  大家可能都知道to take a walk就是散步。但是, to take a walk还有另外一个意思,并不是讲话的人邀请你一起去散步。刚好相反,是非常不客气的一句话。它的意思是:“出去”或“滚开”。所以,to take a walk作为俗语的时候要特别小心,一定要听说话人的语气。下面这个例子里讲话的人正在发很大的脾气,对他讲话的对象毫不客气。
  
  例句1: I don't want to listen to any more silly advice on how to run my life. Go on, take a walk - get out of here! I'm tired of looking at your stupid face!
  
  别再告诉我应该怎么管理我的生活,我不要听了。走,你给我出去,滚出去!看见你那张丑脸我就烦。
  
  我们再来举一个例子。这是一个人在对他的合伙人讲话。这个合伙人经常通过一些小动作来欺诈他,因此他决定和他散伙。
  
  例句2: I'm tired of all your lies! You've cheated me too many times and I no longer want to be partners with you. So take a walk - I never want to see you again!
  
  我已经听够了你的谎话。你多次欺骗我,我现在不要再跟你合作了。你走吧,我以后再也不想见到你了。

  很小的时候就听身边的人说过“人靠衣装,马靠鞍”这句话,说的是其貌不扬的人穿上华丽的衣装后也会显得耀眼夺目这样一个常理。所以,在我们的周围,每个人都在make up,都试图通过外表的装扮提升自己的形象。可是,藏在makeup下太久,大家都不太记得彼此最真实的样子了。于是,有些勇敢的人开始尝试makeunder。你已经大概猜到makeunder是什么了,对不对?
  
  Makeunder refers to a change of appearance in which a person is given a simpler look, especially one with little or no makeup and a basic hairstyle.
  
  Makeunder(素面朝天)指某人一改往日形象,只化淡妆或不化妆、也不做发型的样子。
  
  羡慕啊,人家都是化妆是本事,不化妆叫追求,小涵只有一个选择: makeunder! 诚邀会make up 的耳朵加小涵QQ,也教小涵两招,远离makeunder!

  在很多影视作品中,我们都看到过以强欺弱的画面,可能是在监狱、在学校或者在工厂。这样的欺凌行为在英语中统称为bullying,而发出这样行为的人就是bully。今天我们要说的,是在职场处处为难别人的workplace bully。
  If you are often humiliated, belittled or called names by a colleague, you could be facing a workplace bully. The bully’s remarks and actions may seem harmless at first but they are meant to be offensive and to show you in a poor light.
  
  如果你频繁被某个同事羞辱、蔑视或者辱骂,你面对的可能是一个“职场霸王”。这位“霸王”的言行起初可能并不会对你造成伤害,但其中的冒犯之意是显而易见的,而且会让你处于弱势地位。
  
  Here are five situations a bully might put you in:
  以下是常见的五种“霸王”行径:
  
  1. Constant prodding at meetings
  Some bullies take pleasure in interrupting you when you are making a presentation or are talking in an important meeting. They may ask questions unrelated to the presentation, or questions that could have waited till the end.
  1. 在会议上处处针对你
  有些“职场霸王”喜欢在你做演示或在重要会议上发言时打断你,并以此为乐。他们可能会问一些跟演示无关的问题,或者问一些本来可以等到会议结束时再问的问题。
  
  2. Taking credit for your work
  Another tactic that a bully might use is to take credit for your work.
  2. 抢走你的工作成果
  他们的另一个策略是把你的工作成果据为己有。
  
  3. Burdening you with extra work
  Newcomers to an organization sometimes get stuck with work over and above their job description.
  3. 给你指派很多额外的工作
  新进人员有时候会被很多职责范围以外的工作所负累。
  
  4. Jokes at your expense
  If your colleague often makes fun of you or passes sarcastic remarks about you or your work, it may be more than just banter.
  4. 拿你开涮
  如果你的同事时常取笑你,或者对你或你的工作冷嘲热讽,这些可能并不仅仅是玩笑话。
  
  5. Indecent remarks
  Women at work sometimes have to hear indecent remarks or put up with glances that make them uncomfortable.
  5. 下流言论
  职场女性时不时会听到一些下流的言论,或者遭遇让她们不自在的眼神

  请看《中国日报》的报道:
  
  Illegal acts prohibited by the regulations include price-fixing agreements and excluding or limiting competition through abuse of dominant market share, according to the regulations.
  
  根据该法规,签订限价协议以及滥用在市场的垄断地位来排除或限制竞争等违法行为将被禁止。
  
  在上面的报道中,price-fixing指的是“限价”或“价格垄断”,即垄断厂商凭借自身的垄断地位,为谋求自身利益最大化而制定垄断高价或垄断低价的行为。“价格垄断”也可以用price monopoly来表示。垄断厂商可通过price-rigging(操纵价格)获得monopoly profit(垄断利润)。
  
  发改委推出反价格垄断新法规就是为了进一步限制这种anti-competition behavior(反竞争行为),打击speculation and hoarding(囤积居奇)和price collusion(合谋定价)等活动。

  :Amy,你有时间吗?
  
  A:Sure,什么事?
  
  C:Todd这个人真是很奇怪。有时候,我打电话给他,他明明在办公室里,而且也不忙,可他就是不接电话。我只好在电话里给他留言,可他好几个小时才回电话,有时根本就不回。
  
  A:How does that make you feel?
  
  C:让我觉得自己无足轻重。我不愿意跟他共事。
  
  A:That happens when we use voice mail to hide from other people. Voice mail makes it easy to ignore callers.
  
  C:我有的时候也不接电话,让打电话的人留言,比如手头工作急着要完成的时候。Is that wrong?
  
  A:No. That's a perfect reason to use voice mail. All of us have times when we need to work without interruption.
  
  C:可是有些人从来不接电话,电话打过去,一定是留言。这样下次谁还会找你呢?
  
  A:没错。It doesn't take long for people to determine who is responsive and values their callers, and they call those people instead.
  
  C:他们这样做不仅会得罪人,还会失去很多机会。我倒要看看,这个Todd什么时候才会回我的电话。
  
  ******
  
  Amy第二天午饭时间又遇到了陈豪。
  
  A:CH, I am curious. Did Todd ever call you back yesterday?
  
  C:NO. 他一直没给我回电话。我觉得他这样做非常不礼貌。
  
  A:Totally rude. It is quite one thing to use your voice mail when you can't be interrupted, but to use it
  
  all day for your own convenience is disrespectful of other people and their time.
  
  C:这确实是对我的一种不尊重。说实话,如果能从别人那里得到我需要的信息,我以后是不会再去找他的。我觉得Todd不是那种能愉快共事的人。
  
  A:There are people who think that they are too important to answer their own phone and always use voice mail or someone else to answer for them.
  
  C:不过,据我所知,一些非常成功的人士反倒有时间亲自接电话。Amy, 一般情况下,我们什么时候可以让别人留言而不失礼呢?
  
  A:Send your calls to voice mail when you have someone in your office, when you need to concentrate on a project or when you are away from your desk.
  
  C:噢,办公室里正好有人在谈事儿的时候,手头有工作赶着要完成的时候,或是不在办公室的时候,这些时候都可以让别人在电话上留言。
  
  A:Otherwise, if your job or your business depends on relationships with other people, make yourself available.
  
  C:对呀,不管是谁,打电话都希望能找到自己要找的人。

  工作忙,压力大,很多人都眼看着年假过期也不能休。可对于有些人来说,在百忙中哪怕能抽出一天的时间,他们也要出去好好放松一下。于是,“纳米假日”就应运而生了。
  
  
  Nanobreak is typically a very short, i.e. overnight holiday, preferably somewhere quite exotic, which is becoming increasingly popular amongst people in the UK who want or need a holiday despite the credit crunch and despite having very little free time.
  
  Nanobreak(纳米假日)指在居住地以外、颇具情调或迷人风景的地方度过的一个短暂假日,这种假日很短,通常都只在目的地逗留一晚。在那些饱受信贷危机困扰,也少有闲暇时间,但仍然渴望假期的英国人当中,纳米假日越来越受欢迎。
  
  For example:
  
  There has been a 29% increase in the number of UK holidaymakers searching for nanobreaks over the past year.
  
  去年,英国度假者中搜索纳米假日的人数增加了29%。

  Hello,大家好!现在80后已经进入而立之年,大多80后都是让父母骄傲的一代,但是也不乏一些“啃老族”的产生。啃老族也叫“吃老族”或“傍老族”。“啃老族”年龄都在23-30岁之间,他们并非找不到工作,而是主动放弃了就业的机会,赋闲在家,不仅衣食住行全靠父母,而且花销往往不菲。社会学家称之为“新失业群体”。
  
  在英国英语中,我们用“NEET”来指啃老族的一员,“NEET group”指啃老族群体。“NEET”实际上是“Not Currently Engaged in Education, Employment or Training ”或“Not in Education, Employment or Training”的缩略语。来看例句: In Japan, more and more young people have joined in the Neet group who neither go to college nor go to work.(越来越多的日本青年加入到既不上学又不工作的啃老族。)在美国英语则常用“boomerang child/kid”来表示啃老族。Boomerang本来是指澳大利亚土著居民的飞镖,叫回飞镖。也就是扔出去又自己飞回来的镖,多贴切啊,家长辛辛苦苦培养孩子希望他出去立下事业,结果孩子又跑回来吃父母。不过也不能都怪孩子,都是月亮惹的货啊!好了,接着看例句:The boomerang child returned home to live with his parents after graduating from the university.这个啃老族在大学毕业之后,回到家中与父母住在一起。
  
  好了,啃老族的介绍就到这里,祝愿所有的耳朵们都成为父母的骄傲,耳朵们再见

  好吧,那今天我们就来说说寒潮吧。
  
  Cold snap brings snow---Beijing's first snowfall this winter, which began on Saturday night and lasted until Sunday afternoon, surprised locals.
  
  寒潮带来降雪——北京今冬的初雪让当地居民颇感意外。这场雪从上周六晚间一直持续到周日下午。
  
  这儿的cold snap,迅猛的寒冷就是指“寒潮”。Cold snap是指strong cold air(强冷空气)由亚洲大陆西部或西北部侵袭中国时的强降温天气过程,一般多发生在秋末、冬季、初春时节。Cold snap地面高压的前端一般都有一条cold front(冷锋,冷空气前锋)。据了解,为缓解干旱,有关部门可以进行weather modification人工影响天气作业。
  
  耳朵们要多穿衣服,出门戴好手套围巾帽子,全城保暖抵抗cold snap!

  有句古语叫“谋事在人,成事在天”,说的是很多事情都有定数,并不是付出了努力就一定能达到目的的。这句话跟我们今天的话题很搭,我们要说的就是“顺其自然”的英文表达。
  
  
  
  1. Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you.
  
  
  
  
  别自找麻烦了,顺其自然吧。
  
  
  
  2. Some of us like to have our future mapped out, others like to go with the flow.
  
  
  
  有些人喜欢规划未来,有些人喜欢顺其自然。
  
  
  
  3. It's best to take the world as you find it, then you won't be disappointed.
  
  
  
  还是顺其自然最好,这样,你就不会失望了。
  
  
  
  4. Be that as it may, I'll leave it as it is.
  
  
  
  无论如何我们也只能听其自然。
  
  
  
  5. Since there is nothing we can do, why notlet nature take its course?
  
  
  
  既然我们无能为力,何不顺其自然呢?
  
  
  
  6. Your opposition won't make any difference, just let it be.
  
  
  
  你反对也不能起什么作用,顺其自然吧。
  
  
  
  7. We will cross the bridge until we come to it.
  
  
  
  走一步看一步吧,顺其自然。
  
  
  
  8. Whatever will be, will be.
  
  
  
  万事不必苛求,顺其自然。

  面 试 篇
  
  
  
  
  
  1、描述你的优缺点
  
  
  
  
  
  现在就业市场竞争越来越激烈,要在日趋激烈的竞争中立于不败之地,成为永远的"胜利者",就必须能说一口流利的求职英语,掌握"面试技巧"。提高面试技巧的关键就在于对面试官所要提出的问题做到胸有成竹。
  
  
  我们通过对大量面试资料的分析,发现一些典型的问题在各种面试中反复出现,恰恰是这些看似平常的问题使许多应聘者失去了得到理想工作的机会。所以在面试篇中,我们将逐个对这些常见的面试问题进行讲解,并提供得体应答例句。相信面试篇能助您充满信心地在面试中侃侃而谈,在最激烈的竞争中脱颖而出。
    下面就让我们开始第一课的学习,本课的重点词汇和句型
  
  major         主要的
  
  
  strength        优点
  
  
    self-motivated     自我激励的
  
  
    weakness       缺点
  
  
    half-done       未完成的,半成的
  
  
    solution        解决办法
  
  
    spend sometime in doing sth.    做某事花费了一些时间
  
  
    leisure time      休闲时间
  
  
  
  
  
  WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR MAJOR STRENGTH/ WEAKNESS?
  
  
  "您认为您的最主要的优点是什么?最主要的缺点是什么?"
  
  
  这是主考官们乐于提及的问题。通过您对这个问题的回答,主考官可以了解您的品质、个性、工作态度、工作方法等众多方面的问题;同时,他也想知道您都有哪些弱点,这些弱点是不是会影响到您的工作。
  
  
  下面我们就一起分析一下这个问题。  
  
  
     1.What do you consider your major strength?
  
  
      May also be: What are you best at?
  
  
    
  
  
  你最主要的优点是什么?或是:你最擅长什么?
  
  
  注意如果主考官这样问你,这样的问题隐含的意思是"你能给我们公司做出怎样的贡献",所以千万不要回答说自己擅长音乐或体育,而是要突出自己的最优秀的品质,作为雇主,是比较乐意接受有下列品质的雇员的:
  
  
     A. self-motivated
  
  
     (具有"自我激励"的品质会不断使你在工作中取得进步)
  
  
     B. hard working and honest
  
  
     (所有的雇主都喜欢"努力而诚实"的人,无论交付什么事情,都能让老板放心)
  
  
     C. look for better ways of doing the work
  
  
      (这证明你是个爱思考而且聪明的人,总是"寻找更好的做事方法")
  
  
     D.good interpersonal relationships
  
  
     (这说明你有很好的人际关系,如果你本事再大,却和同事们和不来,也会让老板十分头疼的)
  
  
  
  
  
  总的看来,在回答你的优点的时候,努力向上述四个方面靠拢是比较稳妥的!
  
  
    当然,你也可以把这些优点综合起来说:
  
  
   "I do believe I possess lots of strengths. First, I have formed a habit of working under great pressure, I am a hard working man; Second, I am independent, and always try to use my own methods to solve problems; Third, I am honest."
  
  
  
  
  
    "我觉得我有很多优势。首先,我养成了在巨大压力下工作的习惯,工作也非常努力;还有,我工作是比较有独立性的,总是想用自己的方法来解决问题;再者,我也很诚实。"
  
  
    面试官听到你有这么多他们所需要的优点,一定会对你留下更深的印象。
  
  
  2.现在我们再来看看如果老板问你:
  
  
    "What do you consider your major weakness?"
  
  
    (你最主要的缺点是什么)
    千万要小心,这里不要太实事求是地回答你的真实缺点,而要巧妙地在回答中体现出"你的缺点其实也是个优点",这听起来有点难办,不过记住下面这个例子就可以让老板感觉到"你的缺点还是
  
  蛮可爱"的嘛:
  
  
  "I cannot leave a job half-done and usually find myself thinking of possible solutions to problems while I am driving to work or in the shower. I also know I spend too much time in my work., I can't get enough leisure time."
  
  
    让我们先来分析一下你的缺点:先你不会把工作做了一半就不管了,你会在开车上班的路上或在淋浴的时候都在思考工作。其次你也觉得自己在工作上花太多的心思,而没有了休闲的时间"。这样的"缺点"听起来还挺宝贵的呢。
  
  
    要记住这段话,还要将几个句式熟记才行:
  
  
    首先是leave 在这里表示"让(人、)物维持在某种状态";
  
  
    half-done自然代表着"未完成的,半成的";
  
  
    那么在工作中遇到了问题自然你要想办法解决,所以solution 这个表示"解决"的词自然是很受青睐,solution to/for/of都是可以的。
  
  
    比如说公司的财务陷入了危机,有人就可能建议说:
  
  
    Economy might be the solution to our financial troubles.
  
  
    意思是"节约可能是我们解决财务问题的办法"。
  
  
    而spend sometime in doing sth. 的句式是我们都很熟悉的了,
  
  
    leisure time着重于表示"从工作中解放出来而进行休息、娱乐"的时间,据说"不会休息的人就不会更好地工作",但是在老板眼中,还是希望员工们多多地工作的哦!
  
  
     对于这个问题的回答,不知你是否心中有数了?其实面试是有很多学问的,我们会在以后不断学到,今天就到这里吧!
  
  
  
  
  
   2、更换工作的原因
  
  
  
  
  
  如果您想"跳槽"到另外一家公司,一般来说,该公司的面试官会想到:"他为什么想离开现在的公司?","他想到我们这儿的原因是什么?"。这一课,我们就来看看对这种问题如何回答比较合适。
  
  
  首先,我们来跟外教朗读本课的重点词汇和句型。
  
  
  room         空间、余地、机会
  
  
    There is room for...   留有……余地
  
  
    career        事业、生涯
  
  
    promotion       晋升
  
  
    be promoted to ...   晋升到……职位
  
  
    reputation       名声、名誉
  
  
    employee       雇员、职工
  
  
    benefit        福利
  
  
  
  
  
  WHY DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE YOUR PRESENT JOB?
  
  
  在本课中,我们来讨论一下面试中常见的两个问题:
  
  
  1、Why do you want to leave your present job / previous job?
  
