[English]跟冠词相关的几个习惯用语
hjx_221 发表于 2012-6-23 17:34:56

跟冠词相关的几个习惯用语 Face the music临危不惧学习英语习语最急讳望文生义,比如当我们看到face the music这个习语的时候,很多人会认为它一定与音乐有关,箕实它与音乐一点关系都没有,这个习语的意思是“勇于承担责任,临危不惧”。注意要用定冠词the。例如:I guess I'll have to go face the music.我猜我不得不承担后果。

A pieee of cake小菜一碟  汉语中的“小菜一碟”我们可以用英语a  piece of cake或as easy as pie来表示。注意冠词的有无。The job was as easy as pie,and we finished up an hour ago.这项活对我们来说是小菜一谍,我们早在一小时前就完成了。You want Mom to give you fifty dollars. As easy as pie,just tell her you need to buy some new shoes.你想叫妈妈给你五十美元。这容易,你只要告诉她你要买新鞋子。

Be fond of the cup/the bottle贪杯,好酒。我们经常用he fond of the cup/the bottle来表示“贪杯中之物,好酒”,cup与bottle原为“茶杯”和“瓶子”,在这里代表“杯/瓶中之物”,也就是指“洒”,注意要加定冠词。例如:Being fond of the cup,his father looks very thin.他爸爸好酒,所以看起来很瘦。Her father was too fond of the cup and would lap the gutter at times.她父亲太贪杯了,有时喝得醉醺醺的。

A bed of roses安乐窝   英语中有些习语在实际运用中需要加适当的冠词,如:a bed of roses这个习语,通常在前面加不定冠词,意思是“称心如意的境遇,安乐窝,温床”。例如:He has a good job,but with three children his life is not a bed of roses.他有一份很好的工作,但要负担3个孩子,他的日子并不好过。
Life isn't a bed of roses.人生并非事事称心如意。

Turn a blind eye to对……视面不见  英语中有很多关于身体部位的习语,注意其中名词前用不定冠词还是用定冠诃,这是约定俗成的,不能随意替换,如:turn a blind eye to就要用不定冠词.意思是“对……视而不见,熟视无睹”。例如:What will happen if we turn a blind eye to such a matter? 如果我们对这样的事情熟视无睹,会发生什么事呢?

Turn a deaf ear to对……不愿听,充耳不闻  注意这个习语中也要用不定冠词。例如:How could you tum a deaf ear to her requests for help?她请求帮助,你怎么能置之不理呢?Why will you always tuma deaf ear to what I tell you?我绘你讲的话

[English]有种旅行叫作人生
hjx_221 发表于 2012-5-21 18:39:42

有种旅行叫作人生
  Life comes in a package. This package includes happiness and sorrow, failure and success, hope and despair. Life is a learning process. Experiences in life teach us new lessons and make us a better person. With each passing day we learn to handle various situations.    Love
  Love plays a pivotal role on out life. Love makes you feel wanted. Without love a person could go hayward and also become cruel and ferocious. In the early stage of our life, our parents are the ones who shower us with unconditional love and care, they teach us about what is right and wrong, good and bad. But we always tend to take this for granted. It is only after marriage and having kids that a person understands and becomes sensitive to others feelings. Kids make a person responsible and mature and help us to understand life better.   Happiness and Sorrow
  Materialistic happiness is short-lived, but happiness achieved by bringing a smile on others face gives a certain level of fulfillment. Peace of mind is the main link to happiness. No mind is happy without peace. We realize the true worth of happiness when we are in sorrow. Sorrow is basically due to death of a loved one, failure and despair. But these things are temporary and pass away.   Failure and Success
Failure is the path to success. It helps us to touch the sky, teaches us to survive and shows us a specific way. Success brings in money, fame, pride and self-respect. Here it becomes ve

