英語是非常活潑的語言,處處顯現美國人的風趣幽默。版主今天在觀賞 Youtube 的桌球賽事時,聽到評論員用了一個非常有趣的比喻:just what the doctor ordered

讓我們先來看這個短語如何使用。請各位網友看下面的影片,你在 2:40 的放映點時可以聽到評論員用了這個短語。

Just what the doctor ordered for the Korean crowd here. 這句話是什麼意思?明明是桌球比賽,怎麼會跟醫生扯上關係呢?

其實,這只是一種幽默的比喻說法。我們看醫生不就是為了治療病痛嗎?醫生開的藥方,就是要我們舒服的東西,所以可以用來比喻 exactly what sb wants or needs (某人需要的東西)。

這場賽事是國際桌總舉辦的韓國公開賽,評論員在說這句話之前,韓國選手 Yoon Jae Young 剛好搶下一局,跟中國選手許昕打成一比一平手的局面,這正是韓國觀眾想要的結果,所以評論員才脫口說出: This is just what the doctor ordered for the Korean crowd here

語言是活的,我們應該以愉快的方式學習英文。《空中英語教室》的六月號有一篇文章是 Fun Language Facts,內文提到:

Language is quite fascinating. Here are some intriguing facts about the English language:

* Go is the shortest complete sentence in the language.

* The sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” uses every letter in the alphabet.

* Queue is the only word in the English language that is pronounced the same even if the last four letters are removed.

…….

The word tips is actually an acronym that stands for “To Insure Prompt Service.” That makes a lot of sense considering that tips help people to do things better or more efficiently.

With so many fun facts to learn and share, language learning should never be dull!

Yeah! Friends, keep up the good work. Good luck!
