Rob
Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. I’m Rob. I’m live here with the hero of the day, Feifei.

Feifei
Thanks, Rob. Hello everyone.

Rob
Now, let’s talk about that fantastic performance. BBC Learning English FC were two goals down, and then you came along and scored three times in the last ten minutes. How do you feel?

Feifei
這都是團隊一起努力的結果,我只是趕上了進球的好時機。

Rob
A very modest answer, but the crowd are going wild about you. Just listen! It’s fair to say, Feifei. You played a blinder!

Feifei
我其實只是在做我的工作,不過作為一名 BBC 英語教學 FC 球隊的球員,我想給大家說兩句。

Rob
Of course, go ahead.

Feifei
我想講講你剛用到的表達 “to play a blinder”。這個說法多用於描述體育比賽中某人的表現特別精彩,有時也可以用於描述人們在日常生活和工作中全面展示技能,表現極佳。

Rob
Yes, not only did you play a blinder in the football game today. Feifei, you played a blinder with that definition!

Feifei
Thank you, Rob. I’d like to add a little more about the word blinder. 假設你在觀賞一場絢麗光彩的、令人眼花繚亂的表演。表演光芒四射,無比絢麗刺眼,以至於你可能什麼都看不見了 “go blind”。

Rob
Hmm, like looking at the Sun. Thankfully, it’s just an expression. If you’re watching or listening to this show, we’re sure your eyesight won’t be affected! Let’s have some more examples.

Examples
Theresa played a blinder today in the final. What a simply amazing performance on the tennis court.

Did you see Mexico beating Germany in the World Cup? Mexican forward Hirving Lozano played an absolute blinder!

Darren, what an awesome presentation! You played a blinder. I’m pretty sure we’ve just won some new clients.

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》。我們正在介紹 “play a blinder” 的意思和用法。

Rob
There we are. Please notice that in the last example, we weren’t talking about sport. You can also play a blinder in a work or business context, or anything that involves skill and performance.

Feifei
Well, Rob, I think we’ve both played a blinder today.

Rob    
Thank you, thank you. Which reminds me… Hang on a second…Yes, let’s bring back the cheering crowd!     

Feifei
I love it. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have people cheering us just like that in real life?

Rob
And wouldn’t it be fantastic if, in real life, you were actually good at football!

Feifei
Hey, come on! We both know I played a blinder – at least in the programme!

Rob
OK.

Both
Bye.
