The script of this programme 本节目台词
Wang Fei: 大家好，欢迎收听 BBC 为大家制作的《地道英语》节目。我是王飞。
Diarmuid: And me, Diarmuid.
Wang Fei: So what are we going to talk about today Diarmuid?
Diarmuid: Well, I'd like to tell you about a concert I went to last night.
Wang Fei: A concert 演唱会！Diarmuid 会去看谁的演唱会呢？ So who was performing at the concert, Diarmuid?
Diarmuid: I don't want to say her name Wang Fei, because I didn't enjoy the show. All I will say is that she was a very famous American singer.
Wang Fei: Why didn't you like the concert by this mysterious singer then?
Diarmuid: I'm afraid to say that she wasn't really singing live.
Wang Fei: 你是说她没有现场演唱吗？So what was she doing?
Diarmuid: She was lip-syncing.
Wang Fei: Lip-syncing?
Diarmuid: Yes, lip-syncing. L.I.P. S.Y.N.C.I.N.G. Lip-syncing.
Wang Fei: Ah yes. Lip-syncing. 就是演唱者假装在台上唱歌，但实际上，是在播放事先录好的录音，也就是对口型的假唱。So she wasn't really singing then?
Diarmuid: No, she was just jumping around the stage pretending to sing with a lot of other musicians and dancers.
Wang Fei: But didn't you just enjoy the show and the spectacle?
Diarmuid: Not really. When I go to a concert I want to hear the singer actually perform the songs. I can listen to the CD at home any time.
Wang Fei: Oh dear. What a pity.
A: My favourite band were on TV last night but they just lip-synced the songs.
B: Oh I hate it when they do that.
A: It must be hard for stars to sing and do complicated dance routines at the same time.
B: I suppose that's why so many of them lip-sync these days.
Wang Fei: In the example we heard that lots of performers lip-sync when they are on television. 因为他们一边唱一边跳，实在是太难了。
Diarmuid: That's true. I suppose that is alright because TV studios might not have the right equipment for a live performance.
Wang Fei: So you think it's ok to lip-sync on TV but not in concert?
Diarmuid: Yes. If I buy a ticket to the concert, I want to hear the real singer.
Wang Fei: So it was an expensive concert then?
Diarmuid: I don't want to even say how much I paid for that ticket!
Wang Fei: Poor you, Diarmuid. I hope your next concert is a better experience.
Diarmuid: Me too. Well, that's all for today listeners. I hope you enjoyed the programme and I can assure you we really were speaking here.
