大家都知道Michael 这个美国学生正在学中文。他和中国学生李华约好每个星期
至少在一起活动一次。今天他们决定到一个公园去滑冰。李华会学到两个常用语:
loser 和to bug。

L: 今天的天气真好呀!正是运动的好天气。我已经好久都没有滑冰 了。
M: You're a very good skater.just keep falling down.
L: 学滑冰总是会摔跤的。多练习练习就好了。
M:know, butfeel like such a loser.keep getting passed by little kids. They laugh
at me.
L: 小孩肯定比我们滑得快,别怕他们笑话你。你刚才说你觉得自己 是什么?
Loser? 滑冰又不是比赛,怎么会输掉呢?
M:saidfeel like a loser,means thatfeel like a failure. It doesn't meanlost a
game.
L: 你是说loser 就是一个人做某件事总是做不好。嗯,我们在中文 里常说:"我
怎么老学不好,真是个笨蛋"。这跟loser 的意思 差不多吧?不过,Michael,我肯
定你在滑冰方面不是个笨蛋,你只 要多练习就行了。
M: Thanks for the encouragement, Li Hua. But I've always been kinda loser at
sports. Growing up,was always picked last for the baseball and soccer teams.
L: 原来你在体育方面从小就不行。不过,Michael,在其他方面你 一点也不笨。
M: What do you mean, Li Hua?
L: 这还不明白吗?女孩子都很喜欢你呀,你还有其他好多朋友呀。
M: You're right,do have a lotfriends. But if they could see how many timesfell
down today, I'm sure they would not want be friends with such a loser.
L: 得了吧,Michael,要说笨蛋,那天晚上我们见到的那个人才是呢。他自以为
挺帅,老是想去和女孩子搭讪,可是,谁都知道他是个 没出息的人,谁都不要和
他交朋友。Michael,我们能叫这种人 loser 吗?
M: Yeah, very good, Li Hua. That guy reallya loser. He never studies at all.think
he'scollege justparty.
L: 他从来不念书呀?Michael,你还滑不滑?
M:guess so...Just wait up for me,casefall down again. Okay, let's go!
(滑完冰以后)
L: Michael,运动一下真舒服。
M: Yeah, you had been bugging me about going skating for so long,guesswas
about time thatcame along with you.
L: 什么是bugging ? Bug 不是小虫子吗?
M: No, bugging meansbother or annoy someone about something.didn't mean it
in a serious way,was just kidding.
L: 噢,to bug 就是为了某件事去麻烦别人,让人讨厌。Michael, 你 再举一个例
子好吗?
M: Sure. You can say that somethingbugging you, such as an assignment that you
haven't been ablefinish or a problem that you cannot solve. You could also...
L: 等等,让我先弄清楚你说的。你是说,我没能完成的功课,或者解决不了的问
题都可以用to bug 这个动词。那就是说:"This assignmentbugging me",或者是:
"This problembugging me",对 不对?
M: Yes, you can also say that a habit someone has really bugs you.
L: 我知道,象Mary,她老是打断我说话,让我很烦,很讨厌。
M: You could say "It really bugs me when Mary interrupts methe middlea
sentence."can also sayreally bugs me when you trytell me whatdo.
L: 嗨,我告诉你该怎么做是为了你好。老实说,it bugs me that you never listen to
me.
M: It seems that you've learned howuse "loser" and "to bug". Let's go home.

李华今天学了一个名词"loser",指一个人老是不会做某件事;她还学了一个动词
"to bug",意思是为了一件事老是去麻烦别人,让人讨厌。这次这次[流行美语]就
学习到这里,我们下次再见。