  
  一般来说雇主是非常想知道"为什么你想离开现在的/以前的工作?",虽然你离开原来公司的理由会有很多,比如说和同事和不来啦,被开掉了啦,等等。
  
  
    但是比较稳妥的回答方式是:
  
  
  "你以前的工作干得很好,但似乎没有更多的发展空间和晋升的机会",这样的回答让人感到你的确是个优秀的人才,应该在更大的舞台上发挥自己的能力。
  
  
  你不妨用下面的句子来表达你的意思:
    There is no room for my career growth and promotion I want in my previous job. So I'm looking for a company which recognizes and rewards hard workers.
  
     room表示"空间、余地、机会"等意思,所以在想表示"留有……的余地"的时候,不妨记住用There is room for...这个句式,如果你的上司对你说:
  
  
     There is room for improvement in your work, It is not as good as it could be.
  
  
     这句话的意思是"你的工作还有改进的余地",看来你可得卖力气地干活了!
  
  
    工作上人人都渴望得到晋升,所以一定要熟知promotion这个词,获得晋升可以说成是 win promotion 或者 gain promotion。 而它的动词 promote 则是个及物动词,"某某人被晋升到某某位置"的表示形式是be promoted to ...,造个句子巩固一下对这个词的记忆吧:
  
  
    She was promoted to manager of the new workshop.
  
  
    现在你已经掌握了一个说明离职原因的最佳例句,接着让我们再来看两个可供选择的回答方式:
  
  
    1.My reason for leaving my present employer is that I am desirous of getting broader experience in trading.
  
  
      我离职的理由是: 希望在贸易方面,能获得更广泛的经验。
  
  
    2.I am leaving my present job in order to improve my position and have more responsibility.
  
  
      我因为希望获得更高的职位负更多的责任,而离开现职。
  
  
  2、What is it about this job that interests you? / Why do you want to join our company?
  
  
    这项工作有什么地方让你感兴趣?你为什么想加入我们的公司?
  
  
    对这样的问题,你不妨做下面的回答:
  
  
    Your company enjoys a good reputation in this field. I've heard you take care of your employees and offer good salaries and benefits.
  
  
    一般来说,先说上一个赞扬公司的句子是能够让面试官比较开心的,而reputation 是"名声、名誉"的意思,所以enjoy a good reputation或者have a good reputation都是个不错的表达,当然你还可以说:
  
  
    Your company is well respected in this field. I have heard nothing but good things about your company.
  
  
    夸奖了公司的声誉之后,你不妨再说说公司在对员工方面的待遇,其实这常常是很多人选择公司的重要标准:
  
  
    I've heard you take care of your employees and offer good salaries and benefits.
  
  
     注意benefit的意思除了"受益"之外,还可以表示"公司给员工的福利津贴",而offer 在此表示"提供"。
  
  
     通过本课的学习,你一定对如何回答"离职原因"和"为什么加盟新公司"这两个问题胸有成竹了吧。在下一课中,我们将继续探讨面试中常见的问题,希望你按时参加,从而一步一步地提高自己英语面试的技巧 。
  
  
  
  
  
  3、是否胜任工作
  
  
  
  
  
  应聘一家公司,首先您要具备加入该公司的"资格",这是主考官最容易提到的问题。能否很好地回答这个问题,将在很大程度上决定您的成功与否。
  
  
  本课的重点词汇和句型

  WHY DO YOU THINK YOU ARE QUALIFIED FOR THIS POSITION?
  
  
  在面试中,面试官最关心的问题莫过于你是否觉得自己适合这项工作,比如:
  
  
  "Why do you think you are qualified for this position?"
  
  
  (您为何觉得您有资格做这个职位?)
  
  
    这是考察你能力的最常见问题。 对于这样的问题,该怎么从容应对呢?下面我们就来共同探讨一下最佳的回答方式。
  
  
  首先要确定这个问题的重点在哪里。既然面试官提到"有什么资格",您肯定要围绕"资格"先作一下文章:
  
  
  "I graduated from Beijing University in 1993, and hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. Therefore, I have a firm knowledge background in this field."
  
  
  (我1993年毕业于北京大学,获计算机专业学士学位。所以在此领域我有很扎实的基本功。)
  
  
  
  
  
  经您介绍自己的学历背景,面试官对您开始感兴趣了,因为您所学的东西正是他们所需要的. 但是由于现在的竞争越来越激烈,即便是在自己所学的领域内,可供用人单位挑选的人也有很多,所以,您下一步要提出自己的"working experience"(工作经验):
  
  
  "I have spent the last 3 years working specially in this field. I think I can bring a lot of experience and knowledge with me."
  
  
  (我在这个领域内干过3年,我想我能将我的知识与经验带给贵公司。)
  
  
  
  
  
  主考官一看,呵,你还是满有经验的嘛!你可别小看这一点,"对口"的经验是目前各用人单位特别重视的一点,如果您可以将很多的专业经验带给公司,公司岂不是很乐意? 但他们还有一点不太放心:您是否自信。他们可能会接着问:
  
  
  "Do you think you are the right person for the job?"
  
  
  (您认为您是这个职位的最佳人选吗?)
  
  
    这时,您要给他一个最简单、最明确的答复,同时给出理由:
  
  
  "Yes. Because I do believe that my qualifications and experience perfectly match what you are looking for."
  
  
  (是的。因为我确信我的素质和经验能够很好地满足贵公司的需要。)
  
  
  或者说:
  
  
  "Yes. Because I have the experience you are looking for,and think I will be one of the best in this field."
  
  
  (是的.因为我有贵公司所需要的东西,并且自信我能成为这个领域中最优秀的员工之一。)
  
  
  这样,面试官就更放心了,因为您的答复说明您非常自信,完全能胜任这项工作。接下来他要考虑:您是否有吃苦的精神呢?  
  
  
  "Do you know what's involved in a position like this?"
  
  
  (您知道我们这个职位是要付出很大的努力的吗?)   
  
  
  您可以再给他一个明确的答复:  
  
  
  "Yes. I know exactly what's involved. I am a hard worker and will perform to the best of my ability."  
  
  
  (我完全明白您的意思。我工作也很努力,并且会尽力发挥我的力量。)
  您看, 您有扎实的知识基础、有相关的经验、富有自信心及吃苦耐劳的品性。主考官不选择您,还能选择谁呢? OK,今天对"资格"问题的讨论暂且至此,下次我们来讨论另一个焦点问题:"薪金待遇"。

  面 试 篇
  
  
  
  
  
  1、描述你的优缺点
  
  
  
  
  
  现在就业市场竞争越来越激烈,要在日趋激烈的竞争中立于不败之地,成为永远的"胜利者",就必须能说一口流利的求职英语,掌握"面试技巧"。提高面试技巧的关键就在于对面试官所要提出的问题做到胸有成竹。
  
  
  我们通过对大量面试资料的分析,发现一些典型的问题在各种面试中反复出现,恰恰是这些看似平常的问题使许多应聘者失去了得到理想工作的机会。所以在面试篇中,我们将逐个对这些常见的面试问题进行讲解,并提供得体应答例句。相信面试篇能助您充满信心地在面试中侃侃而谈,在最激烈的竞争中脱颖而出。
    下面就让我们开始第一课的学习,本课的重点词汇和句型
  
  major         主要的
  
  
  strength        优点
  
  
    self-motivated     自我激励的
  
  
    weakness       缺点
  
  
    half-done       未完成的,半成的
  
  
    solution        解决办法
  
  
    spend sometime in doing sth.    做某事花费了一些时间
  
  
    leisure time      休闲时间
  
  
  
  
  
  WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR MAJOR STRENGTH/ WEAKNESS?
  
  
  "您认为您的最主要的优点是什么?最主要的缺点是什么?"
  
  
  这是主考官们乐于提及的问题。通过您对这个问题的回答,主考官可以了解您的品质、个性、工作态度、工作方法等众多方面的问题;同时,他也想知道您都有哪些弱点,这些弱点是不是会影响到您的工作。
  
  
  下面我们就一起分析一下这个问题。  
  
  
     1.What do you consider your major strength?
  
  
      May also be: What are you best at?
  
  
    
  
  
  你最主要的优点是什么?或是:你最擅长什么?
  
  
  注意如果主考官这样问你,这样的问题隐含的意思是"你能给我们公司做出怎样的贡献",所以千万不要回答说自己擅长音乐或体育,而是要突出自己的最优秀的品质,作为雇主,是比较乐意接受有下列品质的雇员的:
  
  
     A. self-motivated
  
  
     (具有"自我激励"的品质会不断使你在工作中取得进步)
  
  
     B. hard working and honest
  
  
     (所有的雇主都喜欢"努力而诚实"的人,无论交付什么事情,都能让老板放心)
  
  
     C. look for better ways of doing the work
  
  
      (这证明你是个爱思考而且聪明的人,总是"寻找更好的做事方法")
  
  
     D.good interpersonal relationships
  
  
     (这说明你有很好的人际关系,如果你本事再大,却和同事们和不来,也会让老板十分头疼的)
  
  
  
  
  
  总的看来,在回答你的优点的时候,努力向上述四个方面靠拢是比较稳妥的!
  
  
    当然,你也可以把这些优点综合起来说:
  
  
   "I do believe I possess lots of strengths. First, I have formed a habit of working under great pressure, I am a hard working man; Second, I am independent, and always try to use my own methods to solve problems; Third, I am honest."
  
  
  
  
  
    "我觉得我有很多优势。首先,我养成了在巨大压力下工作的习惯,工作也非常努力;还有,我工作是比较有独立性的,总是想用自己的方法来解决问题;再者,我也很诚实。"
  
  
    面试官听到你有这么多他们所需要的优点,一定会对你留下更深的印象。
  
  
  2.现在我们再来看看如果老板问你:
  
  
    "What do you consider your major weakness?"
  
  
    (你最主要的缺点是什么)
    千万要小心,这里不要太实事求是地回答你的真实缺点,而要巧妙地在回答中体现出"你的缺点其实也是个优点",这听起来有点难办,不过记住下面这个例子就可以让老板感觉到"你的缺点还是
  
  蛮可爱"的嘛:
  
  
  "I cannot leave a job half-done and usually find myself thinking of possible solutions to problems while I am driving to work or in the shower. I also know I spend too much time in my work., I can't get enough leisure time."
  
  
    让我们先来分析一下你的缺点:先你不会把工作做了一半就不管了,你会在开车上班的路上或在淋浴的时候都在思考工作。其次你也觉得自己在工作上花太多的心思,而没有了休闲的时间"。这样的"缺点"听起来还挺宝贵的呢。
  
  
    要记住这段话,还要将几个句式熟记才行:
  
  
    首先是leave 在这里表示"让(人、)物维持在某种状态";
  
  
    half-done自然代表着"未完成的,半成的";
  
  
    那么在工作中遇到了问题自然你要想办法解决,所以solution 这个表示"解决"的词自然是很受青睐,solution to/for/of都是可以的。
  
  
    比如说公司的财务陷入了危机,有人就可能建议说:
  
  
    Economy might be the solution to our financial troubles.
  
  
    意思是"节约可能是我们解决财务问题的办法"。
  
  
    而spend sometime in doing sth. 的句式是我们都很熟悉的了,
  
  
    leisure time着重于表示"从工作中解放出来而进行休息、娱乐"的时间,据说"不会休息的人就不会更好地工作",但是在老板眼中,还是希望员工们多多地工作的哦!
  
  
     对于这个问题的回答,不知你是否心中有数了?其实面试是有很多学问的,我们会在以后不断学到,今天就到这里吧!
  
  
  
  
  
   2、更换工作的原因
  
  
  
  
  
  如果您想"跳槽"到另外一家公司,一般来说,该公司的面试官会想到:"他为什么想离开现在的公司?","他想到我们这儿的原因是什么?"。这一课,我们就来看看对这种问题如何回答比较合适。
  
  
  首先,我们来跟外教朗读本课的重点词汇和句型。
  
  
  room         空间、余地、机会
  
  
    There is room for...   留有……余地
  
  
    career        事业、生涯
  
  
    promotion       晋升
  
  
    be promoted to ...   晋升到……职位
  
  
    reputation       名声、名誉
  
  
    employee       雇员、职工
  
  
    benefit        福利
  
  
  
  
  
  WHY DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE YOUR PRESENT JOB?
  
  
  在本课中,我们来讨论一下面试中常见的两个问题:
  
  
  1、Why do you want to leave your present job / previous job?
  
  
  一般来说雇主是非常想知道"为什么你想离开现在的/以前的工作?",虽然你离开原来公司的理由会有很多,比如说和同事和不来啦,被开掉了啦,等等。
  
  
    但是比较稳妥的回答方式是:
  
  
  "你以前的工作干得很好,但似乎没有更多的发展空间和晋升的机会",这样的回答让人感到你的确是个优秀的人才,应该在更大的舞台上发挥自己的能力。
  
  
  你不妨用下面的句子来表达你的意思:
    There is no room for my career growth and promotion I want in my previous job. So I'm looking for a company which recognizes and rewards hard workers.
  
     room表示"空间、余地、机会"等意思,所以在想表示"留有……的余地"的时候,不妨记住用There is room for...这个句式,如果你的上司对你说:
  
  
     There is room for improvement in your work, It is not as good as it could be.
  
  
     这句话的意思是"你的工作还有改进的余地",看来你可得卖力气地干活了!
  
  
    工作上人人都渴望得到晋升,所以一定要熟知promotion这个词,获得晋升可以说成是 win promotion 或者 gain promotion。 而它的动词 promote 则是个及物动词,"某某人被晋升到某某位置"的表示形式是be promoted to ...,造个句子巩固一下对这个词的记忆吧:
  
  
    She was promoted to manager of the new workshop.
  
  
    现在你已经掌握了一个说明离职原因的最佳例句,接着让我们再来看两个可供选择的回答方式:
  
  
    1.My reason for leaving my present employer is that I am desirous of getting broader experience in trading.
  
  
      我离职的理由是: 希望在贸易方面,能获得更广泛的经验。
  
  
    2.I am leaving my present job in order to improve my position and have more responsibility.
  
  
      我因为希望获得更高的职位负更多的责任,而离开现职。
  
  
  2、What is it about this job that interests you? / Why do you want to join our company?
  
  
    这项工作有什么地方让你感兴趣?你为什么想加入我们的公司?
  
  
    对这样的问题,你不妨做下面的回答:
  
  
    Your company enjoys a good reputation in this field. I've heard you take care of your employees and offer good salaries and benefits.
  
  
    一般来说,先说上一个赞扬公司的句子是能够让面试官比较开心的,而reputation 是"名声、名誉"的意思,所以enjoy a good reputation或者have a good reputation都是个不错的表达,当然你还可以说:
  
  
    Your company is well respected in this field. I have heard nothing but good things about your company.
  
  
    夸奖了公司的声誉之后,你不妨再说说公司在对员工方面的待遇,其实这常常是很多人选择公司的重要标准:
  
  
    I've heard you take care of your employees and offer good salaries and benefits.
  
  
     注意benefit的意思除了"受益"之外,还可以表示"公司给员工的福利津贴",而offer 在此表示"提供"。
  
  
     通过本课的学习,你一定对如何回答"离职原因"和"为什么加盟新公司"这两个问题胸有成竹了吧。在下一课中,我们将继续探讨面试中常见的问题,希望你按时参加,从而一步一步地提高自己英语面试的技巧 。
  
  
  
  
  
  3、是否胜任工作
  
  
  
  
  
  应聘一家公司,首先您要具备加入该公司的"资格",这是主考官最容易提到的问题。能否很好地回答这个问题,将在很大程度上决定您的成功与否。
  
  
  本课的重点词汇和句型
  
  
  computer science     计算机科学
  
  
    knowledge background   知识背景
  
  
    qualification        资格、条件
  
  
    experience         经验
  
  
    involve          包括、潜心于、使陷于
  
  
    perfectly          极佳地、完美地
  
  
    position          职位、位置
  
  WHY DO YOU THINK YOU ARE QUALIFIED FOR THIS POSITION?
  
  
  在面试中,面试官最关心的问题莫过于你是否觉得自己适合这项工作,比如:
  
  
  "Why do you think you are qualified for this position?"

  首先要确定这个问题的重点在哪里。既然面试官提到"有什么资格",您肯定要围绕"资格"先作一下文章:

  (我1993年毕业于北京大学,获计算机专业学士学位。所以在此领域我有很扎实的基本功。)
  
  
  
  
  
  经您介绍自己的学历背景,面试官对您开始感兴趣了,因为您所学的东西正是他们所需要的. 但是由于现在的竞争越来越激烈,即便是在自己所学的领域内,可供用人单位挑选的人也有很多,所以,您下一步要提出自己的"working experience"(工作经验):
  
  
  "I have spent the last 3 years working specially in this field. I think I can bring a lot of experience and knowledge with me."
  
  
  (我在这个领域内干过3年,我想我能将我的知识与经验带给贵公司。)
  
  
  
  
  
  主考官一看,呵,你还是满有经验的嘛!你可别小看这一点,"对口"的经验是目前各用人单位特别重视的一点,如果您可以将很多的专业经验带给公司,公司岂不是很乐意? 但他们还有一点不太放心:您是否自信。他们可能会接着问:
  
  
  "Do you think you are the right person for the job?"
  
  
  (您认为您是这个职位的最佳人选吗?)
  
  
    这时,您要给他一个最简单、最明确的答复,同时给出理由:
  
  
  "Yes. Because I do believe that my qualifications and experience perfectly match what you are looking for."
  
  
  (是的。因为我确信我的素质和经验能够很好地满足贵公司的需要。)
  
  
  或者说:
  
  
  "Yes. Because I have the experience you are looking for,and think I will be one of the best in this field."
  
