Good morning, my buddies. I’m so glad to meet you via network. I’m hoping that we could spend a wonderful morning together. 大家早上好，我是Juliet，很高兴今天又和大家在空中见面了，希望能和您在此度过一个美好的清晨。
We have a way of saying that a person talks a lot but doesn’t do much to prove what he’s said. I’m sure you have your own expressions but I’d like to share mine with you . Let’s listen to a simple situational dialogue.
A : I plane to climb Mount Everest in my lifetime. B : You are such a big talker. I bet you’ll never do that.
Now have you found it? It is ” You are such a big talker. ” This expression indicates A doesn’t believe what B has said. It’s like saying in Chinese:” 你只是说说而已。”or“你是个爱吹牛的人”Yeah, we often can see this type of person who can talk the talk but cannot walk the walk. 我们经常可见那种说的头头是道，可是又做不到的人。
Please write down the key phrases while listening to the recording.

At the end of today’s programme, I would like to give you one more phrase which is : get a big mouth. It’s like saying in Chinese : “口风不严。”and “他就指望这张嘴活了。” The first indicates that a person cannot keep quiet about something. The second indicates that a person watch his mouth perfectly to please others to get a good reputation. 好了，在节目的最后，附赠送大家一个短语：get a big mouth。
All right , it’s time to say goodbye to everyone. Have a nice day. Thank you for your listening this time. See you next time. 好了，又要和大家暂时在空中告别了，祝大家能度过一个愉快的一天。感谢您的这次收听，下次再会。
