Jo: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Jo.
Jean: And I’m Jean.

Jo: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that you might not find in your English text book.

Jean: 学习英式英语非常重要的一部分就是要学习他们日常使用的英语口语,而且这些英语的通俗说法并不是经常能在书本上学到的。那Jo,我们今天要学的英语口语词是什么呢?

Jo: Today’s new word is ‘motor’ – M.O.T.O.R. – motor.

Jean: Motor. 是什么意思呢?

Jo: It’s quite simple. Motor is an informal word for car.

Jean: 原来motor就是汽车car的一种口语叫法。那你能给我们举个例子吗?

Jo: Of course. If your friend bought a new car, you might say ‘ Can I see your new motor?’

Jean: 就是说“我能看看你的新车吗”?

Jo: Yes. Or you could say ‘I like your motor’ meaning I like your car.

Jean: 我喜欢你的汽车

A: Why are you saving money?

B: I want to buy a new motor. My old one has too many problems.

Jean: Which motors do you like Jo?

Jo: Well, I don’t know much about cars.

Jean: I like big, American motors.

Jo: Yes, American motors are generally big.

Jean : And would you like one?

Jo: An American motor? Only if you buy one for me, Jean! Anyway, let’s recap, motor is an informal word for car.

Jean: Well, it looks like we don’t have any more time. 好了我们的节目时间又快到了。今天我们学到的新口语词是motor,就是汽车的意思.

Jo: Yes, that’s it. You’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. Join us again soon for more up-to-the-minute Real English. Bye.

Jean: See you next time.
