Feifei
Hi! Err, Neil?

Neil
Err… yes, Feifei?

Feifei
你這是在幹什麼呢?

Neil
Err, just… standing here. Umm… actually, I can’t remember why I came in here.

Feifei
你一副心不在焉的樣子!We’re in the studio, and we’re about to record an episode of Authentic Real English.

Neil
Of course we are, sorry. I had a brain fade there.

Feifei
Anyway – let’s get on with the programme. 這集節目裡要教給大家的表達就是 「brain fade」!Imagine that.

Neil
Haha, well – let’s explain it. 『Brain fade’ is a slang term meaning a short period when you can’t think clearly or remember things.

Feifei
For example: when you walk into a room and forget why you went there.

Neil
That’s a brain fade. Never happens to me!

Feifei
And how about this: when you can’t remember where you put your keys?

Neil
Ah yes, I know that one. Now you mention it, where are they?

Feifei
Haha. Well, 「brain fade」 是一個俚語表達。我們用它來描述一個人不能清楚地思考或記不住事情的短暫時間,也就是所謂的 「大腦空白」。在使用它的時候,我們常說 「have a brain fade」。下面,咱們來聽幾個包含 「brain fade」 的例句。

Examples
I saw an old colleague on the street last week. Completely forgot her name! A serious case of brain fade. Really embarrassing.

I’m sure I did terribly in the exam. I had a major brain fade.

I hate doing job interviews. It’s not that the questions are difficult, I just get brain fade as soon as I walk into the room. Can’t even remember my own name!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。這集節目中教給大家一個俚語表達 —— 「brain fade」。它用來描述一個人在短時間內大腦一片空白。So let’s continue with the programme. Neil. Neil?

Neil
Good. Yeah. Umm… Give me a second.

Feifei
What now?

Neil
I took off my glasses while we were listening to those examples. You know, I can’t see them anywhere.

Feifei
Neil.

Neil
Yes?

Feifei
They’re on your head.

Neil
Ah, that’s a relief. Another brain fade, I’m afraid. I think I just need a good night’s sleep.

Feifei
You do that! That’s our phrase – brain fade. Let’s hope we made it easy to remember!

Neil
Bye.

Feifei
Bye!
