大家好,歡迎收聽 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我是馮菲菲。

Roy
… and me, Roy.

在這期節目中,我們要學習用一個大家都熟悉的單詞來形容事物 「非常棒」。Speaking of which, have you seen that new blockbuster that everyone’s talking about, 『Unicorns Eat Bananas in the Stars’?

Roy
What kind of title is that?! That film sounds awful!

Feifei
It’s not! 『Unicorns Eat Bananas in the Stars’ is fire!

Roy
Fire? The unicorns that eat bananas in the stars are on fire?! What is this film about?

Feifei
No, Roy! Don’t be silly, the banana-eating unicorns aren’t on fire! That would be ridiculous. 我剛才說 「the film is fire」。我的意思是這部電影非常火!The film is fire!

Roy
Ah, of course! We use fire to describe something that is really good! For example, your T-shirt is fire, Feifei!

Feifei
Thanks, Roy! I bought it this week! It’s official merchandise for the film! Anyway, let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
Have you checked out my new phone? It’s fire. It can do so many cool things!

I went to a concert to see 『Rob’s Rolling Biscuits’ last night. Their new song is fire.

That new series everyone is talking about is fire! It’s got dragons, zombies and vampires in it. I love it!

Feifei
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我們在一起學習用 「fire」 這個詞描述事物 「非常好,特別棒」,就好比我們漢語裡說的 「火」。

Roy
I might have to go tonight and watch the film at the cinema.

Feifei
You definitely should. It’s straight fire! 我們有時也可以在 「fire」 前面加上單詞 「straight」——「straight fire」。這裡 「straight」 就相當於 「very」。

Roy
So I probably should have said your t-shirt is straight fire, then.

Feifei
Only if that’s what you really think! You haven’t even seen the film yet!

Roy
What about my T-shirt? Do you think it’s fire?

Feifei
Honestly, no. It looks like it needs to be put in a fire. You should just burn it. The film on your T-shirt is not fire! That film is terrible.

Roy
Um… maybe I’ll buy a new one today.

Feifei
Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye!
