今日短語

To look someone in the eye 這個短語的意思就是你雙眼直視對方,讓對方相信你所說的話是完全真實的,即使你有可能並沒有說實話。

例句

John looked me in the eye and told me that he loved me.

I looked at my boss in the eye and told him exactly what I thought.

請注意

如果英語裏碰到 more to something than meets the eye 這個形容方式,意思一般是「某事/某物其實另有文章」。

例句

I don't like Jane's new husband. He seems kind and gentle but I think there's more to him than meets the eye.