  
  (是的.因为我有贵公司所需要的东西,并且自信我能成为这个领域中最优秀的员工之一。)
  
  
  这样,面试官就更放心了,因为您的答复说明您非常自信,完全能胜任这项工作。接下来他要考虑:您是否有吃苦的精神呢?

  您可以再给他一个明确的答复:  
  
  
  "Yes. I know exactly what's involved. I am a hard worker and will perform to the best of my ability."  
  
  
  (我完全明白您的意思。我工作也很努力,并且会尽力发挥我的力量。)
  您看, 您有扎实的知识基础、有相关的经验、富有自信心及吃苦耐劳的品性。主考官不选择您,还能选择谁呢? OK,今天对"资格"问题的讨论暂且至此,下次我们来讨论另一个焦点问题:"薪金待遇"。

  你是爱情抢手货吗?
  
  Gone are the days when you were considered a “good catch” if you were gorgeous or you had a fabulous income or if you were good in bed. Today it’s a lot more complex than that. What do singles seek in their prospective partners? Before you brag about yourself, how can you be sure you are a good catch? Read on。
  
  
  
    因为你的长相出众或你的收入不菲或你的床上功夫不俗而被看作“抢手货”的那些日子已经一去不复返了。而今,情况比那会儿更加复杂。单身男女看重未来伴侣的哪些方面呢?在你自吹自擂之前,你如何确保自己是热门人选呢?且听我道来。
  
  
  
    1.Are you available?
  
  
  
    Be sure you are available for a relationship if you are seeking one. If you are addicted to your work or consumed by other interests, you cannot do justice to a budding relationship. Get over your previous relationships, leave behind all emotional baggage and move on!
  
  
  
    1.你是否时刻准备着?
  
  
  
    如果你想双宿双飞,要确保你做好了交往的准备。如果你沉迷于工作或痴迷于其他爱好,你就无法妥善处理萌动的感情。抛开前尘,忘却旧梦,前进吧!
  
  
  
    2.Do you believe in equality in a relationship?
  
  
  
    If you have faith in a give and take relationship, only then can you do justice to one. Both partners need to be at par and willing to compromise for each other for a fulfilling relationship。
  
  
  
    2.你相信举案齐眉方可白头偕老吗?
  
  
  
    只有相信持久的感情要互敬互让,你才能妥善经营好伴侣关系。双方必须平等对待,并且愿意迁就对方,这样的感情才能让彼此满意。
  
  
  
    3.Are you unrealistic?
  
  
  
    Are you a level-headed person or do you have unrealistic expectations for a relationship? If you day-dream about a date straight out of that glamour magazine1 you may not be a good catch! Who will risk trying to fulfill all your “out of this world” dreams?
  
  
  
    3.你是否不切实际?
  
  
  
    你是个稳健的人,还是你对一段感情有不切实际的期望呢?如果你空想着那本魅力杂志上的可人儿走出来与你约会,那你就不可人爱!谁敢冒险去试图满足你那“九霄云外” 的梦想?
  
  
  
  
    4.Are you a fitness freak?
  
  
  
    If your conversation on your first date is going to be all about calories and push-ups, you may be better off in a gym. There are other, more pleasant ways to convey from eromance. matters of the heart. But being health conscious, without being paranoid about it, is definitely a catch. It means you take care of your well-being and you are particular to avoid unhealthy habits and it shows in your great shape! You will make great company。
  
  
  
    4.你是否是个健身狂?
  
  
  
    如果你在初次约会时一直谈卡路里和俯卧撑,那你最好去健身房。的确有一些其他更令人愉悦的方式来说说心里话。但是,注重健康而又不至于神经兮兮,绝对让你受欢迎。这意味着你关心自己的健康,你会特别注意避免不健康的习惯,而且这一切都体现在养眼的体形上!你会是个很棒的伴侣。
  
  
  
    5.Do you value other people’s opinions?
  
  
  
    Even if you disagree with someone, do you respect his opinion? Do you give him a fair opportunity to put across his views? If you believe that nothing but what you say and do is the truth, you are not a good catch. And that is an unbeatable truth。
  
  
  
    5.你是否重视别人的观点?
  
  
  
    即使你和某人意见相左,你尊重他们的观点吗?你会给他们平等的机会去表达自己的看法吗?如果你觉得只有你自己的所言所行正确,你就不是一个抢手货——这是一个不争的事实。
  
  
  
    6.Do you plead for attention?
  
  
  
    If you try desperate means to seek attention, you are not a good catch. Even if you like someone, do not cling to her. Let the attraction be mutual. Allow the affection to grow. Learn to give her some space. Do not be possessive or try to demand her attention。
  
  
  
    6.你会千方百计寻求关注吗?
  
  
  
    如果你花样百出地博取关注,你就不是一个抢手货。即使你喜欢某人,你也不要死缠烂打。让吸引变成相互吸引。允许感情慢慢升温。学习给她一些空间。不要想着占有或者试图要求获得她的注意。
  
  
  
    7.Do you believe in love at first sight?
  
  
  
    Do you dream about an instantaneous attraction, where you would be swept off your feet? Well, it may just turn out to be an infatuation that may fizzle out sooner than you realize. If you are a good catch, you will allow a relationship to evolve and mature over time。
  
  
  
    7.你相信一见钟情吗?
  
  
  
    你是否梦想过瞬间吸引力的发生——被某个人迷得神魂颠倒?嗯,那最终或许只是一时的迷恋——爱火在你意识到之前就迅速冷却。如果你是个抢手货,你会让一段感情慢慢发展,逐渐成熟。
  
  
  
    8.Are you honest?
  
  
  
    Honesty and trust are the pillars of any relationship. Being honest does not mean you go on and on about your obnoxious ex or your passionate one night stand years ago. Be frank about your ambitions, your desires or your expectations. You are a good catch if you are honest and can be trusted。
  
  
  
    8.你是否诚实?
  
  
  
    诚实和信任是任何关系的支柱。诚实并不意味着你要一直唠叨讨厌的前任伴侣或者几年前的那次激情的 。你应该真诚地谈论你的雄心、你的愿望或你的期望。如果你能诚实且被信任,你就是个抢手货。
  
  
  
    9.Do you stand by your values?
  
  
  
    Compromise is the key to a successful relationship, but that does not mean to let go of your principles. You are a good catch if you stand by your values and learn to put your foot down against anything unethical. Being accepted and appreciated for who you areheralds the beginning of a mature relationship。
  
  
  
    9.你是否坚持自己的价值观?
  
  
  
    让步是一段感情成功的关键,但这并不意味着你要放弃自己的原则。如果你能坚持自己的价值观并学会坚决抵制任何有悖道德的事情,你就是一个抢手货。被别人接受和赞赏自己的本色预示着一段成熟感情的开始。
  
  
  
    10.Are you independent?
  
  
  
    Being in a relationship does not mean you need help and support from your partner in all that you do. Are you competent enough to tackle all your problems on your own? You are a good catch if you are self-reliant.  
  
  
  
    10.你是否独立?
  
  
  
    与人交往并不意味着你需要对方帮助并支持你所做的任何事。你是否有足够的能力独自解决自己的所有困难?如果你是一个独立自主的人,你就是一个抢手货。

    二:30% men weep under pressure
    
     A survey by Zhaopin.com on 6000 men before Father’s Day has shown that more than 30% of men in China have shed流下 tears because of work pressure. The survey found that career men aged between 41 and 50 suffer most from pressure, with 55.6% of them saying it is too heavy to bear.
    
     调查:男性压力大也落泪
    
    据智联招聘2009年父亲节特别调查,近6000名受访的男性中,超过3成曾因工作压力而流泪。调查结果显示41-50岁职场男性感受的各方面压力感最大,他们中55.6%的人认为压力比较大已经难以承受。
    三:forced relocation
    But forced relocation will be used if necessary so that the self-interests of a handful of people will not hurt the interests of the majority, said Zhang Qiong, deputy director of the State Council委员会 Legislative 立法的Affairs Office.
    
     暴力拆迁
    国务院法制办副主任张穹说,如果必要的话还是会采取强制拆迁的方式,这样才不会因为少数人的利益而影响到大多数人的利益。
      在上面的短文中,forced relocation就是“强制拆迁”或“暴力拆迁”。更完整的说法是forced demolition and relocation。Relocation的意思是“迁移至新地点,重新安置”,动词形式为relocate。
    例如:Many companies are seriously considering relocating elsewhere in Asia.许多公司正在认真考虑迁移到亚洲的其他地方去。
    如果指的是迁移到国外居住,即“移民”,则用migrate,例如:My best friend is going to migrate.我最好的朋友要移民了。
    
    中国房地产业的运作存在着许多不完善的地方,因此才会存在forced expropriation 征收of land暴力征地
    house with limited property rights小产权房
    vacant property闲置地产。
    四: sandwich class
    Applications commenced 开始yesterday in response to the Hong Kong Housing Society’s plans to sell sandwich-class flats in Tseung Kwan O for singles and families. The flats are priced 23 percent below market value.
    
     夹心层
    香港房屋委员会计划面向单身人士和家庭出售将军澳地区的“夹心阶层住屋”,申请已于昨日开始。这些公寓的售价比市价要低23%。
    文中的sandwich-class flat就是指“夹心阶层住屋”,sandwich class就是我们常说的“夹心层”,Sandwich这个词很形象地形容出了“夹心”的困境。
    如今,post-80s generation(“80后”一代人)很多已结婚生子,成为了名副其实的sandwich generation(三明治一代,既要赡养老人,又要抚养下一代的人)。  
  五:World’s mega巨大的-rich adding wealth, Carlos Slim No. 1
     Mexican tycoon大亨 Carlos Slim is the world’s richest person, knocking Microsoft founder Bill Gates into second spot, as the wealth of the world’s billionaires grew by 50 percent over the last year, Forbes magazine said on Wednesday.
    
     西哥大亨取代盖茨 成世界首富
    福布斯》杂志本周三发布年度富豪榜,墨西哥大亨卡洛斯•斯利姆取代微软公司创始人比尔•盖茨,成为世界首富,盖茨屈居第二。据统计,全球亿万富翁的资产总额在过去一年中增加了50%。
  六:career bottleneck
    Women have come to a career bottleneck, Yang Lan, a CPPCC member and popular TV presenter主持人, said in an interview with cnr.cn. The number of women decision-makers in companies is far from enough. It is not because they don’t have opportunities or they are unqualified.
    
     职业瓶颈
    政协委员、著名电视节目主持人杨澜在中国广播网的访谈中表示,在职业发展中,女性职业有瓶颈。在企事业高管层面,女性的代表性还是远远不够。这并不是因为她们没有机会或能力不够。
    career bottleneck就是“职业瓶颈”。
    Bottleneck的意思是“瓶颈”,喻指“僵局,阻碍进展的情况”,例如:a bottleneck in production(生产上的障碍)。Bottleneck也可以作动词用,意思是“阻碍,堵塞”,
    例如:His request was bottlenecked for 2 months.(他的要求已被搁置两个月了。)
    
    在形容女性在工作中的发展瓶颈时,我们还可以经常见到一个词,就是glass ceiling(玻璃天花板),通常专指女性在工作升迁中所遭遇的一种无形的障碍,使其不能到达较高阶层。在全世界范围内gender discrimination(性别歧视)依然存在。
    在承认gender gap(性别差异)的前提下,我们要致力于实现gender equality(性别平等)。
    七:China model
    Up until today, China’s political and economic system has yet to be perfected, and the "China model" is evolving进化的、展开的 based on world and Chinese experiences.
    
     中国模式
    直到今日,中国的政治和经济体制仍需要进一步完善,“中国模式”正在世界和本国的经验基础上不断发展。
    文中的China model就是指“中国模式”,概而言之就是新中国建立60年来、尤其是改革开放30年来,逐渐发展起来的一整套战略和治理模式。这是一个内涵丰富的词汇,是中国特色社会主义具体实践的代名词,建立在中国特殊的national conditions(国情)之上,目前仍处于不断发展和完善之中。
    
    Model在这里指“模式,范例”,此外它还可以指“模型、模特”等意思。男孩子喜欢玩aeromodelling(航模),制作scale model(比例模型),而有些小美女们则希望自己长大可以当super model(超模),甚至把她们作为scale model(楷模,行为榜样)。为了省钱,有些人不介意购买商场的floor model(陈列品,家电或家具的样品)。
    八: personal asset declaration
    Li Fei, deputy director of the Legislative Affairs Committee of the National People’ s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, said on Wednesday that legislation requiring public officials to declare their personal assets is under consideration and seen as a move to prevent corruption and improve government transparency.
    
     个人财产申报
    全国人大常委会法制工作委员会副主任李飞本周三称,目前正考虑实施公职人员财产申报制度,这将是防止腐败、增加政府透明度的一项举措。
    文中的 declare personal assets就是指“申报个人财产”,名词形式为personal asset declaration(个人财产申报),也称为asset-declaration system,被誉为反腐的“阳光法案”。但有关方面还指出,要实施personal asset declaration,就必须有配套的personal credit system(个人信用体系)等制度。
    
    Declaration在这里指“申报”,例如纳税人要按规定进行declaration of income tax(个人所得税申报),在海关过境的时候,如果有特殊物品还要进行customs declaration(海关申报)。此外,它最常见的意思是表示“宣告、公告”,企业申请破产时需要发布declaration of bankruptcy(破产公告),两国外交谈判中有时会发布joint declaration(联合声明)。
    九: public diplomacy
    China needs a bigger public diplomacy campaign to better present the country to the world, said Zhao Qizheng, spokesman for the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), on Monday.
    
     公共外交
    全国政协发言人赵启正本周一表示,中国需要大力开展公共外交活动,把中国更好地介绍给世界。
    在上面的报道中,public diplomacy就是“公共外交”。公共外交是指一国政府对国外民众的外交形式,它的活动手段包括文化交流项目、国际广播和互联网等,其主要表达形式是信息和语言。Diplomacy不仅可以表示“外交”,还可以指“(处理人际关系等的)手腕,手段,圆滑,婉转,得体”。例如:He exhibited remarkable diplomacy by not pointing out her mistakes.(他不指出她的缺点,显得非常圆滑。)
    
    从事外交事务的官员为diplomatic officer(外交官),外交官有在国内工作的官员,也包括国外的ambassador(大使)、counselor(参赞)等。外交官享有diplomatic immunity(外交豁免权)。其他不享有外交豁免权的外交人员还有consul(领事)。一个优秀的外交官必须懂得使用diplomatic parlance(外交辞令)。
    十: to rebuild shanty areas
    "We will strive 力争to guarantee that land used for low-income housing, for rebuilding shanty areas and for self-occupied small- or medium-sized houses accounts for占…比 more than 70 percent of the overall supply," said Liao Yonglin, director of the ministry(政府)部、牧师职位’s Department of Land Use and Administration.
    
     棚户区改造
    国土资源部土地利用管理司司长廖永林说:“我们将努力确保保障性住房、棚户区改造,以及自住的中小套型住宅用地占到全部土地供应的70%以上。”
    文中的rebuild shanty areas就是指“棚户区改造”,shanty area就是“棚户区”,指的是城市中结构简陋,抗灾性差,居住拥挤,功能差,居住环境差的房屋集中地,某些urban fringe边缘、刘海、穗 area(城乡结合部)也存在这种情况。
    
    此次国土部还规定, 开发商需支付的guarantee payment for the bidding(竞买保证金)不得低于土地出让价的20%。此外,land hoarding(囤地)也将受到严惩。今年,国土部还将重点清查houses with limited property rights(小产权房)。
    十一 after-sale service
    The 230 million rural households make up a huge consumer group in China and it is of high potential. The current national regulations on after-sale services were made a few years ago. Many consumers have suggested corresponding revisions and improvements.
    
     售后服务
    2.3亿农户是中国一个巨大的消费群体,有很大潜力。现行的关于售后服务的国家法规是几年前制定的。许多消费者都建议进行相应的修订和改进。
    十二:premarital check-up
    Wang Ying, deputy to the NPC and vice-director of Yunnan Dali Health Bureau, has suggested the government encourage premarital health checks. Following the cancellation of compulsive强迫的 premarital婚前check-ups in 2003, fewer people have health checks before getting married and the congenital 天生的defect rate of new born babies is on the steep 急剧的、浸rise, she said during the two sessions.
    
     婚检
    全国人大代表、云南省大理白族自治州卫生局副局长王瑛在两会期间建议,政府应加大婚检宣传力度。王瑛代表表示,自2003年强制婚检取消以后,全国各地婚检率明显下降,而新生儿先天性缺陷的发生率大幅上升。
    在上面的报道中,premarital health check和premarital check-up都是“婚前体检”,简称“婚检”。Premarital意即“婚前的”,比如,premarital cohabitation(婚前同居),premarital agreement(婚前协议)等;check-up在这里是“体格检查”的意思,例如:have a regular check-up(作定期体格检查)。Check-up也可以表示对其他事物的检查,或表示“调查,审查”等意思。例如:The manager gave the store a final check-up before closing for the night.(经理在晚上打烊前对商店做了最后检查。)
    
    如果婚检结果表明双方都健康,则可以放心去marriage registry(结婚登记处)登记结婚,领取marriage certificate(结婚证),并宣读marriage vow(结婚誓词)。现在的newly-weds(新人)一般都会举行wedding ceremony(结婚典礼),摆wedding banquet(喜宴),拍wedding photos(婚纱照)。但如今有许多80后也流行naked wedding(裸婚)。
    十三: charity fraud
    Zhang Ziyi has been criticized for not replying to accusations of charity fraud leveled against her. In an exclusive interview with China Daily, the internationally-celebrated Chinese actress - for the first time - answered some 100 questions, most of which involve details about the money she gave to charity or collected for her own foundation.
    
