歡迎收聽 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。大家好,我是佳瑩。

Roy
… and me, Roy. Hey, Jiaying! I saw your latest photo on social media – it’s great!

Jiaying
Yes, I’m the CEO of social media!

Roy
Oh, wow! I knew you were important, but I didn’t realise that you controlled all of social media! Maybe you could help me by making my videos go viral.

Jiaying
No, Roy! 「The CEO of」 在我剛剛提到的那句話裡並不是 「首席執行官」 的意思,而是用來表達 「某人做某事非常出色,或者在某方面十分優秀」。So, if you’re a really good dancer, you could say that you’re the CEO of dancing.

Roy
I’m not a very good dancer – but I would like to improve my photos on social media – I don’t get many likes!

Jiaying
Well, seeing as I’m the CEO of photography, I’ll have a look. 要不,我來給你發佈的所有照片都點個 「贊」,怎麼樣?

Roy
Would you really do that!? Oh, Thanks!

Jiaying
Sure, what are friends for? And now, let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
He’s such an amazing singer – he is the CEO of singing!

She’s always saying that she’s the CEO of things – it sounds like she’s really bragging!

I wish I was as good as her at painting. She’s the CEO of art!

Jiaying
你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們介紹了表達 「the CEO of」 的意思,我們用它來形容 「某人非常擅長做某事,或者在某個方面十分優秀」。

Roy
Yes, and literally the title of CEO stands for Chief Executive Officer, which is effectively the boss of a company. You can also use the expression 『the boss of’ instead of 『the CEO of’.

Jiaying
沒錯,我們也可以用 「the boss of」 來表達和 「the CEO of」 同樣的意思。So, I could say that I’m the boss of social media. You can also say that something is 『boss’. So, for example, your photos are boss!

Roy
Really? Did you check out my photos? Did you like the one in which I’m dressed as a parrot?

Jiaying
I didn’t see that one… But I liked all your photos. 我最喜歡的是你給一群貓咪教英語的那張照片。That photo is boss!

Roy
Hang on! That’s Neil’s photo – not mine! You liked all of his photos!

Jiaying
Well, I’m sure your photos are really creative too! Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye.
