BBC地道英语口语:Chipping 解码

Helen: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Helen. Jean: And I’m Jean. Helen: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language. Helen: Today’s expression is ‘chipping’ – C.H.I.P.P.I.N.G. – chipping. Jean: Chipping. 给我们讲讲它的意思好吗? Helen: Well, chipping is something you do to a game console, like a Playstation. Jean: 我想你说的chipping 是和Playstation这样的电子游戏机有关系,对吗?不过chipping到底是什么意思呢? Helen: Well, game consoles are usually protected. They only play games from certain regions. For example, a Chinese console only plays games from China, and the same with a UK one. Chipping means altering them to play games from all regions. Jean: 这么说,chipping就是给电子游戏机解除它的地域限制,解码的意思。 Helen: Yes. But chipping is now illegal in many countries, and you can get into big trouble if you do it. Insert A: I hear John has been in trouble with the police. B: Yes, he was arrested for chipping game consoles. He had to pay a £500 fine! Jean: Is chipping in the UK common? Helen: Yes. I think it’s quite common, but the police are trying to catch people who are chipping their game consoles. Jean: So chipping is illegal. Helen: Yes, chipping is a CRIme. Jean: 好了,让我们回顾一下,chipping就是给电子游戏机解除它的地域限制,解码的意思,And that’s all we have time for today. Helen: Yes, that’s all. You’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. See you next time. Jean: Bye.来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20100723/23676.html
