Rob
Hello, I'm Rob.

Feifei
大家好,欢迎收听 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
So, it should have been Neil presenting with you today, Feifei, but he's gone on holiday, so you've got me instead.

Feifei
Yes, I know. 我们的同事 Neil 正在休年假,整整两周时间呢。

Rob
Oh, lucky Neil. Two weeks doing nothing - sitting on the beach in the sun, eating ice-cream. Wonderful!

Feifei
Oh, Neil won't be sitting on any beaches. He's going to help teach English at a school in Spain.

Rob
What? He's gone to Spain to do the same work he does here – that's a bit of a busman's holiday, isn’t it?

Feifei
“A busman’s holiday 一位公车司机的假期”?Neil 又不是公车司机。Neil’s job isn't driving buses, Rob.

Rob
No, Feifei – a busman's holiday is a holiday where you do the same thing you do at work instead of just having a rest.

Feifei
原来,在英语里,“a busman’s holiday”是指“一个照常工作的节假日”,也就是说虽然在休假但仍然做一些与自己平日上班做的类似的工作。That’s a strange choice, isn't it, Rob?

Rob
It is, but he's not the only one. Listen to these examples.

Examples
The taxi driver said he was going on a driving holiday around Europe – sounds like a busman's holiday to me!

My mini-break turned into a bit of a busman's holiday when I had to use my plumbing skills to fix a leak in the hotel.

I decided to take a break from playing in the band and go on holiday but it turned into a busman's holiday when I ended up busking to raise enough money for my plane ticket home.

Feifei
A busman’s holiday 用来描述虽然在度假但照常工作的假期。这听起来可真是没什么意思。If I went on holiday, doing my job would be the last thing I'd do.

Rob
Yes, me too. But think about what Neil actually does in his job…

Feifei
Hmm. He drinks tea… sits around chatting… goes shopping…

Rob
Exactly – and he'll be doing the same thing in Spain.

Feifei
Now that sounds like my kind of ‘busman's holiday’! When can I go?

Rob
Let's finish the programme first.

Feifei
OK. Bye!

Rob
Bye-bye.
