Feifei
Hi! Err, Neil?

Neil
Err… yes, Feifei?

Feifei
你这是在干什么呢?

Neil
Err, just… standing here. Umm… actually, I can’t remember why I came in here.

Feifei
你一副心不在焉的样子!We’re in the studio, and we’re about to record an episode of Authentic Real English.

Neil
Of course we are, sorry. I had a brain fade there.

Feifei
Anyway – let’s get on with the programme. 这集节目里要教给大家的表达就是 “brain fade”!Imagine that.

Neil
Haha, well – let’s explain it. ‘Brain fade’ is a slang term meaning a short period when you can't think clearly or remember things.

Feifei
For example: when you walk into a room and forget why you went there.

Neil
That’s a brain fade. Never happens to me!

Feifei
And how about this: when you can’t remember where you put your keys?

Neil
Ah yes, I know that one. Now you mention it, where are they?

Feifei
Haha. Well, “brain fade” 是一个俚语表达。我们用它来描述一个人不能清楚地思考或记不住事情的短暂时间,也就是所谓的 “大脑空白”。在使用它的时候,我们常说 “have a brain fade”。下面,咱们来听几个包含 “brain fade” 的例句。

Examples
I saw an old colleague on the street last week. Completely forgot her name! A serious case of brain fade. Really embarrassing.

I’m sure I did terribly in the exam. I had a major brain fade.

I hate doing job interviews. It’s not that the questions are difficult, I just get brain fade as soon as I walk into the room. Can’t even remember my own name!

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。这集节目中教给大家一个俚语表达 —— “brain fade”。它用来描述一个人在短时间内大脑一片空白。So let’s continue with the programme. Neil. Neil?

Neil
Good. Yeah. Umm… Give me a second.

Feifei
What now?

Neil
I took off my glasses while we were listening to those examples. You know, I can’t see them anywhere.

Feifei
Neil.

Neil
Yes?

Feifei
They’re on your head.

Neil
Ah, that’s a relief. Another brain fade, I’m afraid. I think I just need a good night’s sleep.

Feifei
You do that! That’s our phrase – brain fade. Let’s hope we made it easy to remember!

Neil
Bye.

Feifei
Bye!
