雅思

第一次听到“You may be out of juice”你是不是以为说你喝完果汁了?

如果你是这样理解的,那就尴尬了!

因为Juice除了果汁之外,还有很多其他意思。

我们就一起学习一下吧~

NO.1

Juice 在口语表达中中相当于power

My laptop's out of juice. This is so frustrating.

我的笔记本电脑没电了,这让我很沮丧。


拓展:表达能量很低的时候

The car's running out of juice.

这辆车没油了。



NO.2

Juice up:使充满活力;狂欢作乐


The movie is juiced up by adding some battle scenes.

增加了一些战争的场面,影片更加激动人心了。


NO.3

Let somebody stew in their own juice 让某人自作自受


I want to let them stew in their own juice for a bit.

我想让他们自食其果一下。


NO.4

  • 洗衣服≠Wash clothes

日常表达中“洗”一般都会用wash来表达,例如wash dishes,但在英文中,“洗衣服”的正确表达是Do the laundry。

  • 关灯≠Close the light

口语中,我们希望别人打开或关闭电子设备,比如笔记本电脑、家庭电视等,不能直接对应汉语中的Open和Close。英文中,正确的表达是Turn on/off Switch on/off

  • 吃晚饭≠Eat dinner

英语中,和吃相关的动词大部分用have,例如吃晚饭Have Dinner ,喝咖Have a coffee。但也有特殊,比如“吃药”,英文一定要用Take,Take medicine


其实,out of 还有很多用法!例如:

NO.5

  • out of the blue 晴天霹雳;出乎意外


定义/用法

Occurring unexpectedly, without warning

出乎意料毫无警示的发生了。

 


适用场景 

- Can be used in formal or informal settings.

适用于正式跟非正式场合。

- Suitable for all audiences.

适用于所有人群。

 

起源

- Has been used for centuries.

这个短语已经使用了几个世纪。

 

- A shortened, more common, version of the expression “out of the clear blue sky”. Essentially, the sky is clear and blue, you should be able to see clearly, but you did not notice what would happen next.

一个非常普遍常见的表达是“ 在晴朗的蓝天下”。本质上,天空是清澈而且胜蓝的,你应该看的非常清楚,但是你没有注意到接下来发生什么事情。

 

例子

一)My ex-girlfriend called me from out of the blue. I did not answer the phone. It has been three years since I have spoken to her. I have nothing to say to her.

 

二)I know that my request is out of the blue, but can our team receive additional compensation for this project? We are schedule to work 40 hours per week, but we are all working over 60 and have been for weeks.

 

三)Our teacher assigned two homework assignments out of the blue. I wish she would follow the course syllabus.
