Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Neil
And I’m hungry – I mean Neil. Feifei, why did you book this studio recording session at midday? I'm starving. Do you fancy going for lunch? I've heard that new chicken restaurant just down the road is excellent – mmm…

Feifei
Hmm, not sure about that.

Neil
Oh? Have you been there before?

Feifei
Yes, and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Neil
Oh, really? So the food's bad? Everyone says it's great!

Feifei
Well, the food was great…

Neil
Eh? The food was great but it left a bad taste in your mouth? I don't understand!

Feifei
Let me explain. 如果一件事情或一个经历 “leaves a bad taste in your mouth”,那么这个事情就给你留下了不愉快的记忆。

Neil
Oh, I see. So what went wrong?

Feifei
The bill was twice as much as it should have been!

Neil
Ah, I get it now. We use the expression it 'leaves a bad taste in your mouth' when we have a negative experience and feel bad or angry about it afterwards – like being ripped off in a restaurant!

Feifei
Come on, Neil. Let's hear some examples. Then we can go for lunch – somewhere that doesn't rip me off!

Examples
I refuse to go back to that hotel. They were so rude, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

When my boss sent me that angry email last thing on Friday, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

It left a bad taste in my mouth when I got fined for going just one mile an hour over the speed limit!

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我刚才用表达 “leave a bad taste in someone's mouth” 描述了我去办公室附近一家餐馆的用餐经历。但 Neil 不明白为什么 “leave a bad taste” 其实和食物的味道之间没有任何关系。

Neil
We use the expression it 'leaves a bad taste in your mouth' when we have a negative experience and feel bad or angry about it afterwards. So, is it time for lunch?

Feifei
Yes, Neil! I really want you to come and try that new tofu place. The food is just delicious and the service is excellent!

Neil
So, will it leave a good taste in my mouth?

Feifei
It sure will! Bye.

Neil
Bye.
