点滴英语天天学第99期:分手了!(词汇详解5)

来源:可可英语 编辑:ballet    |  可可官方微信:ikekenet

欢迎大家来到点滴英语天天学的口语教室。我们已经知道Jennifer告诉Kenny关于Jane和Mike分手的事情和原因后,接着又跟Kenny进一步说了什么呢?我们来看一下:

She sure was. She dropped him like a hot potato the next day! I don't they'll ever be able to patch things up, either. With Jane, there are no second chances.

我们先来学习Kenny话语中的drop like a hot potato和patch things up这个2个词汇。今天,我们先来学习:drop someone like a hot potato

To drop someone like a hot potato means to abandon someone or something suddenly and completely, sometimes to avoid potential problems. 用中文来说就是“抛弃,离弃某人或某物”,所以,我们可说为:drop someone like a hot potato,也可说为:drop something like a hot potato

我们来看几个例句来熟悉它的意思和用法。

例句1:I haven't seen Cynthia in weeks because she dropped me like a hot potato once she started hanging out with the cool kids.(我好几周都没见过Cynthia了,她一开始和那些很酷的孩子们一起出去玩就把我给甩掉了。)

解析1:in weeks的意思是“在几周内”。例如:Lisa was good for you tonight; you were more relaxed than I've seen you in weeks. (今天晚上同莉萨在一起对你有好处,我几个星期没看见你这么舒心了。)He stood up for the first time in weeks, and we danced together in the pool. (他站起来,这是几周来的第一次,然后我们一起在池中翩翩起舞。)

解析2:hang out是一个固定短语,意思是“闲逛”,和某人“闲逛”,介词with,即:hang out with someone。例如:Why do you just hang out in Bars? Why don't you hang out with me instead? (你为何只去泡酒吧?跟我一起玩儿不好吗?)There was a little boy named Johnny who used to hang out at the local corner market. (有一个叫Johnny的小男孩过去常常在当地的拐角市场那儿闲逛。)

例句2:We dropped our renovation plans like a hot potato after finding out how much the job would cost。 (我们知道这项工作要花多少钱后,就放弃了我们的改造计划。)

解析1:find out是固定短语,意思是“发现,觉察出”。例如:How did you come to find out where she's living? (你是怎么打听到她住在哪儿的?)I'll write and find out how you've been conducting yourself. (我会写信打听你是怎样做人的。)

解析2:after finding out how much the job would cost是介词短语。介词后面接动词,要使用动名词形式。
今天,我们学习了drop like a hot potato这个词汇,明天我们来学习patch up这个词语。
