时尚英语:“有钱没钱”的新潮说法 -- :36:5 来源: 有钱和没钱,除了用rich和poor表达之外,还有什么新潮时尚的说法吗?有钱 I'm loaded.Loaded: Slang Having a great deal of money. 非常的有钱它即可以表示某人很富有,也可以用来表示某人现在手里很有钱ExampleA: I think football players get paid far too much money.B: I know. Can you imagine being loaded like that? Having expensive cars and lots of houses--it must be incredible.A: I can't afd to go out tonight. I've spent all my money.B: Don't worry. I'm loaded right now. I'll treat you to a night out.除了用loaded表示有钱,minted和rolling也有这方面的含义I'm minted.Mint有造币厂的意思( A place where the coins of a country are manufactured by authority of the government.),造币厂里有多少钱就不用说了,所以mint的形容词有abundant amount of money的意思I'm rolling in it.Rolling 就是打滚的意思,钱多得可以在里面打滚,真是够有钱的没钱 I'm really skint.Skint: Slang without money, esp. only temporarily由上面的解释可以看出,If someone is skint, they have very little money虽然skint可以表示poor的意思,但却不能完全替代poor因为skint is usually used when someone has run outof money temporarily,它常指某人由于最近手头比较紧,钱花完了,但是很快就又会有钱了he will have some money again quite soon,所以Skint 表示一个人短时期,暂时没有钱比如月光族们在花完了这个月工资,等待下个月工资的时候,就可以说自己skintExamplesA: Do you want to come to the cinema on Friday night?B: I can't, I'm really skint this month.A: My girlfriend likes to shop a lot.B: Oh really, does she have expensive taste?A: Yes. I'm usually skint after we go out shopping together.当然了,有钱和没钱都是相对而言的哪天I can't afd to buy lunch. I'm too skint. 的时候,真希望听到你说I'll buy you lunch. I'm loaded.呢 说法 新潮 有钱 英语

职场口语:赶进度“分秒必争”的种表达法 -- :35:59 来源: 老板交代的任务周五交,信用卡还款期限明天到期,想了一天的策划案还没有头绪...我们似乎总是在和时间赛跑,总是忙得气喘吁吁还被甩在时间的后面今天我们就来说一说跟时间有关的一些表达吧1. The homework is due two weeks from Monday. 这个作业两周后的那个周一交在英文中要提到下周一可以用 next Monday,下下周一偷懒的话可以说 next next Moday,但是有时候这种说法并不是很明确例如今天是周日,那 next Monday到底是指明天的那个周一呢? 还是指一星期后的那个周一呢? 所以为了要区别二者间的不同, 明天的那个星期一可以说 coming Monday,而一个星期后的周一则是 one week from Monday. We have to submit the final report by Thursday. 我们的期末报告必须在星期四前交英文里每种时间的单位前面都要使用不同的介词,例如 in 1999、 in July、on July 等等 但是例句中的by Thursday指的是下星期四前交,如果换成on Thursday.则是指星期四那天交3. Why do we have homework to do every other week? 为什么我们每两个礼拜就有作业要交?Every other week 就是每隔一周, 如果是每隔一天就是 every other day. Anyway, you got to do your research every single day. 无论如何, 你每一天都必须要做研究大家都知道 everyday 就是每天, 但是老美很喜欢用 every single day 来强调不但是"每天",而且是“每一天”语气上是有明显的差别的5. You can take your time though. 不过你可以慢慢做Take your time 是一个很常用的短语, 指的就是你可以慢慢来,不用着急6. It took me a while to figure out how to do this problem. 我花了好一会儿才想出如何做这个题目花了多少时间要用 take 或 spend,但二者所用的主语不同,动词形式也不同Take 需要使用形式主语 it,例如:It took me five hours to do the homework." 但如果要用 spend 的话,则必须用人当主语,例如:I spent five hours doing my homework.7. Now, we are out of time. 现在,我们时间不够了时间不够了最常听老美说的就是 out of time,如果是时间正好到了,则是 "Time is up." 像每次考试时间到了, 助教都会说这一句"Time is up."8. How much longer will it take you to get all of this stuff done? 你还要多久才能把事情做完"How long?" 跟 "How much longer?" 是不太一样的, "How long?' 是一开始的时候问的,"How much longer?" 是工作到一半时问的例如,有人要去割草,你就可以问他 "How long does it take?" (需要多久?) 但要是经过了一小时他老兄还没割好, 这时候你就可以问他"How much longer?" (还要多久啊?)9. Give me ten more minutes. 再给我十分钟再给我十分钟一般老美会这么说, "Give me another ten minutes" 或是 "Give me ten more minutes." 这个 more 常常会出现在一个数字的后面指再多一点的意思例如,还需要五块钱就是 five more bucks,再来一次就是 one more time. I don't want to be the last-minute person next time. 我下次不要再临时抱佛脚了Last-minute person 专指那种任何事情都要拖到最一分钟才做的人, 当然, 根据每个人混的程度之不同,也有人被形容为 last-second person,或是 last-hour person这些都是用来形容那些喜欢临时抱佛脚的人 表达 进度 口语 职场

一旦变换看问题的角度,你的生活会豁然开朗,幸福快乐会接踵而来别交出掌握命运的主动权,也别指望局面会不可思议的好转你必须与内心希望与热情步调一致建立自信,敢于与困难短兵相接,而非绕道而行记住,力量不是驾驭局势的法宝,无坚不摧的能力才是最重要的If your life feels like it is lacking the power that you want and the motivation that you need, sometimes all you have to do is shift your point of view.By training your thoughts to concentrate on the bright side of things, you are more likely to have the incentive to follow through on your goals. You are less likely to be held back by negative ideas that might limit your permance.Your life can be enhanced, and your happiness enriched, when you choose to change your perspective. Don't leave your future to chance, or wait things to get better mysteriously on their own. You must go in the direction of your hopes and aspirations. Begin to build your confidence, and work through problems rather than avoid them. Remember that power is not necessarily control over situations, but the ability to deal with whatever comes your way.Always believe that good things are possible, and remember that mistakes can be lessons that lead to discoveries. Take your fear and transm it into trust; learn to rise above anxiety and doubt. Turn your "worry hours" into "productive hours". Take the energy that you have wasted and direct it toward every worthwhile eft that you can be involved in. You will see beautiful things happen when you allow yourself to experience the joys of life. You will find happiness when you addopt positive thinking into your daily routine and make it an important part of your world. 781
