Down-to-earth 實在

如果有人說你是 down-to-earth 那麼意思是說你是一個很實在的人。

今日小常識

Chinese archaeologists have unearthed nearly 120 new terracotta warriors at the Qin Shihuang Unesco World Heritage site. These soldiers were built 2000 years ago to guard the first Chinese emperor Qin Shihuang」s tomb. As well as these warriors, statues of entertainers and acrobats have also been excavated.

中國考古學家從聯合國教科文組織遺產地秦始皇陵兵馬俑一號坑內新挖掘出近 120 尊俑像。這些兵馬俑是兩千年前秦始皇的陪葬品。此次還挖掘出了藝人和雜技演員的俑像。

例句

I love the fact you're so down-to-earth and have a logical, straightforward approach to problems.

Mary thought they were going to make millions with the new company, but Sarah was more down-to-earth and knew the profits wouldn't be that high.

My ex-boyfriend was so unrealistic about things. I hope I'll meet someone who is more down-to-earth.

請注意

如果某個人不是 down-to-earth, 不實在,那麼我們可以形容他為 head in the clouds, 意思是和現實脫節或者無法集中注意力。

My son always has his head in the clouds. His teachers say he never concentrates in class!

You must have your head in the clouds if you think they're going to promote you this year.
