Put on the spot 使尷尬

如果說某人 puts you on the spot 那就是說他們提出的問題讓你感到很為難,很尷尬。

今日小常識

Venus was named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. It is the second-closest planet to the Sun and its orbit lasts 225 days. Apart from the Moon, it is the brightest natural object visible at night from the Earth.

金星在英語中是維納斯 VENUS, 這也是古羅馬神話中的愛神。金星是第二個距太陽最近的行星,環繞一周需要 225 天。除了月亮之外,金星是從地球可以看到的最亮的星體了。

例句

I can't believe he asked me how old I was in front of the whole office. He really put me on the spot.

She put me on the spot and asked me to say something in French.

請注意

另一個短語 have a soft spot for someone 意思是特別喜歡某人。

No wonder Jane got a promotion. The boss has always had a soft spot for her