     诈捐门
    章子怡因一直未对“诈捐”指责做出回应而饱受批评。在接受《中国日报》独家专访时,这位国际巨星首度开口,回答了100多个问题,其中包含她所捐出的善款以及为自己名下的基金会募集资金的细节。
    文中的charity fraud就是指章子怡最近身陷的“诈捐门”,指的是在charity donation/fund-raising drive(慈善募捐)中的一种欺诈行为。除了charity fraud外,生活中我们还可能遭遇tax fraud(骗税)、fake invoice fraud(假发票诈骗)、soccer fraud(假球)、electoral fraud(选举舞弊)等等不同形式的欺诈行为。
    
    “募捐”还有一种很形象的说法,to pass round the hat,是为生活困难的人凑钱物的口语说法。例如:At the club's annual dinner we always pass round the hat to raise money for the various scholarships which the club sponsors.(在俱乐部一年一度的宴会上,我们照例要为俱乐部主办的各种奖学金募捐。)
    十四: public hearing
    Since March, public hearings have been held by some local courts, giving people an opportunity to understand the court's judicial procedures with judges advising them about how to solve their disputes.
    
     听证会
    自三月以来,一些地方法院引入了听证会程序,让人们有机会了解法院的司法程序,法官还会就如何解决纠纷提出建议。
    在上面的报道中,public hearing就是“听证会”,是指初审法院的法官在对案件进行公开审讯前进行的各项中途聆听诉讼各方的申请或陈述、审核相关证据的法定程序。Hold a hearing into/on sth.即“就某事举行听证会”。Hearing也可以表示“审讯,听讯”,例如:condemn somebody without a hearing(不经审讯即给某人定罪)。
    
    实行听证制度有利于实现judicial openness and transparency(司法公开透明),保障judicial justice(司法公正)。今年两会再次提出要继续进行judicial reform(司法改革),加强supervision on the trial process(审判监督),完善trial management system(审判管理机制)。
    
    世界上最遥远的距离
     ---- 泰戈尔
    The furthest distance in the world

    The furthest distance in the world
    Is not when I stand in front of you

    But when undoubtedly knowing the love from both
    Yet cannot be together
    
    世界上最遥远的距离
    不是我站在你面前

    而是感受到对方坚定的爱意
    却不能在一起
    
    The furthest distance in the world
    Is not being apart while being in love
    But when plainly cannot resist the yearning
    Yet pretending you have never been in my heart
    
    世界上最遥远的距离
    不是相爱的人不能在一起
    而是明明不能停止思念
    却装作对方从未走进自己心间
    
    The furthest distance in the world
    Is not but using one’s indifferent heart
    To dig an uncrossible river
    For the one who loves you
    
    世界上最遥远的距离
    是用冷漠的心
    为爱你的人

    这首诗也不错,我一个朋友发给我的

    Because you don’t know how long it will take.
    不要等待,因为,你不知道等待需要花费多少的时间
    
    Remember: Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.
    记得:友谊像醇酒,越久越浓。
  十五:job reshuffle换岗(集体)、重组
    At least 3,000 police officials in Chongqing are facing a major job reshuffle to clean up the police force tainted污点 by its protection of several organized gangs.帮派
    
     换岗
    重庆将有至少3000名警察面临大换岗,此次换岗的目的是对有黑帮保护伞之称的当地警察队伍进行清理。
    在上面的报道中,job reshuffle就是“换岗”的意思。Reshuffle在这里的意思是“重新安排,改组”,例如:industry reshuffle(行业重组),reshuffle the cabinet(重组内阁)等。另外,reshuffle在生活中也常用来表示“重新洗(牌)”,例如:reshuffle a pack of cards(重洗一副牌)。
    
    如今iron rice bowl(铁饭碗)越来越少,大多数职位都需要compete for the post(竞聘上岗)。同时,job-hopper(跳槽者)也增多了。现在,就业问题仍然是社会的一个热点问题。很多还未毕业的大学生早早地开始进行job hunting(求职应聘),寻找employment opportunities(就业机会),体会group interview(群面)、online interview(网上面试)等各种能力考核测试。
    十六:网络名词----麻豆
    Cyber电脑有关的、信息技术有关的 model, or ma dou in Chinese, is an emerging发生、出现 occupation amid 在…中a boom in the country's online shopping. Cyber models do not strut 支柱、趾高气扬步态the catwalk. They pose for pictures that get posted有地位的 online for stores to showcase their products.
    
    网络模特,又称“麻豆”,是随着国内网购潮流的兴起而出现的一个新兴职业。她们工作时不用像专业模特那样走猫步,而是为网店产品的展示做图片模特。
    
    To become a cyber model, you don't necessarily have to be tall and thin with long legs like the professionals. Having a pretty face and being able to pose vivaciously活泼的 like a “girl next door” are most important.
    
    做“麻豆”不一定要像职业模特那样腿部细长、身材高挑;有张漂亮脸蛋,然后能够摆出活泼可爱的“邻家女孩”造型才是最重要的。
    
    The models are mostly college students or white-collar workers, whose employers are mainly small online clothing stores operating on a shoestring budget.
    
    选择做“麻豆”的多数是大学生或白领,而她们的雇主则主要是小本经营的网络服装店老板。
    十七: happiness index
    The happiness index of people in Jiangsu, Sichuan, Fujian provinces and Chongqing municipality自治区、自治市 was found to be high, with half of families saying they were satisfied with family life, while people living in big cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen were not so lucky.
    
     幸福感指数
    调查发现,江苏、四川、福建和重庆四个省市居民的幸福感指数较高,有一半的家庭表示他们对家庭生活感到满意,而住在北京、上海、深圳等大城市的人却不这么认为。
    十八:swill-cooked dirty oil
    The "illegal cooking oil" is usually made from discarded放弃 kitchen waste that has been refined, the report said, adding that the oil, which contains a highly toxic有毒的 and carcinogenic致癌物 substance 物质called "aflatoxin", can cause cancer.
    
     地沟油
    该报告称,“地沟油”通常使用餐厨垃圾提炼而成,成分中含有的黄曲霉素毒性很强,可致癌。
    
      文中的illegal cooking oil就是指“地沟油”,也称为swill-cooked dirty oil,指的是从kitchen waste(餐厨垃圾)中提炼出的油,含有大量有害毒性物质。使用illegal cooking oil已成为餐饮行业的open secret(公开的秘密)。国家药监局近日发布紧急通知,要求严防“地沟油”流入餐饮服务环节,对于违反单位,情节严重的将吊销其餐饮服务许可证。
    
    此外,我国还将继续推进食品安全整顿工作,杜绝各类危害人民健康的问题出现,例如pesticide residues(农药残留),以及illegal food additives(非法食品添加剂)等。只有切实解决food safety(食品安全)方面的各种问题,才能使大家在餐桌上吃得放心。
    
    十九:turnover rate
    Employees' expectations have been rising as the economy recovers and the number of available positions increases, which affectsturnover rates.
    
     人员流动率
    随着经济复苏和职位的增加,雇员的期望值在升高,这同时也影响了人员流动率。
    
      在上面的报道中,turnover rate就是“人员流动率”,是一定时期内某种人员变动(离职和新进)与员工总数的比率,是考察企业组织与员工队伍是否稳定的重要指标。Turnover一词可以表示“人员流动率,人员更替率”,例如:They have a very high turnover of staff because their working conditions are so bad.(由于他们的工作条件很差,人员流动率很高。)Turnover也常用来表示“营业额,成交量”,我们再看一个例子:Their business made good profits on a $3million-a-year turnover.(他们的公司从每年300万美元的营业额中获取高额利润。)
    
    出于personal development(个人发展)的考虑,同时也为了寻求更高的pay and welfare packages(薪酬和福利待遇),再加上经济复苏,可选择职位增多,去年的year-end bonuses(年终奖)也到手了,因此过年后job-hopping(跳槽)的职场人一下子增多。面对这种情况,企业需要改善management style(经营方式)并采取措施stabilize staff(稳定员工队伍)。
    
    二十: air quality
    China's national weather bureau gave the air quality a rare 5 rating - "heavily polluted" - and visibility was so bad that several flights had to be delayed at Beijing Capital International Airport.
    
     空气质量
    中国国家气象局称,北京当天空气质量下降至罕见的5级“重度污染”,能见度非常低。北京首都国际机场多架航班延误
    文中的air quality就是指“空气质量”。我国现在多数地区按照API(Air Pollution Index,空气污染指数)来监测air quality,按照inhalable particles(可吸入颗粒物)等含量总体划分为优、良、轻微污染、轻度污染、中度污染、中度重污染、重污染几个等级。
    
    影响北京的“沙尘暴”可以用sandstorm或者desert storm来表示。受此次sand and dust weather(沙尘天气)的影响,当日visibility(能见度)大幅降低。近期,全球多个国家都出现了破坏性巨大的extreme weather(极端天气)。
    二十一: water scarcity
    The General Assembly designated the first World Water Day in 1993, and on March 22 every year since, the focus has been on a different aspect of freshwater sustainability, including sanitation卫生设施 and water scarcity.
     水荒
    联合国大会在1993年确定了首个世界水日,自此之后,每年3月22日被定为世界水日。世界水日的主题集中在淡水资源可持续利用的不同方面,包括水资源清洁状况以及水荒。
    文中的water scarcity就是指“水荒”,也称为water shortage(水资源缺乏)。地球上的水资源主要分为freshwater(淡水)和salt water(咸水)两大类。其中,无法直接食用的salt water占绝大多数。我们平时所喝的则是经过处理的safe drinking water(安全饮用水)。为了节约用水,很多农田还使用了drip irrigation(滴灌技术)。
    
       平时口渴了,人们喜欢喝mineral water(矿泉水),soda water(汽水),或者iced water(冰水)。身体不舒服的时候可以灌个hot-water bottle(热水袋)。到了雨季,如果海河达到了high-water mark(高水位线),就要注意防洪了。
    二是二:publicize budget
    A document on how to improve government transparency in 2010, recently issued by the general office of the Guangdong government, stipulates that financial departments at all levels in the province are required to publicize their budgets so the public and media can better supervise spending.
    
     公开预算
    广东省政府办公厅日前印发了有关在2010年如何增进政府透明度的文件,其中规定,省内各级财政部门都需要实行预算公开,以便让公众和媒体可以更好地对财政支出进行监督。
    
    文中的publicize budget就是指“公开预算”,也可以用make the budget public,或者release/disclose budget来表示。这是我国推进government transparency(政务透明)的一项重大举措。而在此之前,我们很难在budget report(预算报告)中看到具体细节。据报道,去年我国的budgetary income(预算内收入)达到6.8万亿元。
    
    在制定annual budget(年度预算)时,需要合理地规划budget deficit(预算赤字)。如果需要定期付账,还需要准备一个budget account(预算账户)。
    
    如果称一个人为fussbudget,那就是说他也太“大惊小怪”了。我们知道fuss是对于鸡毛蒜皮的琐事斤斤计较的意思;而budget最早指“包包”,通常是那种皮袋、钱夹或者小包袱,也有类似备货、供应的意思。我们就不难看出,fussbudget就是对小事情也“备”了一大堆(包)埋怨和不满了。
     二十三: online funeral
    Online funerals or burials would not retain the ashes, but set up an online cemetery and memorialize the deceased by posting an obituary and funeral messages.
    
     网上葬礼
    网上葬礼不会保留骨灰,而是建立一个网上墓地,通过发布讣闻和悼念信息来纪念死者。
    在上面的报道中,online funeral即“网上葬礼”。现代人的生活节奏越来越快,再加上资源稀缺,连葬礼都推出了一切从简的网上版本。Funeral除了可以表示“葬礼”外,还可以表示“(事物)的终止”,在口语中还有“麻烦事,倒霉事”的意思。请看例子:plan the funeral of the opposition party(计划取缔反对党);If you get lost in the desert, that’s your funeral.(如果你在沙漠中迷路,那你可要倒霉了。)
    
    如果实行了网上葬礼,那么就不再需要cremation urn(骨灰盒),mourning ceremony(哀悼仪式)也可以从简,取而代之的是online tribute(网上悼念)。现在的埋葬方式主要有三种,inhumation(土葬)、cremation(火葬)和 sea-burial(海葬)。比较特别的方式有boat-coffin burial(船棺葬)、tree burial(树葬)和celestial burial(天葬),一般多见于少数民族地区。
    二十四: disposable dishware
    According to Dong Jinshi, vice-president of the Hong Kong-based International Food Packaging Association (IFPA), about half of the disposable dishware used in the country is unsafe, with excessive amounts of chemicals that can cause cancer.
    
     一次性餐具
    总部位于香港的国际食品包装协会副会长董金狮介绍称,大约有半数的一次性餐具是不安全的,其制作材料中含有超标的可致癌化学品。
    文中的disposable dishware就是指“一次性餐具”,在这里具体是指disposable food box/container(一次性餐盒)。Disposable在这里用来表示“用后即丢弃的;一次性的”。在如今的快速消费时代,我们的身边充斥着“一次性”消费品,比如我们平时经常使用的disposable chopsticks(一次性筷子)、disposable paper tissues(一次性餐巾纸),disposable razor(一次性剃刀),disposable paper cup(一次性纸杯)等等。
      此外,disposable还可以用来表示“可动用的;可自由支配的”,例如disposable income(可支配收入)就是指“纳税后的钱”,而disposable assets则是指“可任意支配的资产”。
  二十五: labor supply
    China has 'sufficient labor pool for next 40 years' -- Although facing an aging population, China will be able to maintain its development thanks to a sufficient labor supply for at least the next 40 years, a counselor to China's Cabinet on population issues has assured.
    
     劳动力供给
    未来40年中国“劳动力储备充足”——国务院人口问题顾问表示,中国虽然存在人口老龄化问题,但由于未来40年内劳动力供给充足,因此中国仍将保持发展势头。
  上文中的labor supply就是指“劳动力供给”,也被形象地称为labor pool,即“劳动力储备”。“劳动力”也称为labor force,如果labor supply(劳动力供给) 远远小于labor demand(劳动力需求),就会演变成labor shortage(用工荒);反之则体现为labor surplus /redundance(劳动力过剩)。从人口统计趋势看,中国逐步迈入aging society(老龄化社会),因此labor market(劳动力市场)将是我国面临的一大挑战。
    
    值得一提的是,pool这个词形象地描绘出了人员、资源集中的状态,类似的说法还有talent pool(人才库)、forex reserve pool(外汇储备库)、data pool(数据库)、gene pool(基因库)等等。油价看涨后,不少上班族上下班选择car pooling/sharing(拼车),不失为一种既时尚,又环保的选择。
  二十六: film panorama
    The French Film Panorama is coming back to China in April with an extended program and the largest ever artist delegation.
    
     电影展映
    法国电影展映将于四月份再度在中国举行,此次影展还会有其它形式的表演项目,到访的艺术家代表团也是有史以来规模最大的。
      在上面的报道中,film panorama就是“电影展”或“电影展映”。Panorama在这里的意思是“(不断变化的)一系列景象”,电影本身就是不断变化的影像。例如:the panorama of city life(都市生活千变万化的景象)。Panorama还可以表示“全景画,全景,全貌”等意思。例如:a vast panorama of the valley lies before us(山谷宽阔的全景展现在我们眼前)。
    
    本次法国影展参展的电影包括13部feature films(剧情片)和12部short films(短片)。其中包括comedy(喜剧片)和action film(动作片)。因此在四月份,人们除了关注blockbuster(大片)和top-grossing movie(票房冠军影片)之外,也可以感受一下法国文化。所有参加展映的电影都是in French with Chinese subtitles(法语配音,中文字幕),
  
  二十八:不管在工作还是生活中,我们都有可能遇到不顺心的事情,让你气不打一处来的人。所以,事后发发牢骚也是情有可原的。看看下面这些牢骚话你是不是也说过呢?
    
    He has an axe to grind. 他另有企图。
    
    He is the pain on neck. 他真让人讨厌。
    
    My hands are full right now. 我现在很忙。
     He is a fast talker. 他是个吹牛大王。
    
    I'm bored to death. 我无聊死了。

  二十九: first-tier city
    China's overall property price will climb 3.3 percent to 6 percent this year, with the first-tier cities experiencing an adjustment in the fourth quarter, China Real Estate Index said in a report over the weekend.
    
     一线城市
    上周末中国房地产指数研究机构在一份报告中称,今年中国的房价总体上会有3.3%到6%的增长,一线城市的房价会在第四季度进行一次调整。
     在上面的报道中,first-tier city就是“一线城市”。一线城市是指对本国的经济和政治具有重要作用的大都市。在城市规模、基建、财政收入、消费、对人才吸引力等各层面,一线城市一般均领先于其他城市。中国目前被普遍公认的一线城市是北京、上海、广州、深圳。相应地,“二线城市”即second-tier city,一般指除了北京、上海、杭州、广州、深圳、天津以外别的一些大中城市、有一些名气的城市。
    
    据分析,去年房产价格的疯长和credit expansion(信用扩张)有关。由于高房价,许多原来期望在first-tier city发展的年轻人不得不转战second-tier city和third-tier city(三线城市)。许多不甘离开梦想之地的人或成为mortgage slave(房奴),或成为ant tribe(蚁族)。另外,一线城市的高消费水平也迫使许多人成为moonlight clan(月光族)。想结婚而又无力买房的人只能选择naked wedding(裸婚)。
   三十:
    More buses and trains needed for staggered rush hour plan—As many as 800,000 commuters 上下班往返的人in Beijing will change their rush hour schedules as the new adjusted-work-hour policy kicks off on Monday.
    
