今日短语:宣泄压抑之情 Let off steam

2015-05-06    来源:BBC英伦网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

宣泄压抑之情
Let off steam

【今日短语】

我们可以用非正式表达 let off steam 来表示宣泄被压抑的情感、释放情感,在日常对话中尤其被用来形容“把心里的话都一股脑地说出来”。

【例句】

1. Ruth spent the whole afternoon complaining about her boss. She needed to let off some steam.

2. We often go jogging after work to let off steam.

请注意:另一个短语 run out of steam 的意思是“精疲力尽,在事情进行过程中突然失去精力或兴趣”。

【例句】

1. My mum can talk for hours before she runs out of steam.

2. The beginning of his speech was fantastic but after a while he started to run out of steam.

【今日小常识】

The English city of Bath was founded by the Romans, who were attracted by the hot mineral springs in the area. The Great Bath in this photo used to be inside a hall that was 40 metres high. For visitors at that time, this was probably the largest building they had ever entered.

英国著名城市巴斯是由古罗马人创建的。罗马人当年被此地区的温泉所吸引。图片中看到的是巴斯大浴室,这个浴室原来建在一个高为40米的大厅里。对当时的参观者来说,这可能是他们见到过的最高的大楼了。
