Have you gone wi-fi?
Jo: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Jo.

Jean: And I’m Jean. (来源:EnglishCN.com)

Jo: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language.

Jean: 在《地道英语》节目中,我们要来了解和学习一些英国英语语言中新出现的新词汇和短语。

Jo: It’s very important to stay up-to-date with English because new words and expressions enter the language all the time.

Jean: 那我们今天的新词汇是什么呢?Jo?

Jo: Today’s expression is 'wi-fi' – W.I. and F.I. Wi-fi.

Jean: Wi-fi. Wi-fi 是什么东西呢?

Jo: Well, Wi-fi is short for wireless fidelity. It means that instead of using wires, your computer is connected to the internet or other computers by radio.

Jean: 原来 wi-fi 就是一种不需要把电脑连在传统的线路上,就能直接快速上网的无线技术。

Jo: That’s right. You could say 'I work in a very modern office. Everything’s wi-fi.'

Jean: I see.

A: Where do I put this wire to connect to the internet?

B: Don’t be silly! This computer is wi-fi! You don’t need any wires!

Jo: Is your office wi-fi, Jean?

Jean: No, it isn’t.

Jo: Neither is mine. We have wires going everywhere.

Jean: Really?

Jo: Yes. However, the boss says we may go wi-fi next year.

Jean: Is it expensive?

Jo: Of course wi-fi is more expensive, but it’s getting more common now.

Jean: Is it in the UK?

Jo: Yes, all new computers are wi-fi these days.

Jean: 好,今天我们学到的新词汇就是 wi-fi,就是一种不需要把电脑连在传统的线路上,就能直接快速上网的无线技术。And we have to go now.
