Session VIII: Do Your Best(尽最大的努力)

1.Toot One's Own Horn = boast
自吹自擂。

2. Stick to One's Guns = maintain one's position
坚持自己的立场。

范例短文:
In spite of the fact that it was inadvisable to have a controversial figure address the club, the chairman stuck to his guns and insisted that it would make good sense to hear the other side of the question before taking a vote on the issue. He maintained his opinion and position on the matter, even though a number of members tried to make him change his mind.

3. Get the Ball Rolling = initiate action
开始做某事。

范例对话:
A: Look! You've been talking about reparing the roof for weeks now. Don't you think it's about time to get the ball rolling?

A: The time to start doing it is right now! According to the weather report it's supposed to rain tomorrow.


4. Hang On = persevere

努力去做,尽最大的能力。

范例对话:
A: Can you do anything about repairing this TV set?
B: I'm not much of an electrician, but I'll give it my best shot.
A: Many thanks. I'd be most appreciative.
B: OK. I'll try my hardest to fix it, but I'm not promising that I'll succeed.
A: At this point, I'll take all the help I can get.


6. Make Ends Meet = pay one's bills
收入能够支付支出,不至于捉襟见肘。

范例对话:
A: It's almost impossible trying to keep up with the high cost of living.
B: It's true. Things are so expensive nowadays that it's very difficult to make ends meet.
A: You know, even with Lucie's salary, our combined income is hardly enough to pay all the bills.


7. Pull String = exert influence
施展影响力。

范例短文:
Steven had been unsuccessful in getting tickets for the opening game of the season. However, he pulled some strings with the manager of the team and got excellent seats. There's no doubt that he got the tickets only by exerting his influence with a person important enough to help him get what he wanted.

8. Spread Oneself Too Thin = become involved in too many activities
参与太多活动了。

范例短文:
Although Teresa has always been an excellent student, her marks have been going down lately because she is spreading herself too thin. Besides spending a great deal of time in after-school sports, she got a part-time job as a clerk in a department store. It's only natural that her grades would suffer. She is becoming involved in so many activities that she cannot devote the time that it takes to excel in any one of them.
