  • In this English lesson, I wanted to help you learn the English term, elbow grease.

    今天的英語教室我要來教你們學習這個英文術語「費勁」。

  • Now, this is your elbow, and grease is a lubricant that you put on machinery so that when metal moves against metal, it's nice and slippery.

    這是你的手肘,潤滑劑是一種潤滑油,當金屬產生摩擦時,你可以加在機器上,就會變得很滑順。

  • But elbow grease, the term elbow grease simply means hard work that you do by hand.

    但「費勁」這個詞是代表親手做出的努力。

  • Maybe you've bought an old car and it's a little bit rusty, and you wanna kind of sand all the rust out with sandpaper and paint it.

    或許你買了一台有點生鏽的老車,你想要用砂紙磨掉那些鏽斑再上色。

  • You could say, "Oh, it just needs a little bit of elbow grease."

    你可以說「這只需要費一點勁。」

  • Uh, maybe you've bought something that needs to be fixed up.

    或許你買了某個需要修理的東西。

  • Maybe you bought an old machine from someone, and it just needs a new belt or a new pulley or a little bit of electrical work.

    你從某人那買了一台舊機器,它只需要一條新的皮帶、新的滑輪或一些電能就好。

  • You could say, "It just needs a little bit of elbow grease, and it will be working again."

    你可以說「這只需要費一點勁就能重新啟動。」

  • So, again, there's no such thing as grease that you put on your elbows.

    所以這不是把潤滑劑放在手肘上的意思。

  • It's simply a term that means to work hard on something, usually with your hands.

    這是一個代表用你的雙手去做出努力的術語。

  • The other term I wanted to teach you today is the term, elbow room.

    另一個我要教的術語是「活動空間」。

  • So, elbow room is simply the amount of room that you have around you.

    活動空間指的是你周圍有多少空間。

  • We almost always use this in the negative.

    我們通常會用在否定句裡。

  • We say things like, "Oh, I was on an airplane the other day, and it was really squeezed; there wasn't very much elbow room."

    我們會說「我那天搭飛機時的座位超擠的,沒有很多活動空間。」

  • Or, "I went to the mall to do some shopping and there were so many people there, there was not... there wasn't hardly any elbow room."

    「我去商城買東西,但人實在是太多了,幾乎沒有任何活動的空間。」

  • So, elbow room is simply the room that you have around you.

    活動空間指的是你周圍有多少空間。

  • I guess because you can't move your elbows, you don't have a lot of elbow room.

    我猜這是因為你不能揮動你的手肘,才會沒有太多活動空間。

  • So, to review, elbow grease is simply hard work.

    複習一下,elbow grease 是費勁的意思。

  • Um, if you just work hard on some things, you can get them working again, or they can just do better than what they're doing before with just a little bit of elbow grease.

    如果你在某件事上付出努力,想讓它重新運轉或變得比以前更好的話,只需要費一點勁就夠了。

  • We even use this for cleaning.

    我們甚至可以用在清理東西上。

  • If your dishes are really dirty, with a little bit of elbow grease, you can get them clean again.

    如果碗盤真的很髒,只要費一點勁,你就可以讓它們變乾淨。

  • With a little bit of hard, physical labor.

    需要一點努力跟體力活。

  • And elbow room is simply the amount of room you have around you, usually used in the negative.

    Elbow room 是你周圍有多少空間的意思,通常使用在否定句。

  • If you wonder why it seems like I'm speaking fast, it started raining, for some reason, so, I will try to slow down.

    如果你好奇為什麼我講那麼快,是因為不知怎的開始下雨了。所以我會試著慢下來。

  • Hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video; is that too slow?

    來看看上則影片的一段留言,這樣會太慢嗎?

  • This comment is from Andres Padrón, and the comment is:

    這則留言是 Andres Padrón的,他說:

  • "Thank you, Mr. Bob, I like the introduction, 'that's upside down, isn't it?'"

    「謝謝你, Mr. Bob,我很喜歡你的介紹,「那是」上下顛倒的,對吧?」

  • Yeah, in the previous lesson, I had my little paper upside down.

    在上則影片中,我把我的字條拿成上下顛倒了。

  • "I was wondering, what happens at the farm when the winter arrives?"

    「我很好奇農場在冬天來時會變得怎麼樣?」

  • "Does the winter stop the growing of all kinds of flowers and wheat?"

    「冬天會使全部的花和小麥停止生長嗎?」

  • "Or is there still something that the farm can produce in the heavy Canadian winter?"

    「農場仍會在加拿大的寒冬中產出農作物嗎?」

  • And my response is, "Winter is a time to relax and watch the snow fly on the farm. It is a nice change of pace."

    我的回答是「冬天是一個放鬆觀賞雪花飄落在農場的季節,轉變步調是很好的。」

  • So, yes.

    會。

  • Yes or no; I don't know how to say this.

    會或不會,我不知道該怎麼說。

  • Uh, no, we do not grow anything on the farm in the summer.

    不會,我們農場在夏天不會種任何東西。

  • I guess I could say... no, I'll stick with no.

    我覺得我可以說不,我會堅持說不會。

  • No, we don't grow anything on the farm in the summer.

    不會,我們農場在夏天不會種任何東西。

  • Uh... in the summer, in the winter.

    呃...在夏天,是在冬天。

  • Now I'm speaking so quickly I'm not even answering the question properly.

    我現在說太快導致我不知道該如何正確地回答問題了。

  • No, we don't grow anything on the farm in the winter.

    不會,我們農場在冬天不會種任何東西。

  • The winter is definitely a time where we take a little bit of time to relax.

    冬天當然是我們稍微休息的時候。

  • Now, I still go to work, I still teach every day, I still make YouTube videos, but definitely, winter is a time where the farm is at rest, and Jen gets to rest a little bit as well.

    我現在還是會上班,我每天都去教書,我還是會錄製 YouTube 影片,但農場在冬天時當然是會休息, Jen 也會稍作休息。

  • Jen actually puts in really long hours right now.

    Jen 現在的確投入很長一段時間。

  • The month of August and the month of September are very, very busy months on the flower farm.

    八月和九月是花園最忙碌的時間。

  • I should've done this video out in the flower field.

    我應該在花園拍這支影片的。

  • But I think you've seen enough of it.

    但我覺得你們應該也看夠了。

  • Um, she's very busy, so she looks forward to about the middle of October, end of October, when she can relax a little bit, uh, and just kind of watch the snow fly outside as winter begins.

    因為她很忙,所以她很期待十月中到十月底能夠稍作休息,然後在冬天來時觀賞屋外的雪花飄落。

  • It makes it a little challenging for me, though, to make YouTube videos in the winter.

    雖然在冬天拍 YouTube 影片對我來說會有點挑戰。

  • There are days where it's simply too windy, simply too snowy.

    有些時候會颳大風或下大雪。

  • Um... sometimes there's a blizzard.

    有時候還會有暴風雪。

  • It's just really hard to get outside.

    要出去外頭會很困難。

  • And I actually, every once in a while, wonder why I do that.

    我有時候甚至會懷疑自己為什麼要這麼做。

  • Why I make videos outside.

    為什麼要在外面拍影片。

  • And then I see everyone's comments about how much they like it, and, uh, I do like going outside, too.

    然後我看到每個人的留言都是他們有多喜歡我在外拍影片,而我也喜歡去外面。

  • Anyways, thanks for watching this little English lesson.

    總之,謝謝你觀看這個英語小教室。