[English]What is a‘diaosi’like“屌丝”什么样?
hjx_221 发表于 2012-5-20 21:23:42

What is a‘diaosi’like“屌丝”什么样? The word diaosi was coined first by single, young men who feel they have dead-end lives. Generally, men in this category don’t earn enough, are not good looking, and have difficulty winning promotion.
“屌丝”这个词最初是由那些感到生活没出路的年轻单身汉们创造出来的。通常这类男性挣钱不多,其貌不扬,晋升无望。 Unlike their upper-class contemporaries, they lack influential families, useful social networks for their careers, and most importantly, suitable women to marry.
与处于社会高层的同龄人相比,他们缺少有权势的家庭背景,没有可以帮助他们发展事业的社会关系,最重要的是,没有合适的结婚对象。 “I’m just a diaosi, poor and plain-looking, who will marry me?” It’s a common sentiment uttered by one of them, which is half self-mockery, half reality.
“我只是个屌丝,穷困潦倒且相貌平平,谁会嫁给我呢?”“屌丝一族”常常会这样一半自嘲、一半现实地感慨到。 Many young men call themselves diaosi because they feel they are among the lowest echelons of society. They suffer low self-esteem and have stopped trying to improve their lives.
很多年轻人自称“屌丝”,因为他们觉得自己处于社会最底层。他们缺乏自尊,也不再为新生活而奋斗。 ‘Diaosi’ culture reflects social changes
“屌丝”文化反映出社会变革 According to Zhu Chongke, a professor in the School of Asia-Pacific Studies at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, the popularity of the word diaosi stems from the fact that it was created by common people and thus resonates with a huge population.
广州中山大学亚太研究院的朱崇科教授说,正因为“屌丝”一词是由普通大众创造的,才引发了大多数人的共鸣,变得如此流行。 “Labeling yourself a diaosi offers an outlet for people to mock themselves and relieve pressure, hence it spread quick

[English]How to eat in public
hjx_221 发表于 2012-5-5 9:52:36

How to eat in public各国餐桌礼仪大盘点
Table manners are how to behave when you eat a meal. They include how to handle cutlery and how to eat in a civilized manner. The world’s largest travel and digital publisher, Lonely Planet has assembled etiquette tips. It warns of blunders you should avoid at table. “It celebrates the fun of travel. Sometimes they are funny and sometimes they are informative,” said US editor Robert Reid, whose team pulled together tidbits from various cross-cultural books.
餐桌礼仪指的是你的用餐行为准则,包括如何使用餐具以及如何文明进餐。全球最大的旅行指南数字出版商“孤独星球”最近汇集了各类餐桌礼仪,并列出了餐桌禁忌警示。美国编辑罗伯特•瑞得同自己的团队将各类跨文化书籍中的珍闻搜集起来,他说:“此举用来宣扬旅行的乐趣,有时很有趣,有时也可以增长见闻。” Eating进餐 Japan日本
Lonely Planet: It is “perfectly” okay to slurp when you eat noodles.
“孤独星球”:吃面时“滋滋”出声是“完全”没有问题的。 Tradition: Unlike making big noises, slurping mildly is not rude but is a compliment to the chef. Japanese also say it tastes better if you slurp.
文化传统:不同于制造高分贝噪音,吃面时自然地发出轻微的声音非但不粗鲁,反而是种对厨师的赞美。日本人认为吃面时发出声音,面条的味道会更好。 What else to watch: It’s important to say traditional phrases of thanks before and after a meal.
其他注意事项:饭前饭后说些感谢客套话是很有必要的。 Eat sushi whole. Dip the fish part rather than the rice into soy sauce.
寿司要一口吃掉。应该用鱼生的部分来蘸取酱油,而不是米饭的部分。 Russia俄罗斯
Lonely Planet: Your wrists should be placed on the edge of the table while eating, fork in left hand, knife in the right.
“孤独星球”:用餐时手腕要放在桌子边缘,左手拿叉,右手拿刀。 Tradition: Keep your hands in sight. It is not good m

