Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
And hello, I’m Rob.

Feifei
Rob, would you mind wiping those crumbs from your mouth?

Rob
Oh, sorry!

Feifei
Do you know, it’s very strange. I made a cake a last night and brought it into work today to share with you.

Rob
Oh, that’s very kind…

Feifei
Yes, but it seems to have vanished into thin air.

Rob
Well, you’re a magician – you’ve made a cake disappear?

Feifei
No, Rob. I mean it’s mysteriously and suddenly disappeared. 短语 “vanish into thin air” 的意思是一个物体或人突然神秘地消失得无影无踪,好比烟消云散。You haven’t seen the cake, have you, Rob?

Rob
Er, no, Feifei – no sign of your ‘disappearing’ cake.

Feifei
OK, well, let’s hear some examples of this phrase – let’s hope they haven’t suddenly disappeared!

Examples
I can’t remember where I’ve parked the car! I think it’s vanished into thin air.

Have you seen the boss? Someone important needs to talk to him but I can’t find him anywhere.  It’s like he’s vanished into thin air!

Has anyone seen my glasses? They’ve vanished into thin air!

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我们正在教给大家的表达是 “vanish into thin air”。它可以描述一个人或物体突然间神秘地消失得无影无踪。So any sign of my cake?

Rob
Err, no, no.

Feifei
Very odd. I put it on my desk this morning and went to make a cup of coffee and when I returned, it had gone. 

Dan
Great cake, Rob! Thanks for sharing it. I hope you’ll be baking again soon! Ha, see ya!

Feifei
Rob!

Rob
Sorry, Feifei. It was so tempting, so delicious, so I thought…

Feifei
So you thought you’d eat it?

Rob
Well, it helped us demonstrate today’s phrase.

Feifei
There’s just one thing I want to vanish into thin air.

Rob
And what’s that?

Feifei
You, Rob! Now I’m off to bake a cake - for me.

Rob
See ya! Oh, she’s gone.
