Neil
Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. I’m Neil.

Feifei
大家好,我是馮菲菲。

Neil
You’re a pretty polite person, aren’t you, Feifei?

Feifei
Well, thanks. I don’t know. I do try to be!

Neil
Well, that was a very polite answer! But sometimes we want to say things that are very honest, or that others might not want to hear.

Feifei
有時候,我們想表達一個真實的想法或觀點,但這個觀點可能不中聽或別人不想聽。舉個例子,我問你:“Do I look tired today?”

Neil
Well, I could directly say: “Yes, you do look a bit tired.”

Feifei
Or you could start with this slang expression ‘not gonna lie’. 

Neil
Not gonna lie Feifei, you do look a little tired.

Feifei
I know, I need to get to bed earlier! Not gonna lie 是一個通俗表達,在我們想表達真實想法,而不是禮貌寒暄的時候就可以用它。“Gonna”是“going to”的縮略形式。

Neil
It’s not only used for honest criticism, we might also use it before something we’re very proud of, or something we boast about. For example: I love recording these programmes. Though I’m not gonna lie, I’m the best presenter in the team.

Feifei
Whoah, that’s enough. 其實這個說法不僅可以用來告訴他人我們要“實話實說”,它還可以被用在一件讓你驕傲、自豪的事情前面。比如,剛才 Neil 說“I’m not gonna lie, I’m the best presenter in the team”,although I’m sure everyone listening agrees that I’m the best presenter。

Neil
Of course you’re a fantastic presenter, Feifei. Just an example! 

Feifei
Talking of examples, let’s hear a few more.

Examples
A: Fancy coming round for dinner tomorrow?
B: Absolutely. If you’re making your famous roast?
A: Oh yes. Not gonna lie, it’s the best roast in town!

Slow down! You really are a terrible driver Mark, not gonna lie.

Not gonna lie, I absolutely love my job. I feel so happy when I walk through the office door every day.

Neil
That last example sounds just like me. Especially as I’m… the best presenter.

Feifei
好了,好了,this joke is getting old now。

Neil
You’re right. OK, one more thing. This phrase ‘not gonna lie’…

Feifei
Yes?

Neil
Not gonna lie, I think some people use it too much!

Feifei
是的,not gonna lie 這個表達在社交平臺中出現的頻率非常高。你肯定見過這種用法:一位好友發了一張自己在海邊度假的圖片然后配上文字:“Not gonna lie, it’s stunning here”。

Neil
The kind of post that makes me feel jealous when I’m stuck in the office.

Feifei
But I thought you loved your job?!

Neil
Oh, I do.

Feifei
And yes, you are a very good presenter, Neil.

Neil
Well, that makes me feel better, not gonna lie.

Feifei
Bye.

Neil
Bye.
