Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
And hello, I’m Rob!

Feifei
Rob,你看上去一副自鸣得意的样子。

Rob
I am. Look – biscuits!

Feifei
Rob 因为饼干而很兴奋!Hmm, are biscuits really that exciting?

Rob
Well, it’s not the actually the biscuits. It’s the price. I got five pence off the packet – a great discount, hey?

Feifei
饼干打折,折后省了 5 便士,相当于 4 毛多钱?Big deal!

Rob
Well, yes, it is a big deal, Feifei – a big, big deal. By my calculations, it’s a five per cent discount. So every bite tastes better because it’s cheaper! Oh, hold on. You’re being sarcastic, aren’t you?

Feifei
I am. It’s a sarcastic phrase. 如果我们以讽刺的口气对他人说 “Big deal!”,那么实际上是在告诉对方 “没什么大不了!没什么了不起!”。So sorry, Rob. I’m not impressed!

Rob
It takes a lot to impress you, Feifei. How about some impressive examples?

Examples
A: Have you heard? We’re getting a one percent pay rise!
B: Big deal!

My brother said he completed the marathon in four hours. Big deal – I did it in three!

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。在这集节目里,我们教给大家的地道口语表达是 “Big deal!”。我们通常使用 “Big deal!” 来告诉别人,我们没有觉得对方所说或所做的事情有什么了不起的。当然,我们也可以用 “no big deal 没关系” 来表示一件事情的结果没有想像的那么严重。来听一个例句。

Example
Failing your driving test is no big deal. It happens to people all the time. You can try again next month.

Rob
So that’s ‘no big deal’, but I think saving five pence off a packet of biscuits is a great deal. You know what people say – every penny counts.

Feifei
Rob, you’re making a big deal about this – that’s another use of ‘big deal’. 如果一个人 “make a big deal about something”,意思就是说此人 “为一件事情大惊小怪,过分激动”。You are making a big fuss, Rob.

Rob
A big fuss? I bought 100 packets, Feifei, saving five pounds – that’s quite a deal, don’t you think?

Feifei
100 packets! That’s a bit extreme. You must really love biscuits. What sort are they?

Rob
Chocolate digestives.

Feifei
巧克力消化饼干!My favourite! OK then, Rob, open them up and let’s start munching.

Rob
Ha! I can see you are impressed with my ‘big deal’. Bye.

Feifei
Bye.
