Welcome to English in a Minute.

欢迎收听本期的《一分钟英语》。

Sometimes, American English is confusing and hard to understand, like: burn the midnight oil.

有时候,美语有些糊里糊涂的,很费解,就比如:burn the midnight oil(挑灯夜战)。
Everybody knows Americans burn a lot of oil, but is there a special oil that they burn in the middle of the night?
大家都知道美国人要烧掉很多油,但是这里是有一种专门在晚上烧的油么?
I have big exam tomorrow.
我明天有场重要的考试。
Are you prepared?
你准备了么?
No, not at all! I have to burn the midnight oil, I need to do well on this exam.
没有,没怎么准备。我今天不得不挑灯夜战(burn the midnight oil),我需要取得一个不错的成绩。
Americans are not burning a special oil reserved for the middle of the night, they are just staying up very late.
美国人不是晚上才去烧什么特别的油,他们只是要熬夜到很晚。
This actually makes sense if you think of a candle, or a lantern, and you have a lot of work to do, that may take you all night.
如果你想想蜡烛、提灯,就能够明白短语的意思了。有很多工作要做,这也许会花费整晚的时间。
This is a phrase everybody will understand, and you can use this phrase when you have a lot of work to do, and not that much time to do it in.
这是一个众人皆知的短语。当你有很多事情要做或者没有太多时间做某事的时候,你就可以使用这个短语。
And that's English in a Minute.
以上就是本期的《一分钟英语》。