     错时上下班
    错时上下班方案需更多公交和地铁列车配合——周一开始实行新的错时上下班政策后,北京80万上班族的上下班的时间将有所调整。
    
     在上面的报道中,staggered rush hour plan即“错时上下班方案”。Staggered有“交错的,错开的”的意思。例如:adopt staggered working days(采取工作日错开的方法);theatre seats staggered for clear viewing(剧院里为了不挡住视线而交错安排的座位)。动词形式stagger也可以表示“使交错,使错开”,例如:stagger employees’ vacations(把雇员的假期错开安排)。
    
    Rush hour就是每天上班族要面对的“交通高峰期”。由于大部分人的上下班都集中在一个时段,所以会出现morning peak(早高峰)和evening peak(晚高峰)。在许多路段会出现traffic jam(交通拥堵)。为此交通部门采取了相应政策,比如traffic restrictions based on the last digit of license plate numbers(尾号限行),以及增设bus lane(公交专用车道)等。另外我们经常在街道上可以看见traffic warden管理、监察官(交通协管员)在帮助维持交通秩序。
    
     三十一: reclaimed water
    Fewer than 7 percent of Beijing's golf courses use reclaimed water for irrigation, despite municipal guidelines that strongly suggest they should do so.
     再生水/中水
    虽然北京市有明确的指导方针要求高尔夫球场利用再生水进行灌溉,但是按此要求做到的球场却不到7%。
      在上面的报道中,reclaimed water是“再生水”,也可以用recycled water来表达,人们通常把这种水叫做“中水”。Reclaim在这里的意思是“回收利用(废物),(从废料中)再生产(有用产品)”。例如:reclaim valuable raw materials from industrial waste water(从工业废水中再生有价值的原料)。
    
    再生水是指污水经适当处理后,达到一定的水质指标,满足某种使用要求,可以进行有益使用的水。通常人们把tap water(自来水)叫做feed water(上水),把waste water(污水)叫做sewage water(下水),而再生水的水质介于上水和下水之间,故名“中水”。再生水虽不能饮用,但它可以用于一些水质要求不高的场合,如冲洗厕所、冲洗汽车、喷洒道路、绿化等。
    
    水是无处不在的,根据用途,可以分为production water(生产用水)、agriculture water(农业用水)、irrigation water(灌溉用水)、domestic water(生活用水);根据水的分布,有surface water(地表水)和ground water(地下水)。在日常生活中,我们经常接触的有tap water(自来水)、drinking water(饮用水)、pure water(纯净水)、mineral water(矿泉水)。
     三十二: water conservancy project
     "Without the reservoirs and other water conservancy projects in southwest China, the drought would have happened earlier and resulted in more loss," Liu said at a press conference.
    
     水利工程
     (水利部副部长)刘宁在记者招待会上说:“如果我国西南部没有修建水库和其它水利工程,那么干旱发生的时间会更早,损失也将更大。”
    
      文中的water conservancy project就是指“水利工程”,也就是我们平时说的“水利设施”,例如最常见的water reservoir(水库)。修建的用于农田灌溉工程;防洪、防潮、排涝工程;人蓄饮水工程;水电工程;水利综合经营和水资源保护设施等都属于这一类。
    
    Water conservancy在这里的意思就是“水利”,conservancy通常有两层意思,一是对自然环境的)保护,另外还可以指(港口、河流、地区等的)管理机构。
    
    此次西南干旱,造成当地出现water scarcity(水荒),当地也缺乏充足的water storage facilities(贮水设备)。目前,贵州的water reservoirs中有近七成的water line(水位线)降至死水位(亦称设计低水位、垫底水位)。
  
  三十三: earth's surface sinking
    More than 10 cases of the earth's surface sinking have been reported in the Jinshazhou housing estate since construction of the Guangzhou-Wuhan express railway began.
    
     地面塌陷
    自武广高速铁路开工建设以来,金沙洲住宅区已上报十余起地面塌陷事故。
    
     文中的earth's surface sinking就是指“地面塌陷”,也称为earth sinking。此次事故源于在Guangzhou-Wuhan express railway(武广高铁)施工过程中的over-extraction of groundwater(过度抽排地下水),造成water table(地下水位)的下降。此次事故还导致居民住宅出现walls cracking(墙体开裂)和peeling off of interior wall(内墙墙皮脱落)。
    
    Earth's surface sinking(地面塌陷)属于一种geology disaster(地质灾害)。此外,ground fissure/fracture(地裂缝)、landslide(滑坡)、mudslide(泥石流)、water and soil erosion(水土流失)、land desertification(土地沙漠化)、land salinization(土地盐碱化)等都属于geology disasters
  三十四:拜金女
    Ma Nuo, 22, a model from Beijing, has won plaudits(喝彩) for her stylish appearance, but is equally derided(嘲笑) for her material girl image(形象、. She once told a man who was jobless and invited her to ride on his bike that she would rather cry in a BMW.
     “拜金女”的英文说法
    来自北京的模特马诺只有22岁,却因其时尚的外表赚足了众人的眼球。但同时她也成为人们所嘲笑的“拜金女郎”。在一次节目中,一位无业男士曾邀请她骑单车,但她说自己宁愿坐在宝马车里哭,也不愿在自行车上笑。
  文中的material girl就是指“拜金女”,material在这里指“物质的、实际的”,因此这类女性还被称为“物质女郎”。与之相反, 不崇尚物质生活的人则更重视spiritual home(精神家园),我们一直在宣传的“物质文明”和“精神文明”则分别为material civilization和spiritual civilization。
    
    Material一般用来指“材料、资料”,比如我们常见的reading material(阅读材料)。引申开来,我们平时所说的“你不是……的料”也可以用这个词来表示,例如说一个人具备成为“良夫贤妻”的潜质,就可以说他的确是marriage material(结婚的料)。
    
    文中这档节目的名称和之前很火的一部电影同名,影片中文翻译即为If you are the one。这种说法形象地表达出了未婚男女在寻找Mr./Mrs. Right时的心态。一些人通过这档栏目摇身一变成为overnight stars(一夜成名的明星),有些甚至还有了自己的fan club(粉丝俱乐部)。类似的dating show(交友节目)最近非常火爆,但也饱受非议
  三十五: Expo-related stocks
    "We believe it is highly likely that portfolio investment in Expo-related stocks during the countdown period - from Jan 21 to April 30 - will generate strong investment returns," Shanghai Securities analyst Tu Jun said.
    
     世博概念股
    上海证券分析师图君(音)说:“我们认为在1月21日至4月30日的上海世博会100天倒计时期间,对世博概念股的证券投资很可能会带来高收益。”
  文中的Expo-related stocks就是指“世博概念股”,也称为"Expo-concept" sector stocks。类似的表达方法还有Olympics-related stocks(奥运概念股)。所谓的concept stocks(概念股)是与业绩股相对而言的。业绩股需要有良好的业绩支撑,概念股则是依靠某一种题材来支撑价格,例如资产重组等等。例如海外看好中国市场的发展,就将所有在海外上市的中国股票称为China concept stocks(中国概念股)。
    
    
    
    国家出台新的房贷政策后,有预计称人们的投资重点将转移至股市,下面就给大家介绍一些简单的分类说法。
    
    业绩股票:performance shares,公司用普通股作为长期激励性报酬支付给经营者,股权的转移由经营者是否达到了事先规定的业绩指标来决定。
    
    垃圾股:junk bond,指业绩差、没有投资价值的公司发行的股票。
    
    蓝筹股:blue chips,指行业内占有重要支配地位、业绩优良、成交活跃的大公司的股票。
    
    ST:常在股票名称前出现,special treatment的缩写。指连续三年亏损,有退市风险而被特别处理的股票。
  文中的anonymous online comments就是匿名网上评论,也就是我们平时常说的“匿名跟贴”,与之相对应的也就是no-anonymity comments(实名评论)。今后,我国将推动实行NRS(网络实名制,Network Real-name System),以有效杜绝有害信息的传播。
    
    从NRS这种表达方式可以看出,“实名制”可以用real-name system来表示。为了打击黄牛党,今年春运期间我国试行了ID-based ticket booking system(实名购票);有建议称监察部门应采取real-name reporting(实名举报);为招揽人才北大还试行了headmaster real-name recommendation system(校长实名推荐制)。
    
    我们平时上网发帖最常去的地方要数BBS了,全称为bulletin board system,也称为online bulletin boards,泛指所有的online forum(网络论坛)和message board(留言版)。上网发表留言前需要先log in(登录),发表topic/thread(主题贴),或者reply to a post(回帖)。现在颇有一些网友对帖子采取只看不回的态度,这种行为被称为lurking(潜水),但如果常年不在网上冒泡,则有可能被谑称为“水母”。
    三十七: auto show
    Ford plans to introduce its Edge sports utility vehicle (SUV) at the upcoming Beijing Auto Show this month in a bid to tap fast-growing demand for SUVs among Chinese customers.
     北京国际车展
    福特公司计划在本月的北京车展上展出Edge 越野车(SUV),以便开发中国消费者快速增长的SUV车型需求。
    文中的auto show就是指“车展”,也称为auto exhibition/expo。Auto单独使用时,在美国口语中表示“汽车”;做前缀时,可以表示“自我的、本身的”或“自动的”两层意思。例如有些相机可以在光线不好时进行auto-exposure(自动曝光),还可以进行auto-focus(自动调焦)。人们有时会在潜意识中进行auto-suggestion(自我暗示),等等。
    
    文中还出现了sports utility vehicle(SUV)这种时尚车型,它就是指“越野车”,全称为“运动型多功能车”。喜欢SUV的朋友们一定也很青睐sports car/ roadster(跑车)。经济条件宽裕的朋友可以购置一辆limo/limousine(豪华轿车)。此外,RV((Recreational Vehicle,房车)也开始在国内逐渐流行起来。

Educational experts point out that, it is equally important to take some sport activities instead of extra studies when children have spent the whole day in a boring classroom.首先,额外的学习对孩子们的身体发育是不利的。教育专家指出,孩子们在枯燥的教室里呆了一整天后,从事一些体育活动,而不是额外的学习,是非常重要的。­

      76. It is hard to imagine a student focusing their energy on textbook while other children are playing.当别的孩子在玩耍的时候,很难想象一个学生能集中精力在课本上。­
    
      77. Moreover, children will have less time to play and communicate with their peers (同龄、贵族)due to extra studies, consequently, it is difficult to develop and cultivate (结交、耕作)their character and interpersonal skills. They may become more solitary(独处的) and even suffer from certain mental illness.而且,由于要额外地学习,孩子们没有多少时间和同龄的孩子玩耍和交流,很难培养他们的个性和交际能力。他们可能变得孤僻甚至产生某些心理疾病。­
    
      78. From what has been discussed above, we may safely draw the conclusion that, although extra studies indeed enjoy many obvious advantages, its disadvantages shouldn't be ignored and far outweigh its advantages. It is absurd (荒谬的)to force children to take extra studies after school.通过以上讨论,我们可以得出结论:尽管额外学习的确有很多优点,但它的缺点不可忽视,且远大于它的优点。因此,放学后强迫孩子额外学习是不明智的。­
    
      79. Any parents should place considerable emphasis on their children to keep the balance between play and study. As an old saying goes: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.任何家长都应非常重视保持孩子在学习与玩耍的平衡,正如那句老话:只工作,不玩耍,聪明的孩子会变傻。­
    
      80. There is a growing tendency for parent these days to stay at home to look after their children instead of returning to work earlier.现在,父亲或母亲留在家里照顾他们的孩子而不愿过早返回工作岗位正成为增加的趋势。­

      83. Although parent would be able to devote (致力)much more time and energy to their children, it must be admitted that, parent has less experience and knowledge about how to educate and supervise children, when compared with professional teachers working in kindergartens or nursery schools.尽管父母能在他们孩子身上投入更多时间和精力,但是必须承认,与工作在幼儿园的专职教师相比,他们在如何管理教育孩子方面缺乏知识和经验。­
    
      84. From what has been discussed above, we may safely draw a conclusion that, although the parents' desire to look after children by themselves is understandable, its disadvantages far outweigh the advantages.通过以上讨论,我们可以得出如下结论:尽管家长想亲自照看孩子的愿望是可以理解的,但是这样做的缺点远大于优点。­
    
      85. Parents should be encouraged to send their children to nursery schools, which will bring about profound impacts(深刻影响) on children and families, and even the society as a whole.应该鼓励父母将他们的孩子送到幼儿园,这将对孩子,家庭,甚至整个社会产生深远的影响。­
    
      86. Many leaders of government always go into raptures at the mere mention of artistic and cultural projects. They are forever talking about the nice parks, the smart sculptures in central city and the art galleries(图表种类) with various valuable rarities.(珍品) Nothing, they maintain, is more essential than such projects in the economic growth.只要一提起艺术和文化项目,一些政府领导就会兴奋不已,他们滔滔不绝地说着美丽的公园,城市中心漂亮的雕塑,还有满是稀世珍宝的艺术展览馆。他们认为在经济发展中,没有什么比这些艺术项目更重要了。­
    
      87. But is it really the case? The information I've collected over last few years leads me to believe that artistic and cultural projects may be less useful than many governments think. In fact, basic infrastructure(底层结构、设施) projects are playing extremely important role and should be given priority.这是真的吗?这些年我收集的信息让我相信这些文化、艺术项目并没有许多政府想象的那么重要。事实上,基础设施建设非常重要,应该放在首位。­
    
      88. Those who are in favor of artistic and cultural projects advocate(主张)that cultural environment will attract more tourists, which will bring huge profits to local residents. Some people even equate(等同于) the build of such projects with the improving of economic construction.那些赞成建设文化艺术项目的人认为文化环境会吸引更多的游客,这将给当地居民带来巨大的利益。一些人甚至把建设文化艺术项目与发展经济建设等同起来。­
    
      89. Unfortunately, there is very few evidence that big companies are willing to invest a huge sums of money in a place without sufficient basic projects, such as supplies of electricity and water.然而,很少有证据表明大公司愿意把巨额的资金投到一个连水电这些基础设施都不完善的地方去。­
    
      90. From what has been discussed above, it would be reasonable to believe that basic projects play far more important role than artistic and cultural projects in people's life and economic growth.通过以上讨论,我们有理由相信在人们的生活和经济发展方面,基础建设比艺术文化项目发挥更大的作用。­

  afford it.那些城市的规划者们如果忽视这一点,将会付出他们无法承受的代价。

   and work in city. This problem has caused wide public concern in most cities all over the world.农民进城打工正成为增长的趋势,这一问题在世界上大部分城市已引起普遍关注。
  93. An investigation shows that many emigrants think that working at city provide them with not
   only a higher salary but also the opportunity of learning new skills.一项调查显示许多民工认为在城市打工不仅有较高的收入,而且能学到一些新技术。
    94. It must be noted that improvement in agriculture seems to not be able to catch up with the
  increase in population of rural areas and there are millions of peasants who still live a miserable
   life and have to face the dangers of exposure and starvation.必须指出,农业的发展似乎赶不上农村人口的增加,并且仍有成千上万的农民过着缺衣挨饿的贫寒生活。
    95. Although rural emigrants contribute greatly to the economic growth of the cities, they may in50e bring about many negative impacts.尽管民工对城市的经济发展做出了巨大贡献,然而他们也不可避免的带来了一些负面影响。
  96. Many sociologists point out that rural emigrants are putting pressure on population control
   and social order; that they are threatening to take already scarce city jobs; and that they have
  worsened traffic and public health problems.许多社会学家指出民工正给人口控制和社会治安带来压力。他们正在威胁着本已萧条的工作市场,他们恶化了交通和公共卫生状况。
    97. It is suggested that governments ought to make efforts to reduce the increasing gap
  between cities and countryside. They ought to set aside an appropriate fund for improvement of
  the standard of peasants' lives. They ought to invite some experts in agriculture to share their
  experiences, information and knowledge with peasants, which will contribute directly to the
   economic growth of rural areas.建议政府应该努力减少正在拉大的城乡差距。应该划拨适当的资金提高农民的生活水平;应该邀请农业专家向农民介绍他们的经验,知识和信息,这些将有助于发展农村经济。
    98. In conclusion, we must take into account this problem rationally and place more
  emphases on peasants' lives. Any government that is blind to this point will pay a heavy price.总之,我们应理智考虑这一问题,重视农民的生活。任何政府忽视这一点都将付出巨大的代价。
    99. Although many experts from universities and institutes consistently maintain that it is
   an in50e part of an independent life, parents in growing numbers are starting to realize that
   people, including teachers and experts in education, should pay considerable attention to this
   problem.尽管来自高校和研究院的许多专家坚持认为这是独立生活不可避免的一部分,然而越来越多的家长开始意识到包括教师和教育专家在内的人们应该认真对待这一问题。
    100. As for me, it is essential to know, at first, what kind of problems young students
  possible would encounter on campus.我认为,首先应看看学生们在校园可能遇到哪些问题。
    101. In addition to the obvious problem——loneliness, another major obstacle, in my
  opinion, is the alien (格格不入的、外国的)environment of campus.除了孤独这一明显的问题之外,我认为另一个困难是对校园环境的不熟悉。
    102. Freshmen often get lost on campus; fail to find the way to dormitory or library.新生常常在校园迷路,不知道去宿舍或图书馆该怎么走。
    103. Most important of all, apart from their hometown and parents, students couldn't
  catch sight of any familiar face and have to suffer from homelessness, which can cause certain
  serious mental disease.更重要的是,离开了家乡和父母,看不到任何熟悉的面孔,他们不得不忍受思家之苦,这可能会导致严重的精神疾病。

   dependence on their parents and are essential in the maintenance of healthy mental condition.同时,应该鼓励年轻人和他们的同龄人交往,发展他们的交际能力,这将帮助他们极大地减少对父母的倚赖并且保持健康的精神状态。

  debate is whether a person should choose comfortable clothes, which he or she likes,
  regardless of fashion.近些年,关于时尚存在着广泛的争论。其中一个问题就是一个人是否应选择他喜欢的舒适的衣服,而不管是否时尚。
    109. This issue is becoming a matter of concern for more and more people, especially for
  parents and experts in education.这一问题已被越来越多的人所关注,尤其是父母和教育专家。
    110. Many young people always go into raptures at the merely mention of buying fashion
  clothes. And they seem to be attracted by colorful material, various styles of fashion clothes.
  There is nothing, they maintain, that can't be compared with fashion clothes. In fact, fashion
   clothes had become indispensable part of youngster's life.许多年轻人一提到时尚服装就兴高采烈。他们似乎被时尚服装那多彩的面料,各种不同的款式所吸引。   
  111. Many people seem to overlook the basic fact: the major function of clothing is to keep us
   warm and comfortable.许多人似乎忽视了这个基本事实:衣服的基本功能是保持我们舒适和温暖。
  
