內容簡介

「他/她為什麼還沒有回覆我的信息?」 這句話你說過嗎?當我們發出一條消息後,看到系統提示對方已經讀了,卻沒有回覆,這時你會不會立即浮想聯翩,開始猜疑對方不回覆的理由?本期節目教你用一個有趣的表達來描述這種情況。

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 me, Roy!

Feifei
在這期節目中,我們要教給大家的地道英語表達可以用來形容某人讀了你發給他們的信息,但是沒有回覆的行為。哎,這倒是提醒了我,Roy,你昨天收到我發給你的消息了嗎?

Roy
Ooh… yes, I did. I read it and then I totally forgot to answer you. Was it something important?

Feifei
你竟然忘了回覆我的信息!I can’t believe it! I got left on read!

Roy
What’s the colour 『red’ got to do with the fact I forgot to reply? Red’s actually my favourite colour.

Feifei
Not red the colour, but 『read’ as in the past of 『read’.

Roy
Ah, got you. Sorry, I didn’t mean to leave you on read. It’s just I was in the middle of something … and then I got distracted ….and then…

Feifei
OK. Roy. I understand! What was so important that you couldn’t reply?

Roy
I was eating a really nice banana, and then I just forgot… sorry.

Feifei
That’s a terrible excuse. 幸好我們是朋友,不然我還以為你不理了我呢。Anyway, let’s listen to these examples…

Examples
I can’t believe I was left on read. I sent him a message and I can see he’s looked at it, but he hasn’t replied!

My partner always leaves me on read. They get really distracted and then don’t message me back.

You shouldn’t assume the worst if you get left on read. If someone reads your message and doesn’t reply, they might be really busy and planning to respond later.

Feifei
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」。在這期節目裡,我們給大家講解了 「left on read」 的意思和用法。如果一個人讀了一條信息,但沒有回覆,這時,我們就可以用 「left on read」。So, were you really eating a banana and that’s why you left me on read?

Roy
Yeah, sorry. Well, I was also playing video games which might have been the main reason.

Feifei
Haha – I knew it! Well, the next time I want to offer you free tickets to the 『Rob’s Rolling Biscuits’ rock concert, hopefully you’ll reply and not just leave me on read!

Roy
What!? Free tickets?! Let me read the message again! Oh, can I still have the tickets?

Feifei
Sorry, it’s too late now. I gave them to Neil. He didn’t leave me on read. Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye.
