Neil
Welcome to Authentic Real English. I’m Neil.
Feifei
大师好,我是冯菲菲。
Neil
Actually, could you help me with something?
Feifei
Go on.
Neil
There’s this girl I like. I want to ask her for coffee. But I don’t want to seem too serious or creepy or anything. Just friendly.
Feifei
你此刻是想给她发条动静?OK.
Neil
I just can’t find the words.
Feifei
Easy. 给她发几个脸色。Much less formal!
Neil
You mean, like, a smiley face?
Feifei
Yeah, but those are so last year.
Neil
Maybe a love heart?
Feifei
Seriously? That’s a bit too much. 不要吓到人家。You need to up your emoji game!
Neil
My emoji game… like an emoji of a video game… or a football?
Feifei
Nope. The phrase ‘to raise your game’, or ‘to up your game’, means to improve. 我的意义是你颁发情符的本事需要好好提高提高。
Neil
Yes, it’s a good phrase. Feifei, you’re not working hard enough, you need to up your game!
Feifei
That’s not true, but good use of ‘up your game’. Now the phrase has developed a bit. We often add what we are trying to improve before the word ‘game’. Game 这个词能够指“一个角逐或游戏的技巧”、本事。短语“to raise your game”和“to up your game”的意义是“提高技术和程度”。不外,此刻在利用的时侯,我们多在 game 前加上需要提高的阿谁本事。
Neil
Like this:
Examples
I never finish novels. I need to up my reading game.
I badly need to work on my interview game before my big interview next week.
You could do with a bit more exercise, mate. You should raise your running game!
Feifei
好了,但愿上面的例子给大师示范了若何用“game”来暗示“技术、能力”。Any progress with that text message?
Neil
Here goes: “Lucy. Please have a coffee with me tomorrow.” And then some coffee emojis.
Feifei
Well, it’s direct! But I still think we need to up your emoji game. Actually, and your texting game. Oh, and your dating game… We’ve got a lot of work to do!
Neil
Oh, ok. Well, I already sent the message. Let’s hope it works! Oh, she’s replied already.
Feifei
快看她说什么?
Neil
“Neil. I thought you’d never ask! I’d love to have coffee. 3pm?” And then a couple of big smiley emojis.
Feifei
Wow, congratulations. Maybe it’s me who needs to up my game.
Neil
Looks like it!
Both
Bye.
