Sinking Feeling 不祥预感
The script of this programme 本节目台词
Li: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. I'm Li.
Neil: And I'm Neil. Li, let me tell you about this strange dream I had yesterday… we weren't here. We were somewhere else, in another country…
(Sound of dreamy music)
Neil: We were lucky to find these cheap tickets and fly here to the United States, weren't we? This is a wonderful place, Li...
Li: Yes it is, 多好美的地方啊…
Neil: …where we found a boat and decided to sail on this river!
Li: 你真能干 Neil! 你竟然搞到一只船！
Neil: Blue sky, blue water… Don't you feel at one with nature, Li?
Li: 啊! 绝对同大自然融入了一体. But we've been sailing for a while now and… 哎，Neil 我们已经飘游了很长时间了，对吧？Where are we, Neil?
Neil: I'm not so sure. What I can say is that… this boat is rocking quite a lot now, isn't it?
Li: Yes, 我们的船开始摇晃起来。But it must be normal…
Neil: I must confess I'm not a strong swimmer…
Li: 会不会游泳有什么关系，别想那些，Neil, just admire the view.
Neil: But I have a sinking feeling!
Li: A sinking feeling Neil? What's going on? Are your feet wet? Can you see any water coming into the boat?
Neil: No, there's no water in the boat. To have a sinking feeling is what you say in English when you realise something bad is happening or about to happen.
Li: So a sinking feeling 这个短语的意思是当一个人预感到一种不好的事情即将发生，一种不祥的预感，right?
Neil: Yes, that's the idea.
Woman: The meal in this restaurant was very tasty but I have a sinking feeling that I've forgotten my wallet at home and I don't have money to pay the bill!
Man 2: Oh the main player in the team has just got a red card! I've a sinking feeling that my team is going to lose this match!
Li: So, what is this sinking feeling that you have, Neil? If it's not the boat, what is it?
Neil: Well, while we were admiring the view a few minutes ago I saw a sign over there on the bank of the river that says: Niagara Falls. I've heard this name somewhere and I don't think it is good but I can't remember why…
Li: What? Niagara Falls! 尼亚加拉大瀑布! Neil, 你知道吗，那瀑布高达50米呢!
Neil: Yes, now I remember! I saw it in a movie! I have a sinking feeling! Grab this life jacket, Li.
Li: Thank you, 救生衣，快快，快穿上. Now I have a sinking feeling too!
Neil: Here we go! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Li: Neil, Neil….ahhh!
(Sound of alarm clock)
Neil: And that's when I woke up, Li.
Li: That's good, Neil. But now I have a sinking feeling.
Neil: Why is that?
Li: 你没完没了地给我讲你的梦，结果我们现在把火车错过了，上班要迟到了，快点吧，咱们赶紧打的吧! Bye!
