Neil: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I'm Neil.

Helen: And I'm Helen. Neil, 咱们今天学什么新词儿呀?

Neil: Today's new word is 'guts'. G.U.T.S. – guts.

Helen: Guts, 给我们讲讲是什么意思吧,Neil。

Neil: Well, 'guts' is an informal slang word meaning courage. If you have guts, you have courage.

Helen: 哦,明白了。Guts 就是勇气的意思,而且是个俚语。

Neil: Yes, for example, you might say "You need to have guts to be a policeman."

Helen: 没错,你需要勇气去做一名警察。

Neil: Yes. 'Guts' is informal, but you could use it in most situations.

Helen: 哦,guts 是出现在非正式场合的,但是在大部分的情况下,我们都可以用它。

Neil: That's right.

Helen: Neil, 你觉得在什么情况下需要勇气呢?

Neil: Yes, how about asking someone for a date!

Helen: 想邀请某人和自己约会?I don't have the guts for that!

Insert

A: I really like her, but I'm too embarrassed to ask her to come to the cinema with me.

B: Oh come on. Where are your guts? Just go and ask her!

A: I quit my job and took a year walking round Europe.

B: That was brave. I wouldn't have the guts for that.

Helen: Do you think you have guts, Neil?

Neil: Well, sometimes. Other times no!

Helen: 那是为什么呢?

Neil: Well, I wouldn't have the guts to do a parachute jump.

Helen: 跳伞。

Neil: You need a lot of guts.

Helen: 我觉得也是。

Neil: But I have the guts to travel alone.

Helen: 单身旅行, 那也需要很多勇气啊。

Neil: Well, I think I agree with you there. Anyway, let's recap – 'guts' is an informal word for courage.

Helen: 对了, Guts 是用在非正式场合的,意思是勇气。Neil,咱们的时间又要到了。

Neil: Yes we must. You've been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. Join us again soon for more up-to-the-minute Real English. Bye.
