Feifei
Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. 大家好,我是菲菲。

Neil
… and hello, I’m Neil.

Feifei
Do you know who made that awful mess in the kitchen?

Neil
It’s me! I’m just cooking! I’ll clean it up as soon as I’m finished.

Feifei
Well, it looks like a dog’s dinner in there!

Neil
A dinner for my dog? Don’t be silly. I’ve already cooked for Leia, my dog. This is a meal for the whole BBC Learning English team!

Feifei
我剛才說 “It looks like a dog’s dinner in there.”,意思是 “廚房裡面一團糟”,我們可以用 “a dog’s dinner(狗食)” 來比喻 “混亂的狀況”。

Neil
You think the kitchen looks a mess? But I’m only using one pan!

Feifei
Not that kitchen – the other one! Look at it!

Neil
Oh, wow! That really is a dog’s dinner. I wonder who made all that mess.

Feifei
Let’s find out while we listen to these examples.

Examples
He made a dog’s dinner of his final project and failed the course.

She made a dog’s dinner of her hair when she tried to cut it herself.

The room looked like a dog’s dinner five minutes after my son arrived.

Feifei
這裡是 BBC英語教學的 “道地英語” 節目,我們可以在日常口語中用 “a dog’s dinner” 來比喻 “亂糟糟、混亂的狀況”。Neil, did you find out who made all that mess?

Neil
No, I didn’t. You?

Feifei
No, but what’s great is that everyone on the BBC Learning English team is working together to clear it up! They’re ready to try the meal you’re cooking!

Neil
Wow, that sounds like a bit of pressure! Hopefully, I didn’t make a dog’s dinner of the recipe!

Feifei
你這個廚藝高手就別謙虛了!

Neil
Well, Leia, my dog, never complains when I cook for her.

Feifei
She’s a lucky girl. Bye, Neil!

Neil
Bye.
