Neil：Hello, I"m Neil.
Neil：So do you want a cup of coffee then, Feifei?
Feifei：Yes, but you know the rules! 录音间里不能喝任何饮料！
Neil：Well that is the rule but nobody"s looking so maybe we could sneak two cups in?
Feifei：Sneak two cups in? 偷偷地拿两杯咖啡进来？OK, you keep an eye out for the boss and I"ll grab the coffee from the kitchen.
Neil：…ok, the coast is c传奇再现_2018年最新新闻网lear!
Feifei：The coast is clear “海岸线明朗清澈”？你怎么知道？We"re nowhere near the seaside.
Neil：We don"t need to be – it"s just a saying. "The coast is clear" means it"s safe to do something because nobody is watching –唐砖_2018年最新新闻网 so we won"t get caught.
Feifei：我明白了。原来在英语里，“the coast is clear”这个说法的意思是“已经没有危险”或“没有被发现或抓住的危险了”。人们常在做不被允许的事情时用这个说法。So we"re being a bit naughty, aren’t we Neil?
Neil：Yes that"s right – hopefully nobody will ever find out what we"re doing! Let"s hear some more examples of this phrase.
I really wanted to know what my birthday present was, so when the coast was clear, I unwrapped it – I guess I"ve spoilt my surprise now!
The coast is clear so make a run for it before you get caught!
Feifei：表达 the coast is clear 的意思就是“危险已过”，可以开始安全地做一件事情了。Right Nei大明狂士_2018年最新新闻网l, is the coast still clear?
Neil：Yes, but quick before someone comes. Quick… someone"s coming!
Oh hello Feifei… are you making coffee for the te枭臣_2018年最新新闻网am? Thanks - I"ll take those from you shall I? You wouldn"t want to be caught drinking those in the studio now, would you? You know the rules! See ya.
Feifei：Err, see you later, Debbie. Oh dear Neil, it looks like the coast wasn"t clear.
Neil：I think we got away with it. Anyway, that"s the end of the programme. What shall we do now?
Neil：Coffee! Good idea, let"s go.
