今日小常識

成千上萬的連雀在它們的原生地斯堪的納維亞找不到食吃的情況下飛到了英國。據信這種鳥兒預示著嚴冬將至。

Thousands of waxwings have descended on Great Britain after the failure of the birds' food sources in their native Scandinavian breeding grounds. The birds are thought to be the sign of a harsh winter to come.

今日短語

如果你聽到什麼消息,但是不想透露消息來源,那麼就可以說 'a little bird told me'. 字面意思是一隻小鳥告訴我說,其實就是說某人告訴我。

例句

A little bird told me that it's your birthday today!

We're looking for someone to take on this new project, and a little bird told me that you might be interested in the job?

A little bird told me that you've got a crush on someone in our class…

請注意

在英語裏有一個短語來形容一個喜歡早起床的人或喜歡捷足先登者,那就是 early bird.

Give me a call in the morning: it doesn't matter what time, I'm such an early bird, I'll definitely be awake.
