متن پادکست انگلیسی BBC – تشییع جنازه

Neil
Hello, I’m Neil and welcome to 6 Minute English, where today we bring you a serious topic and six items of vocabulary.

Rob
And hello, I’m Rob. Now, here’s a serious question for you, Neil. Have you thought about what you’d like to happen when you die?

Neil
Interesting way to start the show, Rob… No, I haven’t.

Rob
Well, nobody really likes to talk about death, do they?

Neil
Well, it isn’t a fun topic. So, can we talk about something else, please?

Rob
Afraid not. Because today’s topic is funerals – a funeral is a ceremony we hold for a dead person.

Neil
And a ceremony is a formal event performed on special occasions – like a wedding or a graduation – or in this case, a funeral.

Rob
OK. Well, let’s start with a quiz question. According to a UK survey, how many of us would like our funerals to be more of a party or celebration? Is it…
a) 5%,
b) 25% or
c) 50%?

Neil
Well, I think it’s 25%. I hadn’t thought about it before – but I’d definitely prefer my funeral to be a celebration. With my favourite music playing – and definitely nobody wearing black…

Rob
Well, strangely enough, a friend of mine went to a funeral recently where the funeral director was dressed as Darth Vader from Star Wars!

Neil
Hmm. That sounds wrong. But I guess people are choosing to move away from the traditional funeral – you know, in church, people dressed in black, all very quiet…

Rob
Darth Vader does wear black, at least! Anyway, let’s hear from Shonnie Sullivan here in the UK talking about the fancy dress funeral she and her sister organized for their mother.

INSERT
Shonnie: It was quite unusual as we turned up in fancy dress.
Interviewer: Had your mum left instructions about how she wanted her funeral to be?
Shonnie:Only that we don’t cry, and we… to have a party to celebrate her life. Be happy, don’t be sad… I was a witch.
Interviewer: How did you look?
Shonnie: Oh, it was just a little black dress and I just had, like, a little fancy witch hat on – the same as my sister. And we had a very close friend of the family come as Beetlejuice – which was absolutely amazing. He really did go all out for that.

Rob
So fancy dress – special clothes you wear to an event – to look like a famous person or character from a movie. Another word we use is costume – which is a set of clothes you wear to look like somebody else.

Neil
Shonnie and her sister chose a Halloween theme for the funeral and wore witches’ costumes – little black dresses with special hats.

Rob
A close family relative dressed as Beetlejuice … Did he dress as a squashed insect, Neil? I’m confused here!

Neil
No, Rob. He dressed as Beetlejuice, the main character in a popular 1980s movie. Beetlejuice is a ghost who wears crazy clothes, and has scary hair and make up.

Rob
Hmm. I haven’t seen the film. But what does Shonnie mean when she says her relative went ‘all out’ with his costume?

Neil
To go all out means to make a big effort – and this guy’s costume involved not only special clothes, but special hair and make up too.

Rob
Like me.

Neil
What do you mean, ‘like me’?

Rob
Well, I go all out to get my clothes and hair just right for 6 Minute English.

Neil
Yes, and, well… you look great, Rob. But unfortunately nobody sees us… do they?

Rob
Yes, good point. But it’s important to make an effort.

Neil
So have you had any thoughts about the sort of funeral you would like to have?

Rob
Oooh… Yes, I like the thought of my friends and family saying their final goodbyes to me on a beach with a beautiful sunset, listening to Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin…

Neil
OK, well, before you get too carried away with ideas for your own funeral, let’s have the answer to today’s quiz question.

Rob
To get carried away means to get very excited and lose control of your feelings! I never thought I would get excited about my own funeral… But anyway – yes, back to today’s question! How many of us would like our funerals to be more of a party or celebration? Is it… a) 5%, b) 25%, or c) 50%?

Neil
And I said 25%.

Rob
No, it’s actually 50%. The market research company ICN found that half of us here in the UK would prefer something different to the traditional funeral.

Neil
More than I expected.OK, shall we look back at the words we have learned today?

Rob
Yes. First up – ‘funeral’ – a ceremony we hold for a dead person. The plural is funerals – “Fancy dress funerals aren’t everybody’s cup of tea.” The adjective is – funereal – notice the stress on the second syllable – “Who chose this funereal music? Can we change it to something more cheerful?”

Neil
‘Not my cup of tea’ by the way, is something you don’t enjoy doing.

Rob
OK – ‘ceremony’ – a formal event performed on special occasions.

Neil
“I didn’t go to my sister’s graduation ceremony.”

Rob
“In the UK, the opening of Parliament is a ceremonious occasion.” Ceremonious is the adjective.

Neil
Number three – ‘fancy dress’ is special clothing you wear to an event – for example, to look like a famous person or character from a movie.

Rob
“I’ve been invited to a fancy dress party.”

Neil
Who are you going to go as, Rob?

Rob
It’s a secret, Neil!

Neil
Number four – ‘costume’ – a set of clothes you wear to look like somebody else. “Rob is going to go to the fancy-dress party in a Superman costume.”

Rob
Good guess. Right. Number five – ‘to go all out’ means to make a big effort.

Neil
“We went all out this year with our Christmas decorations – with a life-size flashing Santa Claus and sleigh.”

Rob
Way to go, Neil! Number six – the phrasal verb ‘to get carried away’ – means to get very excited and lose control of your feelings!

Neil
“She got carried away and painted the whole house pink.”

Rob
That must be Barbie’s house…

Neil
Yup – and fancy dress is definitely Barbie’s cup of tea! OK, that’s all for today. But please remember to check out our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages.

Rob
OK. Bye-bye!

Neil

Good by!
