1.     I've got to quiet down and get focused.  我该冷静下来,集中注意力。You need to stay focused. 你应该集中精力。

2.     说一个人很紧张,我们一般会说“nervous”,口语里的说法:

a)     edgy: You are so edgy. Relax, man. 你太紧张了,放松一点,老兄。The performers were edgy as they waited for the show to begin. 演出开始前,演员们紧张得要命。

b)     taut: He was looking taut and anxious. 他看上去很紧张焦虑。

c)      下面另有两条描述“紧张”。

3.     punchy有两个意思:

a)     紧张,激动:I think I need to stop staring at his name. I’m getting punchy. But I still don’t have the nerve to ask him out. 我不能再盯着看他的名字,我有点控制不住了,但是我还是害怕去约他。

b)     He is a little bit punchy. 如果一个人晚上睡眠不足,早晨起来睡眼惺忪的样子,我们可以说他punchy。所以可以接着说:He needs a cup of coffee to wake up. 他得喝杯咖啡提提神。punchy就是一个人看上去云里雾里的样子,与喝醉酒貌差不多。

4.     Her mouth was dry, there were butterflies in her stomach, and her knees were shaking so much it was hard to walk on stage.她嘴里发燥,紧张万分,双腿颤抖,走不到台前。Today I met this wonderful girl. She gives me butterflies in my tummy. 今天我遇见了一位令我销魂的女孩。她让我全身都激动不已。tummy是stomoch 的口语词。butterflies in one’s stomoch,胃里有蝴蝶乱舞,表示激动,坐立不安。I am having butterflies in my stomoch just at the thought that I have to speak before the group. 一想到我要在大家面前讲话,我就坐立不安了。

5.     Thank you for .....(the tea, cake, movie), and everything else.  谢谢你的(茶水、糕点、电影),以及一切。当你向人道谢时,你一下只想起了一、两件具体的事,但又接受了不止一项的好处,就加上一句 and everything else,这样就不会漏谢什么了。

6.     Everyone else does it. 大家都这么做呀!(给自己找借口下台的说辞)或者说:But all the other people are doing it. Well, everyone does it that way.这话又可以说成:If everyone else does it, it must be OK. 如果人人都这么干的话,那肯定是没有问题啦。Try to do things the same way everyone else does them. 你得照大家做的方式去做。也就是When you are in Rome, do as Romans do.

7.     You look concerned.   What's on your mind    你看上去有点心思沉沉,在担心什么呢?“心情沉重”也可以说,a heavy heart。With a heavy heart, I want to tell you that your father just passed away. 我带着沉重的心情告诉你,你父亲刚刚过世。但记得不能说You look heavy. look heavy的意思是“看起来有点胖”,这是大家,特别是女人不喜欢听的话。

8.     He is feeling very down! 他心情很不好!down-time or downtime 有两个意思:

a)     死机。Computer downtime can result from numerous circumstances such as viruses and so on. 导致电脑死机的原因很多,比如病毒,等等。

b)     中间的休息时间,休闲。休闲按摩:downtime message. a downtime bar, 休闲酒吧。

9.     I know he has the blues, but it doesn't mean he can vent his anger on me. 我知道他心情不好,但他也不能把气发在我身上呀。the blues 心情不好,If a girl is sad, an ice-cream cone can normally chase the blues away. 如果女孩心情不好的话,给她一个冰淇淋,她就会转哭为笑了。也可说,An ice-cream cone can normally help shake off the blues. shake off 与chase away是一个意思,都是“赶走”之意。

10. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. 骆驼穿过针的眼,比财主进神的国,还容易呢。这是记录在马可福音第十章里耶稣的一段话。有些人读了这话产生误解,认为耶稣在仇富。其实不是这样,耶稣不过是在教导我们不要以财富为生命中最为重要的东西,而富人往往会以财富为人生最高目的。
