Jo: You're listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. I'm Jo.

Helen: And I'm Helen. 地道英语中介绍的一些英语表达, 你可能在英语课堂上学不到,但是它们在生活中却会经常出现。那Jo, 今天的新表达是什么呢?

Jo: Well today, we're talking about WAGS.

Helen: 这不是一个动词吗?摇尾巴 – WAGS – like a dog 'WAGS' his tail?

Jo: Well that is one explanation of 'WAGS' but today's WAGS is an abbreviation.

Helen: 今天的词不一样,是个缩写?

Jo: Wives and girlfriends.

Helen: 谁的太太和女朋友啊?

Jo: Footballers wives and girlfriends. Let me explain. These days certain footballers are famous and have quite glamorous lifestyles.

Helen: 不错,有些顶级足球明星不光名气特别响,他们的生活也非常令人羡慕。

Jo: And a lot of them have glamorous wives and girlfriends. When the players play the wives and girlfriends often sit and watch the players. Some of the wives and girlfriends are famous.

Helen: 像 Victoria Beckham 曾经是辣妹之一,而英格兰国家队的 Ashley Cole 的太太 Cheryl 她是 'Girls Alound' 的领唱。 很多球星的女朋友都是模特儿。

Jo: When England played in the World Cup in 2006 a lot of the newspapers in the UK reported on the wives and girlfriends of the players.

Helen: 所以后来报纸就把足球明星们的太太和女朋友们缩写为 WAGS。

Insert

A: I'm really fed up of seeing WAGS on the TV – you see more of them than you do the footballers.

A: I love Victoria Beckham – and she's so lucky to be married to David Beckham!

B: I know, I'd love to be a WAG – all that money and oh to be that beautiful!

Helen: So Jo would you like to be a WAG?

Jo: Well I would like the money and I would love to be that pretty – but I'm not sure I'd want to be a WAG and be in the newspapers all the time.

Anyway that's all from BBC Learning English for today. You can learn more Real English words and expressions if you log onto our website www.bbcchina.com.cn and go to the Learning English section. We’ll see you soon.
