大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Neil
… and me, Neil. We’ve got that posh office party to go to tonight – it’s a black-tie event.

Jiaying
Oh, yes – a black-tie event means we have to dress smartly.

Neil
Yep, but I wonder which of us will look the smartest?

Jiaying
Hmm, I’m sure Roy looks very smart in a suit.

Neil
Maybe… but what about me? Don’t you think I would scrub up well?

Jiaying
你是说 “好好地打扮一番”?用这个表达形容你是不是不太恰当?“Scrub up well” 表示 “费很大的工夫把自己装扮得光鲜夺目、仪表一流”。Neil,你有什么能上得了台面的衣服吗?

Neil
Of course I do – and so do the people in these examples…

Examples
He wears jeans most of the time, but he scrubbed up well for the party.

Sharon scrubs up well – did you see what she was wearing last night?

That’s an impressive suit – you can scrub up well when you want to!

Jiaying
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我们正在介绍非正式表达 “scrub up well”,意思是 “费很大的工夫把自己打扮得仪表堂堂”。Hey, Neil – you’ve changed, haven’t you?

Neil
How do I look?

Jiaying
Not bad.

Neil
But not ‘scrubbed up’.

Jiaying
Well, if you could polish your shoes, brush your hair…

Neil
… you mean make more effort?

Jiaying
Well, to scrub up well involves putting in lots of effort… like Roy does.

Neil
I get the message. See you for the party later.

Jiaying
Bye, Neil!

Neil
Bye.
