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。

Rob
I’m Rob. Hello!

Feifei
So, Rob, another year over.

Rob
Yes, goodbye 2019. It’s been a good year, but it’s time for a clear-up.

Feifei
Rob’s tidying up! Why, Rob?

Rob
Well, there’s so much junk lying around – let’s clear out the old stuff. I’d like to start the New Year with a tidy office.

Feifei
Oh, right – we can say 『out with the old, in with the new’.

Rob
Out with the old, in with the new. Yeah, a good expression, Feifei. You mean leave old things or old ideas behind and start fresh with new things or ideas.

Feifei
I do. 在新年期間,我們通常用 「out with the old, in with the new」 來表示 「舊的不去,新的不來」,新事物總會替代舊事物。

Rob
Well, I had better get on with getting rid of old things… while we hear some examples of this phrase in action.

Examples
It’s time for me to get rid of my old boots and buy a new pair. Out with the old, in with the new!

The tech company released their new range last week. I’ve already bought something. It’s out with the old chunky phone and in with the new lightweight touchscreen one.

Last year I spent too much time eating cake. But now for 2020, I’m going to join a gym and get fit. It’s out with the old body and in with the new one!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。在2019年最後一期 「地道英語」 節目中,我們用短語 「out with the old, in with the new」 送走2019,迎接2020。So what new things or ideas shall we have for 2020, Rob?

Rob
Hmm, well, for a new thing, I was thinking about some flowers in the studio.

Feifei
Nice.

Rob
And for my new idea, I thought I would start introducing the programme every week – it’s always been you, Feifei!

Feifei
Excuse me, Rob – I’ve always introduced the programme. It’s ladies first! Sorry, I’m not changing that. 不過,我倒是在考慮另一個變化。

Rob
Oh, yes? What’s that?

Feifei
A new presenter. As we say, out with old – you, Rob – and in with the new – hi, Dan.

Dan
Hey, Feifei!

Rob
Oh, hi, Dan.

Feifei
Just joking! Happy New Year, Rob!

Rob
Um… you too.