  112. Furthermore, people who addict to fashion clothes have to spend more time going shopping and pay more attention to the impression they make on others. As a result, it is impossible to
  devote enough time and energy in their study and job.而且,沉湎于时尚服装的人们不得不花费更多时间逛商店,更加注意自己给别人的印象。因此,他们不可能有足够的时间用于学习工作。  
  112a. No one can doubt the essential fact that the traffic problem over the last years has caused
   wide public concern all over the world. Experts in increasing numbers are beginning to believe
  that such situation would produce unfavorable effects on economic growth of local areas.没有人能否认这一重要事实:最近几年交通问题在全世界受到了普遍关注。越来越多的专家开始相信这种状况将对当地的经济发展产生不利影响。
    114. There are s50 reasons for this problem. One of the main reasons is that the number of
  vehicles is increasing much more rapidly than building of roads. Another primary reason is that
   there seem to be too many private cars and not enough public buses.关于这个问题,有很多原因。一个主要原因是车辆增加的数量远快于道路的建设。另一个主要原因是私家车过多而公交车不够。

  sharply in the recent years.同时,拥有私人轿车的人数这几年却在快速增加。

  properly, especially at busy intersections. And this undoubtedly worsens the already grave
   situation.而且,许多人,包括司机和骑自行车的人,不能很好地遵守交通规则,特别是在繁忙的十字路口,这无疑使本已严重的状况雪上加霜。
    117. The number of private cars in urban areas should be limited while the number of public buses should be increased.在城市私人轿车的数量应得到控制而公交车的数量应该增加。
    118. When asked what kind of school they are willing to send their children to attend, many
  parents say they would choose a boarding school rather than day schools for their children.当问到愿意将孩子送到哪种学校的时候,许多父母认为他们会选择寄宿学校而不是日制学校。

   parents.离开父母上寄宿学校的学生将会培养他们的独立性。

  125. Due to high tuition fee, most of ordinary families cannot afford to send their children to
   boarding schools.因为较高的学费,大部分普通家庭支付不起他们的孩子上寄宿学校的费用。
    126. Since it is unnecessary to consider student's routine life, day school can lay stress on
  teaching instead of other aspects, such as management of dormitory and cafeteria.由于无需考虑学生的日常生活,日制学校可以将重点放在教学上而不是放在像宿舍和食堂管理这些方面。
    127. Furthermore, students living in their own home would have access to a comfortable life and have more opportunities to communicate with their parents, which have beneficial impact on
  development of their personal character.而且,学生生活在自己家中,有舒适的生活,并有更多机会和父母交流,这对他们个性的培养是有利的。

  develop modern science and technology.关于科学技术存在许多争论,其中一个问题是当国家发展现代科学技术时,传统的技术方法是否可能会消亡?  
   130. As for me, the declining of traditional technology and methods is not a bad thing; it is the natural result of progress of society.我认为,传统技术方法的消亡不一定是坏事,这是社会进步的自然结果。
    131. In the first place, some aspects of the traditional technology and methods are harmful and
  hampering the development of modern technology science.首先,传统技术方法有些部分是有害的,并且会阻碍现代科技的发展。
    132. Although modern science and technology have proved that such methods are absurd, there are still millions of people use such methods in many remote places nowadays.尽管现代科学技术已经证明了这些方法是愚昧的,然而在许多偏僻的地方,仍有成千上万的人们在使用这些方法。

   technology and methods would die out with the development of modern science and technology. The maintenance of the traditional technology and methods is futile.通过以上讨论,我坚定地相信时间会证明传统技术方法将会随着现代技术的发展而消亡,坚持传统技术方法是徒劳的。

   treats opportunities. The successful person always makes adequate preparations to meet
  opportunities as they duly arrive. The unsuccessful person, on the other hand, works little and

  最近几年就业形势不太好,很多毕业生都相继降低了期望薪资的标准,有的甚至表示可以接受“零薪资”工作。其实,就算形势再不好,有实力的人还是很受青睐的。你看不是有好些精英都在今年收到Golden hello,然后美滋滋地入了职么?
  
  A Golden hello is a bonus offered by hiring firms if the hired joins the company from a rival firm. It is very similar to the traditional joining bonus offered by firms but will be offered usually for rival firm employees luring them into a firm.
  
  Golden hello(黄金问候/高额应聘金)是招聘公司向应聘者提供的一笔奖金,如果应聘者离开对手公司并加入招聘公司,这笔奖金就可以到手。这跟传统的入职奖金有些类似,只不过Golden hello通常是为了吸引对手公司员工加入而提供的。
  
  Typically, "Golden hellos" are offered only to high-ranking executives by major corporations and may entail a value measured in millions of dollars.
  
  基本上,Golden hello只是大型集团企业向高级管理人才提供的高额应聘金,而且其额度可能是以百万美元来计算的。
  
  与Golden hello类似的一个说法是golden handshake,一般指主管级别的雇佣合同中写明的,在公司裁员、重组或者主管退休时,他们可以得到的补偿,补偿形式可以是现金、证券或其他福利补偿

  昨天QQ上碰到一个外国朋友,问及近况他说终于如愿娶了个中国姑娘。近年来,随着社会和经济的发展,跨国婚姻已经不是名人的专利,越来越多的普通老百姓也加入到了跨国婚姻的行列。《中国日报》上就曾有过相关报道:
  
  Last year, 68,000 mixed couples registered for marriage, 4,000 more than last year.
  
  "Frequent migration across borders, driven by the country's rapid economic growth, is a major reason behind the growing number of mixed marriages.
  
  "Also, foreigners who are traveling to or are working in China are mostly at the typical age to marry."
  
  报道称,去年我国登记的跨国婚姻有6万8千对,比去年多4千对。跨国婚姻增多的主要原因是我国经济高速发展所带来的频繁移民。
  
  这里的“mixed marriage”指的就是“跨国婚姻”。“Mixed”是“混合的”意思,“跨国婚姻”也就是两个不同国家、不同民族的人的联姻。常见的与“mixed”组成的合成词还有:“mixed blood”(混血儿)、“mixed economy”(混合经济)和“mixed salad”(什锦沙拉)。
  
  此外,还可以用“interracial marriages” 来表示跨国婚姻。

  1月8日下午,长春市的天空中突然出现“3个太阳”,中间太阳外侧有一圈彩虹般的光环,且边上两个“小太阳”的面积约为中间太阳的1/10。许多市民见到这一奇观后,纷纷用照相机、手机拍摄下来,部分网友还将照片贴在QQ上和博客上,标题不约而同地提到了“三个太阳”。
  
  请看相关报道:
  
  A parhelion (also known as sundog) combined with a halo is seen in Changchun, capital of Northeast China's Jilin province on Jan 8, 2011. The atmospheric phenomenon is created by ice crystals in the air at low levels during a cold weather period.
  
  2011年1月8日,长春市出现“幻日”,太阳周围有光环围绕。这种大气现象是在寒冷天气里,阳光经低处云层中的冰晶体折射后就会形成的。
  
  上面报道中的parhelion就是“幻日”,又叫sundog或者mock sun。飘浮在空中的六角形柱状的ice crystal(冰晶体)偶尔会整整齐齐地垂直排列在空中,当太阳光射在这一根根六角形冰柱上,就会发生非常规律的折射现象,从冰柱出来的三路光线射到人的眼睛中,中间那路太阳光线,是由中间位置的太阳直接射来的,是真正的太阳;旁边两条光线,是太阳光经过六角形晶柱折射而来的。也就是说另外两个太阳实际上是太阳的virtual image(虚像)。
  
  幻日是一种optical phenomenon(光学现象),其他类似光学现象包括围绕太阳的彩色光环solar halo(日晕)、形状极似倒挂彩虹的circumzenithal arc (幻日弧光) 、与幻日相对的moondog(幻月)

  有句古语叫“谋事在人,成事在天”,说的是很多事情都有定数,并不是付出了努力就一定能达到目的的。这句话跟我们今天的话题很搭,我们要说的就是“顺其自然”的英文表达。
  
  
  
  1. Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you.
  
  
  
  
  别自找麻烦了,顺其自然吧。
  
  
  
  2. Some of us like to have our future mapped out, others like to go with the flow.
  
  
  
  有些人喜欢规划未来,有些人喜欢顺其自然。
  
  
  
  3. It's best to take the world as you find it, then you won't be disappointed.
  
  
  
  还是顺其自然最好,这样,你就不会失望了。
  
  
  
  4. Be that as it may, I'll leave it as it is.
  
  
  
  无论如何我们也只能听其自然。
  
  
  
  5. Since there is nothing we can do, why notlet nature take its course?
  
  
  
  既然我们无能为力,何不顺其自然呢?
  
  
  
  6. Your opposition won't make any difference, just let it be.
  
  
  
  你反对也不能起什么作用,顺其自然吧。
  
  
  
  7. We will cross the bridge until we come to it.
  
  
  
  走一步看一步吧,顺其自然。
  
  
  
  8. Whatever will be, will be.
  
  
  
  万事不必苛求,顺其自然。

  最易犯错的20句英语口语
  英语口语
  1. 你是做什么工作的呢?
  
  What’s your job?
  
  Are you working at the moment?
  
  Note:what’s your job这种说法难道也有毛病吗?是的。因为如果您的谈话对象刚刚失业,如此直接的问法会让对方有失面子,所以您要问:目前您是在上班吗?Are you working at the moment?接下来您才问:目前您在哪儿工作呢?Where are you working these days?或者您从事哪个行业呢?What line of work are you in?顺带说一下,回答这类问题时不妨说得具体一点,不要只是说经理或者秘书
  
  2. 用英语怎么说?
  
  How to say?
  
  How do you say this in English?
  
  Note:How to say是在中国最为泛滥成灾的中国式英语之一,这决不是地道的英语说法。同样的句子有:请问这个词如何拼写?How do you spell that please?请问这个单词怎么读?How do you pronounce this word?
  
  3. 明天我有事情要做。
  
  I have something to do tomorrow?
  
  Sorry but I am tied up all day tomorrow.
  
  用I have something to do来表示您很忙,这也完全是中国式的说法。因为每时每刻我们都有事情要做,躺在那里睡大觉也是事情。所以您可以说我很忙,脱不开身:I’m tied up.还有其他的说法:I’m I can’t make it at that time. I’d love to, but I can’t, I have to stay at home.
  
  4. 我没有英文名。
  
  I haven’t English name.
  
  I don’t have an English name.
  
  Note:许多人讲英语犯这样的错误,从语法角度来分析,可能是语法功底欠缺,因为have在这里是实义动词,而并不是在现在完成时里面那个没有意义的助动词。所以,这句话由肯定句变成否定句要加助动词。
  明白道理是一回事,习惯是另一回事,请您再说几话:我没有钱;I don’t have any money.我没有兄弟姐妹;I don’t have any brothers or sisters.我没有车。I don’t have a car.
  
  5. 我想我不行。
  
  I think I can’t.
  
  I don’t think I can.
  
  Note:这一组然是个习惯问题,在语法上称为否定前置,这就是汉语里面说“我想我不会”的时候,英语里面总是说“我不认为我会”。以后您在说类似的英语句子的时候,只要您留心,也会习惯英语的说法的,
  
  6. 我的舞也跳得不好。
  
  I don’t dance well too.
  
  I am not a very good dancer either.
  
  Note:当我们说不擅长做什么事情的时候,英语里面通常用not good at something,英语的思维甚至直接踊跃到:我不是一个好的舞者。
  
  7. 现在几点钟了?
  
  What time is it now?
  
  What time is it, please?
  
  Note:What time is it now这是一个直接从汉语翻译过的句子,讲英语的时候没有必要说now,因为您不可能问what time was it yesterday, 或者what time is it tommorow?所以符合英语习惯的说法是:请问现在几点了?还有一种说法是:How are we doing for time?这句话在有时间限制的时候特别合适
  
  8. 我的英语很糟糕。
  
  My English is poor.
  
  I am not 100% fluent, but at least I am improving.
  
  Note:有人开玩笑说,全中国人最擅长的一句英文是:My English is poor.实话说,我从来没有遇到一个美国人对我说:My Chinese is poor. 无论他们的汉语是好是坏,他们会说: I am still having a few problem, but I getting better.
  当您告诉外国人,您的英语很poor,so what(那又怎么样呢),是要让别人当场施舍给我们一些英语呢,还是说我的英语不好,咱们不谈了吧。
  另外一个更大的弊端是,一边不停的学英语,一边不停地说自己的英语很poor,这正像有个人一边给车胎充气,又一边在车胎上扎孔放气。您可以实事求事地说,我的英语还不算十分流利,但至少我在进步。
  
  9. 你愿意参加我们的晚会吗?
  
  Would you like to join our party on Friday?
  
  Would you like to come to our party on Friday night?
  
  Note:join往往是指参加俱乐部或者协会,如:join a health club; join the Communist Party.事实上,常常与party搭配的动词的come 或者go, 如go a wild party,或者come to a Christmas Party。
  
  10. 我没有经验。
  
  I have no experience.
  
  I don’t know much about that.
  
  Note:I have no experience这句话听起来古里古怪,因为您只需要说:那方面我懂得不多,或者这方面我不在行,就行了。I am not really an expert in this area.
  
  11. 我没有男朋友。
  
  I have no boyfriend.
  
  I don’t have a boyfriend.
  
  12. 他的身体很健康。
  
  His body is healthy.
  
  He is in good health. You can also say: He’s healthy.
  
  13. 价钱很昂贵/便宜。
  
  The price is too expensive/cheap.
  
  The price is too high/ rather low.
  
  14. 我们下了车。
  
  We got off the car.
  
  We got out of the car.
  
  15. 车速快了。
  
  The speed of the car is fast.
  
  The car is speeding. Or “The car is going too fast.”
  
  16. 这个春节你回家吗?
  
  Will you be going back home for the Spring Festival?
  
  是的,我回去。Of course! (这一句是错的) 当然。Sure. / Certainly.(这种说法是正确的)以英语为母语的人使用of course的频率要比中国的学生低得多,只有在回答一些众所周知的问题时才说of course。因为of course后面隐含的一句话是“当然我知道啦!难道我是一个傻瓜吗?”因此,of course带有挑衅的意味。在交谈时,用sure或certainly效果会好得多。同时,of course not也具挑衅的意味。正常情况下语气温和的说法是certainly not.
  
  17. 我觉得右手很疼。
  
  I feel very painful in my right hand.
  
  My right hand is very painful. Or “ My right hand hurts(aches).”
  
  18. 他看到她很惊讶。
  
  He looked at her and felt surprised.
  
  He looked at her in surprise.
  
  19. 我读过你的小说但是没料到你这么年轻。
  
  I have read your novels but I didn’t think you could be so young.
  
  After having read your novel, I expected that you would be older.
  
  20. 她脸红了,让我看穿了她的心思。
  
  Her red face made me see through her mind.
  
  Correct: Her red face told me what she was thinking.

  华裔教授在美报撰诗表达对西方偏见愤慨2011年01月12日 10:48新华网【大 中 小】 【打印】 共有评论38条
  美国纽约州立大学水牛城分校退休华裔物理学荣誉教授林良多(Duo-Liang Lin)在美国《华盛顿邮报》上发表了一首英文诗《你们究竟要我们怎样生存?》,随后在互联网上热传并引起中西方网友热议。这首诗表达了许多美籍华人长期以来内心的压抑和愤慨,因此被评论为是多年来受到双重标准困扰的海外华人向西方偏见“射出的一记利箭”。该诗全文翻译如下:
  
  你们究竟要我们怎样生存?
  
  林良多
  
  当我们是东亚病夫时,我们被说成是黄祸;
  
  当我们被预言将成为超级大国时,又被称为主要威胁。
  
  当我们闭关自守时,你们走私鸦片强开门户;
  
  当我们拥抱自由贸易时,却被责骂抢走了你们的饭碗。
  
  当我们风雨飘摇时,你们铁蹄入侵要求机会均等;
  
  当我们整合破碎山河时,你们却叫嚣“给西藏自由”。
  
  当我们推行马列救国时,你们痛恨我们信仰共产主义;
  
  当我们实行市场经济时,你们又嫉妒我们有了资本。
  
  当我们的人口超过十亿时,你们说我们摧毁地球;
  
  当我们限制人口增长时,你们又说我们践踏人权。
  
  当我们一贫如洗时,你们视我们低贱如狗;
  
  当我们借钱给你们时,你们又埋怨使你们国债累累。
  
  当我们发展工业时,你们说我们是污染源;
  
  当我们把产品卖给你们时,你们又说造成地球变暖。
  
  当我们购买石油时,你们说我们掠夺资源、灭绝种族;
  
  当你们为石油开战时,却说自己解救生灵。
  
  当我们动乱无序时,你们说我们没有法治;
  
  当我们依法平暴时,你们又说我们违反人权。
  
  当我们保持沉默时,你们说我们没有言论自由;
  
  当我们敢于发声时,又被说成是洗过脑的暴民。
  
  我们不禁要问:“为什么你们这样憎恨我们?”
  
  你们回答说:“不,我们不恨你们。”
  
  “我们也不恨你们,只是,你们了解我们吗?”
  
