  • Hey, guys. What's up. Stefanie the English coach here from Englishfulltime.com.

    嗨!你們好。我是 Stefanie ,EnglishFullTime.com 網站裡的英語教練。

  • And, in this video we are going to talk about why idioms aren't nearly as

    在這個影片中,我們要來講為什麼俚語不是像你們

  • important as you think they are. Okay. So first, I just want to say that one of the

    想得那麼地重要。所以一開始我想先講的是,

  • most frequently asked questions that people ask me is, Stefanie, how can I

    別人最常問我的其中一個問題是: Stefanie ,我要怎麼樣才

  • learn more idioms, how can I improve my vocabulary by learning more idioms, or

    可以學到更多俚語、我要怎麼在學習俚語時同時增進我的英文字彙、或是

  • I'm struggling to remember all the different idioms that there are in English.

    我無法完全記住這些不同的英文俚語,

  • It's so hard. And, I'm over here kind of like why are you guys freaking

    這太困難了。不過當下我覺得,你們這些人怎麼會對俚語

  • out about idioms. And so, I decided, you know, I just need to make a video for

    這麼地執著,所以我決定拍攝一個影片,

  • once and for all to kind of just put this whole thing to rest. So, you guys no

    讓你們對學習俚語這件事情能夠平常心面對,所以你們大家

  • longer have to stress out about idioms. Okay. But, first I just want to say that

    不需要對俚語感到那麼的有壓力。第一件我想說的事情是,

  • several years ago, when I was teaching English online I had this one student

    幾年前我在線上教英文時,我遇到一個學生,

  • who I think was obsessed with learning idioms. And, every day she would come to

    我覺得她非常熱衷於學習俚語,她每天上課大概

  • class with literally like 20 new idioms in her vocabulary. And so, when she would

    都會先學會 20 個新俚語,然後在課程中

  • speak. It just sounded so unnatural, she would just be like today I feel like a

    運用。但聽起來不是很自然。像是她會說:今天我一大早

  • sack of potatoes because I woke up at the crack of dawn. But, that's because the

    就起床了,我覺得我提不起勁,但那是

  • apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And, I would just be like holy cow what what

    因為事出必有因囉!我一聽到她那樣說,就非常地驚訝,妳在

  • are you saying, why don't you just use normal words to say what you're trying

    說些什麼東西。妳為什麼不用一些比較常見的字彙來試著表達妳想要

  • to say. And, I think that the reason why people are so obsessed with this idea of

    說的話呢?另外我有想到為什麼大家都會那麼沉迷於

  • using idioms is because they know that native speakers use idioms and they want

    說俚語,因為他們知道母語者都會用這些俚語,他們也想要

  • to sound like a native speaker. But, I already made a video on how to sound

    聽起來像是位母語者。但之前我有錄製一個影片,教你們如何聽起來像是位

  • like a native speaker. And, that was not one of the tips that I gave. Okay. So,

    母語者講話,而學習俚語不是我建議的其中一個技巧。所以

  • first of all stop focusing so much on idioms because there's about like a

    最重要的一件事是:不要那麼執著在學習俚語,因為可能還有

  • hundred or, you know, maybe two hundred I don't know that are very common. Those

    一百個或是大概兩百個比較常見的俚語。這些

  • are the idioms that you want to know. The rest of the idioms are regional. Okay.

    俚語你們會想要知道,其他的俚語就比較地域性的。

  • Regional idioms that they use in specific places, specific areas, and

    地域性的俚語就是會在特地的地方或區域出現,

  • unless you're in those areas, you honestly don't need to use to use those

    除非你們在這些地方生活,要不然說真的,你們不需要學會用這些

  • idioms. There are idioms that they use in Australia and an Ireland

    俚語。這些俚語是在澳洲、愛爾蘭、或是英國

  • in the UK that I don't even know exist. And, I don't care about those idioms. I

    才會用到,甚至有些俚語我還沒看過,而且我會忽略這些俚語,我

  • feel like you know the space and my brain is precious. And, I do not want to

    想我不想要浪費我珍貴的腦容量。而且我不想要

  • occupy unnecessary or space. I do not want to occupy space with unnecessary

    這些沒必要的訊息佔據在我的腦中。我真的不想要記住這些

  • information that really really doesn't matter. So, learn the most common idioms

    真的真的不是很重要的訊息。所以學會幾個最常見的俚語,

  • and then stop worrying about it. Okay. And then, if you go travel to a place, pick up

    就不要再擔心自己是不是學太少俚語這件事了。另外如果你們要去一個國家旅遊時,可以學會

  • some idioms while you're there. Sure. Okay. But, be careful when you use idioms.

