7  COMPARE APPLES AND ORANGES

無法相提并論

Apples are very different from oranges both in looks and taste. It’s hard to compare two things that are so unlike each other. So then, to compare apples and oranges is to compare two very different things.

無論是味道還是外觀,蘋果和橘子都很不一樣。很難去比較完全不同的兩種東西。因此,比較蘋果和橘子就是比較兩種完全不同的東西。

I’m not sure which I enjoy more—pottery or dancing. It’s like comparing apples and oranges.

9  EAT LIKE A BIRD

胃口小

How much does a bird eat? Not very much, right? So to eat like a bird is to eat very little.

一只鳥能吃多少東西?吃不了多少,對吧?所以eat like a bird意為吃的非常少。

Don’t trouble yourself cooking such a big meal. I eat like a bird.

你就不要費勁兒做飯了,我吃的很少。

Now, a horse is much bigger than a bird. So how much do you think a horse eats? That’s right, to eat like a horse is to eat a large amount of food.

馬比鳥大得多了。那么一匹馬能吃多少東西呢?就是這樣,eat like a horse說明吃的東西很多。

例句:

弟弟來我家的時候我媽媽會煮很多食物,因為他的胃口很大。
