Rob
Hello, I'm Rob.

Feifei
大家好,我是冯菲菲。欢迎收听《地道英语》。

Rob
Feifei, you've travelled the world but have you ever been to la-la land?

Feifei
你说的美国洛杉矶吗?Los Angeles – the city of angels. It's an amazing place, full of film stars!

Rob
Sounds great and you're very clever – la-la land is the informal name for Los Angeles.

Feifei
美国加州洛杉矶市 Los Angeles 的别名就是“la-la land 梦幻之都”。

Rob
Ah but there is another la-la land.

Feifei
Where is this other la-la land?

Rob
It's usually in someone's head! Like our boss – he wants me to write all these scripts, edit them and make him a cup of tea – all by the end of the day. He is living in la-la land!

Feifei
咱们老板住在 la-la land?他明明住在伦敦。你是什么意思?

Rob
Well Feifei, if someone is living in la-la land it can also mean that they are in a fantasy world where they believe impossible things might happen – they are not being realistic.

Feifei
说某人住在 la-la land 的意思是“此人生活在空想国,想法不现实,不切实际”。

Rob
Someone in la-la land doesn't understand how things really are – take a listen to these examples.

Examples
She's clearly living in la-la land – how can we ever afford to buy a house with the little money we earn?

My boyfriend's living in la-la land if he thinks I'm going sailing with him – I get seasick!

Feifei
La-la land 用来描述一个人的想法和行为与现实脱离,象活在梦幻之地里。Talking of which, I know the feeling – I've got lots of work to do too and I'm going on holiday tomorrow. I don't suppose you could help me?

Rob
Feifei, you really are living in la-la land – I've told you I haven't got any time.

Feifei
Ah well, I just thought I'd ask.

Rob
Anyway, where are you off to on holiday this time?

Feifei
Can't you guess?

Rob
La-la land?

Both
Bye!
