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 me, Rob. Hey, Feifei. I have a little challenge for you.

Feifei
Oh, good. I like a challenge.

Rob
Right. Can you name a bird that has bright feathers?

Feifei
Umm… A parrot?

Rob
No. It has big, colourful feathers that it sticks up when it’s showing off and trying to attract a mate.

Feifei
Oh, got it! A peacock. 孔雀。你是在说孔雀开屏吗?Why are you asking?

Rob
Well, it’s a clue for this Authentic Real English phrase. Can you think of an expression which describes someone showing off to attract attention?

Feifei
Yes, Rob. It’s ‘peacocking’ - I often use it to describe you!“Peacocking” 这个词很形象地借用 “peacock” 孔雀开屏的行为来描述一个人为了吸引别人的注意力或为了给人留下深刻的印象而 “像孔雀般地处处炫耀自己”。But, Rob, peacocking never impresses me!

Rob
Well, Feifei, you are hard to impress – but maybe these examples of ‘peacocking’ will…

Examples
Why does Dev have to wear that bright shirt and walk around the office talking and laughing loudly? It’s obvious that he’s peacocking, but to me, he’s just annoying.

When we first met, I was impressed by John’s flashy clothes and constant jokes. But he was obviously peacocking because now he just wears jeans and never says anything funny!

I thought my peacocking skills would work wonders on our blind date. Unfortunately, she told me I was just showing off, and I just needed to be myself. I don’t think I’ll be seeing her again.

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我和 Rob 正在教大家 “peacocking” 这个词的意思和用法。我们可以把一个极其注重仪表和穿戴的人称为 “peacock”,而把这类人为了吸引他人的注意力,趾高气昂、大肆炫耀的行为称为 “peacocking”。

Rob
Originally, it described an extreme and over-the-top way a man might dress and the arrogant way he behaved to attract a woman.

Feifei
Yes, I can see why you would have been good at that, Rob!

Rob
Women do it now too, Feifei. For example by bragging on WeChat about the amazing things they’ve done.

Feifei
是的,其实炫耀的不仅只是男性朋友们。现在似乎每个人都有炫耀的时候。

Rob
Well, you’d never find me peacocking, Feifei - I’m not the sort of person to show off. I hate to attract attention.

Feifei
What do you mean, Rob? You’re always the centre of attention.

Rob
Hmm… Thanks!

Feifei
Bye-bye!

Rob
Bye.
