内容简介

Neil 有一柜子旧物,不知道该怎么处置。菲菲建议他去 "freecycle"。Neil 知道什么是 "freecycling" 吗?他会按照菲菲的提议去做吗?听他们的对话,学习合成新词 "freecycle" 的意思和用法。

Feifei

Are you OK, Neil?

Neil

Yeah, just clearing out this cupboard, Feifei. It's full of old junk.

Feifei

Ooh, what a lot of stuff. Is that a... gorilla arm?

Neil

Yes! Ah... that was a fun project.

Feifei

Interesting.

Neil

Ooh, this is the microphone I recorded my first masterpiece with. Bit dusty. I wonder if it still works? Or maybe I should sell it? Who would buy it?

Feifei

Neil.

Neil

Yes?

Feifei

我有一个完美的解决方案。Why don't you freecycle it?

Neil

Oh, that's a good idea. I exchange a microphone... for a bicycle, right?

Feifei

No. You give it away. You give it to someone for free. It's another way of recycling. There are websites that help match you to people who want these things.

Neil

Free... recycle. Freecycle. Yes, I like the idea. But I would like a free bicycle even more!

Feifei

"Freecycle" 这个合成词的意思是 "通过网络作为联系的平台,免费提供给他人自己不再需要的物品"。我们来听几个包含合成词 "freecycle" 的例句。

Examples

When we installed our new kitchen, I freecycled all the old pots and pans.

I was going to buy a big, shiny monitor for my computer, but then I found someone was freecycling their old one. Win win!

Our apartment's tiny and my bike was taking up so much space. I couldn't face all the effort of selling it, so I just freecycled it. Easy!

Feifei

这里是 BBC英语教学的 "地道英语" 节目。在这集节目中,我们和大家一起学习 "freecycle" 这个新词。它指人们把自己不再使用的东西送给别人,而不是把它们扔掉,并且是通过互联网来沟通、安排整个捐赠的过程。

Neil

So, do you freecyle, Feifei?

Feifei

Sure. I did a big clear out last year and freecycled lots of stuff. Felt great! Anyway, what are you going to do with that old microphone?

Neil

You know, I feel kind of attached to it. I might just keep it for now.

Feifei

Your choice. What about the other stuff?

Neil

Well, I do like this gorilla arm. Might need it for a party one day. And this old VHS player could be useful. And I couldn't possibly get rid of this lovely old coat. Umm... Lots of memories...

Feifei

我看你是不会 "freecycle" 任何东西的!

Neil

Not quite yet. Though I wouldn't mind looking on some of those freecycling websites. See if I can pick up any more antique microphones.

Feifei

But you have no space in the cupboard!

Neil

Haha, well, we'll see. Bye for now.

Feifei

Goodbye!
