YM: DONNY, 你知道么？我要去参加“价格猜猜猜”节目啦!
DONNY: “价格猜猜猜”?! I know that show! You guess the price of a product, and if you get it right, you take the product home. Right?
YM: 没错！我直觉一向很准，我去一定会赢! 对了，直觉用美语怎么说啊？
DONNY: You can say hunch. h-u-n-c-h, hunch.
YM: 那"我直觉一向很准"，就是"My hunch is always right." 对吗？
DONNY: That's correct. Or you can use the phrase "gut feeling". It also means hunch.
YM: Gut feeling? Gut 肠子，Gut feeling肠子的感觉，就是直觉喽!
DONNY: 没错! For example, I have a gut feeling that I'm gonna fail my mid-term exam.
YM: Haha, but I have a hunch that you're gonna pass!
DONNY: Then I hope your hunch is right! 对了，于苗，Before you go on the show, we should practice. How much do you think my glasses cost?
DONNY: Don't worry. Take a wild guess!
YM: 什么叫 wild guess? 狂野的猜测？
DONNY: A wild guess means you have little evidence to support your guess.
YM: 哦，take a wild guess 就是随便瞎猜! 那可不行，瞎猜赢不了比赛! 我的猜测一定要有根据，靠点谱儿，那又该怎么说呢？
DONNY: That would be an educated guess. “Educated” is spelled e-d-u-c-a-t-e-d.
YM: educate 是教育，an educated guess 就是根据经验、常识作出的猜测。
DONNY: That's Right!
YM: Hmm, well, I am guessing your glasses are worth 25 dollars!
DONNY: Wow... Yumiao, you're really good at this! The correct answer is 26 dollars!
YM: Yeah! I won! I won!
DONNY: 别激动了! Tell me what you've learned today!
YM: 第一，直觉叫 hunch 或 gut feeling；
第二，瞎猜叫 take a wild guess；
第三，有根据的推测是 an educated guess!
