2015-10-13

今天CES想和大家聊聊和奶油有關的片語,相信對大家準備IELTS考試會蠻有幫助的唷~

 

Butter Someone Up

 

butter someone up是指討好或巴結,以利之後從那個人身上得到一點好處的意思。

EX: He was so keen to get the job that he spent his time buttering up the boss.

例:他非常渴望可以得到那份工作,所以他花了很多時間去巴結老闆。

 

Butter wouldn't melt in someone’s mouth

 

butter wouldn't melt in someone’s mouth 指的是看起來很無辜但是其實卻不然的意思,中文我們可能會解釋成道貌岸然的感覺。

EX:The boy who stole the purse looked as if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

例:那個偷錢包的小男生看起來很無辜,但其實卻不是!

 

祝大家準備IELTS順利唷laugh
