第六部 第十一課: hang in there , to be stressed out

 
  • 今天 Larry 到李華的宿舍去串門兒,李華會學到兩個常用語: hang in thereto be stressed out
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Li Hua, you look exhausted. Is everything OK?
  • 哎喲~, Larry, 我得在星期五以前趕出兩篇論文,星期五啊還有一門課要大考,你說我能不累嗎? I AM exhausted!
  • Hang in there, Li Hua! After Friday it will be all over, and then you can relax.
  • Hang in there? 那是什麼意思啊?
  • Hang in there just means "to keep enduring" or "to persist through a difficult situation."
  • 哦~, hang in there 的意思就是,在困難的情況下再忍一忍,或者啊堅持下去. Hang in there – 嗯~,這個說法很有意思哎.疑?不過 Larry, hang 這個詞本意不是 「懸掛」 嗎?
  • That's right, but "hang in there" can also mean "to stay the same" or "to not give up".
  • 哦~,我明白了, hang in there 就是要 「堅持下去,不要放棄」 的意思。
  • Exactly! Remember last semester when you had two tests and a term paper due the same week, you hung in there and even managed to get good grades. When things get tough, you just have to hang in there.
  • 哎~,我當然記得上學期那個禮拜啊,一個星期裡,我有兩門課要考試,還要交一篇學期論文.我當時咬緊牙關堅持學習,結果啊還得了好分數.所以你說,這就是 hang in there 的意思吧?
  • You're right! Let me give you another example. If someone is having an emergency and calls the 9-1-1 emergency hotline, the operator might say, "Hang in there, an ambulance will be there in a few minutes".
  • 哦~,你說要是遇到緊急情況,打 911 電話,接線員可能會說,Hang in there! 也就是說:「別著急,堅持一下,救護車馬上就到」 的意思。
  • So, just hang in there, Li Hua. You'll finish the papers before Friday and get good grades for the test too!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 嗨,Larry, 我剛剛考試考完啦.現在好了,我可以輕鬆一下了。
  • Well, I'm glad to see you so happy now that your test is over and those papers are done. You were really stressed out last week!
  • 哎,就是啊,我啊現在好高興喔.疑?可是,你剛說我上星期怎麼了啊?Stressed out ?
  • I said you were "stressed out". Stressed out means that you were under so much stress and pressure that you barely made it.
  • 哦~, stressed out 意思就是 「壓力太大,幾乎承受不了」. 嗯~, 這話一點沒錯,我上個星期啊,還真是有點頂不住了.疑? Larry, 你倒是好像不太容易 stressed out 哦?
  • That's because I know that to be stressed out usually makes things worse. I find that I do better on a test when I'm not stressed out about it.
  • 嗯~,我啊也有這種感覺哎,你愈是感到壓力大,愈會壞事.在這種情況下,考試啊都是考不好的。
  • Last week, you appeared a little bit impatient, but I understand it's because you were really stressed out about your papers. So I encouraged you to HANG IN THERE.
  • 我上星期顯得很煩躁呀?我自己還沒有察覺呢.Larry, 我啊要是對你顯得不耐煩,對不起喲!下次再遇到壓力很大的時候,也就是我 stressed out 的時候,我一定會記住,要堅持下去,要 hang in there.
  • Oh, don't worry about it. The last thing I want is for you to stress out about making me upset. By the way, did you call Michael last night?
  • 對啊,我打了.他說啊他還不太習慣那兒的生活.我讓他 hang in there! Try not to be stressed out. 他啊還讓我向你問好呢!
  • That's nice!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語,一個是: hang in there,表示「堅持下去、不要放棄」.另一個是: to be stressed out,意思是「壓力太大」。
