A big fish 一條大魚

當我們形容某人是 a big fish 一條大魚時,這就是說這個人是一個重要人物。


I've got a very important meeting with Mr Johnston later – he's the big fish in the company!

Sepp Blatter is the President of FIFA and a big fish in international football.

If you want the organisation to invest in your project, you really need to talk to a big fish, not me.


當某人是 a big fish in a small pond 小池塘裏的一條大魚,一個意思是小池塘裏的一大魚;另一個意思是說這個人是大材小用。

She thinks she」s really important, but she」s just a big fish in a small pond.
