Neil
Hello, welcome to Authentic Real English with me, Neil and errr… where's Feifei?

Feifei
哎,对不起,我来晚了。大家好!

Neil
Goodness, it's not like you to be late. You're always so punctual and smartly dressed. But today you look a mess, if you don't mind me saying.

Feifei
什么?你说我看起来乱七八糟、蓬头垢面?I do mind you saying, Neil. It's been a very stressful morning. I didn't have time to shower, iron my clothes or even have breakfast.

Neil
Hmm. Did you get up late by any chance?

Feifei
Yes, you're right. I forgot to set my alarm last night. 所以早上睡过了头!

Neil
Has this got anything to do with you going out last night? I suppose you're going to tell me you had such a great time, you stayed out later than expected?

Feifei
Yes, how did you guess? 不过昨晚真是玩得非常开心,我很久都没有这么尽兴了!But I'm regretting it now!

Neil
Ah well, that'll teach you for staying out late,enjoying yourself!

Feifei
“That'll teach me?” I'm not going to school, nobody is going to 'teach me' not to stay out late.

Neil
It's just a saying Feifei. You might say it to someone to suggest that they should learn from the bad effects of doing something and not repeat it in the future. In other words, your stress this morning is a suitable punishment for staying out late last night – you won't do it again.

Feifei
You sound like my parents! 原来,在英语,我们可以用“that’ll teach you”这个非常口语化的表达来告诉别人应该从一个不好的事情的后果中吸取教训,也就相当于我们汉语里常说的“这回你可长记性了吧!”

Neil
These examples might explain the phrase better.

Examples
You lent some money to Dan and he didn't pay you back – that'll teach you!

My brother got a speeding ticket for driving too fast down the high street – that'll teach him!

The footballer got a red card for his bad tackle and now he'll miss playing in the final – that'll teach him!

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我们刚刚为大家介绍了一个非正式的英语表达“that’ll teach you”。这句话是用来提醒别人,“这次你知道做某事的后果了吧”或者“这回你可得从中吸取教训了。”I guess we could say 'it serves you right!'?

Neil
Yes, it's a very informal but blunt way of saying 'your suffering is your own fault'. And for you it's true.

Feifei
But do you know what, Neil? Despite my suffering, I had a really good night out.

Neil
Oh did you? And who did you have this 'great night out' with?

Feifei
Everyone from the office. We all went to the pub. That'll teach you for leaving the office early, Neil. You left too early and you missed out!

Neil
Hmm. That's enough teaching for one day. I'm off.

Feifei
Bye!
