时间:2016-01-27   栏目:商务英语对话  点击:
核心句型:
Ijust want them to give you a fair shake.
我只希望他们能一视同仁。
give somebody a f air shake 直译过来就是“给某人一个公平的摇晃”,这个短语的真正意思是:“对……一视同仁”。因此当美国人说:"I just want them to give you a fair shake."时,他要表达的意思就是:"I just want them to treat everyone equally."、"I just wish you were treated on equal terms with others."。
情景对白:
Lenna: It is said that the other candidate is the boss's niece. I'm afraid I will fail again.
蕾娜:据说一个求职者是老板的侄女,我担心这次我又要应聘不成了。
Todd: Honey, don't worry. I just want them to give you a fair shake.
托德:亲爱的,别担心。我希望他们能一视同仁。
