How to (BBC) 笔记



  1. I think
  2. My view is that :稍微正式
  3. In my opinion

如果坚信某个观点,也可以使用 the fact is 来表达观点:

  1. The fact is, it is disastrous what is happening at the moment.
  2. The fact is, it was a terrible situation.

在有些讨论中,对方没有注意到你的观点,需要设法吸引对方注意力(bring them back to focus on what you’re trying to say):

  1. The point is
  2. You’re missing the point.:有时候听起来会显得非常不礼貌,注意场合
  3. Look:可以再次把对方的注意力吸引到你的谈话内容上来,但听起来会有厌烦的感觉
    1. Look, this is nothing to do with you, so leave me alone.


  1. I can assure you that:“我打包票”是一个非常正式的表达(a fairly formal phrase),可以在想要在某事情上说服某人的时候用到它。
    1. I can assure you that we’ll do everything we can to help him.
    2. I can assure you that this is the best quality we have.



I haven’t seen you for ages!


  • What’ve you been up to?(一个非正式短语,意思是 what have you been doing?)
  • What are you up to?
  • What are you doing around here.


  • this and that:各种各样的事情
  • Just the usual:就和平常一样


  • This house is gorgeous.


  • How was the traffic?


  • It’s a lovely day, today.


  • Your hair looks great!


  • just a mintue
  • hang on
  • just a second


  • Just a second
  • I really really take exception to that

在句子中用到 I take exception to that(我不同意;持异议)暗示了说话人对听到的话极度生气。

  • take that back
  • I think you should take back what you just said


  • I’m sorry. I’m just, I’m not going to let you talk to me like that.

这里的 sorry 是在暗示非常反对对方的话,她有不同的观点。


  • Oh, no!
  • Oh, dear!
  • I can’t believe it.
  • Why does this always happen!
  • For goodness sake! (For heaven’s sake!)
  • Bother!
  • Damn! (只能用于非正式场合,而且很有可能得罪人)




  • **To begin with **preheat to oven to 220ºC.
    • 首先
  • While the oven’s heating prepare the scones.
    • 这一步是在上一步进行的同时而进行的。
  • Put the flour and butter in a bowl and use your fingertips to rub in to the butter, so that the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  • When this is done stir in the sugar and salt.
    • 也可改成主动结构:When you have done this
  • Next use a knife to mix in the milk a little bit at a time.
  • When it is all mixed in, use your hands to knead everything together into a soft dough.
  • After this put the dough on to a floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll the dough. The dough needs to be about 2cm thick.
  • Once you’ve done this the a round cutter to cut out circles and put them on a greased baking sheet.
    • 将操作步骤衔接起来的方法
  • Then put them in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • Finally when they are golden brown take the scones off the baking sheet and leave them to cool or eat them straight away with butter and jam or clotted cream.
    • 做最后一件事,但是要满足条件(they are golden brown)
