怎麼訓練英文聽力與口說

 

答案詳解

(A) I know there is a newly opened resort on the outskirts of Taipei.

這句話的意思是「我知道有一個新開幕的渡假村在台北的郊區」。這完全是天外飛來一筆,不符合情境喔。

A newly opened resort 是「新開幕的渡假村」,on the outskirts of Taipei 是「在台北的郊區」。

 

(B) No. I don’t know anything about the project.

這句話的意思是「我不知道任何關於那個案子的事」。講這句應該會被打吧,是上次開會時睡著了嗎?

 

(C) Well, I am still working on it.

正解!這句是「我還在努力做這件事」的意思。

Work on something 是「努力做某事」、「努力改善某事」,再用這個片語舉個例子:

I really need to work on my English pronunciation if I want to receive a high score on the oral test.
(如果我想要在口說考試得高分,我真的必須要努力改善我的英文發音。)

 

(D) I don’t think I can make it to the meeting today.

這句話的意思是「我不覺得今天我有辦法去開會」。

Make it to 是指「成功地到某地方、程度」,再用這個片語舉個例子:

We finally made it to Green Island at 4:00. This place is so far away from Taipei!
(我們終於在四點抵達綠島。這個地方離台北好遠啊!)

She is very ambitious, but I doubt she will ever make it to the top. Her planning skills and communication skills are awful.
(她很有雄心壯志,但我不太相信她可以爬到最上面的位置。她的規劃能力和溝通能力很差。)
