轻松日记商务职场篇 第110期:略胜一筹

核心句型:
He is going to be promoted since he is a notch above others.
他即将晋升,因为他较别人略胜一筹。
be a notch above someone直译过来就是:“在别人上面一个等级”,这个短语的正确意思是:“比别人略胜一筹”。因此,当美国人说"He is going to be promoted since he is a notch above others."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"His promotion is due to his better performance."、"He will be promoted because he is better than others at work."。
情景对白:
