别再打着学英语的幌子来看美剧啦~

话说前几天米国人民刚刚过完了Thanksgiving Day~~


老美也真是够认真的,假日也过得很认真,身边好多申请出国的小伙伴抱怨假期期间网申系统的好多工作停止(=ω=;)


果然还是我炎黄子孙更勤奋一些~~ (〃´-ω・) 

Thanksgiving Day

这让我不由得想起了经典美剧《F.R.I.E.N.D.S》关于Thanksgiving Day 的场景,


不琢磨不知道,惊讶地发现几乎每一季里面都有一集是关于Thanksgiving Day 的,


大概是编剧有意设置了这一集,这也正好说明了这个节日在米国人民心中的重要地位吧,


一时心血来潮,又把所有的关于Thanksgiving Day的剧集看了一遍,看到了一些常见的口语表达分享给大家~~


01

right on

  • exactly correct / 完全正确;

  • 比起yes,表达肯定的时候说这个短语是不是显得很牛X~~

  • 'Power to the people!' 'Yeah, right on.'

02

get back

  • to get avenge: retaliate / 报复,复仇

  • get back 最浅显的意思是“回来”,“返回去”;用作“报复”的意思时通常与 at 连用。知道了这个搭配,口头上说出来是不是瞬间就高大上了~

  • She's trying to protect herself and get back at Damon for what he's done to Mason.

03

sneak a taste

  • eat something furtively / 偷吃

  • 这个说来并不是一个固定搭配,但是这种搭配就是我们学习英语时总会遇到的情况,每个词都认识,但并不一定会用出来,所以多记一记还是好的~

  • I baked cookies, but don't you boys sneak  a taste while I take out the garbage.

04

come on to sb

  • interested in starting a sexual relationship with somebody / 对某人献殷勤

  • 有时候想用英语表达一些口头上很常见的意思却总是不知道该怎么去表达,但是实际上可以用这种看起来很常见的搭配来完成~

  • I met a guy at a party and he came on to me real hard.

05

screw up

  • bungle, make mistakes, mess sth up / 犯错,弄糟

  • 弄糟了事情的时候就说 I screw it up/mess it up, and I'm really sorry, it's all my fault, I beg your pardon, I won't do that again. Please~

  • Younger siblings often learn lessons watching the elder ones screw up. 

06

up to you

  •  depending upon yourself / 看你自己

  •  很实用的傲娇口头用语~“那我该肿么办呢?”“看你自己咯~It's up to you”

  • Now that the tool is available to you, what you do with it is up to you.

07

have a crush on sb

  • attracted to sb / 迷恋某人

  • 以后碰到喜欢的外国妹子,约个romantic的场合,找个perfect的时机,含情脉脉的gaze into her eyes, 然后对她说:...

  • It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone. But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

08

put sb on the map

  • make somebody famous / 使某人出名

  • 以后就可以用put him/her on the map 啦~~不要总是make/let him famous

  • The song put her on the map as not only a musician,  but also a so-called "performance artist" — though she says she dislikes that phrase. 

09

fall for it

  • easily got cheated by sb/sth, believe sb/sth easily / 上当,容易相信

  • 非常简单却高频的表达,背下来吃不了亏,上不了当~

  • No way. You cheated me before. I will not  fall for it again!

10

nose job, boom job

  • plastic surgery / 鼻子,胸部整形手术

  • 常识性的表达,别整的以后听到这个俩短语还想半天:啥工作?鼻子工作?鼻子工作是啥?...

11

every once and a while

  • now and then, from time to time / 不时,偶尔

  • 还有once a while, every once in a while 都长得差不多,意思也都是相近的

  • So every once in a while, turn off your phone and laptop, switch off the TV and lay your worries temporarily to the side.

所以学习语言就应该是平时点点滴滴的积累,不存在一蹴而就的。以后看美剧就该用心去观察啦( • ̀ω•́ )✧
