地道英语口语学习:Cashpoint自动取款机

Helen: Hello, this is Real English from BBC Learning English, I’m Helen.
9999d.com_【官方首页】-大佬彩票Zoë: 还有我,刘佳。欢迎收听地道英语

Helen: In Real English, we look at words and phrases that you might not find in your dictionary.

Zoë: 英语也和中文一样,会不断产生一些新用法,要想时刻的跟上潮流,说一口流行地道的英语,最好的方法,就是和我们的地道英语一起来学习这些新鲜词汇和习惯表达。

Helen: There’s no better way, Zoë.

Zoë: So what have you got for us today Helen?

Helen: Today’s a little bit different because we have two phrases to describe the same thing.

Zoë: Sounds interesting. What is it?

Helen: Well, today’s first word is cashpoint. C.A.S.H.P.O.I.N.T.

Zoë: 是把cash和point放在一起了吗?

Helen: Exactly – cash and point.

Zoë: 那什么是a cashpoint?

Helen: A cashpoint is a machine outside or near a bank which allows you to take money from your account.

Zoë: 哦,明白了。A cashpoint 就是一台自动取款机。

Helen: Exactly, put your card in, enter your secret number, and you can take out money.

Insert

A: Oh, I haven’t got any money on me.

B: Don’t worry. We can go to a cashpoint. There are lots of cashpoints on the High Street.

Zoë: Now Helen, didn’t you say that we had two phrases today?

Helen: Well remembered, Zoë. In the UK we have another slang name for a cashpoint. We call it a hole in the wall. Hole. In. The. Wall.

Zoë: Hole in the wall. 墙里的一个洞?这也说的是自动取款机吗?

Helen: Yes, but many people call a cashpoint a hole in the wall because they are usually built into the outer wall of a bank.

Zoë: 好了,让我们来复习一下,自动取款机在英语里有两个表达,一个是cashpoint,或者说hole in the wall.

Helen: Well, it’s time to go. See you next time for more Real English…

Zoë: See you next time.
