Feifei
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 I’m Roy! Ah, my legs are really aching. I’ve been standing all day!

Feifei
Well, there’s an easy fix for that, Roy. Sit down!

Roy
No, sorry – I can’t. I want to be at the front of the queue when we go to watch Rob’s Biscuit Band tonight.

Feifei
Firstly, I’m not going with you. Secondly, I think you’ve mixed up front of the queue with ‘frontliner’, which is a word we’re talking about in this programme.

Roy
Ah, right! A frontliner is a person who works in an advanced position. It’s been mentioned quite a lot recently due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Feifei
「Frontliner」 所指的不是 「排隊站在最前面的人」,它指的是 「一線工作者」。比如,醫護人員就屬於 「frontliner(一線工作者)」。

Roy
Yes, because they work on the frontline. Right, now I’m going to sit down, seeing as we’re not queuing to be at the front of the line.

Feifei
Yes, you should. Let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
Ahmed is a frontliner and works in the hospital as a doctor helping patients recover from diseases.

Wellington’s mother is a frontliner and attends many accidents as a first responder.

Roberta always wanted to be a teacher growing up, and now she works in a school as a frontliner.

Feifei
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們學習了如何使用合成詞 「frontliner」 來指 「從事一線工作的人」,比如醫生、護士。

Roy
They do amazing jobs. Sometimes they get referred to as ‘frontline doctors and nurses’ or ‘frontline workers’. Many people see them as heroes.

Feifei
Yes, these frontliners have been risking their lives to save people from the virus recently.

Roy
In the UK, a lot of people took part every week in something called ‘Clap for Carers’. It’s now become an annual event where you go outside and clap to celebrate the difficult and brave work of frontliners.

Feifei
And to all the people who listen to Authentic Real English who are frontliners – a round of applause. Bye!

Roy
Bye!
