学习本土英语人士表达

2018年6月22日 18:01:00

很多情况下,中国人学习英语更多的是以学习正式的书面英语表达为基础的,不论是学校教学还是课外的英语学习培训班。因为更多的目的是为了出国留学、移民或者商务往来合作。这样的英语适用场合更多的是以官方形式呈现的,很多人英语可以学习的很好,但是未必能够像本土英语人士一样随心随心性地道的陈述自己想表达的。现在教搭伙儿如何把自己的英语练习的跟本土生长在英语国家的人士一样。


1、中文时常有一句话“夹着尾巴做人”,其实是要求做人做事低调谦卑,不惹是非。

英语:Behave yourself (请检点一点,行为规矩些)-------夹着尾巴做人

4、中文形容颜色黑白分明,黑白颜色交错间隔,黑白条纹相间

6、中文看到某事某物,欲望无限,直流口水

A baby boomer generation is reaching retirement age and there are not enough young people to replace it.许多亚洲国家存在人口老龄化和出生率降低的问题,这就有可能触发潜在的社会巨变和经济巨变,问题究竟何在?因为婴儿潮出生的一代人已经接近退休年龄,却没有足够的年轻人代替他们。


9、中文形容两种事物有着根本属性的区别和差异,跟不不相同
