Wang Fei: 大家好,歡迎收聽《道地英語》節目。我是王飛。

 

William: Hello, I'm William Kremer.

 

Wang Fei: William, this could be my last ever Authentic Real English!

 

William: What? Are you pregnant?

 

Wang Fei: William, 男人怎麼會懷孕?你今天怎麼會問這麼蠢的問題?

 

William: Oh yes, yes, yes, men can't get pregnant! So why might this be your last ever Authentic Real English, Wang Fei?

 

Wang Fei: 是這樣的,我有了一個非常好的做生意的主意,我想回北京開一家英語計程車公司。所有的司機都會說英語,乘客可以在乘車去旅館的路上和司機用英語聊天,當然他們要多花一點兒錢。

What do you think? It's a great idea isn't it?

 

William: I think... it's got legs.

 

Wang Fei: What?

 

William: I think your idea has legs.

 

Wang Fei: Oh no, William, it's got wheels. It's a taxi company; it's not a walking company!

William: No, no. You misunderstand me, Wang Fei. If someone says that an idea has legs that means that he or she thinks it's a good idea; it could work. Let's hear another example.

 

Example

Let's meet with the team next week. And if we come up with an idea that's got legs we should be prepared to run with it.  

 

William: So in that example we heard where this phrase might have come from.

             If you run with an idea, you give it more time and thought and maybe money.

 

Wang Fei: To run with an idea 意思是花費更多時間、想法和金錢在上面。我們再聽一遍剛才的例句。

 

Example

Let's meet with the team next week. And if we come up with an idea that's got legs we should be prepared to run with it.

 

William: So, your English-speaking taxi idea has legs, Wang Fei. So let's run with it for a minute.

 

Wang Fei: Yes, let's do it!

 

William: So where are you going to get your taxi drivers from? Are you going to teach Beijing taxi drivers to speak really good English or are you going to teach foreign English teachers to drive in China?

 

Wang Fei: Well, that's a good question...

 

William: And how much are you going to pay these drivers?

 

Wang Fei: Er...

 

William: And how much are you going to charge your customers?

 

Wang Fei: Well... 看來關於這個商業計畫我需要和你好好談一談!我們必須先結束今天的節目了。

Wang Fei: Bye!