跟pot有关的词语
1. go to pot 情况越来越糟糕;走下坡路
这个习惯用语来自牧场,牧场上的牲口随着年龄的增长而每况愈下,最后在老得不中用的时候就难逃被屠宰的命运,然后人们会把它们切成小块扔进锅里煮了吃。这就是go to pot这个习惯用语的出典,当然现在它通用的意思和描述的对象已经有所转化,意思就是情况越来越糟糕。
让我们来看个例子。这个人在说自己的弟弟Freddy,曾几何时Freddy是运动健将,而如今他却放任自流、每况愈下。
例句-1:My brother Freddy used to be a star athlete, but he's really let himself go to pot. In high school he ran eight miles every day but now he just sits in front of the TV eating potato chips。我的弟弟Freddy曾是个运动明星,但他却放任自流,每况愈下。在中学时代每天坚持长跑八英里,但是如今他不但不锻炼还成天懒懒散散地坐在电视机前吃着炸薯片。
2. sweeten the pot 增加有利条件;增加赌注
Sweeten是加糖弄甜的意思。厨师烹调的时候常有一个秘诀就是在锅里加上点儿糖或者蜂蜜来调味。这样往往会使菜肴色香味俱增,更合口味。习惯用语sweeten the pot就这样流传开来了,同时这个习惯用语也有了更广泛的意义,含义是改善条件,使之更合人心意 。有时候sweetened the pot也用在业务交易方面,含义是添加某些优惠条件使得一笔交易更有利可图,并因而有更大的吸引力。我们看个例子。
例句-2:The job wasn't very interesting, but I decided to take it anyway after they sweetened the pot by promising me four weeks of paid vacation, a company car and a big bonus. How could I say no?
这份工作不太有意思,但是他们对我作了几个诱人的许诺,包括四个星期的带薪假期,公司配给汽车,还有大笔奖金。当然这些优惠使得这份工作十分合人心意,因而具有难以抗拒的吸引力了,所以我还是接受了那工作。
3. pot calling the kettle black 五十步笑百步;自己有同样的缺点
Kettle是水壶。这个习惯用语来自十七世纪用炉子里生火煮饭的年代。那时侯无论是Pot还是Kettle,长年累月经炉火烧烤都会变得一样的焦黑,要是锅数落水壶黑的话,其实它自己也半斤八两,好不到哪儿去。我们来看个例子。
例句-3:My sister Susan always lies to our parents about her grades in school. One time I forgot to tell Momand Dad I'd failed my English exam, and Susan accused me of lying all the time. If that's not the pot calling the kettle black I don't know what it is! 我姐姐Susan老是对爸妈谎报学习成绩,而当我仅仅一次忘了告诉爸妈我英

[English]Bow to pressure 迫于压力低头让步
hjx_221 发表于 2012-4-14 7:21:12

Bow to pressure 迫于压力低头让步 今日小常识
In Japan, cash machines frequently feature a video or cartoon of an assistant bowing to greet the customer. Japanese people also bow when they say goodbye. At the end of the working day, colleagues bow to each other and say 'O tsukare-sama deshita', which means 'You must be tired.' 在日本, 自动提款机会配置一个视频或卡通助手鞠躬问候客户。日本人在说再见时也会鞠躬。在工作日结束的时候, 同事们会互相行礼,说 "O tsukare-sama deshita", 意思是你一定很累了。 Bow to pressure 的意思是迫于压力而做出让步。 例句 Bowing to pressure, the restaurant changed the menu to include a vegetarian option. The senator accused Barack Obama of bowing to pressure from environmentalists. He resigned his position after bowing to pressure from the newspapers. 请注意 另一个短语 to ease the pressure 意思是放松,减轻压力。可不要混淆了。 To ease the pressure of work she decided to book a two-week holiday.

[English]Let’s face it. We all fail.
hjx_221 发表于 2012-3-24 6:56:49

Let’s face it. We all fail.
人人都有失败,不如坦然面对。
As we go through life we have relationships that don’t work out, jobs that just aren’t right, exams that we flunk, initiatives that don’t succeed. The more new things we try the more failures we are likely to have. In fact, the only way to avoid failure is to do nothing new.
这一生,我们总会遇到纠缠不清的人际关系、不甚满意的工作、未通过的考试,或者不曾实现的计划。尝试越多,挫折也越多。除非什么都不干,否则难免遭受打击。 The important thing is how we deal with failure. It can be part of a downward slide in which lack of confidence reinforces feelings of inadequacy and incompetence. But experiencing failure can be a learning experience and an opportunity for a fresh start. A good way to begin this process is by asking yoruself some tough questions.
关键是我们如何面对失败。人走下坡路,往往会自卑,感到无能为力。但失败也是吸取教训、重新开始的机会。要重新开始,最好认真思考下面几个问题。 1. What can I learn from this? 我从失败中学到了什么?
Take responsibility for what went wrong. OK, so it was not all your fault – but some of it was. Successful people don’t make excuses or blame others. They take ownership of the issues. Be critical but constructive. Try to look at the experience objectively. Make a list of the key things that happened. Analyze the list step-by-step and look for the learning points.
为所犯的错承担责任。的确,失败并非完全你的错,但你也确实在责难逃吧。成功的人从来不为失败找借口或抱怨他人,而是坦然承担责任。所以,试着客观看待挫折,列出清单,一步一步认真总结才好。 2. What could I have done differently? 如果重来一次会不会有不同的处理方式?
What other options did you have? What choices did you make? How could you have handled it differen

