Idioms & Phrases 5X12 Project Day 9

从 1 月 22 日开始,我就开始寒假班的征程了。从早上到晚,势必是没有时间写原创文了。但是,学习还是不能停止的。年前年后我共有 12 天课,每天我会分享 5 个 idioms & phrases (习语和短语)。也就是说,如果你跟着我的节奏每天定量去学习,那么一个寒假你至少能掌握 60 个有意思的习语和短语。当然,你可能会问“为什么要学习习语和短语?”,这事儿我说了不算,在这里引用一段文字希望能让你感受到习语的用处——

Idiom: a manner of speaking that is natural to native speakers of a language

Every language has its own collection of wise sayings. They offer advice about how to live and also transfer some underlying ideas, principles and values of a given culture / society. These sayings are called "idioms" - or proverbs if they are longer. These combinations of words have (rarely complete sentences) a "figurative meaning" meaning, they basically work with "pictures".

如果你被这番话说服了,那么就行动起来吧。每个短语都会配上简单的英文注释和例句,相信对大家的理解会有帮助的 _
