Going forward 从今往后

为了教英语,Neil 订了火车票和菲菲一起出差。不过因为座位的方向,菲菲受了不少苦。菲菲请 Neil 注意,将来别订反方向的座位了。

Neil
Hello, I’m Neil and welcome to Authentic Real English, which this week comes from a train.

Feifei
Hi I'm Feifei. 是的,为了更好地给大家讲解本期节目要学习的表达,我和 Neil 坐上了火车。This English expression has become very common - particularly in a work environment.

Neil
I love trains, Feifei – racing through the countryside, looking out of the window. Ah, it's great – you can't beat it! Oh – are you OK, Feifei? You look a bit… green.

Feifei
Well it's OK for you, Neil, but I've got the backward-facing seat. It makes me feel sick. Going forward, can you avoid booking me the backward-facing seat?

Neil
Of course! Going forward I'll get you a forward-facing seat.

Feifei
(sounding sick) 'Going forward' is another way of saying 'in the future'.

Neil
That's right. You'll hear 'going forward' used at business meetings when a person wants someone to change the way they do something in the future.

Feifei
在工作环境中,比如在开会时,一个人让他的同事在未来工作中做出改变时就会用到 going forward 这个表达。咱们来听例句。

Examples
A: Did you get the files I emailed over?
B: Yes I did, but going forward can you send hard copies in the post? We need them for our records.

Boss: I've noticed you chatting on your mobile quite a lot during the working day. Going forward, can you keep the private conversations to your lunch breaks?

A: Going forward we will only have an online version of our newspaper. The days of print are dead.

Feifei
以上我们听到的都是人们在工作环境中使用 going forward 的例句。在这些语境中,going forward 所表达的意思是“从现在开始,今后、将来”。

Neil
I quite like doing Authentic Real English recordings from the train. Going forward, shall we record all our programmes from vehicles?

Feifei
Hmm, not sure about that. I get terrible travel sickness.

Neil
Well, going forward, I recommend you take these pills (hands bottle of pills over).

Feifei
Urgh…

Neil
Goodbye!

Feifei
Bye!