    幾個可到當地使用的俚語。不過你們用俚語的時候,要小心。

  • Because if you're using an idiom, that's extremely regional and specific to a

    因為當你們在用一個俚語的時候,那是一個非常區域性、特定

  • certain location. You know. The people you're speaking to

    的一個地方。你們與他人對話時,

  • might not understand what you're saying. And, the goal of speaking English should

    可能對方也不知道你們在講什麼,而且講英文的目的就是應該

  • be to have clear communication. Okay. So, just a quick example though or another

    要有個清楚的交流。來看一個簡單的例子,

  • quick example of why idioms aren't as important as you think they are. Um, one

    為什麼俚語不是像你們想得那麼地重要。我有一個

  • of my good friends. I don't know where she learned her vocabulary because we're

    要好的朋友,我不知道她怎麼學英文的,我們

  • from the same town. But, or the same you know region. But, she uses all kinds of

    在同一個鎮長大的,或是同一地區。但她用了很多

  • idioms that either I have never heard before or I just don't use. And, I

    我從來沒聽過或用過的俚語。所以有時候

  • sometimes when she talks I'm just kind of like I laugh in my head because I'm

    她在跟我講話的時候,我會忍不住地在腦海裡偷笑,因為我

  • like I can't believe she said that. It's not bad. That's just how she talks. That's

    很難相信她用的字。這不是件壞事,就只是她講話的方式。那是

  • natural to her, but I'm not gonna start using all the idioms she uses just

    她講話的習慣,不過我不會因此就用她說過

  • because she uses them. Okay. So, just because you hear a native speaker use a

    的全部俚語。所以不要聽到母語者用了某一個俚語後,你們就認為

  • certain idiom doesn't mean that you have to use that idiom. Okay. You want to make

    你們也可以用那個俚語。你們想要確定

  • sure that people understand you when you speak. So, don't go stringing a whole

    他人都能知道你們說的話。所以不要在一個句子中,

  • bunch of idioms together in one sentence. Nobody will understand you. You won't

    用一大堆的俚語。沒人會知道你們在說什麼。你們不會

  • sound like a native speaker. And, you'll just sound ridiculous. Okay. And, let me

    因此說話聽起來像是位母語者,你們只會聽起來有點好笑。另外我

  • think if there's anything else I can tell you guys about idioms. Okay. One last

    想想是不是還有關於俚語的事情要跟你們說。最後一件

  • thing just don't whatever you do just don't waste your time studying these

    事情是:就是不要浪費你們的時間來學習這些

  • things. Okay. There are. There's a lot more important stuff you could be studying.

    俚語。還有很多其他重要的事情你們可以學習。

  • And, I have seen students write long lists of vocabulary, long lists of idioms.

    我有看過幾個學生寫下了很多字彙和密密麻麻的俚語。

  • And, I'm just like who is teaching these antiquated methods of learning, like stop

    然後我就在想,誰還在教這些古老的學習方式,不要

  • stop with the list, stop with all of that. Okay. Pick up things as you go.

    再列出長長的清單了。在你們的學習過程中就邊記住。

  • Pick up words. Pick up phrases. Pick up vocabulary. Pick up idioms as you learn them.

    記住幾個單字、片語、和字彙,記住你們學到的俚語。

  • So, if you see an idiom in a TV show, and you don't know what it means. Go look

    所以如果你們在電視節目中看到一個不懂的俚語,就去

  • it up in the dictionary. If you really like it then incorporate it into your

    查字典。如果你們真的喜歡這個俚語,就把它列入你們的字彙中,

  • vocabulary or and practice it. But, what I tend to do when I learn Spanish or when

    並且練習用它來造句。但當我在學西班牙語時或是

  • I learn the new phrase in Spanish is I don't incorporate it right away into my

    我學一個新西班牙片語的時候,我不會馬上把它列入

  • vocabulary. I wait till I've heard something about 20 times in context.

    在我的字彙中,我會等到我已經在文本中看到它 20 次,或是

  • Sometimes I wait till I've heard something a hundred times in context

    有時候甚至我會看到它在文本中幾百次後,

  • before I actually start using it. Because then you learn how to use it as native

    才會實際地開始用它,因為你們之後會知道如何像是母語者一樣

  • speakers use it. Okay. Because if not you just might throw in idioms where they

    運用它。如果不這樣做的話,你們可能會把這些俚語用在

  • don't belong and that it's not gonna make you sound more like a native

    不適當的地方,並且不會讓你們聽起來像是位

  • speaker. It's actually gonna make you sound like you don't know what you're

    母語者,而且實際上也會讓別人覺得你們也不知道自己

  • talking about. Okay. So, I hope you guys find this video

    在講些什麼。我希望你們大家都會覺得這個影片是

  • helpful. Feel free to let me know in the comments what you think about this idea.

  • I hope you guys don't waste all your time, you know, studying idioms. When

    我希望你們大家不要浪費全部的時間來學習俚語,你們

    可能還是有很多其他重要的英文知識要學習。
