 A cottage in the countryside 

Would you like to live here? 

Jo: Welcome to another Real English programme from BBC Learning English with me, Jo.

Lily: And with me, Lily. 在BBC两分钟的地道英语节目中,大家可以学到很多英式英语中新出现的词语,非常有用,Jo 今天学什么呢?

Jo: Well today's word is sticks S.T.I.C.K.S. Sticks.

Lily: Jo, 我知道作为最常用的名词 sticks 是棍棒的意思,不过,特意选择这个词,你一定另有用意吧?

Jo: Well we use the expression 'the sticks' to mean somewhere far from a town or city – in the countryside.

Lily: 明白了,the sticks 是表示距离城镇较远的乡下。

Jo: We usually say 'in the sticks' or 'out in the sticks'. So if you live in a remote place...

Lily: Remote 偏远的地方。

Jo: ... you could say I live in the sticks. Or if you visited a remote place you could say it was somewhere out in the sticks.

Lily: 让我们一起听两段对话。

Insert 

A: I'm going to visit my grandmother tomorrow. 

B: Where does she live? 

A: She lives in the sticks – this really tiny village in Scotland. 

A: So what did you do this weekend? 

B: We went for a drive in the countryside and we had a lovely meal in this pub which was way out in the sticks. 

Jo: So Lily, have you travelled much around the UK?

Lily: Oh yes, I've been to lots of towns and out in the sticks too.

Jo: And where would you say is in the sticks in China?

Lily: 枣庄 – 就是远离城市的乡下小村子 in the sticks.