[English]美剧中男女朋友的表达方式
hjx_221 发表于 2012-1-31 5:50:38

美剧中男女朋友的表达方式
1. I don't want to be the third wheel. 我不想当电灯泡.
一般的自行车都只有二个轮子, 要是有三个轮子呢? 没错, 那第三个轮子就是多余的. 所以 Third wheel 就是美语中电灯泡正确的表示方法. 还有一个**, 叫 I don't want to be the third arm. 这里不是说
“三只手”的意思, 而是和 third wheel 一样, 都是电灯泡的意思. 2. He is dating another girl on the side. 他同时脚踏两条船.
我想把这句说成 I have my feet in two boats 的人也不在少数吧! 其实正确的说法应该是像这样, He is dating another girl on the side. 或是你可以说 He is dating another girl behind her back. (这个 her 指的是他女朋友的意思)
On the side 这句话你去餐厅用餐时也常用到, 指的是主菜之外的副餐, 比如说 I'd like salad with dressing on the side. 就是说我要沙拉和沙拉酱. 或是 Would you like a baked potato on the side? 要不要再点一份烤马铃薯啊? 3. I am the one-woman kinda man. 我是那种从一而终的男人.
在美国从一而终的人好像不多, 他们通常从高中就开始交男女朋友, 一直交到结婚, 中间不知改朝换代过多少次. 所以这句话是很难得听到的. 其实我比较常听的是 one-man woman, 因为看来不论中外, 女生都比男生坚贞一点. kinda在口语中常用, 它是 kind of 的简写, kinda man 就是说那样的男人。可以省略不说.
还有一种用法叫 We are exclusive. 这个 exclusive 指的是排他的意思. 所以当一对情侣说, We are exclusive时, 就是说我们心里只有对方一人, 我们都不会再去喜欢上别人. 4. Those boys like to hit on me all the time. 那些男生老爱找我搭讪.
Hit somebody 是说你打某人的意思, 但是 hit on somebody 就不一样了, hit on somebody 是当作搭讪来解释. 常常电视剧里可以看到, 一个男的跑去跟一个陌生女孩多说了两句话, 那个女生就说: Are you hitting on me? 你现在是在跟我搭讪吗? 实在是很有意思。 5. That's the long distance relationship. 我和我的情人分隔两地.
一般relationship都是特别指男女朋友之间的关系, 比如你可以跟你的另一半说, I really appreciate our relationship. 就是我很感激我们能够在一起.
Long distance relationship是一种固定用法, 这样的**我常在广播中听到. 他们一般情况下不会说成 We live far away from each other. 只会说 We have a long distance relationshi

Why do you do what you do?
你为什么要做手头上的事呢? It’s a serious question and one you’re likely not asked all that often.
这是一个很严肃的问题,但也是一个你不会经常问自己的问题。 Take a look at what you do each day and ask yourself “why am I doing this?”
看一下你每天都在做些什么然后问问自己:“我做这些是为了什么?” On a typical day I’m up with my kids, playing with them, tending to them, teaching them. Why do I do it? Because I love them, I want them to have our values, I want to teach them and I want to experience what it’s like to be a mom. I could choose to go back to a job outside of the home and earn a fairly good income, but I choose to stay home because it just feels like the right thing to do … for me. I realize that this isn’t a luxury a lot of people have despite wanting it and believe me when I say I am grateful for being able to stay at home with my kids.
有一天,我抱起我的小孩,和他们一块玩耍,照顾着他们,教育他们。我不禁想:我为什么做这些事情呢?因为我爱他们,我想他们能够拥有我们的价值观,我想教导他们并且通过这些去感受作为妈妈的经历。我可以选择回去工作,而且会有一份相当好的收入,但是我选择留在家里因为我感觉这就是我要做的。我也意识到这并不是一件奢侈的东西,很多人都有,尽管很多人口里都喊着想要这样的生活,相信我,我很感激能够呆在家里和我的小孩在一起。 I write.

