but to be honest, it's not that hard!

Don't make a song and dance about it - I only asked you to move seats so I can see the screen.

I can't believe they lost your suitcase at the airport; you should make a song and dance about this and get a proper apology.

Feifei

这里是 BBC英语教学的《地道英语》节目。在这集节目中,我们一起学习的地道表达是 "to make a song and dance about something",这个表达用来描述对一件事情大惊小怪,过分激动,小题大做。And Rob, that's what I did when I called the hotel.

Rob

So you over-reacted?

Feifei

Yes.

Rob

You made lots of fuss? You made a scene?

Feifei

我是小题大做了,还大吵大闹了!And guess what?

Rob

What?

Feifei

They apologised and offered me a free holiday when the swimming pool has reopened and said I could bring a guest for free.

Rob

Brilliant - a free guest! So, when shall we go?

Feifei

We, Rob? No, I'm taking my best friend Maria.

Rob

What?! I'm not your best friend. All that time we've worked together. All the things I've given you...

Feifei

Calm down, Rob. Don't make a song and dance about it. I'll send you a postcard.

Rob

Oh thanks.

Feifei

Bye-bye.

Rob

Bye.
