Down-to-earth 实在

如果有人说你是 down-to-earth 那么意思是说你是一个很实在的人。

今日小常识

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.

中国考古学家从联合国教科文组织遗产地秦始皇陵兵马俑一号坑内新挖掘出近 120 尊俑像。这些兵马俑是两千年前秦始皇的陪葬品。此次还挖掘出了艺人和杂技演员的俑像。

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.

请注意

如果某个人不是 down-to-earth, 不实在,那么我们可以形容他为 head in the clouds, 意思是和现实脱节或者无法集中注意力。

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.
