今日短语:冒险尝试 Take the plunge

2015-03-30    来源:BBC英伦网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

冒险尝试
Take the plunge

【今日短语】

动词 to plunge 是往下跳的意思,比如:When we arrived at the lake, my brother plunged into the cold water.

短语 take the plunge 往往用来形容我们下定决心做某件高难度的事情。

【例句】

1. I'm going to take the plunge and move to France. I've been dreaming of it for years and I'm finally going to do it!

2. My brother is going to take the plunge and quit his job. He's been meaning to leave for months.

3. Let's take the plunge and buy a house!

请注意:另一个从跳水运动演变而来的表达是 to dive / jump in with both feet, 两只脚一起跳下水。这个表达的意思是很快全身心地投入某件事情。

【例句】

1. Rachel jumped in with both feet when she started her new job. She learnt everything very quickly.

2. When I started English lessons I dived in with both feet: I practised every day and rapidly improved.

【今日小常识】

Jumping is a motion people and animals do to move around. Often we see people jump for joy, this means showing happiness. However jumping can be risky too, as in the cases of extreme sports such as bunge jumping or base jumping, where accidents are often fatal.

跳跃是人和动物移动的一种方式。我们经常看到人们会为欢乐而跳跃,这是一种表达喜悦的心情的方式。不过跳跃也有危险,尤其是一些冒险体育活动,比如蹦极和极限跳伞,如果事故发生往往是致命的。
