Feifei
欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。大家好,我是冯菲菲。

Roy
And me, Roy! Have you seen Rob’s new video on social media?

Feifei
Yes, it’s amazing! He has charm and style. He just has…

Roy
Ooof!

Feifei
Yes! Oomph! Rob has oomph and charm – not as much as me, of course, but he has some! Wow, Roy! For once, you actually got the correct word! Oomph!

Roy
I didn’t say ‘oomph’. I said ‘ooof’! I was complaining because I hurt my back earlier putting your cases in your car for you to go on your workation.

Feifei
Well, one can never be too prepared when going to the beach. Besides, I need lots of different outfits for when I take pictures. My photos have to have real…

Roy
‘Oomph’! Yes, I get it. Your photos need to have energy and be exciting.

Feifei
Exactly! Well, let’s talk more about my oomph right after these examples.

Examples
The business owner showed real oomph in her presentation when she was pitching the idea.

I really like the way Eric speaks – he has real energy and oomph.

The dancer showed real oomph in his performance – an energy I haven’t seen in a long time!

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。以上,我们听到了一些可以使用 “oomph” 的场景例句。在日常生活中,我们用 “oomph” 来形容 “充满活力、热情四射的人” 或 “动力强劲的事物”。

Roy
Some people argue that it is important to have real oomph when making presentations. I’m really good at talking to a room full of people, which means I must have real oomph!

Feifei
充满活力,魅力四射的人是我!I am the one with the oomph! I could sell anything to anyone.

Roy
Well, if I bought what you were selling, I could resell it for double the price – that’s how much oomph I’ve got!

Feifei
No, Roy. You don’t have oomph. You have a puppy-like charm. It’s OK to be envious of my oomph!

Roy
Puppy-like? I don’t chew slippers or chase sticks! I have oomph! Energy! Excitement! People have told me that!

Feifei
And who said that?

Roy
Rob. But ironically, he said it when he hurt his back helping me with your cases.

Feifei
Well, I think we all know what he really said! Bye, Roy!

Roy
Bye.
