今日短语:在同一条船上 In the same boat

2015-05-29    来源:BBC英伦网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

在同一条船上
In the same boat

【今日短语】

当大家都坐在同一条船上的时候 in the same boat, 这就意味着所有人处境相同。

【例句】

1. Youth unemployment is so high in Europe at the moment but everyone's in the same boat– no-one can find a job.

2. The whole class came down with chicken pox on a school trip. It completely ruined the holiday but at least all the children were in the same boat.

3. There were hundreds of us waiting to get a visa from the embassy. Knowing everyone was in the same boat was made the long wait easier.

请注意:另一个短语 to miss the boat 的意思是坐失良机,机会已经失去了。

【例句】

1. I wanted tickets to see Adele but by the time I went online they were already sold out. I missed the boat.

【今日小常识】

Boats and ships are often referred to as 'she' and 'her' rather than 'it' and 'its'. Sometimes people do the same thing with cars, but it's less common.

在英语里,当人们在谈论船舶时,常会用女性“她”或“她的”来指某支船,而不用动物“它”或“它的”。有时候,人们也会用女“她”来特指一辆汽车。
