Hello and welcome to The English We Speak. I’m Feifei.
大家好,欢迎来到BBC地道英语,我是菲菲。
And I’m Rob. Feifei, feeling hungry?
我是罗伯。菲菲,感觉饿了吗?
Rob, they smell amazing!
罗伯,这闻起来真好吃!
Almost there. We’re having a special treat today – waffles!
差不多了,我们今天要请大家吃一种特别的东西——华夫饼!
Rob is making waffles: those lovely, crispy little cakes with raised squares on the surface.

Absolutely! My favourite. But what are we going to put on them?
正是!我的最爱呀。不过上面要涂些什么呢?
Oh that’s simple: strawberries and syrup. What about you?
哦,这就简单了:草莓和糖浆呀。你呢?
OK, I’m not so sure. I mean, I used to always love them with honey and bananas. But they do taste amazing with melted chocolate. Or… with cream. You know, I recently tried one with peanut butter: not a good experience. I guess strawberries would be worth trying... Or mango. But only if the mangoes are fresh…
好的。不过我不确定。我的意思是,我以前一般都喜欢配蜂蜜和香蕉,不过它们和融化的巧克力配起来超级赞!或者……搭配奶油。你知道,我最近吃奶油配种花生黄油——不过不太好吃。我猜草莓可以试一试……或者芒果,不过芒果需要新鲜的……
Rob?

Yes?
嗯?

Well, I must admit that sometimes people have said I do talk rather a lot, especially when it’s about travel or languages… which reminds me I really should book my next holiday… I’ve been considering Croatia, though I…
好吧,我承认有的时候大家会说我唠叨得太多了,特别是关于旅行和语言的话题……这让我想起了我该预定下个假期的票了……我之前考虑去克罗地亚,虽然我……
