欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。大家好,我是冯菲菲。

Rob
… and hello, it’s me, Rob.

Feifei
Hey, Rob. How are your plans going to get fit?

Rob
Oh, Feifei, they are a disaster!

Feifei
Oh, no! What’s gone wrong?

Rob
Well, I went for a five-mile run last night, but I gave up after just a mile. I was exhausted. And then I went for a ten-mile bike ride, but only got to the end of my street. I give up – getting fit is not fun!

Feifei
Don’t give up, Rob! You need to take things one step at a time.

Rob
You mean walk – don’t run?

Feifei
Not exactly – just improve your fitness gradually, in stages. 我们用 “one step at a time” 来表示做事要一步一步地,扎扎实实地,循序渐进地。所以,你开始健身也需要一步一步地来,不能着急!Let’s listen to some examples of people using ‘one step at a time’.

Examples
I know the instructions look confusing, but take them one step at a time and they should make sense.

If you want your cake making to be a success, you need to follow the instructions one step at a time.

Don’t panic! I’ve written a step-by-step guide on how to turn the heating on, so you should be fine.

这里是BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。在这期节目中,我们教给大家的这个表达简单实用。“One step at a time” 的意思就是 “一步一步地”,它常用来告诉他人做事要慢慢地、仔细地,一步一步来。So, Rob, to get fit, you need a plan – improve your fitness in stages.

Rob
OK, so where do I begin?

Feifei
Well, don’t run before you can walk. So, do lots of walking and then a little bit of running.

Rob
Hmm… And after that?

Feifei
The next stage is to run a bit further and then walk a little. Set yourself a goal like from your couch to running a 5k!

Rob
Oh, did you say ‘couch’? Oh, great! I’m off.

Feifei
Where are you going?

Rob
Well, I’m going to run to my couch, put my feet up, and eat lots of biscuits. Bye.

Feifei
Bye, Rob!
