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。

Rob
And hello, I’m Rob. Feifei, could we hurry up, please?

Feifei
我們為什麼要快點?你趕時間嗎?

Rob
Well, I need to get to the shops to buy something in the sales.

Feifei
So, you want to snap up a bargain?

Rob
Err, well, I don’t want to snap anything, just grab a bargain.

Feifei
That’s what I mean! 表達 「snap up」 的意思是 「搶購」,用來描述 「某人快速並充滿熱情地搶購某物」。比如:你可以 「搶購便宜貨 snap up a bargain」;「搶購音樂會的門票 snap up tickets for a concert」;甚至可以 「迅速搶到手一個心儀的工作機會 snap up the offer of an amazing job」。

Rob
Well, today I want to snap up a new smartphone that’s on sale for half price!

Feifei
Don’t go yet. We have some examples to listen to.

Examples
Good news! The company snapped me up as soon as they read my CV.

I managed to snap up these half-price shoes in the sales. Do you like them?

I couldn’t get a ticket to the gig because they were all snapped up as soon as they went on sale.

Feifei
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們舉例講解了如何在日常生活中使用 「snap up」。在通常情況下,「snap up」 用來描述 「某人快速並充滿熱情地搶購某物,從而能立即獲取這個物品」。So, Rob, is the smartphone you want to snap up any good?

Rob
Oh, yes! Long battery life, great image and sound quality, and it’s a great colour.

Feifei
A bit like this one?

Rob
Yes! Just like that one. Where did you get it from?

Feifei
I snapped it up in the sales on the way to the office. Sorry, Rob, I think it was the last one.

Rob
Oh, Feifei. That’s not fair!

Feifei
If you want something quickly, you have to snap to it. 「Snap to it」 的意思是 「快速,趕快」。Rob, 想買便宜貨,就要迅速下手!

Rob
Oh, well, the phone wasn’t that good anyway – and now I’ve saved my money, I can go and snap up something else in the sales.

Feifei
Good. So, we’re both happy! Bye.

Rob
Bye-bye!
