初到新西兰的你住在青年旅舍,隔壁的一个本地人说了句,“Yeah nah bro, I reckon that’s all good, cheap as for a mean as feed like that!”然后你满脸黑线盯着他问,"Sorry, what?" 与此同时旁边的澳大利亚小伙曾经笑晕在床上(那画面太美我不敢看)。
在新西兰生活的你可能会经常遇到新西兰人说着一些压根就没听过的英语,小编今天送上新西兰口语中的高频短语。下次你再遇到新西兰人说上几句俚语,他们肯定觉得你是这个世界上最酷的人。

学新西兰英语并不容易,下面让我们从这简单的20个口语表达走起,以后会越来越容易。

Kiwi – 泛指新西兰人,或者新西兰国鸟。奇异果是kiwifruit。

Jandals 是人字拖的意思,英国小伙伴听到这个词也是蒙蒙的。
当kiwi说:"I'm gonna go to the dairy, you want anything?" 他可不是在说我要去牛奶场。kiwi的dairy通常指便利店,街角商店,或者小超市。
Chilly bin“冷藏箱”,不是用来装辣椒的桶,主要用来存放冰镇饮料。
Out in the wops前不着村,后不着店,就是in the middle of nowhere.
Macca’s麦当劳,听上去更像是对麦当娜的昵称。
tog是衣服,togs指运动衣,在纽村你说togs就是泳装~
Bonnet你去修车,师傅问你能不能把bonnet打开看看,可不是说让你把帽子打开。bonnet在纽村意为“引擎盖”。
"I have some kiwifruits in the boot." kiwi绝对没有把奇异果放在靴子里,boot意为“后备箱”。

某天室友一脸憔悴的说"I'm buggered..."他可不是被爆菊了,buggered意为“超级累”。
Fizzy drink碳酸饮料
Mince这是“牛肉馅”的意思。
Hot chips和French chips是一个种东西,炸薯条。The French is hot.倒是挺有道理。
Kai
这是毛利语中“食物”的意思。比如新西兰南岛有个地方叫Kaikoura,就是food of koura,koura是龙虾之意。Google搜出来的Kai居然是韩国某明星。
C
hocka Block相当拥挤”之意,有时候也说chockers。
Pissed室友晚上醉醺醺的回到宿舍说“I'm so pissed, bro."不要慌乱,哥们说他喝多了。
Cuppa:cup of coffee的简称,那我们汉语里一杯咖啡是不是可以说,“一咖”...
Jumper“套头毛衣”,其实这个是英式英语,kiwi也用,JK罗琳曾经在《哈利波特》中提到。
Angus不是传说中的爱神安格斯,也不是安格斯牛,这里指“生气的人”。
Hungus在新西兰和澳洲都意为“饿懵圈的人”,和上面的angus异曲同工。

第一课就结束了,简单不?我们来lesson two。
Bro
在用到“man”, “mate“, ”dude“的地方都可以用”bro“代替。感觉就像我们东北人说“哥们”一样频繁,你可以称呼出租车司机,店员等陌生人,bro。
例句:
Jack: Hey bro how’s it going?
John: I’m all good bro! Did you see Shortland Street last night bro? It was crazy bro!
All good
基本含义就是没问题,一切安好。经常用来回答“Thank you!" 再也不用说饶舌的"You are welcome."了!
例句:
Jack: I thought my car was going to break down but it was all good, thanks for waiting.
John: All good bro.
Sweet as
和all good的意思差不多,典型的新西兰俚语,在Warehouse还可以买到“Sweet as”的室内挂件。
例句:
Jack: Yo, we’re all going to Jen’s house to watch Gossip Girl and eat Toffee Pops. Gotta go gym first but I’ll pick you up at 7?
John: Sweet as (translation: OK).
Faaa
在失望和兴奋的时候都用,根据a的长短来判断说话人到底什么心情。
例句:
If you scratch a lotto ticket and win $2 you might go “Faaa, only $2”, but if you scratched it and won $20,000 you’d probably go “Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa $20,000!”
As
cheap as就是really cheap的意思,大家体会一下。

Jack: Bro, that’s expensive as! (translation: that’s really f*cking expensive).
Hardout
好几种意思,直接看例子。
