  Feifei

  So Neil…

  Neil

  Yes, Feifei?

  Feifei

  大家都想知道,刚才和你一起吃午饭的漂亮姑娘是谁?

  Neil

  Ah, she’s… just a friend. A new friend. Err, a very nice, new friend.

  Feifei

  Ooh, you really like her!

  Neil

  Well, she’s lovely, yes. She’s a doctor.

  Feifei

  Neil, I just can’t help thinking… she’s so pretty!

  Neil

  What are you saying, Feifei? She’s too pretty for me? As you know, I punch above my weight!

  Feifei

  You certainly do. And I’m not saying you’re fat!

  Neil

  Haha, yes. ‘To punch above your weight’ is our phrase in this Authentic Real English. It means to achieve beyond what’s expected of you.

  Feifei

  这个源于拳击运动的表达 “to punch above your weight” 的本意是 “能和高于自己重量级别的对手较量”。现在,我们用它来描述一个小国家的实力堪比大国,一个小公司可以叫板大巨头;或者一个人能做超越自己能力范围的事情。上面,Neil 说自己女朋友各方面条件都比他的好,所以我们可以说:“Neil is punching above his weight.”。

  Neil

  Hey, Feifei. That was a bit harsh. Anyway, let’s hear these examples.

  Examples

  Croatia punches above its weight when it comes to football. It has a population of under 5 million, but came second in the World Cup.

  Even as a small business, you can punch above your weight if you focus on quality and build a strong brand.

  Some of the cheaper smartphones are really punching above their weight - they're a fraction of the price but have got some great features.

  这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。在这集节目中,我们给大家分享的表达是 “to punch above your weight”。So, Neil, how did you meet this mystery woman?

  Neil

  Well, she’s a doctor. You know I was going to boxing class earlier this year?

  Feifei

  Yes, how’s that going?

  Neil

  Well, I stopped. I was training with someone much bigger than me, and I, err… broke my nose.

  Feifei

  You were literally punching above your weight! 你这可是真正的对抗高重量级选手,挑战预期。

  Neil

  Yes. And who should I meet at the hospital but this beautiful doctor!

  Feifei

  Well, it’s a good story. Shame it’s not true.

  Neil

  I know. I’ve never boxed in my life!

  Feifei

  And I know you had lunch alone today.

  Neil

  Ahh. But I hope the story helps teach this phrase!

  Feifei

  I hope so too.

  Neil

  Anyway, if you’re not busy… fancy lunch tomorrow, Feifei?

  Feifei

  There you go again, punching above your weight!