  “当然了解,我们消息多的是,有法新社、美国有线新闻网、还有英国广播公司……”
  
  你们究竟要我们怎样生存?
  
  回答之前请仔细想一想,因为你们的机会是有限的。
  
  够了,这个世界已经容不下太多的伪善。
  
  我们要的是同一个世界,同一个梦想,太平盛世。
  
  这个辽阔的蓝色地球, 容得下你们,也容得下我们。
  
  附:英文原作如下:
  
  《What Do You Really Want from Us?》
  
  When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril.
  
  When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat.
  
  When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.
  
  When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.
  
  When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share.
  
  When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again,
  
  free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion!
  
  When tried communism, you hated us for being communist.
  
  When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist.
  
  When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.
  
  When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.
  
  When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.
  
  When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.
  
  When we build our industries, you call us polluters.
  
  When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.
  
  When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.
  
  When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.
  
  When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.
  
  When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.
  
  When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.
  
  When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes.
  
  “Why do you hate us so much﹖”we asked.
  
  “No,” you answered, “we don't hate you.”
  
  We don't hate you either, but, do you understand us?
  
  “Of course we do, ”you said, “We have AFP, CNN and BBC's ……”
  
  What do you really want from us?
  
  Think hard first, then answer, Because you only get so many chances.
  
  Enough is enough, enough hypocrisy for this one world.
  
  We want one world, one dream, and peace on earth.
  
  This big blue earth is big enough for all of us.

  一年一度的春运已经开始,大家在期盼假期到来的时候,也要忙活着买回家车票啦,今天我们要了解的就是和火车票相关的内容。
  
  先来给大家介绍sleeping berth; sleeper
  
  一听到sleeping,大家肯定想到卧铺了吧?对了,sleeping berth 或者sleeper就是卧铺的意思。
  
  I want a sleeping berth from Beijing to Mongolia.
  
  Ok,hard sleeping berth or soft sleeping berth?
  
  我要一张北京到内蒙的卧铺。
  
  好,要硬卧还是软卧?
  
  怎么样,很简单吧?加上soft 和hard就分别表示软硬卧了。当然,我们也可以说hard sleeper和soft sleeper.
  
  路程远买个sleeping berth确实是必要的,不过如果很近,而且又是白天,那我们可以选经济又实惠的硬座,同时还可以和周围的人侃大山。
  
  I think hard seat is quite ok with me, as it’s not far away any way.
  
  我觉得硬座就可以了,反正也不远嘛。
  
  硬座hard seat。 软座小涵不说的话大家肯定也猜的到了,软座soft seat。
  
  在春运期间能买到坐票其实已经很幸福了,因为通常我们买到的都是ticket for standing room站票。也许还是在temporary train临时客车上。
  
  当然,如果多花点money,坐个bullet train动车,那真是爽极了!又快又舒服!
  
  不过买票的时候大家一定要谨防ticket scalper票贩子,也叫黄牛党。 If you happen to meet a ticket scalper, please call 110 in case you are cheated by those evils in the future.
  
  Ok, that’s all for today. See you tomorrow.

  新的一年来到,每个人都期望新年有新气象,有新的收获。可因为习惯思维的关系,大家在新年的前几周会时不时地把新年的日期写成去年的。这样的情况,我们就叫做new year’s block。
  
  
  
  New year's block is a condition that usually takes place the first couple of weeks into the new year, in which a person keeps writing in the last/previous year in place of the new one.
  
  New year's block(新年障碍)是在每年刚开始的那几周会频繁发生的一种情况:人们在填写日期的时候,会在本该写新年份的地方习惯性地写上刚刚过去那一年的数字。
  
  For example:
  
  This is my third check today I write in the "old" year! I guess I got new year's block.
  
  这是今天第三张把日期错写成去年的支票了!我猜我是患了新年障碍

  陈豪在北京的ABC美国公司工作,他的美国同事Amy来找他谈事儿。
  
  A:Hi Chen Hao, have you got a minute?
  
  C:Amy, 刚才你过来的时候,我正在电话上。
  
  A:It's not polite to hang around when someone is the phone so I decided to come back.
  
  C:嗨,别提了。我刚才一直在电话上等。想挂,可是好不容易才打通,挂了又得从头来,我就在那儿傻等着,烦死了。
  
  A:I know what you mean. Putting callers on hold for more than thirty seconds is bad for customer relations.
  
  C:半分钟,别说半分钟;我刚才足足等了半小时。不过,Amy, 说实话,我让别人等的时候,有时候也容易把时间忘了。What can I do?
  
  A:Watch the clock. Time passes quickly for the person who is busy with other callers or issues, but for the person on hold, time creeps by.
  
  C:就是这么回事。在电话上等,确实觉得时间过得特别慢,所以越等越不耐烦。
  
  A:Since your job doesn't involve answering other people's calls, I would guess that your callers are waiting for you to look up information while they hold.
  
  C:没错,一般情况下,我都会让客户在电话上等着别挂,我马上设法帮他们解决问题。
  
  A:There is a difference in holding for someone to answer the phone and holding for someone to look up information for you.
  
  C:在线上等别人接你的电话和等别人去帮你查资料有什么不一样呢?
  
  A:If you ask people to hold while you are looking up information or trying to help them in some way, they are willing to wait.
  
  C:我怎么还是不明白?
  
  A:People are happy to wait while you work on their behalf.
  
  C:噢,他们知道对方是在为自己解决问题,所以等得心甘情愿。那些等着别人接听电话的人呢?
  
  A:When you take your time getting to the call, the caller starts to imagine all sorts of scenarios.
  
  C:没错,我就经常怀疑对方是把我给忘了。
  
  A:The caller may suspect you don't think the caller is important.
  
  C:还有呢?
  
  A:Maybe you don't value the caller's time?
  
  C:对呀,在线上等电话是越等越急,越急就容易胡思乱想。
  
  A:Yes, and the result is that your caller is pretty annoyed when you finally answer the phone.
  
  C:没错,那客户肯定很不高兴,觉得我没有礼貌。
  
  A:Exactly. So if you want to avoid making people feel unimportant or ignored, pick up your phone as soon as you know you have a caller waiting.
  
  C:如果没办法马上接电话,我通常都会让秘书请客户决定,是在线上继续等,还是在电话信箱里留言。
  
  A:Exactly, good business etiquette as usual is to be considerate of the other person.

  在美国国防部长盖茨访华之际,网络上又传出我国歼20隐形战机试飞成功的消息。关于歼20,网络上暗流涌动。而我国国防部在回答有关歼-20战斗机试飞问题时表示,中国发展武器装备不针对任何国家和特定目标。
  
  The test flight of the J-20 stealth jet fighter in Chengdu, Sichuan province, has been widely reported on Chinese Internet blogs and online news sites.
  
  国内很多博客和新闻网站都发布了歼20隐形战机在四川成都试飞成功的消息。
  
  上文中的stealth jet fighter就是指“隐形战机”,也称为radar-eluding fighter jet,顾名思义,就是能躲过雷达探测的战机。类似的还有stealth bomber(隐形轰炸机)。这里的stealth除了可以指飞机“隐形的”,还可以用作名词,意思是“不声张的活动,秘密行动”。比如stealth tax(隐性税)。
  
  Test flight就是指歼20的“试飞”,而且是maiden test flight(首次试飞),据称此次试飞的是fourth generation fighter jet(第四代战机)。

  Hello,My ears! Thank you very much for your support to Oral English! Today we will talk about two words which are really popular in the forum. One of them is bump. Bump是网络时代特别常用的一个词: “灌水”
  
  在中文里,“灌水”要形象生动的多,一些人为了获得积分在论坛里反复留言;在回别人帖子的时候没有做出交际性的评论,只是简单的表示“同意”、“支持”,内容与主题无关,这种现象在英语中叫“bump”,它在论坛里是“顶”的意思。
  
  e.g.To bump a thread on an internet forum is to post a reply in order to raise the thread's profile by returning it to the top of the list of active threads. This is also called "necroposting".这种“灌水”往往被认为是一种垃圾留言(spam),被很多论坛禁止。
  
  说到灌水,耳朵们肯定想到潜水了吧! “潜水”指在论坛、聊天室等只浏览不发言的行为。这样的人好似“潜水员”,永远不浮出水面。“潜水”在英语中的对应词是“lurk”。
  
  e.g.Lurking is an activity performed on Internet Forums or Chat rooms that involves wandering the website, reading posts and never actually posting anything.长期“潜水”会导致论坛人气不足,这样的member最终会被管理员取消成员资格,但在刚刚加入某一论坛时为了了解论坛的风格和讨论的主题短时间的“潜水”是被接受和鼓励的。
  
  好了,bump and lurk,灌水+潜水,和好朋友分享一下,网络潮人,非你莫属!

  法国传奇门将巴特斯是最早被称为黄油手的人,而英格兰队因盛产黄油守门将被称为黄油队。
  
  今天,我们就来说说这个“黄油手”的英文说法。
  
  Butterfingers refer to a clumsy person, especially one who tends to drop things. During the World Cup, the term refers ironically to those clumsy goalkeepers prone to let shots slip through their hands as if they had applied butter to their fingers.
  
  “黄油手”指笨手笨脚、手里拿东西很容易掉的人。世界杯期间,“黄油手”则指那些扑住了对方进球却又让球从手中溜进球门的守门员,就好像他们手上抹了黄油似的。
  
  For example:
  
  England goalkeeper Robert Green dominated the headlines as a "butterfingers" after his fumble against the USA in the group rounds.
  
  小组赛阶段,英格兰门将罗伯特 格林因其“黄油手”失球而占据了各大报刊的头条。

  近日,以色列的一项研究发现,笑声可以帮助提高女性通过试管婴儿怀孕的几率。俗话说:笑是良药,现在越来越多的国外大型医院和心理诊所开始雇用“医疗小丑”。他们会陪同重病患者看幽默漫画、聊天,以此作为心理治疗的方法之一。
  
  So-called clown care has long been used at medical centers in Israel, the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia, usually in children's hospitals. Israel's University of Haifa also recently launched a degree program in "medical clowning".
  
  这种“小丑护理”在以色列、美国、加拿大、欧洲和澳大利亚的医疗中心已经存在了很长时间,在儿童医院尤其常见。以色列的海法大学最近还设立了一个关于“幽默治疗”的学位项目。
  
  clown care 就是“小丑护理”,指的是通过笑声和幽默令患者忘记身体上的痛楚和心灵上的创伤,从而加快患者痊愈的一种护理方式。从事这一职业的人通常被称为medical clown(医疗小丑)或者clown doctor(小丑医生)。
  
  Care是“照看、护理”的意思,各种的care包括,帮助上班父母照顾儿童的childcare (儿童保育)、 医护人员在患者家里照顾患者的home care(居家看护)以及需要24小时仪器监控和严密看护的intensive care(重症监护)等。

  上中学的时候,我们学过一句英语谚语“Jack of all trades, master of none”,说的是Jack这个孩子什么都懂一点,但每样都不精通。老师教育我们说做事情要专注,要刨根究底,知其然,还要知其所以然。谁知,到了伟大的21世纪,Jack小朋友又跑出来了,而且同伴还不少呢。
  With the development of the Internet and other sources of instantaneous information, many people strive to gain at least a working knowledge of many different subjects. They are so-called “pancake people”, they no longer concentrate their energies on one area of interest, but instead choose to spread themselves thinly over a large area. As a result, a new generation of pancake people have essentially become the proverbial jacks of all trades, but masters of none.
  随着网络和各种信息渠道的发展,很多人都力求在各个不同领域都至少获得一些基本的操作知识。他们就是所谓的“煎饼人”,他们不再将精力专注于某一个感兴趣的领域,而是让自己的关注点浅浅地散布在一个很大的范围。由此,新一代的“煎饼人”就真的成谚语里说的“门门通,门门松”了。
  The term “pancake people” is largely seen as a negative commentary on the current age of instantaneous information. The ability to access even the most obscure information in a matter of seconds may be seen as a positive social development on one level, but it can also cause some people to become less inclined to delve more deeply into one particular subject of interest. As a result, a generation of overloaded pancake people may become more obsessed with popular culture and less interested in the larger arc of human history.
  在当前这个即时信息时代,“煎饼人”这个词很大程度上被看作是一个贬义词。在几秒内获得稀缺信息的能力可能是社会发展积极的一方面,但同时也会让一些人不愿意深究某一个感兴趣的主题。结果,这一代信息过量的“煎饼人”可能会对流行文化过分沉迷,而对人类历史的更广泛领域却鲜有兴致。

  C:我当然不会光着膀子穿西装打领带了。
  
  A:Then you shouldn't consider wearing your shoes without socks. If your boss Mr. Jones sees you, he will not be pleased.
  
  C:那可坏了。我可我没带袜子。这怎么办呀?
  
  A:Avoid Mr. Jones at all cost. Then buy some socks when you go out for lunch today. There's a department store right around the corner.
  
  C:你说得对,我得先躲着点儿老板,中午吃饭的时候赶紧去商店买袜子穿上。I will see you later.
  
  ******
  
  MC:午饭后,陈豪找到Amy.
  
  A:Chen Hao, did you find any socks?
  
  C:我正准备穿上呢!天儿热,所以我买了两双白袜子,起码比深颜色的袜子凉快点儿。
  
  A:Oh dear.
  
  C:怎么了?
  
  A:White socks are inappropriate for corporate dress. They are more for athletic wear and outdoor attire.
  
  C:啊?白袜子是跑步打球穿的,不是上班穿的。怎么这么多讲究呀!好在我还买了一双深色的。服务员一直向我推销高腰儿的,就是可以拉到小腿肚儿上来的那一种。我觉得太热,没买。
  
  A:Oh dear.
  
  C:又怎么了?
  
  A:You should have listened to the salesman. Short socks just won't do in the business environment.
  
  C:那为什么?
  
  A:It's because when you sit down and cross your legs in short socks, you expose everyone around you to the sight of your hairy legs.
  
  C:Amy, 我从来没想到穿袜子还有这么多讲究。
  
  A:Your business attire is extremely important "right down to your socks".
  
  C:这么说,我穿成什么样儿也会影响到公司形象了。看来我下班还得再去买袜子,Amy,你陪我去吧,完了事儿我请你吃饭。
  
  A:Thank you. I'll look forward to that.
  
  C:Amy,你能不能再告诉我一下上班要穿什么样的袜子。这样我心里就有数了。
  
  A:Avoid white socks and short socks. The right sock in business is the one that covers your calf and matches your shoes and pants.

  陈豪在北京的ABC美国公司工作。他在走廊上远远地看到美国同事Amy,连忙赶了过去。
  
  
  
  C:Amy, 我有点儿急事想请教你。
  
  A:OK, What is it?
  
  C:跟我一个办公室的Todd, 他妈妈在美国去世了。
  
  A:I don't know Todd, but I am sorry to hear that.
  
  C:他要回美国奔丧。我想为他做点儿什么,但又不知道怎样做才符合西方的礼节,所以今天早上我一直在躲着他。
  
  A:That's a perfectly natural response. May I suggest a few things?
  
  C:太好了,你快告诉我。
  
  A:First of all, don't avoid him. Make a point of going to him immediately and offering your condolences.
  
  C:什么是condolences?
  
  A:Condolences就是表示同情、慰问。
  
  C:我唯一能想到的就是 "I'm sorry to hear about your loss." 就这么一句好像不太够吧?
  
  A:Sometimes that's all you can say. If you try to say more, it may be the wrong thing.
  
  C:是呀,我也是怕说多了反而坏事。
  
  A:If you can, follow your statement of condolence with an offer to help.
  
  C:帮忙, 可我能帮什么忙呢?
  
  A:Think of what he may need that you can do. You might offer to take him to the airport.
  
  C:开车送他去机场确实是个好主意,可惜我没车。
  
  A:What about work issues? Are there things you can help him with while he is away?
  
  C:对呀,我们是一个组的,他请假,我可以承担一部分他的工作。我这就去跟他说。谢谢你,Amy.
  
  ******
  
  MC:午饭时陈豪又看见了Amy.
  
  A:Chen Hao, How did things go with Todd?
  
  C:你说得没错。我说可以承担他的工作,Todd显得如释重负。另外,我还想到了其它可以出力的地方。
  
  A:What was that?
  
  C:Todd是我的邻居,他养了一只猫,叫Fluffy. 我告诉他说,他离开这段时间,我可以照顾Fluffy, 他听了以后特别高兴。
  
  A:It is important to be specific at times like these. So often people simply say, "Let me know if there is anything I can do to help."
  
  C:Amy, 你觉得我还需要送花和卡片吗?
  
  A:You can, but that's not necessary since you are expressing your sympathy in a concrete way.
  
  C:Todd还让我帮他取信。我有他公寓的钥匙。他回来之前,我还可以帮他买点儿新鲜蔬菜和水果。
  
  A:You see how easy it is to think of acts of service for people who are grieving?
  
  C:是啊,我们总是不好意思求别人办事,要是能主动提出来,那是再好不过的了。
  
  A:That's right. Too often when people don't know what to do at a time of loss, they end up not doing anything.
  
  C:幸亏有你,Amy.

  最近,大家都说,物价上涨太快,有钱人都出国“打酱油”去了;比较有钱的也都上香港“买盐”了。可见,咱们国家的有钱人真正在国内消费的似乎并不多。要不,英国怎么会突然出现个货币词汇叫做“北京镑”呢?
  
