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。

Roy
And I’m Roy! I hear you’re going on holiday next week! I bet you’re really excited about a lovely holiday and not having to think about work for a whole week!

Feifei
Well, I’m going to the beach, but I’ll still be working – I’m going on a workation.

Roy
Oh, right. Well, I feel like I’ve been on a workation since March to be honest. I haven’t been to the office in months.

Feifei
你說的是 「work from home(居家辦公)」。我說的 「workation」 的意思是 「你可能去某個地方度假,比如海灘,但同時按照常規繼續工作」,也就是 「結合工作(work)和度假(vacation)的旅行假期」。

Roy
Ah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s a portmanteau, or combination of two words –’work’ and ‘vacation’. So, that means you’ll be working as normal then?

Feifei
Yes, of course. Which means that there will be no office parties while I’m away.

Roy
Hmm. Right, so I guess that means I should send an email to cancel the office Olympics while we listen to some examples.

Examples
She spent the day working from the hotel bar and at night she visited the local area. She really enjoyed her workation.

I’m going on workation next week to be closer to nature while I work. Hopefully the internet will be good.

My workation didn’t go as planned as it rained the whole time I was away. I didn’t manage to see or do anything fun.

你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們給大家介紹了新合成詞 「workation」 的意思和用法。「Workation」 由 「work(工作)」 和 「vacation(度假)」 組成,指 「結合度假和工作的假期」。

Roy
Yes, so you could go somewhere like a beach, skiing resort or tourist area while working. You can even go to another country on your workation if your company permits it.

Feifei
So, you were planning to hold the office Olympic Games while you thought I wasn’t working?

Roy
No, I was only joking. We would never hold any games or parties without you!

Feifei
Well, good – because I bring the fun by winning all the games! Right, I’m going to get ready to go on my workation – a week by the beach and I’ll need my sunglasses and swimwear. I can’t wait to go to Brighton beach!

Roy
You’re going to Brighton – in the south of the UK – in February? Haha! Well, good luck finding the Sun. You should probably take a coat on your workation.

Feifei
OK, Roy. Bye!

Roy
Bye!
