   雅思口语练习中怎样将英语谚语说的地道?
  1.THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
  Meaning:“The elephant in the room” is an idiom for a problem or controversial issue that is too big to ignore, but that everyone tries to avoid talking about because it is embarrassing or will cause conflict.
  用来形容一个明明存在的问题,却被人刻意的回避及无视的情形。它的字面意思描述了,一个庞大的大象在狭小的房间里面,是非常明显的事实,因此,它也暗含了这个问题应该被拿来出来公开讨论的意思。
  2.ONE-TRICK PONY
  Meaning:A pony is a small horse, which is often used for shows, competitions, and exhibitions. People teach ponies “tricks” to perform at the shows. If a pony only knows one trick, then it doesn’t have a great variety of abilities. So describing someone as a “one-trick pony” means the person has only one ability or good quality that he/she is known for, and doesn’t have any other abilities.
  只会一招的小马,就是形容一个人只有一个能力或者一个好的品质被大家知道,其实也没别的真没事,用中文的成语解释就是“黔驴技穷”。
  3.THE LION’S SHARE
  Meaning:“The lion’s share” of something is the biggest part or portion.
  字面意思是狮子的那一份儿,引申为最大最多的那一份儿,最大的份额。
  4.HOLD YOUR HORSES!
  Meaning:This idiomatic expression means “Wait a minute! Don’t be in such a hurry.”
  等我一会儿,别着急。
  5.PIG-HEADED
  Meaning:Describing someone as “pig-headed” means that person is stupid and stubborn (close-minded and inflexible).
  就是形容一个人很蠢,很顽固。
  6.WEASEL OUT OF SOMETHING
  Meaning:Weasels have a reputation for being sneaky. If a person “weasels out of” some responsibility, it means they abandon their responsibility or commitment in a way that is sneaky or cowardly.
  形容一个人会推诿、退出(做某事),逃避(责任)。
  7.THE CAT’S MEOW
  Meaning:If you think something is “the cat’s meow,” it means you think it is excellent, wonderful, really great.
  形容一个人或者一件事情很棒、很杰出。
  8.THAT REALLY GETS MY GOAT.
  Meaning:If something “gets your goat,” it means it annoys you.
  get your goat 就是惹你生气!
