小編今天要來教大家如何用英文來表達一些日常生活用語,想知道大家都知道怎麼學好英文的嗎?就從五句超實用的英文會話開始!

 

如何學好英文文法-apple

1. 用大腦想想好嗎? use your noodle

大腦相信大家一定會想到用”brain”, 但是既然是俚語,那就不會這麼普通啦! 當外國人跟你說請你use your noodle的時候,並不是要你「用你的麵喔!」這樣也太搞笑了吧! 英文的口語當中,noodle有「大腦」的意思喔! 所以叫你用大腦的時候,不就是要你使用腦子想想嗎? 所以這樣解釋後應該就比較好理解了吧! 這裡要稍微注意一下,noodle這裡是不用加S的喔!

例子:

  • You can do better in English if you'll just use your head.

如果你用用你的大腦的話,你的英文就會考更好了!

  • Tom: Shelly uses her noggin and gets things done correctly.

Jacky: Yes, she sure knows how to use her noodle.

湯姆: 雪莉用用大腦就能把事情做好了!

傑克: 當然,她知道如何運用她的腦袋!

說明: 以上的 "use your head” 以及 "use her noggin” 也是表達「用大腦想想」的意思喔!


2. 我們隨機應變吧! play it by ear.

隨機應變的意思就是在毫無準備或者是計畫的情況下,來臨場反應當下要怎麼做! 所以在英文當中會使用”play it by ear”來表示這種「隨機應變」的意思喔!

例子:

Amy: I don’t think I have enough time for our speech tomorrow!

Ken: So I guess we’ll have to play it by ear.

愛米: 我想我沒有時間準備明天的演講!

肯: 所以我猜我們只能隨機應變吧!


3. 我就有話直說囉! made no bones about

當你有話直說的時候,大部分都是指你毫不猶豫地說出你的想法或感覺,根本不會考慮說出去的話會不會傷人或者是給別人難勘的後果! 在英文會用”make no bones about sth.”來表示有話直說喔!

例子:

One of your team member made no bones about his dislike of working overtime every day, so I think maybe you can help him out if you can

你的組員明白地說他不喜歡每天加班,我想如果你可以的話就幫幫他吧!

My boss made no bones about his dissatisfaction with my work performance.

我老闆直截了當的告訴我他不滿意我的工作表現!


如何學好英文單字-錢

4. 這看起來真棒! a million dollars

這句話簡單來說可以用”It looks great!”,不過這應該是小學程度的用法啦! 我們來看看今天的俚語用法叫做是”look/feel(like) a million dollars”,這句話不是在說某人看起來好像很有錢的樣子喔! 其實是在讚美喔!

例子:

Bill: Wow! You look a million dollars! What’s the occasion?

David: Thank you. I’m going to my sister’s wedding.

比爾: 哇! 你看起來真帥! 今天是甚麼日子嗎?

大衛: 謝謝你! 我今天要去參加我妹妹的婚禮!


如何學好英文發音-horse

5.稍等一下! Hold your horses!

這句話同樣的在國中就教過啦! 小編想大家應該會直接用 "Please wait a minute!” 吧! 其實俚語用法的時候可以用 "hold your horses”, hold可以解釋成拉住的意思喔! 所以當你聽到這個用法的時候,千萬不要以為對方是要你拉住你的馬喔! 其實是要你先等一下的慣用語啦!

例子:

  • Hold your horses! I don't see your invitation, sir!

先生請等一下! 我沒有看到你的邀請卡! 

  • Hold your horses! Are you sure she’s the one that stole your cell phone?

請等一下! 你確定她就是偷你手機的那個人嗎?
