Helen: OK. Today's new word is 'peak' – P.E.A.K. – peak.

Helen: Well, peak is not a new word in English and it has several meanings.

Zoë: 嗯,那快来给我们仔细讲讲吧

Zoë: 这个PEAK本来的意思是指山的顶峰,但是它还有其它的意思。So Helen, what's the new meaning of peak?

Helen: The highest point, when something is at its best, most successful or strongest.

Zoë: 明白了。 Peak 指的是最高点,也就是达到了最好,最成功,或者最强的一种状态。

Helen: Well, you could say, "Sales reached a peak of 20,000 in May last year."

Zoë: 这句话的意思是说 去年5月的销售量最高到达了20000。

Insert

A: I wanted to go to Spain in August but it's so expensive.

B: Well, it is the peak season, so it's the most expensive time. Why not go later in the year?

C: Excuse me, can I use your telephone?

D: Well, would you mind waiting till later? It's peak rate now and calls are expensive. Use it after 6 – it's much cheaper then.

Zoë: 你喜欢旅游吗?Helen.

Helen: Yes, but I try not to travel at busy times.

Zoë: Why?

Helen: It's peak season and you have to pay more.

Zoë: 我知道你的意思了,你是说在旅游的高峰季节,车票会比平时贵很多。

Helen: And I won't call you in the morning from my mobile phone.

Zoë: 那是为什么呢?

Helen: It's the peak time and it's much more expensive.

Zoë: 没错,手机的话费在早上的高峰时间也比平时贵,所以你就不会在这个时间给我打电话。

Helen: No I won't. Anyway, let's recap. Peak means the point when something is highest, most successful or strongest.
