搭配 “cram for something“ 的意思是 “在短时间内学习大量知识,突击复习“,多用来形容为了应付考试,临阵抱佛脚的做法。动词 “cram“ 的本意是 “填满、塞进“,这里,它比喻 “快速地往脑子里塞入很多内容、死记硬背“。

例句:

Susan can’t come out with us tonight because she needs to cram for the maths test tomorrow morning. She hasn’t even started yet!

苏珊今晚来不了了,因为她得为明天早上的数学测验临阵磨枪。她还没开始复习呢!

Why do you always leave studying until the last minute, Joe? You hate cramming! It stresses you out and then you do badly. You never learn, do you?

你为什么总是到最后关头才开始学习呢,乔?你又特别不擅长临时抱佛脚!弄得精神紧张,结果成绩一塌糊涂。但你就是不长记性,是不是?

I need to start preparing for exams weeks in advance to do well, but my brother has always been able to cram and get a great mark! It’s so annoying!

为了能考出好成绩,我提前好久就开始复习备考,但我弟弟总是能靠临时抱佛脚,拿高分!真气人!
