世界如此美妙,你却如此暴躁,这样不好,不好,面对这样的伙伴,我们应该如何表达让他们放松冷静呢?本周实用短语,为你揭晓。

Hello everybody! Welcome to week 8 of your Useful English podcast! I hope you  all have been having a fantastic week so far. It seems like everyone had a good Halloween last week— I loved seeing pictures from some of the parties! You guys had some really awesome and spooky costumes. This was the first year that I went trick-or-treating with my little sister. She was dressed up as a scarecrow 稻草人 and looked adorable 讨喜. I didn’t spend too much time on my outfit, but ended up going as a cave-woman.

Here’s a picture of us before going out for Halloween celebrations with one of her friends. We had a great time and I hope you all did too.

Alright, focusing on episode 1 of Modern Family, this week I’ve got some phrases for you that will teach you how to finish something that you’ve started, how to react appropriately to certain situations, and a phrase that asks for your sincere agreement! Let’s get started.

Follow through 跟进

When we follow through on something, we finish it until its completion. This could be said for a work or school assignment, a personal project, goal or task, or even a relationship.

For example, you all have made a commitment to learning English. I encourage you to follow through on your plans to learn a second language and to use it to better your life and the world around you. Here’s another example, in the states we have a saying that says, “your eyes are bigger than your stomach.” You know, when you order way too much food at a restaurant because you thought you could eat more than you could? When you order too much, do you give up and stop eating? No! You’ve got to follow through and finish the meal! When your school assignments get difficult, do you drop out of school and tell your teachers you’ve had enough? No! Follow through and persevere!

当我们完成某些事情时,我们会完成它直到完成。这可以说是工作或学校作业,个人项目,目标或任务,甚至是关系。

例如,你们都承诺要学习英语。我鼓励您完成学习第二语言的计划,并用它来改善您的生活和周围的世界。在美国还有另一种说法,“你的眼睛比你的胃大。”也就是我们说的“眼大肚小”。 你知道,当你在餐馆点太多的食物,因为你认为你可以吃下超过你的能力?当你点了太多时,你会放弃并停止进食吗?没有!你必须跟进并完成这顿饭!当你的学校作业变得困难时,你是否辍学并告诉你的老师你已经受够了?没有!跟进并坚持下去!

Live down here 生活得放松一点

After Gloria tells off one of the other soccer mom’s at her son’s soccer game, Jay scolds her, telling her that her emotions run very high and it might be better to live “down here” a little bit. What he is referring to is a more relaxed state of living. He’s basically saying that she’s a little too excitable and angry, and that she could be a little less reactive and emotional like people who “live down here” a little bit. Have you ever heard of the phrase “cool as a cucumber”? Meaning unstressed, relaxed, easy going. Well, Jay from Modern Family is more of the “cool as a cucumber” type. And Gloria… well… she’s a bit more excitable. Do you have anyone in your life that you want to tell to live down here a little more? Maybe you could also tell them to take it down a notch? You guys remember that from last week?

在Gloria在儿子的足球比赛中斥责了其他一位足球妈妈之后,Jay骂了她,指出她的情绪非常高昂,如果可以生活再“放松”一点点就好了。他所指的是一种更放松的生活状态。他基本上就是说她有点过于兴奋和愤怒,并且希望她可能会像那些“平易近人”的人一样不那么大反应和情绪化。你听说过“酷如黄瓜”这句话吗?意思是不受压力,轻松,随和。嗯,摩登家庭的Jay更像是“酷如黄瓜”类型。而Gloria…..嗯……她有点兴奋。你生命中有一些你想让他更平静的人吗?也许你也可以告诉他们平静一些?你们还记得上周的表达吗?

You’re with me on this, right? 你是支持我的,对吗?


This is an informal way to make sure that someone agrees with you on a certain issue or opinion. You could also ask, “are you with me on this?” Or,  “you know what I’m saying?” Let’s say that you are talking to someone about your feelings about pollution. You think that pollution is hazardous to people’s health and that more precautions should be taken to decrease pollutants in the air. You may ask your friend, you’re with me on this right? Basically you’re asking your friend if they agree with your opinion on pollution. Here’s a couple more examples; I just don’t think it’s right to take advantage of people’s kindness. Are you with me on this? Or, Practicing English everyday really does make a difference, you know what I’m saying?

这是一种非正式的方式,以确保某人在某个问题或意见上与您达成一致。你也可以问,“你和我在一起吗?”或者,“你知道我在说什么吗?”如果我们说你正在和别人谈论你对污染的看法。您认为污染对人们的健康有害,应采取更多预防措施来减少空气中的污染物。你可能会问你的朋友,你和我在一起吗?基本上你问你的朋友他们是否同意你对污染的看法。这里有几个例子;我认为利用人们的善意是不对的。你跟我在一起吗?或者,每天练习英语确实有所作为,你知道我在说什么吗?

Alright everybody, I’m going to follow through to the end of the podcast and finish up today’s episode. I hope you all can learn to live down here a little bit and find some times to relax through whatever stressful situations life may throw at you. I think learning to relax and breathe when things are stressful can help us to persevere and achieve our goals. Are you all with me on this?

I hope you all enjoyed learning this week’s useful English phrases from episode one of Modern Family! I will catch you guys next week! Stay happy, healthy, and hard-working!
