Result! 好事儿!

The script of this programme 本节目台词

Diarmuid: Hi Jean. You look very pleased with yourself today.

Jean: Hi Diarmuid. I am in a very good mood today.

Diarmuid: Why's that then?

Jean: Well, I've had some good news. 今天我在公司里得到了正式提升,还同时有了加薪呢。

Diarmuid: Really, what's happened?

Jean: I've been given a promotion and a pay rise.

Result! 好事儿!

Result! These students are jumping for joy!

Diarmuid: Result!

Jean: Sorry?

Diarmuid: I said… result!

Jean: Result?

Diarmuid: That's right, result. R.E.S.U.L.T. That's our Authentic Real English word of the day. Result. We can use it when we get some good news.

Jean: Result 这个单词我倒是知道,不过这个词翻译过来的意思一般是“结果”或者数学里的“答案”。 But why do we use this when we get good news? A result could be good or bad.

Diarmuid: Very true Jean. A result could be a good result or a bad result, that's why we need to use intonation when we use this word in this way.

Jean: OK 就是说,关键是我们在说这个词的时候一定要用语调来表达我们对所发生事情的欣喜感。 So you need to say result with a particular intonation?

Diarmuid: Yes, you need to say it in such a way that you sound excited and happy. Let's hear some examples:

Examples

A: I just found out I've passed all my exams!

B: Result!

A: I know. I'm so happy!

A: Guess what. That cute guy I like just asked me out for a date.

B: Really? Result! When are you going out?

A: Friday. We're going to the cinema.

Jean: I wonder where this phrase comes from, Diarmuid.

Diarmuid: I'm not 100% sure but I think it could be from football.

Jean: Football?

Diarmuid: Yes. When a football team wins a game the fans and players will sometimes describe the win as a result.

Jean: OK, so does the game of football ever give us other phrases?

Diarmuid: Yes. Another way to say result is to say back of the net!

Jean: OK, back of the net, 那就是进球的意思,那这个说法也是表达我们取得某种成功后的欣喜心情喽。

Diarmuid: Exactly. You've got it.

Jean: 好,那我们今天的节目也要接近尾声了,如果大家希望听到看到更多的英语学习节目和内容,就请登陆我们的网站 www.bbcukchina.com.
