4.我的舞也跳得不好。

B.I don t dance well too.
看看你答对了几道题。建议先做题再看下面讲解哦!


1.你愿意参加我们的晚会吗?
误:Would you like to join our party on Friday?
正:Would you like to come to our party on Friday night?

提示:join往往是指参加俱乐部或者协会,如:join a health club; join the Communist Party.事实上,常常与party搭配的动词是come 或者go。如go a wild party,或者come to a Christmas Party。


2.我家有四口人。
中式英语:My family has four people.
地道表达:There are four of us in my family.

解析
由于汉语和英语的语序不同,说话的重点也不同,英语表达偏向用“it”,“there be”以及名词性主语开头。而中国学生则习惯用“I,we,they,my”等开头的句子,不仅通篇句式单一,也打破了英语表达的语言习惯。

 

3.她有点婴儿肥。
中式英语:She is fat.
地道表达:She has a plump face. / She is well developed.

解析
在英美人眼里,说别人“fat”一看你们就不是“best friend”,甚至还会引起误解,让人以为你“歧视胖子”。英语,特别是正式场合用语,讲究委婉与礼貌,英语中直接说人fat,有吵架或骂人的感觉。若一定要表达胖,可以换作丰满或其他褒义词。

4.我的舞也跳得不好。
中式英语:I don t dance well too.
地道表达:I am not a very good dancer either.

提示:当我们说不擅长做什么事情的时候,英语里面通常用not good at something,英语的思维甚至直接踊跃到:我不是一个好的舞者。
