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 I'm…Rob.

Feifei
Err…sorry, Rob. What did you say?

Rob
I said I'm…Rob.

Feifei
Right, and why have you brought a donkey into the studio?

Rob
To help with today's authentic English phrase, which is 'donkey's years'.

Feifei
原来 Rob 拉了一头驴来是为了教我们一个英语表达“donkey's years”。

Rob
The phrase comes from rhyming slang – ‘donkey's years’ rhymes with 'donkey's ears', yes?

Feifei
Yes.“Donkey's years”和“donkey's ears”听上去是押韵的。

Rob
Now, donkey’s ears are long and when we say we haven't done something for 'donkey's years' we mean we haven't done something for a long time.

Feifei
原来是这样。“Donkey’s ears 驴的耳朵”和“donkey’s years 驴的年份”听起来很押韵;那么大家都知道驴的耳朵比较长,所以在英语口语里,人们用“donkey’s years”来形容“很长一段时间”。

Rob
Let's hear the phrase in action.

Examples
I'm so bored; I've been doing this job for donkey's years!

I haven't driven a car for donkey's years; I hope I can remember what to do.

We've got to go to Lily's party; I haven't seen her for donkey's years so it'll be great to catch up.

Feifei
我们可以用“donkey’s years”来特别强调“很久,很长一段时间没有做一件事情”。So Rob, I could say ‘we haven't been to the cinema for donkey's years?’

Rob
Yes and you'd be correct. We haven't. Shall we go now?

Feifei
OK. But does your donkey have to come, too?

Rob
Oh look, he's very excited!

Feifei
Yuk! I can see…What's that on the floor?

Rob
Oh, yes. Perhaps we'll leave him shall we, clear that up later. Perhaps he could present some more programmes while we're away.

Feifei
Ha! That is donkey work. Bye!

Rob
Bye-bye.
