This is the first in a two-part Business English Podseries on idioms related to gambling.

这是有关赌博的习惯用语的2节商务英语播客的第1节。

As gambling involves money and risk, it’s not surprising that we use gambling idioms in business. The verb “gamble” itself is very common. We often talk about “gambling” money on an idea or “taking a gamble” to mean taking a risk. Another very common one is “bet,” both as a verb and a noun. When we gamble, we “bet” money in the hopes of winning and getting more money back. In a way, business is one big bet.

因为赌博涉及到钱和危险,在商业中使用有关赌博的习语也就不足为奇了。动词“gamble”用得就很普遍。我们常说在某个想法上下注或“来赌博”来表示冒险,另一个常用的词是“bet",即可用作动词也可做名词。赌博时,来下注希望能将下注的钱赚回来并赢更多的钱 。同理,商业也是一个大赌注。

In English, gambling idioms come from a few common types of gambling. Card games, especially poker, and horse racing give us the most idiomatic expressions, but we also get some from games such as dice and marbles.

赌博的习语来自一些常用的赌博形式,来自纸牌游戏,尤其是扑克,以及赛马的习惯用语最多,有些习语来自其他游戏,比如掷骰子和弹子游戏。

In this lesson, we’ll hear a conversation between Kevin and Dan, two colleagues who are talking about investing. Kevin actively invests in the stock market, while Dan is more cautious and usually avoids risk.

这节课,我们来听下 Kevin 和 Dan之间的谈话,他们是同事,两人正在讨论投资。Kevin 活跃地投资股票市场,而Dan则比较谨慎,通常避免风险。

Listening Questions:

1. Which person thinks that luck is important in investing?

2. What did Kevin do when the stock market crashed?

3. What does Kevin want to tell Dan about at the end of the conversation?
