出了国才知道,歪果仁都这么说!

2017-06-29编辑: Eileen来自: 环球教育

  在“说的像个native”这件事情上,烤鸭们从来都是认真的。

  不过总是要出了国或者看了很多多多多多的美剧之后才会发现:曾经有一些经典表达出现在我的面前,然而我并没有能够熟练运用呢!

  不过贴心的环球小编还是会继续和大家分享这些地道表达哒~看完今天这一篇,别再心塞啦~

  Do the trick

  一般的理解会认为trick是指技巧,把戏,从而将do the trick打上贬义的标签。但是实际上在英语国家,do the trick表示的是取得想要的成果,获得成功的窍门,相当于诀窍哦~

  栗子

  How often have you found yourself suffering in another lengthy meeting?

  Maybe you've asked the boss to shorten the agenda or encouraged colleagues to talk briefly. But nothing has worked. Next time, invite participants to stand instead of sit.

  I guarantee you, it does the trick. Nobody will want to stay on their feet for long, so your meeting will be short.

  关键词

  found yourself suffering in sth. 这个用法大家不妨记下来,在雅思考试中可以用到

  栗子

  deeply suffering in air polluting, 深受空气污染之害

  damage control

  damage control,也就是我们常说的损耗控制,其实还表示采取措施,将损害降到最低。

  栗子

  There were some doubts about whether David would be an effective Union president. Then, he made a racial remark in a speech at an assembly. At first, he ignored critics. Later, he tried to make a joke of it before deciding to offer a public apology. In the end, his attempts at damage control weren't successful. He lost out on the promotion.

  关键词

  例句中用at first, later 和 in the end来明确的对时间点进行了区分,烤鸭们在口语考试中也可以这么运用,尤其是说到和朋友,旅行,学习等时间点较为明确的话题之时,用这样的表达方式可以让自己的考试描述更加清晰。

  curry favor

  curry这个词在做名词的时候表示的意思是咖喱,但是在curry favor这个词组中,curry是作为动词出现的,意思是奉承讨好,而curry favor的意思,也就是拍马屁啦~

  栗子

  Don't assume that the mayor has special fondness for you. If you're influential and can help her deliver on her campaign promises, she'll compliment you, invite you out to dinner and treat you specially. The truth is she curries favor with anyone she considers to be important.

  关键词

  At first, don’t assume that……和has special fondness for you这两个高分表达各位请!记!牢!

  Then,curry favor with,这也是一个地道的表达,可以在说到和人物有关的话题时来进行表达哦~

  crack down

  这是一个在环境类话题中你一定用的上的表达~crack down的意思是大力整顿,严格管制。

  栗子

  For months, motorists had been speeding down Main Avenue. They caused a number of accidents including pedestrians being hit. That's when more police officers were assigned to enforce the law. It's worked. Since we cracked down on speeding, there have been fewer problems.

  关键词

  crack down on sth.,这个表达可以用在交通,环境,枪支犯罪等等话题之中,无论是口语还是写作之中,都能用得到,因此各位要牢记哦~

  come clean

  come clean的字面意思是“变得干净”,但是其真正含义是“坦白从宽,说出一切”

  栗子

  Mom came out of the doctor's office like everything was fine. Later, I overheard her on the phone talking about going to the hospital. When she realized I'd been listening, she came clean. She admitted that she was going to need heart surgery, and didn't want me to worry.

  cold comfort

  和come clean的构成有点像,表面上看起来这组词组说的是“冷冷的安慰”,实际上表示的是起不到任何的安慰作用。

  栗子

  Two weeks ago, I got the news that my factory would be relocating overseas. As I sat at home wondering what I was going to do for work, I glanced up. There on the wall was the award I had received for "Employee of the Year." It seems cold comfort for what I have to deal with now.

  关键词

  cold comfort for sth.是一个很妙的用法,在表达自己的谴责时常常可以用得上,例如在环境问题上,如果只是报道,却不作为,那么这些报道就只能是cold comfort for citizens,对市民来说毫无用处……

  今天的这篇分享希望大家记牢哦~否则对环球小编来说就真的是cold comfort了……
