大家好!歡迎收聽由 BBC英語教學製作的 「地道英語」 節目。 我是佳瑩。

Roy
… and me, Roy. I can’t believe you beat me at that video game!

Jiaying
可不是嗎,剛剛你在玩遊戲的時候犯了很多小錯誤。所以,我贏了是很正常的!I’m a pro and you’re a noob!

Roy
A what? Anubis? Did you just call me an Egyptian god?

Jiaying
Not Anubis, Roy – I called you a noob. 名詞 「noob – n o o b」 的意思是 「菜鳥,新手」,指 「對某件事情不熟悉且缺乏經驗的人」。

Roy
But I’m not a noob – I’ve been playing it for years. It’s my favourite game!

Jiaying
Oh… then you’re just really bad at it! 你還得再練幾次才能提高水平啊!

Roy
Maybe we could play again? I have no idea how you found the dragon so early. You didn’t watch a gamer’s tips and tricks video, did you?

Jiaying
Well, maybe just one video – it’s good to research what you’re going to play. Let’s have another game while we listen to these examples.

Examples
He ended up sending out the wrong information to the clients. He’s such a noob!

I can’t believe I called her the wrong name! I’m such a noob.

Four years ago, I made a film. It was terrible – I was such a noob! So, I studied how to make films at university.

你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們給大家介紹了名詞 「noob」 的含義和用法,它指的是 「剛開始接觸某件事情或在某一方面缺乏經驗的菜鳥、新手」。你也可以用名詞 「newbie – n e w b i e」 來表達同樣的意思。I can’t believe you beat me at that game second time round!

Roy
Well, like I said – I wasn’t a newbie. I’ve been playing it for years. I went easy on you first time because I thought you were a noob!

Jiaying
好吧!對了,在談論和電子遊戲有關的話題時,名詞 「noob」 很常用,那我們在聊其它話題的時候是不是也可以使用這個詞呢?

Roy
Yes, for example, your first day at work. Huh…Do you remember when I started?

Jiaying
Yes, you were such a noob! 那個時候,你才剛來不久,還是個新人。You forgot everyone’s names and got lost in the building!

Roy
Yeah… I was a bit of a disaster.

Jiaying
That’s OK – you didn’t know what you were doing.

Roy
So, do you want to play another game?

Jiaying
No, thanks. I prefer playing against newbies so I can win. Bye, Roy!

Roy
Bye.
