III. Words & Useful Phrases

  1. “夜猫子 英语怎么说 夜猫子”英语怎么说 夜猫子 大家是喜欢熬夜,还是习惯早睡早起?在大城市中,似乎很难拒绝夜生活,不管是外出泡吧,还是宅在家 中泡网。估计有不少人都是属夜猫子的吧,今天就来看看“夜猫子”这个词英语怎么说。 请看上海日报的报导: Shanghai police yesterday reassured the city's resident and visiting night owls that legal bars and clubs were not facing mass closures or raids. 上海警方昨日宣布,世博期间合法酒吧和夜店将不会关闭。 上面这篇报导中所用的 night owl 一词就是我们所说的“夜猫子”,在英语的表述中,“猫”变成了“猫头鹰”, 因为人们觉得猫头鹰就是那种很晚都不睡觉的动物。熬夜的人要么是为了工作,work the night shift,值 , , 夜班,要么是 enjoy the night life,或者是因为失眠,insomnia。 夜班 ,或者是因为失眠, 与 night owl 相对应,早睡早起的人被称为 early bird,人们常说 The early bird catches the worm,早起的 鸟儿有虫吃。这句话提醒我们,夜晚的生活再美好,晨光还是不可错过,毕竟全新的一天是从早上太阳升 起的时候开始的哦。
  2. 老美说烂的但教科书只字不提的地道美语 (
  1) 【Hit the road. 上路了】 上路了】 A: Do you want to come in for some tea? A: 你要不要进来喝个茶呢? B: No. I'm running late. I really need to hit the road. B: 不了.我快迟到了, 得上路了. "running late" 是快迟到了的意思. "Hit the road" 的 "hit" 有「去」的意思.好比某人每周去健身房三次, 你就可以说 "He hits the gym three times a week.". "I really need to hit the road." 还可以用说成"I really need to get going". (
  2) 【hang out 和朋友在一起】 和朋友在一起】 A: I don't know what is going on lately. Jack seems to curse alot these days. A: 不知道最近 Jack 怎么搞的.他经常口出恶言. B: Well, that's just what you get from hanging out with thewrong crowd. B: 嗯, 交错了朋友就是这样啊! "hang out" 是和朋友一起做一些事.看电影、逛街、聊天都算.也不限指异性朋友. 你可以问你的朋友, Hey, what did you guys do this weekend.你的朋友可以说, well, nothing special. we just hung out. 这个意思就是, 也没干什么,就是呆着.
  2. 【pull something off 完成难题】 完成难题】 pull something off 可以用来表示“完成一份艰难的工作” 。 A: This project has to be finished next week. 这个企划案在下星期之前得要完成。 B: If we pull this off, we'll all get promotions. 若我们闯过这一关,我们就升官了。
  3. 【It's worth it. 这是值得的】 这是值得的】 有付出才有收获,而在付出的过程中多半是痛苦,这时候就要用 It's worth it.“这是值得的” 。迎接未来的 甜美果实。 A: Have all your years of hard work paid off? 你多年来的辛勤工作,到头来值得吗?
2
B: It's been worth every minute of it. Now I can retire in peace. 每一分钟都是值得的,我现在可以安稳退休了。
  4. 【push one's luck 得寸进尺】 得寸进尺】 人有时候不懂得察言观色,吃了一点甜头还不知节制,若是你遇到这种“得寸进尺”push one's luck 的人, 就可以送他这句话 Don't push your luck.“你别得寸进尺了。 给他来点小小的警告,以免对方乐极生悲。 ” A: I will be in charge of this company in five years. 我会在五年内掌管这家公司。 B: Don't push your luck. If the boss hears you say that, you'll be without a job. 你别得寸进尺。要是老板听到你说这话,你连工作都会没有。
  5. 【Grow up! 你成熟点! 你成熟点! 】 grow up 大家都知道,是指生理及心理上的成熟。 A: Uncle Ted, I haven't seen you for so long. 泰德叔叔,我好久没看到你了。 B: Karen, you're grown up to be a beautiful young woman. 凯伦,你已经出落成年轻美姑娘了。 另外,当你看到有人明明已经七老八十了,却还是幼稚异常,耍孩子脾气,你巴不得他们成熟一点,这时 候用 grow up ,就是希望他们在心态个性上能够“成熟,长大”一点。 A: Angie is a dork. Angie is a dork. 安姬真蠢。安姬真蠢。 B: Why don't you just grow up? 你成熟一点好不好?
