发表时间:2018-01-12内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Li: Hi Neil. How are you today? 莉:嗨,尼尔。你今天怎么样? Neil: Hello Li. I'm a bit worried. All these bills to pay... there'll be no money left for my holiday. 尼尔:你好,莉。我有点担心。所有这些账单都要付……那我就没有钱去度假了。 Li: My problems are over and so are yours, Neil! I'll pay all my bills, and yours, and... where do you want to go for a holiday? How about Dubai? Five star hotel, by the beach, drinking champagne... 莉:尼尔,我的账单已经解决了,你的也会解决的!我会付清我的账单和你的……你想去哪里度假呢?迪拜怎么样?五星级酒店,在海滩旁边喝香槟…… Neil: Well, it's very generous of you, Li, but where are you going to get the money for that? 尼尔:嗯,你真是太大方了,莉,不过你的钱是哪儿来的? Li: I won the lottery! 莉:我中彩票了! Neil: The lottery?! That's brilliant! How much? 尼尔:彩票?!太棒了!你中了多少? Li: Yes. I won US$10m! It's a lot of money, Neil! They sent me an email this morning. 莉:对啊。我中了1000万美元!好大一笔钱呢,尼尔!今天早上他们给我发了封电子邮件。 Neil: An email? 尼尔:电子邮件? Li: Yes. The only thing that the organisers are asking is for me to pay them a small fee and give them the details of my bank account so that they can transfer the money. I'm a millionaire! 莉:对啊。组织者唯一的要求就是让我付他们一点儿费用,把我银行账户的详细信息告诉他们,这样他们就能转账了。我就要成为百万富翁了! Neil: Mmmm... I smell a rat! 尼尔:嗯……我觉得不太对劲! Li: A rat?! Where?! I am terrified of rats! Where is it? I can't see a rat! 莉:老鼠?!哪儿呢?!我非常害怕老鼠!在哪里呀?我没看到老鼠! (Li stands on her chair) (莉站在椅子上) Neil: No, no, no! No need to stand on the chair, Li. There's no rat, no mouse, there're no rodents at all here. In English, when we say we 'smell a rat' we mean we're suspicious of someone: we feel there's something wrong. 尼尔:不,不是,不是!莉,没有必要站在椅子上。没有老鼠,没有老鼠,这里完全没有啮齿动物。在英语中,我们用smell a rat来形容我们怀疑某个人:我们觉得有些问题。 Li: So you think there is something wrong with this lottery? 莉:所以你认为这个彩票有问题吗? Neil: Yes, I'm afraid so. Let's hear some examples of how to use 'smell a rat', today's expression in The English We Speak. 尼尔:对,恐怕是的。这就是今天地道英语节目要学的表达,我们来听一些例句,看看如何使用这个短语。 A: I read an article about a diet which makes you lose six kilos in one week. It says there is no need for exercise. A:我刚看了一篇有关节食的文章,可以让你在一周内减掉6公斤。里面说没有必要锻炼。 B: Six kilos in one week?! That's impossible! I smell a rat! B:一周内减掉6公斤?!那根本不可能!我很怀疑! Jane smelt a rat when she read a job advert for actresses in the newspaper. It said "no training or experience required", but they wanted someone "good-looking and open-minded". 简在报纸上看到一份招聘女演员的广告,她对此很怀疑。上面说“不需要培训或经验”,但是他们却想找“漂亮又开放的人”。 Li: Oh. No money for me then... but are you sure, Neil? Maybe this one is for real...? 莉:哦。那我就没有钱了……但是尼尔,你确定吗?也许这个是真的呢……? Neil: No, it's not, Li. And you shouldn't send emails around with your bank details. It's very dangerous. Someone might steal your money! 尼尔:不是,莉,不是真的。你不应该把你的银行账户信息用邮件发过去。这太危险了。有人可能会偷走你的钱! Li: Yes. I should be careful with my email. 莉:是啊。我发邮件应该更小心。 Neil: Think: have you ever entered the Australian lottery? Did you buy a ticket? 尼尔:你想想:你去过澳大利亚的彩票站吗?你买过彩票吗? Li: No. I've never even been to Australia. 莉:没有,我从来没去过澳大利亚。 Neil: So how could you be the winner? It's a scam, Li. It's a dishonest way to make money by deceiving people like you. 尼尔:那你怎么可能中彩票呢?莉,这是个骗局。这是通过欺骗像你这样的人来赚钱的不正当手段。 Li: You are right, Neil. I wanted to win the lottery so much! 莉:尼尔,你是对的。我是太想中彩票了! Neil: So let's go out and buy a proper lottery ticket. One we know is real! 尼尔:那我们去外面买张彩票吧。买张真的彩票! Li: Maybe we will win. 莉:也许我们会中奖的。 Neil: Maybe we will! Let's go. Bye. 尼尔:也许会的!我们走吧。再见。 Li: Bye. 莉:再见。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180112/527632.html
