原味人文风情:Hello and welcome back to English with Lucy. Today we have another episode of my fabulous"Five Common British Expressions." Now, before we get started, make sure you connect with me on all my social media, which is right here. And I've got my Instagram account. Obviously, you can subscribe to my YouTube. You can also like me on Facebook. And for my Chinese followers, um, I have my Weibo account as well.

哈喽,欢迎回到“跟露西一起学英文”。今天,我们将讲我最爱的另一集“五种常见的英式英文用语”。在我们开始之前,你一定要在社交媒体上联系我喔,就在这边。我也有Instagram账号。当然,你也可以在YouTube上订阅我或者在脸书上按我赞。对我的中国粉丝们来说,我也有微博账号喔。
Okay, so our first expression is "a piece of cake." And this is very similar to "easy-peasy, lemon squeezy," which we've discussed in a previous video. And basically, it means very easy. So I might come out of a particularly easy exam saying, "That exam was a piece of cake." That exam was really easy.
好了,我们的第一个用语是“a piece of cake”。它跟“easy-peasy, lemon squeezy”的意思很类似,我们在上一个视频中讨论过。它基本上是“很简单”的意思。所以我可能会在考完一个很简单的考试后说:“That exam was a piece of cake.”那考试很简单。

So, number two, "Break a leg!" actually looks really rather cruel, but I promise you it's positive. And "Break a leg!" means "Good luck!" So before a race, before a job interview, before a test,instead of saying "Good luck!," I might say "Break a leg!" Do really well.

第二个“Break a leg!”听起来好像挺残忍的,但我保证它很积极。“Break a leg!”代表“祝你好运”!所以在比赛、工作面试或考试前,比起说“Good luck”,我可能会说“Break a leg!”,好好发挥吧。
So since we're talking about legs, let's bring arms into the equation as well. Number three is "It cost an arm and a leg." And this basically means something was really expensive. If I say, "My bag cost an arm and a leg," I mean it cost a lot of money.
既然我们说了跟腿有关的用语,那么也一起讨论一下手臂吧。第三个用语是“It cost an arm and a leg”。它基本上就是指东西很昂贵。如果我说:“My bag cost an arm and a leg”,意思就是它花了很多钱。

Now, the next one isn't particularly nice. It is "to pop one's clogs." And this actually means "to die," but we use it quite affectionately. It's like a nice way of saying that someone's died. So, "I'm going to a funeral this Sunday. My neighbor's popped his clogs." It's a way of saying "My neighbor's died," but we don't want to say the "death" word, so we say "They've popped their clogs."

下一个用语并不是特别好,它是“to pop one's clogs”,意思其实就是指“死掉”,但我们把它用得比较有感情一点儿。这是一种表示别人过世比较好的说法。所以,“I'm going to a funeral this Sunday. My neighbor's popped his clogs.”就是说“我邻居死掉了”的一种方式,但因为我们不想讲出死这个字,所以我们说“They've popped their clogs(他们过世了)”。
And then we have number five, "to call it a day."And this means "to end a task." So, for example,"I'm feeling a bit tired. I think I'll call it a day." And that means "I think I'll stop here. Let's finish." So, well, as we come to number five,I think I'll call it a day now! Bye!
接下来第五个用语“to call it a day”,意思就是“结束一个任务”。例如:“I'm feeling a bit tired. I think I'll call it a day.”,意思就是“我想我就在这边先停止,我们做个结束吧。”所以,我们已经到第五个用语了,我想我们现在就结束吧,再见!
Thank you so much for watching this episode of "Five Common British Expressions." I hope you liked it, and I hope you learned something. Make sure you connect with all my social media, as I said before, and have a very lovely week. Bye!
