John: Hello, thisReal English from BBC Learning English, I’m John.

Jean: Hi. 大家好,我董征。欢迎收听Real English《地道英语》节目!

John: In Real English, we look at wordsphrases that you might not findyour dictionary.

Jean: 和汉语样,英语里也着非常多成语和俗话,所以要想能听得懂英国人日常说话聊天,就定要来学学这些他们常用通俗词语。 那么请问John 我们今天要学新词什么呢?

John: Today’s new word‘upgrade’ – U.P.G.R.A.D.E. – upgrade.

Jean: Upgrade. 能给我们解释下它意思吗?

John: Well,main meaningupgrade meansmakemachine, orcomputerexample, more powerfulefficient.

Jean: Upgrade 就让电脑增强性能和速度措施:升级。那能给我们举例子讲讲吗,John?

John: No problem. If your computer was oldslow, you could buynew one or get an upgrade.

Jean:see.

John: Then you could say, ‘My computer has been upgraded’.

Jean: 我知道,Upgrade“升级”本身动词,而且它在被动式语态时候就表示已经被升级意思。那John你能给我们说说,upgrade这词还什么其他用法吗?

John: Well,can also meangive youbetter seata plane,a better rooma hotel. You might,example,-and if you are very lucky, get upgraded from economy classa planebusiness or first class.

Jean: 原来upgrade用到坐飞机时候就“升舱”,如果住酒店就换到更高级房间,总之都调换到更高意思。

John: That’s right.

Insert

A: How was your flight?

B: Great! We got upgradedfirst classspentwhole way back drinking free Champagne.

A: My computer’s really slow.think I’ll buynew one.

B: That’ll be expensive. Why don’t you getupgraded? That’ll be much cheaper.

Jean: So are you happy with your computer, John?

John: No –needgetupgraded.

Jean: Isexpensivegetupgraded?

John: No. Gettingupgraded will be cheaper than buyingnew one.

Jean:see.

John: And then hopefullynext timeflywill be upgraded too!

Jean: That would be nice.

John: Yes, It would.would likefly first class.

,让我们再来回顾下, – upgrade – 就电脑升级意思。用到其它地方还坐飞机升舱,住酒店升级房间意思。
