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

Roy
And me, Roy. Feifei, why are you making that face?

Feifei
我的表情反映出這盤飯有多麼不好吃!你要不要嘗嘗?

Roy
Not really if it’s disgusting – but thanks. What does it taste like?

Feifei
Horrible – like old milk mixed with fish. It’s part of a new diet, but it just tastes really gnarly.

Roy
What is gnarly – is that the name of the dish?

Feifei
不是不是,我是說 “it tastes gnarly”,“Gnarly” 可以用來形容事物是 “不好的,讓人討厭的,使人感覺不舒服的”。

Roy
Well, that makes sense – but maybe you can tell me why you’re eating something disgusting after these examples.

Examples
That coffee I bought tasted really gnarly. I’m going to complain.

He thinks he’s a good singer, but the noises he makes are just gnarly.

Getting out of bed early in the morning is gnarly. I like a lie-in.

Feifei
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 “道地英語” 節目,我們正在教大家如何用單字 “gnarly” 來形容事物 “不太好”。

Roy
So, you’re eating gnarly food to feel better?

Feifei
That’s right! I want to be healthier so I don’t feel so tired in the morning! I have to get up at 4am every day and it’s really gnarly.

Roy
Well, that sounds like a good plan but why do you get up at 4am?

Feifei
I’m practising for the next talent show. I sing opera for three hours every morning before work!

Roy
Hmm… I’m sure your neighbours don’t think that’s gnarly at all! Bye, Feifei.

Feifei
Bye, Roy.
