BBC地道英语口语:Perk 额外的福利 Helen: Hello, welcome to Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Helen. Zoe: 你好,我是刘佳。 Helen: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language. Helen: So, keep up-to-date with us. Zoe: Helen, 快来告诉我们今天要学的新词是什么吧。 Helen: Today’s new word is ‘perk’ – P.E.R.K. – perk. Zoe: Perk. 这个词的意思是...? Helen: A perk is something you receive outside your salary for doing a job. Zoe: 这个词的意思就是自己正常工资以外的收入。来给我们举个例子吧, Helen. Helen: Of course. Nowadays, many jobs offer extra benefits – perks – to employees. Zoe: 现在,一份工作除了正常工资以外,还有很多很多的福利给人工。 Helen: They might be free health insurance, a car, or free schools for the employee’s children. Zoe: 所以perks就包括免费的健康保险,一辆汽车,或者是让员工的孩子们免费上学。 Helen: Yes, those are very good perks. Insert A: I don’t know why you keep working there. The salary is horrible. B: Yes, but the perks are great. I get free lunches, a car and 2 months holiday every year. C: Are there a lot of perks in your job? D: Well, not really, although I do get to travel a lot to interesting places, and I don’t have to be in the office till 10 in the morning. Zoe: So, what perks would you like, Helen? Helen: Well, a company car would be great. I’d also like more holidays. Zoe: Me too. But do you get many perks with your job now? Helen: A few... I get to work with you, of course! Zoe: Well thank you. That’s my best perk too! Helen: Let’s recap – perk is... Zoe: 是一个俚语,就是说那种除了工资以外的福利。 Helen: Well, it looks like we need to finish here.
