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,我们要学习用一个大家都熟悉的单词来形容事物 “非常棒”。Speaking of which, have you seen that new blockbuster that everyone’s talking about, ‘Unicorns Eat Bananas in the Stars’?

Roy
What kind of title is that?! That film sounds awful!

Feifei
It’s not! ‘Unicorns Eat Bananas in the Stars’ is fire!

Roy
Fire? The unicorns that eat bananas in the stars are on fire?! What is this film about?

Feifei
No, Roy! Don’t be silly, the banana-eating unicorns aren’t on fire! That would be ridiculous. 我刚才说 “the film is fire”。我的意思是这部电影非常火!The film is fire!

Roy
Ah, of course! We use fire to describe something that is really good! For example, your T-shirt is fire, Feifei!

Feifei
Thanks, Roy! I bought it this week! It’s official merchandise for the film! Anyway, let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
Have you checked out my new phone? It’s fire. It can do so many cool things!

I went to a concert to see ‘Rob’s Rolling Biscuits’ last night. Their new song is fire.

That new series everyone is talking about is fire! It’s got dragons, zombies and vampires in it. I love it!

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我们在一起学习用 “fire” 这个词描述事物 “非常好,特别棒”,就好比我们汉语里说的 “火”。

Roy
I might have to go tonight and watch the film at the cinema.

Feifei
You definitely should. It’s straight fire! 我们有时也可以在 “fire” 前面加上单词 “straight”——“straight fire”。这里 “straight” 就相当于 “very”。

Roy
So I probably should have said your t-shirt is straight fire, then.

Feifei
Only if that’s what you really think! You haven’t even seen the film yet!

Roy
What about my T-shirt? Do you think it’s fire?

Feifei
Honestly, no. It looks like it needs to be put in a fire. You should just burn it. The film on your T-shirt is not fire! That film is terrible.

Roy
Um… maybe I’ll buy a new one today.

Feifei
Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye!
