1)Better you than me.
“Better you than me”可不是“你比我更好”啊!难道是更差?啥意思?

Better you than me means I don’t have to experience what you have to,也就是我不必经历你不得不经历的事情(一般这样的事情都很糟心)。

因此,Better you than me的意思相当于幸亏是你而不是我(有点幸灾乐祸的赶脚呢,哈哈)。

英语例句:

① Better you than me,I don’t have to work overtime tonight.

幸亏是你而不是我,我今晚不必加班。

② - My boss is making me write the sales report and it's going to take forever!

- Better you than me,I'm going to a movie this weekend!

- 我老板让我写销售报告,永远都写不完啊!

- 幸亏是你而不是我,我这周末要去看电影啦!

“Better you than me”可不是“你比我更好”啊!难道是更差?
2)No sooner said than done.
这句话相信你老板最喜欢了!为什么?首先no sooner...than...的意思指一...就...,马上动手一点都不含糊。

No sooner said than done means right away or immediately,意思就是立刻,马上,(提出要求后)一说就办,说干就干。

有点像I am on it(马上去做)的意思,我觉得你老板肯定开心到飞起(over the moon)!

英语例句:

① - Adam,I need you to reorganize the store room.

- No sooner said than done,boss.

- 亚当,我需要你去重新整理一下储藏室。

- 马上就去做,老板。

② When he said he wanted to go to the zoo it was no sooner said than done.

当他说他想要去动物园的时候,他说去就去了。

“Better you than me”可不是“你比我更好”啊!难道是更差?
3)Know better than...
Know better than...从字面上看是“比...明白得更多”,其实是指你明白很多道理,头脑很清晰,因而不会去干一些蠢事,常常按know better than to do sth.搭配使用(注意有一定的否定意味在其中)。

这个词组的意思是明白事理(而不至于去做某事),或不至于糊涂到(去做某事)。

英语例句:

① I know better than to judge a book by its cover.

我明白滴很,不会去以貌取人。

② You know better than to talk to strangers!What were you thinking?

你不至于糊涂到去跟陌生人说话啊!你当时在想啥呢?

好了,关于better的词组你都学会了吗?比如better you than me是啥意思捏?
