内容简介

“他/她为什么还没有回复我的信息?” 这句话你说过吗?当我们发出一条消息后,看到系统提示对方已经读了,却没有回复,这时你会不会立即浮想联翩,开始猜疑对方不回复的理由?本期节目教你用一个有趣的表达来描述这种情况。

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

Roy
…and me, Roy!

Feifei
在这期节目中,我们要教给大家的地道英语表达可以用来形容某人读了你发给他们的信息,但是没有回复的行为。哎,这倒是提醒了我,Roy,你昨天收到我发给你的消息了吗?

Roy
Ooh… yes, I did. I read it and then I totally forgot to answer you. Was it something important?

Feifei
你竟然忘了回复我的信息!I can’t believe it! I got left on read!

Roy
What’s the colour ‘red’ got to do with the fact I forgot to reply? Red’s actually my favourite colour.

Feifei
Not red the colour, but ‘read’ as in the past of ‘read’.

Roy
Ah, got you. Sorry, I didn’t mean to leave you on read. It’s just I was in the middle of something … and then I got distracted ….and then…

Feifei
OK. Roy. I understand! What was so important that you couldn’t reply?

Roy
I was eating a really nice banana, and then I just forgot… sorry.

Feifei
That’s a terrible excuse. 幸好我们是朋友,不然我还以为你不理了我呢。Anyway, let’s listen to these examples…

Examples
I can’t believe I was left on read. I sent him a message and I can see he’s looked at it, but he hasn’t replied!

My partner always leaves me on read. They get really distracted and then don’t message me back.

You shouldn’t assume the worst if you get left on read. If someone reads your message and doesn’t reply, they might be really busy and planning to respond later.

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语”。在这期节目里,我们给大家讲解了 “left on read” 的意思和用法。如果一个人读了一条信息,但没有回复,这时,我们就可以用 “left on read”。So, were you really eating a banana and that’s why you left me on read?

Roy
Yeah, sorry. Well, I was also playing video games which might have been the main reason.

Feifei
Haha – I knew it! Well, the next time I want to offer you free tickets to the ‘Rob’s Rolling Biscuits’ rock concert, hopefully you’ll reply and not just leave me on read!

Roy
What!? Free tickets?! Let me read the message again! Oh, can I still have the tickets?

Feifei
Sorry, it’s too late now. I gave them to Neil. He didn’t leave me on read. Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye.
