内容简介

在这集《地道英语(精品课)》节目中,Rob 说他要是有足够的钱,就会以“at the drop of a hat”的速度去澳大利亚旅行。一如既往,考虑周到的菲菲主动把自己的帽子借给了Rob 用,不过“at the drop of a hat”和“帽子”有关系吗?听节目,学习一个形容做事毫不犹豫的表达。

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。

Rob:And I'm Rob. So Feifei, have you got any holiday plans?

Feifei:Yes, I have actually. 我计划去澳大利亚三周。

Rob:Australia – wonderful. If I had the money, I'd go there at the drop of a hat.

Feifei:What? At the drop of a hat?“帽子掉了就去”?Here, take my hat.

Rob:Your hat?

Feifei:Yes, you said you'd go at the drop of a hat, so here's my hat, now drop it – and then you can go.

Rob:I wish it was that simple. When I said at the drop of a hat I meant immediately. If I had enough money, I would go to Australia immediately – without delay.

Feifei:I see. 原来,在英语里,我们可以用短语 at the drop of a hat 来表示“毫不犹豫地,不加思索地”,也就是在做事的时候毫不迟疑。So in other words, you would go to Australia without hesitation.

Rob:Exactly. Let's hear some more examples.

Examples

My husband just can't stop spending. He buys clothes at the drop of a hat!

If I knew what to do next, I'd quit my job at the drop of a hat. Until then, I'll stay where I am.

My wife's expecting a baby so I might have to rush to the hospital at the drop of a hat.

Feifei:如果我们以“at the drop of a hat”的速度做一个决定,那么所突出表达的意思是“我们毫不犹豫地快速地做出了这个决定”。Well Rob, I'll send you a postcard when I get to Australia but it might take a while.

Rob:Why's that?

Feifei:Well, I'm going skiing in France first.

Rob:Oh, well that's somewhere where you really don't want to drop your hat – it'll be freezing!

Feifei:So you don't fancy coming with me then?

Rob:Skiing? No, that's something I wouldn't do at the drop of a hat. I'll have a think about it. But have fun.

Feifei:Thanks!

Both

Bye!
