Neil
Hello, welcome to another edition of Authentic Real English. I'm Neil.

Helen
Hi, everyone. I'm Helen.

Neil
What are you doing Helen? Are you looking for something?

Helen
哎呀,糟了,我的耳环不见了。这是我妈妈送给我的礼物。

Neil
Oh. When did you see it last?

Helen
我刚才还戴着呢。肯定是在我耳朵上的,我从洗手间出来的时候还照了一下镜子,没看到耳朵上少了耳环。

Neil
Em, I'll help you to look for it. But I don't think you'll find it by turning the place upside down. Be calm. Let's leave the chairs on the floor.

Helen
我没把椅子倒过来。我就是把它推开了,看下面有没有我的耳环。

Neil
When I say 'turn the place upside down', what I mean is you are making the studio very messy.

Helen
噢,你是说我为了找耳环,把录音室翻了个底朝天。 I have turned the studio upside down. 哎呀。找到了,就在桌子底下,正好有个窟窿。

Neil
Phew, what a relief. I don't think we'd be allowed back in the studio if we literally turned the studio upside down.

Helen
真的不好意思,让我们再来听几个例句吧。

Examples
I turned my house upside down and I still couldn't find my car keys.

I don't care if you have to turn the place upside down. You've got to find my wedding ring.

Neil
Well, let's tidy up before the studio managers come back and turn our lives upside down.

Helen
Yes, let's do that!