[English]2012如何做到真正快乐幸福?
hjx_221 发表于 2012-1-9 19:38:57

2012如何做到真正快乐幸福?
In mid-December, I celebrated my 30th birthday at a little Scandinavian restaurant in a quickly-changing part of DC. I was surrounded by great artwork, brightly colored vats of aquavit, and the people I loved most. Throughout the cocktails and the courses of heavy winter food, I kept looking around to marvel at all I have to appreciate in my life. Professionally, I am a decently busy photographer and yoga teacher. I just marked a year and half with my boyfriend (we’re an OK Cupid success story). I have lovely friends and a great home and opportunities to travel. Most importantly, though, I feel good in my own skin and confident in my ability to handle the hard times.
12月中旬,我在一家传统北欧风情餐厅里庆祝了自己三十而立。这家饭店位于哥伦比亚,其所在地已经发展得日新月异。在派对上,我的周围是绚丽夺目的礼物,五彩斑斓的白兰地和我最爱的人们所带来的快乐。在享受可口的冬季佳肴和美酒的同时,我亦观察着周围的人和事,对我生命中所出现的一切感到无比激动和感恩。工作上,我是一个体面的摄影师和瑜伽教练。感情上,我和我的男友已经共同度过了一年半的甜蜜恋爱时光(我和他的故事正是丘比特爱神之箭成功射中的杰作)。我还有要好的朋友和一个幸福的家庭,甚至有机会去外面旅旅游。而最最重要的是,我对自己的现状非常满意,日子即使变得艰难,我也相信自己有能力把它处理好。 It wasn’t always this way. Five years ago, I was going through some serious soul-searching. I was just back in the States after living abroad. Confused about what I wanted to do, I took a job at a dysfunctional non-profit, where I soon felt trapped. I had been single for a while and thought this meant something big about me. I tried to be myself, but each date I went on only confirmed how far I was from having the kind of relationship I wanted. There was nothing really wrong in my life, but nothi

密码安全很重要 怎样设密码才安全!
Often, there is really only one thing standing between your sensitive information and criminals - your password. If they get it, they can get into banks accounts and private files, and [w]wreak[/w] [w]havoc[/w].For this reason, it's important to know what makes a password strong and secure. 通常,个人敏感信息和犯罪分子之间仅有一墙之隔——密码。如果密码泄漏,他们就能肆无忌惮地入侵你的银行账户和私人文件。因此,密码的设置就有讲究了。 This is Secure Passwords Explained by Common Craft. Chances are, you use passwords everyday. To open your computer, to log into your favorite websites, to get work done. The easy route is to have a simple password that works everywhere. Unfortunately, this can be a problem.本期介绍如何设置安全密码。密码天天都用。开电脑要密码、登录网站要密码、处理工作还要密码。你可以图方便,设置统一的密码。但这么干,准会出事。 Criminals are very good at guessing passwords.

These things are too easy for criminals to discover, so don't use them. 通常宠物的名字、生日、地址或电话号码都是密码的首选。但这类信息太容易泄漏,所以这种密码想都不要想。 Your password should not include info about you.

[English]如何用英语介绍中国春节
hjx_221 发表于 2011-12-28 20:10:22

如何用英语介绍中国春节
  What does the holiday mean?
  这个节日有什么含义吗?
  The term "pass year" is used for the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year). The word "Year" in Chinese characters used to mean a horrible beast. To combat the beast, the Chinese hang "good luck" wishes on red paper on the door and use fireworks in the belief that the beast fears red and fire. This tradition in many ways resemblethe Western belief of using garlic and crosses to fight vampires.
  中文中“过年”这个词组用以表示对春节(中国新年)的庆祝。“年”这个字在中文里是一种恐怖的怪兽。因为“年”害怕红色和火,所以中国人会在门上悬挂“春联”写上美好祝福,并放鞭炮来赶跑它。这个传统有点类似西方人用大蒜和十字架吓跑吸血鬼的传统。
  Why New Year is so special?
  为什么新年那么特别呢?
  The Chinese zodiac features 12 animals in the sequence of Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. This year is the year of Tiger. Each animal represents a different "personality". According to legend, people held a conference with all the animals, informing them that they would pick the 12 to represent the zodiac. However, in spite of being fast, the cat was not picked as its then-close friend, the rat, did not wake it. This action sparked off a rivalrythat continues till this day.
  中国的十二生肖代表了十二种动物,他们的顺序是:鼠、牛、兔、龙、蛇、马、羊、猴、鸡、狗和猪。今年是虎年。每一种动物有他们自己的“性格”。根据传说,人们当初和动物们开了一个会,最先到会的动物们就可以进入十二生肖。而身为猫最好的朋友,老鼠却没有把猫叫醒去开会。因此,它们之间的战争一直持续到今天。
  What do people do?
  那人们在新年都干啥呢?
  Eat, eat again, and then eat some more! As the old Chinese saying goes: food is everything.
  吃、接着吃、再吃更多东西!就跟一句中国古话说的那样:食物即一切。
