. 2012年11月5日 星期一

 熟練地運用英語的一個重要方面就是學習並掌握英語本族者常用的生動、活潑的習語。

1. after you.你先請。這是一句很常用的客套話,在進/出門,上車得場合你都可以表現一下。 (好象現在女士不願意你這麼做,特別是那些女權主義者,我還記得這麼一段話:一個女士對一個讓她先行的男士說:You do this because I am a woman? 那個男士回答說:I do this not because you are a woman but because I am a man! I love this guy!

2. I just couldn’t help it.我就是忍不住。想想看,這樣一個漂亮的句子可用於多少個場合?下面是隨意舉的一個例子:
I was deeply moved by the film and I cried and cried. I just couldn’t help it.
太棒的句子了,我愛死它了。:)
