【口语讲解】

1.burst into flames:欲火焚身

2.way too special:非常特别

way的用法:

“way”有副词的词性,表示“远远地,大大地”,所以我们可以说“he is way too busy”,意思就是他超级忙。另外我们说谁的思想远远超过了什么,way就需要派上用场了,  “His ideas were way ahead of his time”,说的就是他的思想远远超越了他那个时代。假如有一个十分漂亮的女孩子喜欢你,但是你不知道该说什么了,那只有“she is way too pretty”来安慰自己的心灵吧。

不知道大家有没有听过一首英文歌曲叫做“way back into love”, 这就是way 最简单的口语用法了,重回爱之路,或者说是找回爱的方式。那么你最好的学习方式是什么呢?“what is the best way to learn for you?”。当我们想询问一些学习的经验和方法的时候,way就在你的身边呀,请放心大胆的用吧。

同时“way”的后面可以接很多的介词。“I am on my way to the store right now.”我正去往商店的路上。所以大家会说散步是放松的一个好方式,“Walking is good way to relax”。“way”的组合有如下:way to do,way of 或者直接加上从句。

“way”的词组很多,那么口语中常用的那些你都知道吗?

all the way: 一路上,一直,完全。

I’ m with you all the way. 我完全同意并支持你。

By the way: 顺便地,附带说。

By the way, there’ s a message for you. 对了,有你的一个信息。

Come sb’ s way 发生或来到某人处

An opportunity like that doesn’ t often come my way. 这样的机会可不常落在我头上。

Look the other way 避而不看某人

When I saw Jane in the street, she just looked the other way. 当我街上看到简时,她只是装作没看见。

那么除了这些短语,关于“way”的习惯用语都有哪些比较常用的呢,现在和大家分享一下:

Break down old way 破除旧习

Wind one’ s way 蜿蜒前进

Cut both ways (议论,行为等)双方都起作用,模棱两可

Know one’ s way around 熟悉业务

Put oneself out of the way 牺牲自己以助他人

3.I am famished:我饿死了。

4.come out of your shell:释放自己

上周末我在Melissa的派对上看到你了,你玩的开心么?那时候你看起来情绪有点低落。

Yeah,I had fun.it just takes me a little bit of time to come out of my shell when I'm around a lot of people.
