今日小常識

Inspired by the original Holi Festival in India, Holi One Festivals have travelled around the world to South Africa, Germany, the US and Singapore. Thousands of people, dressed in white, come together to share in music, dance and celebrate a new season.

受印度侯麗節Holi Festival 的啟發,現在世界上很多國家每年都會慶祝 Holi One Festival。在南非、德國、美國和新加坡,每年一度的 Holi One Festival 都會吸引成千上萬身著白色衣衫的民眾聚集到一起分享音樂、載歌載舞、共同慶祝新一季的到來。

今日短語

短語 have a big mouth 用來形容一個說話聲大、愛說閒話而且無法保守秘密的人。

例句

Jimmy has a big mouth. Yesterday I told him that I am leaving the company and today everybody knows about it.

I could never be a spy. I have a big mouth!

請注意

短語 all mouth 常會用在 'be all mouth and no trousers' 這個表達中,意思是只說不做。

I bet you haven't asked your boss about that pay rise you talk so much about; you are all mouth and no trousers!
