  • Feifei: Hello, this The English

  • We Speak. I'm Feifei...

  • Rob: ...and hello, I'm Rob.

  • Feifei: Why have you brought a bowl of

  • fruit into the studio?

  • Rob: I'm not feeling great - and

  • you know fruit is packed with

  • vitamin C, so I though eating

  • some would do me good.

  • Feifei: Hmm I see. Well, I'm sorry

  • you're not feeling great, but we have got

  • a programme to do and

  • an English phrase to teach.

  • Rob: If you don't mind, I might just read

  • a few lines from the script today - to save

  • my voice. Perhaps I could just

  • read the funny lines?

  • Feifei: No Rob! You can't just

  • cherry-pick what you want to say.

  • Rob: Cherry-pick? No Feifei, there aren't

  • any cherries in my fruit bowl - so

  • I won't be picking any.

  • Feifei: I wasn't referring to your fruit.

  • When you cherry-pick something,

  • it means you choose only what's best or

  • most desirable out of a group of

  • things or a group of people. But

  • Rob, you're not going to do that, are you?

  • Rob: Errr... shall we hear some examples

  • of other cherry pickers?

  • Josh says he cherry-picked the players for

  • his football team based on

  • their skills - but

  • I know it's because they were his friends!

  • We need to cherry-pick the best food

  • for our new restaurant - we really

  • want to impress our customers.

  • It seems unfair that our school

  • has cherry-picked the best students

  • to attend the conference

  • - we should all have a chance to go.

  • Feifei: You're listening to The English

  • We Speak from BBC Learning English

  • and we're talking about the phrase 'to

  • cherry-pick', which means to choose

  • the best or most desirable things from

  • a group. And Rob wants to cherry-pick

  • only the best lines to read from

  • this script. It's a bit unfair, Rob...

  • Rob: I was just trying to save

  • my voice but I will do my best.

  • Would you like a piece of fruit

  • from the bowl, Feifei?

  • Feifei: Oh, OK then. Err, that banana

  • is a bit mouldy...

  • that orange is a bit yellow..

  • I'll have this apple please.

  • Rob: Hmm, looks like you're cherry-picking the

  • best piece of fruit. Right, well,

  • now that you've got my delicious apple,

  • do you mind

  • if I go now - I'm really not feeling great.

  • Feifei: Oh go on, Rob. But next time

  • I'm going to cherry-pick who I present

  • with - someone who wants a bite of the

  • cherry to work with me.

  • 'A bite of the cherry' means a chance

  • or opportunity. I need someone

  • with a bit more... stamina.

  • See ya.

  • Rob: Bye.

Feifei: Hello, this The English
