The script of this programme 本节目台词

Finn: Hello Feifei. Welcome back to the office.

Feifei: Hi Finn. Back to work!

Finn: How was your holiday? You look great.

Feifei: Fantastic, thanks! 整个假期我天天都躺在沙滩上休息…

Finn: Nice...

Feifei: Yeah, just relaxing, swimming, reading novels, eating fresh seafood, and my favourite new thing: playing beach volleyball!

Finn: Cool - you must have had a ball!

Feifei: Of course we had a ball. We were playing volleyball! You can't play volleyball without... a ball.

Finn: You're right, you do need a ball - but you see I meant...

They're having a ball!

Feifei: I know what you meant, just kidding! To 'have a ball' 这个短语的意思是尽情享乐,无限狂欢。

Finn: Yes, well did you? Have a good time?

Feifei: We had... a ball!

Finn: Listen to these other people who had... a ball.

  • We went to my sister's wedding at the weekend. Everyone had a ball - it was so much fun.
  • I had a ball at the party. So many of my friends were there and the music was great.

Feifei: Of course we don't always use it to talk about things in the past.

Finn: Yes, listen out for people 'having a ball', like this one:

  • I'm having a ball in my new job. It's so much better than my old one.

Feifei: Or you can combine with 'will' when talking about the future.

  • A: I'm not sure about joining the singing class.
  • B: Of course you should join - you'll have a ball!

Finn: Anyway Feifei, it's good to have you back.

Feifei: Good to be back.

Finn: We're having a ball.

Feifei: I know, it's fun to be in the studio again.

Finn: No, we're really having a ball.

Feifei: Eh?

Finn: Yes, BBC Learning English is holding a ball - a formal party where people come and dance - tonight.

Feifei: Oh, that kind of ball 舞会 - our ball! I'd completely forgotten! I'm playing volleyball tonight.

Finn: Well, I'm sure you'll have a ball whatever you do!

Feifei: Haha - yes, well you have a ball, at the ball!

Finn: Very good. For more English phrases, log on to Bye.

Feifei: See ya.
