第八部 第八課: get it together , tough

 
  • 今天 Larry 要開車去接李華一起去上課.李華會學到兩個常用語: get it togethertough
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua!? You're not ready for school! We need to go now! It's already 8:30.
  • 啊~,Larry,你怎麼這麼早就來啦!現在幾點了?
  • Get it together, Li Hua! It's already 8:30! We need to leave in fifteen minutes, or we'll be late to class!
  • Get it together? (Groans and yawns) 把什麼放一起啊?你在說什麼嘛?
  • I said "get it together"! That means, get organized, focus on what you need to do.
  • 哦~,你是要我趕快準備好上學.Get it together 就是要人打起精神做該做的事.那除此之外,Larry,get it together 還可以用在什麼場合呢?
  • "To get it together", or "get one's act together" can also mean something very general, such as arranging one's life for the better.
  • 哎喲~, get it together 既可以指準備去上學,又可以指把一個人的生活安排得更好.哎,Larry,這,這聽起來很複雜哎,我都有點糊塗了。
  • Here's an example: After finishing college, I didn't work hard to plan for the future for several years. But finally I got my act together, and got accepted into graduate school.
  • 大學畢業後悠閒幾年,沒有長遠打算這在年輕人裡也是常事.不過啊,你們這些生在美國的孩子啊真幸福.要是在中國,錯過一次機會以後啊恐怕就難囉。
  • That's right... here in the U.S. people usually have several chances to get it together. One of my friends almost failed his first semester of college. But he got his act together, and now he's a Ph. D. candidate at Yale.
  • 哇~!你這個朋友啊還真是好樣兒的哎.大學第一學期差點兒不及格,現在居然是耶魯大學的博士生啦.可有的人犯了錯,一開始失敗了就很難再振作起來,做好事情囉!
  • Right, right... enough talking! Get it together, Li Hua. If you're not ready in ten minutes, I'm leaving!
  • 哎喲!好啦!好啦!別催我嘛!再給我 5 分鐘!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • All right, let's go. Now.
  • 等一等!還不能走啦!我還沒吃早餐呢!
  • Well, that's tough. You'll just have to wait until after your first class to eat something. Now let's go!
  • Tough? 你是要我堅強一點,就這麼餓著啊?
  • No, that's not what I mean. When I say "that's tough" that means "too bad". Sometimes, you can just say "tough" by itself. Anyway, It's too bad that you can't eat breakfast, but we have to go now.
  • 哦~, Tough 就是指:沒辦法啦,你就忍著點吧.哎,Larry,你真不講道理哎!
  • That's right, its not very polite to say "that's tough!" when someone complains or has a problem. Usually when you say "that's tough" it means you don't care about their problem.
  • 原來你真的一點都不同情我啊!That's tough,是不太禮貌的用法,表示你啊根本不在乎別人的問題.哎呀,Larry,我們可不可以至少去一下麥當勞買點吃的!我這樣肚子空空的上課也不能專心。
  • That's just tough, Li Hua. We don't have time to get you breakfast. You should have gotten up earlier.
  • 可是...,可是起的晚又不是我的錯,是我的鬧鐘壞了嘛!
  • Tough! I don't care why you're late this morning, I just want to get to class on time. Let's go.
  • 你真是毫無同情心.我既沒有吃早餐,我連今天上課要用的材料都還沒看呢!
  • Tough. You can look at you notes in the car. I'm leaving right now... you'd better come with me if you want a ride to school.
  • 好啦!好啦!我來了啦!喔!我真的好餓哦!
  • Tough, Li Hua. If you'd just get yourself together, this kind of thing wouldn't happen. Let's go!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到兩個常用語,一個是: get it together,也可以說 get one's act together,意思是「打起精神,做好該做的事」;另一個常用語是: tough,意思是「情況就是這樣,沒有辦法了」.這是不太禮貌的說法,表示你對別人的困難不在乎。
