Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English. I'm Sian.

Feifei
大家好,我是冯菲菲。

Sian
What on earth are you looking for, Feifei? Why are you taking everything out of your bag?

Feifei
I'm just looking for a stamp. 我记得我的包里有一张邮票,可怎么就不见了呢?

Sian
A stamp? What do you want a stamp for?

Feifei
I've written a letter to my family and I want to get it in the post before midday.

Sian
You've written a letter? That's a bit old-school isn't it?

Feifei
'Old-school'? Who are you calling 'old-school'? I'm younger than you!

Sian
Yeah but writing letters is quite old-school, you knowit's a bit old-fashioned. Most people just email or send instant messages nowadays.

Feifei
Yes, but it's so nice to get a real letter in the post! Old-school 这个表达近些年使用频率很高,在英式英语里,old-school 多被用来描述以往常见的事情或人,而且强调事情或人的观念、行为比较传统和老派。咱们先来听几个例句。

Examples
Woah! That haircut is so old-school!

You want to go roller-skating tonight? Man, that's so old-school!

Our new teacher is a bit old-school in his approach, but he always gets good results.

Feifei
这么说,old-school 的事情都是不好的了?

Sian
No, it doesn't have to be. It can also be used as a complimentto talk about something from the past that you admire. Or to describe something you feel nostalgic about.

Feifei
其实,在现代英语里,年青人更多地用 old-school 来描述曾经发生或流行过的,令人羡慕的往事,或令人怀旧的事情。

Examples
I love your new coatit's so old-school!

Look at these old-school computer games, aren't they awesome?!

Feifei
Exactly, I think it's a good thing to be old-school. If only I could find that stamp.

Sian
Why don't you just fax it?

Feifei
Well, that really would be old-school, Sian. Get with the times!

Sian
Hmmm.