  The big bucks Chinese spend overseas every year reaches staggering numbers. Last year reportedly 56% of Chinese purchases of luxury goods occur abroad, totaling 13 billion USD. British Media coined a new word—“Peking Pound” for Chinese huge purchasing power.
  中国人每年在国外甩出去的大票子已经达到了一个惊人的数目。据称,去年中国人的奢侈品消费有56%都发生在国外,总价值达130亿美元。英国媒体造了个词“北京镑”来指代中国人强大的购买力。
  
  Many stores in London's West End have appointed Mandarin-speaking assistants to help cash in on the arrival of the "Peking Pound."
  伦敦西区的很多商店都雇佣了讲普通话的促销员来帮助他们从“北京镑”身上赚钱。
  
  The Selfridges chain of high end department stores has started accepting China UnionPay cards, the domestic credit card only available in China.

  职场礼节美语之三十]感谢卡片
  陈豪在北京的ABC美国公司工作,他到美国同事Amy的办公室去找她。
  
  (Office ambience)
  
  C:Amy, 你有时间吗?
  
  A:I can always make time for you, Chen Hao. What's the matter?
  
  C:我有个客户,听说我搬家,专门送了我一幅画儿。
  
  A:That doesn't sound like a problem. It sounds more like a nice gesture.
  
  C:可是那画的颜色和风格跟我的公寓格格不入。
  
  A:That's too bad. He probably chose something he would like to have and didn't consider your taste. I hope you thanked him for it anyway.
  
  C:我觉得也是,给别人买东西,应该买别人喜欢的才对。不过我还是打算发个电子邮件,谢谢他,但是不知道怎么写,所以来请教你。
  
  A:Well, first of all, you shouldn't use e-mail to thank someone for a gift. A proper note of gratitude should be handwritten.
  
  C:什么是 gra--ti--tude?
  
  A:Gratitude is the same as thanks or appreciation.
  
  C:那一定要手写吗?
  
  A:E-mail is impersonal and lacks warmth. The effort you make to show your gratitude should match the effort that your client expended in sending you the gift.
  
  C:我能不能买张现成的感谢卡,在上面加上一句,然后签个字呢?
  
  A:I'm sorry, but that won't do either. You need to demonstrate your good manners by composing a personal note in your own words on the appropriate stationery.
  
  C:你能陪我去买合适的卡片吗?
  
  A:I don't have time now. But let's meet at the stationery store at noon.
  
  ******
  
  MC:中午,陈豪和Amy一起到卡片专卖店。
  
  C:Amy, 这种可以折叠的感谢卡挺大方的。
  
  A:They are acceptable, but not as classy as these correspondence cards that are made of heavier stock paper.
  
  C:噢,correspondence cards,就是回复卡。
  
  A:You should order some with your name engraved across the top for future use.
  
  C:我说有时候收到别人的卡片,上面还有名字的缩写,原来是可以订做的呀。好,就买这个。不过我还是不知道怎么写。
  
  A:It's not so hard, and you don't have to be dishonest.
  
  C:你启发启发我。
  
  A:You can tell your client how much you appreciate his thoughtfulness and generosity in sending you a painting by this artist.
  
  C:有了。我就说“你怎么知道我家到处都是白墙的?画儿是我最需要的。”这样写,他也不知道我是不是喜欢那幅画。
  
  A:And you have all the elements of a proper thank you note.
  
  C:Amy, 你能再重复一下写感谢卡的注意事项吗?
  
  A:A note of thanks is hand written on quality notepaper. It begins with a specific reference to the gift, remarks about its quality, why you appreciate it and how you will use it.
  
  C:这么说,其实也不难嘛。谢谢你,Amy.

  中国国家外汇管理局19日公布了中国最新外债数据。截至去年9月末,中国外债余额为5464.49亿美元,其中美元债务占71.91%,尽管较去年一季度末占比略有下降,但较2009年末仍上升4.15个百分点。
  
  
  
  请看新华社的报道:
  
  
  
  China's outstanding external debt (excluding that of Hong Kong SAR, Macao SAR and Taiwan province) reached $546.449 billion, said the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) on Wednesday.
  
  
  
  中国国家外汇管理局周三称,中国的外债余额(不包括香港特区、澳门特区和台湾省)达到了5464.49亿美元。
  
  
  
  在上面的报道中,outstanding external debt指的是“外债余额”,external debt即“外债”。外债余额是指国有商业银行总行及其境内外分支机构,向境外的金融机构或其他企业、机构、个人筹借并供境内使用且尚未偿还的,以外国货币承担契约性偿还义务的所有债务总额。Outstanding在这里的意思是“未支付的”。
  
  
  
  数据显示,short term external debt(短期外债)在我国外债中所占比例继续上升。其中,trade credit(贸易信贷)和trade finance(贸易融资)占短期外债余额的78.17%,这与中国近年外贸迅猛发展相关

  这年头,不论身材胖瘦,大家都在喊减肥;不论长相怎样,每个人都说要整容。似乎没有魔鬼身材,没有天使面孔,大家都不好意思出门了似的。估计都是看那些明星婀娜的身材和“岁月无痕脸”看的吧。
  
  Year-zero face is a term for the ageless visage created with fillers, Botox, chemical peels, and the like.
  Year-zero face(岁月无痕脸)指通过填充剂、肉毒杆菌、化学换肤等方式打造出来的让人看不出实际年龄的完美面容。
  
  Though traditionally cosmetic surgery has been used to make patients look younger, doctors are noticing a trend for women wanting to simply look "done". Rather than chase youthfulness with a scalpel, some seem to be choosing instead to fix their faces at a certain age (many women settle for the golden, ageless age: 36) and maintain the year-zero face with injectable fillers and cosmetic treatments.
  长久以来,整容手术一般都是为了让患者看起来更年轻,不过近几年,医生们发现越来越多的女性更倾向于通过整容手术让自己的脸看上去像“完工的作品”。有一部分女性选择整容手术不是为了追求年轻的面容,而是为了让自己的面容停留在某一个年龄(很多人都选择最黄金又不显年龄的36岁),然后通过可注射的填充剂和整容治疗让那张岁月无痕脸一直保持下去。

  全球各地最近发生了许多鸟类和鱼类大规模死亡事件,各国人们都对此大惑不解,并传出各种揣测的说法。近日,科学家找到了罗马尼亚鸟类群体死亡的原因:竟然是因为吃酿酒葡萄残渣被醉死的。
  
  
  
  请看相关报道:
  
  
  
  There have been several recent mass die-offs of birds in various parts of the United States and even Sweden, and explanations have ranged from some sort of climate change-related cause to the birds running into each other aloft.
  
  
  
  美国多个地区、甚至瑞典都出现了多次大规模鸟类群体死亡事件,解释原因也各有不同,比如某种气候变化导致的原因,或者在高空出现互相冲撞。
  
  
  
  文中的mass die-offs就是指“群体死亡”,die-off就是指“相继死去直至死光”,而die out则着重强调“灭绝、消失”。Mass用来强调“大规模的”,比如weapon of mass destruction(大规模杀伤性武器)。
  
  
  
  我们平时常用the masses来表示“群众,平民百姓”,而the mass of something则表示“大多数”。商品面向大众、适销对路就会产生mass-market(大众市场),但也需要在mass media(大众传媒)上做广告,以扩大知名度。要想提高产量,就需要进行mass-produce(批量生产、大量生产)。在美国的州名里,Mass.就代表Massachusetts(马萨诸塞州),也可以简称为“麻省”。

  你是"零号身材"么?”--时代新词盘点123
  我们之前说过现在很多网购族都流行到商场试衣服、抄号,然后到网店去购买。今天我们就来说说跟“抄号族”很相关的一个话题,size zero(零号)。这在美国是服装标准中的最小号,那么能够穿进这个型号衣服的身材自然就可以称为“零号身材”了。
  
  
  Regarded as the minimum size in US clothing, “size zero” now refers to those unbelievably skinny people (especially women),or trends associated with them. The super skinny style sprung up on fashion industry runways and later was adopted by a world of young girls targetting a bony “size zero” figure.
  
  “零号”是美国服装标准中的最小号,现在多用来指那些身形及其瘦削的人(尤其是女性),或者他们这些人引出的(追逐小号身材的)风潮。这种超瘦的身形最初见于时尚界的T台,后来被更多追求骨感“零号”身材的年轻女孩子所接受。
  
  Women might feel pressured into being able to fit the smallest clothing size available, due to the prevalence of the ideal of a very slim, hourglass shape. Whilst it is perfectly possible for an adult or teenaged female to be healthy and fit a size zero, it should be acknowledged that normal differences in Female body shape make this goal unattainable and unadvisable for many.
  
  由于普遍接受的理想身材是苗条而又玲珑有致的“沙漏”型身材,因此很多女性都为了能够穿进最小号的衣服而承受了不少压力。虽说一位健康的成年女性或者十几岁的女孩子是有可能穿进一件零号的衣服的,但我们要知道的是,女性身形的正常尺寸差别并不可能让很多人都能够穿进零号的衣服,而且我们也不建议大家做这种尝试。

  我们上次讲了两个由house发展而来的习惯用语。今天继续学两个。第一个习惯用语有两种略有差异的形式。它们是:bring down the house or bring the house down。Bring down the house和bring the house down,尽管形式不同但是意义完全一样。Bring down意思是“使……倒下,” 可能有人因而以为bring down the house 就解释“推倒房子”了。这想法也有点道理。
  
  
  
    一百来年前有个滑稽演员在剧场说了个笑话,但是全场观众却无动于衷,于是他只得自我解嘲地这样说:Don't laugh so hard! You'll bring the house down - it's an old building, you know。他说:可别笑得太厉害了。要知道这是栋老房子,笑声太大会把它震坍的。这也许是bring the house down这个习惯用语的出典,但是久而久之bring the house down有点偏离原意了。它解释赢得雷鸣般的掌声和震耳欲聋的喝彩声;总之是得到了高度赞赏。
  
  
  
    既然这个习惯用语出自剧场,我们就先来听个有关纽约百老汇剧场歌舞喜剧的例子吧,里面number这个词有特殊意思,解释歌舞剧的部分。
  
  
  
    例句-1:That musical number at the end of the first act always brings down the house -- the dancers wear beautiful costumes, the song itself is really catchy and the singer has a terrific voice.
  
  
  
    他说:在第一幕结尾的歌舞场面总是让全场观众为之倾倒:舞蹈演员穿着漂亮的服装,歌曲本身已经够迷人的了,而歌手又有一付美妙的好嗓子。
  
  
  
    这里的brings down the house意思是令观众为之倾倒。
  
  
  
    ******
  
  
  
    Bring down the house不仅用来说艺术表演引起轰动,也可以指精彩的运动比赛。下面就有个例子。这段话说的是一次扣人心弦的网球锦标赛。
  
  
  
    例句-2:The match lasted three hours and it was the best tennis I've ever seen. It brought down the house: after the last point the crowd stood up to applaud both players as hard as they could.
  
  
  
    他说:比赛延续了三小时。这是我有生以来看过的最精彩的一次网球赛。它令全场轰动。在最后一分之后观众都起立竭尽全力地为两位选手鼓掌。
  
  
  
    这里的bring down the house意思还是令人倾倒。
  
  
  
    ******
  
  
  
    我们再学个也有house这个词的习惯用语:like a house on fire。 习惯用语like a house on fire已经有两百多年的历史了。归根溯源,它是来自早年美国西部的拓荒生活的。当年垦荒的人们砍伐树木开辟农场,并就地取材用伐下的原木搭房子。
  
  
  
    这些原木没经过木材处理还带着树脂所以一点就着。原木造的房子一旦着火,那就来势迅猛,一栋房子一眨眼就化为灰烬。
  
  
  
    奇怪的是人们却没在意这种意外事件的灾难性后果,倒是对这种迅雷不及掩耳的火势印象深刻,于是就采用like a house on fire来比喻迅速地一举成名。我们来听个例子,说的是一部杰出的新电影。
  
  
  
    例句-3:This movie has everything: an exciting story, fantastic special effects and top popular stars. So it's going like a house on fire: the first week it was out it took in 25 million dollars.
  
  
  
    他说:这部电影万事俱备:扣人心弦的故事情节,奇妙逼真的特技效果,再加上光彩夺目的明星阵容,所以这部片子立即引起轰动;上映第一周就创收二千五百万美元。
  
  
  
    这里的like a house on fire用来比喻迅速成名。
  
  
  
    ******
  
  
  
    Like a house on fire也可以带有浪漫情调。下面就有这么个例子。说话的人把Sallie小姐介绍给了弟弟Joe。我们来听听进展怎样。
  
  
  
    例句-4:I was worried that Joe and Sally are so different they wouldn't like each other. But they're getting along like a house on fire and tonight Joe says he's going to ask her to marry him.
  
  
  
    他说:我起先担心Joe和Sally全然不同,可能不会相互爱慕,但是他们的爱情却如同野火春风般地迅速发展。Joe说今晚他要向Sally求婚了。
  
  
  
    这里的like a house on fire用来描述爱情的迅速发展。

  Hectic work schedules are creating a generation of 'Maybe Later' children whose parents never have enough time to spend with them.
  
  忙碌的工作安排正创造出一代“以后再说”儿童,他们的父母总是没有时间跟他们待在一起。
  
  The phrase comes from the response dished out when Mummy or Daddy are asked to play a game or read a story or simply run around the garden.
  
  'Maybe Later' children(“以后再说”儿童)这个说法来源于那些忙碌的父母,当孩子要求爸爸或妈妈陪他们一起玩游戏或给他们读个故事,或者仅仅是跟他们一起围着花园跑一圈时,爸爸妈妈们最常给出的就是这个回答“Maybe Later”(以后再说)。
  
  Despite children being parents' 'absolute highest priority in life', 80 percent admit they don't devote enough time to them, researchers found.
  
  研究人员发现,虽然在父母的生活中,孩子们占据最重要的位置,但有80%的父母承认自己在孩子们身上花的时间太少。

  “淑商”顾名思义,就是淑女商(gentlewoman quotient)。“淑”这个字,在中国古代泛指心地善良,性格温柔,具有这样“淑”的女性能让男人产生强烈的“与之相伴,长相厮守”的愿望。

  那绝不可能/哪有这样的事!
  
  
  
  这句话表示的意思类似于“That's impossible!”或者“It can't be true!”,说话人在说这句话时表达的是一种强烈的否定。
  
  
  
  2. How about that!
  
  
  
  
  那可太好了,太棒了!/真是令人难以置信!
  
  
  
  很多人理解这句话的意思就是“what do you think of it?(你觉得怎么样?)”。其实,“how about it”的意思才是“你觉得怎么样”。当你听到一些令人难以置信或难以理解的事时你就可以说“Wow, how about that”,翻译过来就是“竟然会有这种事!”或“真是令人难以置信!”。当然,这句话也可以在肯定对方的建议或事情时使用,表示“那可太好了,太棒了”。
  
  
  
  3. What a day!
  
  
  
  多......的一天啊!
  
  
  
  这句话在不同的情境下含义不同。比如你在单位折腾了一天,累得要死,回家把自己往床上一扔,然后意味深长的说what a day! 意思就是“这一天把我累的!”。再有,如果你早上摔了一跤,中午吃饭时又丢了钱包。总之,倒霉的事都赶到一天了,你也可以用这句话来表示“What a day! Just my luck!”(今天真倒霉!就这命了!)还有,如果你向女朋友求婚成功,晚上回家前又捡了一个iPhone4,你也可以说“What a day!”(今天真是太走运了!)。这句话还可以改成what a night!/What a weekend!/What a man!等等。
  
  
  
  4. What's your story, morning glory?
  
  
  
  瞧你高兴的,有什么好事啊?
  
  
  
  先说一下,morning glory就是“牵牛花”。如果你看一个熟人从远处走来,一脸的笑容,你就可以说这句话,翻译过来就是“这是有什么好事啊,看你高兴的!”说话的感觉是轻松幽默的。
  
  
  
  5. If I tell you, I'd have to kill you.
  
  
  
  就不告诉你。
  
  
  
  这句话通常是在一种轻松的环境下,你不愿意回答对方问题而说的话,字面意思很容易懂,翻译成汉语的感觉就是“嘿嘿,我就不告诉你!”
  
  
  
  6. I need it like a hole in my head.
  
  
  
  我根本就不需要这个。
  
  
  
  这句话表面上没有否定词,表达得确是实强烈的否定含义。
  
  
  
  7. He is a real go-better.
  
  
  
  他的确是个能成事的人。
  
  
  
  这句话里go-better是个关键词,表示越来越好。英语里表达“成功”就是get there,所以口语里说“now we are getting somewhere”表达的意思就是“看来我们的谈话(努力,尝试等等)有了进展。”鼓励别人时也可以说You are going places.(你会成功的。)
  
  
  
  8. That's all there's to it.
  
  
  
  事情大概就是这样。
  
  
  
  
  它表达的就是“事情大概就是这样”。其实类似这样的句子很多,单词都是小学生都认识,可是真正能恰到好处的用出来的人却寥寥无几。比如:I don’t know what came over me.(我不知道自己哪根筋不对。)等等。
  
  
  
  9. She doesn't like this a little.
  
  
  
  这句话应该翻译成“她可不仅是喜欢而已”。英语中有很多有否定词但含义却截然不同的表达。比如I'm not a little cold.(我很冷)、It is a good father that knows his son.(再好的父亲也未必了解自己的孩子)、No wisdom like silence.(智者寡言)、That's the last thing I want to do.(我最不愿意做那件事)等等。
  
  
  
  10. Nice guys finish last.
  
  
  
  好人不得志啊!
  
  
  
  你有没有发现,生活中总是有一群人,人品差不说,长相也属于“龙飞凤舞”型。可是人家的女朋友就是比你的漂亮;还有就是平时花钱大手大脚,可是一买彩票就中大奖,这种“狗屎运”的人比比皆是。而自己呢,努力了,拼搏了,奋斗了,结果总是不如人意。这种情况就可以用这句“nice guys finish last”来形容了,这句话中有点“好人不得志”或“好人难做”的味道
