  情境短语

  1. get acquainted (with…) (和`……)认识,熟悉……

  这个常用的短语暗示双方从不认识到熟识, "get"可换 "become"。若是短语之

  后,要加上被认识的对象,以介系词 "with"连接。

  例:Our boss got acquainted with a couple of real estate agents in the golf

  Club.

  (我们老板在高尔夫俱乐部里结识了几位做房地产的商人。)

  2. on top of things 完全掌握

  字面的意思是将问题克服,高高踩在上面,引申为"控制全局"。

  例:The new manager was always worried he wasn't on top of things.

  (新经理一直担心自己无法掌握全局。)

  3. (a) force to be reckoned with 值得注意的人物

  "(a) force","力量",可以指一个团体、事物或个人; "reckon"在此的意思为"认

  定"。 "a force to be reckoned with"是形容"有成功的条件而值得注意的人物、

  团体"。

  例:The new company will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

  (这家新公司未来值得大家注意。)

  4. Don't I know it. 我完全同意!

  当此句型以句点(.)而非问号结尾时,表示完全同意对的方意见,为口语用法,

  强调的是肯定的含意。意思为"我怎会不知道!?;我当然明白这一点!"。

  例:You say the discount rate is too low? Don't I know it!

  (你说这折扣打得太少?我完全同意!)

  5. in a nutshell 简言之

  "nutshell"原为"坚果壳",又指"极小的容器",故 "in a nutshell" 这个副词短

  语的意思是"简言之"。

  例:Bob told us in a nutshell what happened in the managers' meeting.

  (Bob简略地告诉我们经理们开会的情形。)

  6. growth sector 成长领域

  这个经济学上的名词是指经济成长特别快速的领域, "sector"是"区域;部门"的

  意思。

  例:The leisure and entertainment industry is a growth sector in Taiwan.

  (休闲娱乐业是台湾目前的成长领域。)
