Feifei
大家好!歡迎來到 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我是馮菲菲。

Neil
… and me, Neil.

Feifei
Hey, Neil. Would you like to try this new coconut smoothie I bought from that new cafe?

Neil
Coconut? Ugh… I hate coconut!

Feifei
Oh, right.

Neil
In fact, I hate that new cafe! It’s too expensive.

Feifei
但是那家咖啡館裡賣的食品質量非常好,服務人員也很友好。他們總是面帶笑容地跟顧客打招呼。

Neil
Ugh! I hate talking to people in the morning.

Feifei
Oh, dear, Neil. You’re very negative. 『Hate’ is a very strong word. You are a perfect example of a 『hater’. This describes a negative person who dislikes someone or something – but not everything, unlike you, Neil! Let’s hear from some other 『haters’.

Examples
I’m a real hater of restaurants adding a fixed service charge to the bill. Why can’t I choose how much to tip?

My wife’s a hater of horror films, so we had to go and see a rom-com at the cinema instead!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」。在剛剛聽到的例句中,一個 「hater」 憎恨餐館在賬單上增加固定的服務費;另一個 「hater」 不喜歡看恐怖片。So those are examples of 『haters’ – negative people who dislike someone or something, and sometimes without good reason. Like Neil.

Neil
Oh, I hate it when you call me names! But, Feifei, I am allowed to dislike things and I am not as bad as modern 『haters’. These are people who write unpleasant things about someone on the internet, like this…

Example
I wish I had ignored the haters who criticised my acting career on my blog. It’s really knocked my confidence.

Feifei
Not nice! 還有一種 「hater」 經常在網絡上攻擊、辱罵他人。

Neil
Someone like this often criticises someone unfairly – or without good reason. It can be very discouraging. Don’t you just hate those kinds of people, Feifei?

Feifei
I do, but sometimes it’s best just to ignore it.

Neil
Yes. Anyway, Feifei, I know what I don’t hate – a nice cup of tea. Do you fancy making me one? Ah, you’re ignoring me now. I hate it when you do that!

Feifei
Bye, Neil!

Neil
Bye. Alright, I’ll put the kettle on.
