今日短語

如果用 out of touch 來形容一個人的話那就說明此人已經與現實生活脫節了,這是一個有負面意思的短語。

例句

You have no idea what music the kids are listening to now – you're totally out of touch!

The report showed that the police are out of touch with people's concerns about safety.

I think most celebrity chefs are just out of touch with ordinary people. I certainly don't have two hours to cook every evening!

請注意

我們也可以用這個短語來形容那些失去聯系的人。在這種情況下沒有負面意思。

I'm afraid I'm going to be out of touch for the next few days. I'm going walking in Scotland.
