Feifei
歡迎收聽 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。大家好,我是馮菲菲。

Rob
Oh! Umm… yes! And me… Rob.

Feifei
Rob, could we have your attention, please?

Rob
Sorry, I’m just snacking.

Feifei
你知道不能在錄音間裡吃東西。

Rob
But I’m not eating anything. I’m snacking on some very funny cat videos. Sorry, they’re really short. I won’t be long… Oh, what, Feifei? Why the angry face?

Feifei
Because we are here to talk about an authentic English phrase.

Rob
OK. OK. Well, here’s one for you – snackable. It describes short online articles, videos and other content that are quick and easy to read or watch.

「Snackable」 這個詞來自 「snack」 快餐,零食。它現在被人們用來描述互聯網上的簡短的文章、視頻和其它容易閱讀或者觀看的內容,類似快餐,讓人們很快就能完整地接受。And you are demonstrating it very well, Rob! I guess it’s like eating a snack – quick and easy?

Rob
Yes. Very snackable. Just like these examples…

Examples
Because my free time is short, it’s good to find some snackable videos I can watch on my smartphone while I wait for the bus.

The short city guides I found on the internet are very snackable and great for planning my trip around Africa.

These days, videos are often less than a minute long so that they’re snackable and appeal to a younger audience.

這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。在這集節目中,我們一起學習 「snackable」 這個詞在互聯網時代的意思和用法。「Snackable」 現在多用來指簡短、容易被人們理解和消化的概念和內容,也就是人們俗稱的 「快餐式內容」。

Rob
… and the great thing about snackable content, Feifei, is you can do it whilst doing other things – like presenting this programme.

Feifei
你是說你可以同時做幾件事情 「multitask」。Well, I can do that too! Now, where’s my smartphone?

Rob
Err… Feifei, what are you doing?

Feifei
Reading a short but interesting article about working with annoying presenters.

Rob
You’re not snacking on that. You’re feasting on it. Now, come on and help me finish the programme.

Feifei
OK. Thanks for joining us. And we hope you found this programme snackable.

Rob
Bye. Now do you want to see these really funny kittens doing tricks?
