To have a soft spot 情有独钟

20190227095152263.jpg

内容简介

什么是 “soft spot 软肋”?菲菲说她知道 Rob 的 “soft spot” 是什么,不过经过一番对话后,菲菲发现 “soft spot” 和人的身体并没有什么关系,而是一种描述你对一件事或一个人的感觉的方式。听他们的对话,学习地道表达 “to have a soft spot for someone or something”。

Feifei
大家好,这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
Oh! And hello, I'm Rob.

Feifei
Rob,你应该知道边吃东西边说话是很不礼貌的吧?

Rob
Sorry, sorry! It’s just somebody left these doughnuts here and I had to eat them – I have a soft spot for doughnuts.

Feifei
你就不能等一等?

Rob
No, sorry, I can't. Oh, is that chocolate I can see in your bag? You couldn't spare a few chunks, could you? I have a soft spot for chocolate as well.

Feifei
我的巧克力才不分给你吃呢。But can I assume a 'soft spot' refers to your large and soft belly you have as a result of eating too many sweet things?

Rob
How dare you! Having a soft spot doesn’t mean having a fat belly – not that I have one anyway. If you have a soft spot for something, it means you have the feeling of really liking something or someone.

Feifei
Right. 原来,表达 “have a soft spot for someone or something” 的意思是 “十分喜爱某人或某物”。And it's quite a strong feeling.

Rob
It is. When you have a soft spot for someone it means you have a lot of affection for them. Is there anyone you have a soft spot for, Feifei?

Feifei
Hmm. At the moment, I just have a soft spot for some examples!

Examples
He always had a soft spot for the woman in accounts – and guess what? Now they're getting married!

She has a soft spot for designer shoes. Her cupboard is crammed with hundreds of pairs. Some of them she's never even worn!

She's got a soft spot for her English teacher and keeps buying him presents, and she’s always the first to turn up for his lessons.

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。这集节目中教给大家的地道表达是 “to have a soft spot for someone or something”,它用来指 “对某人或某物特别有好感、亲切感”。So Rob, you asked if I had a soft spot for someone and I do!

Rob
Oh, go on.

Feifei
He's tall and handsome…

Rob
Oh yes.

Feifei
A little beard…

Rob
Of course…

Feifei
And a natural performer.

Rob
I knew it! You only had to say, Feifei.

Feifei
Yes, it's the great actor, Scott Foley.

Rob
Oh, I see. You have a soft spot for him?

Feifei
I do. And how about you, Rob?

Rob
There's nobody – just doughnuts – soft, round, sweet and squidgy in the middle. What's not to like?

Feifei
Ah, just like you then!

Rob
Ooh, time to go, Feifei. Bye.

Feifei
Bye-bye.

单词量还是得加强,看不懂的感觉不大美好
