双十一已在昨晚落下帷幕,在全民网购的时代,我们英语培训班的学员同样也扎堆表示要“吃土”了,却不知道要怎么用英语来表达。毕竟一个“poor”词已经根本不足表达穷苦程度了...


1. dirt-poor 极贫困的


例句:Korea used to be dirt poor, and they were being looked down on.  

韩国也曾经贫穷,被人看不起。


2. Max out my credit card 刷爆了我的信用卡


例句:She's maxed out three credit cards. 

他已经刷爆了三张卡了。


3. poor as a church mouse 一贫如洗


例句:With his company doing bankrupt, he is now as poor as a church mouse . 

随着他的公司倒闭破产,他目前已是一贫如洗。


4.be broke 身无分文


例句:I'll be broke in two months.

我会在两个月内破产。


5. live from hand to mouth 勉强糊口,度日维艰


例句:They can onlylive from hand to mouth.

他们的日子是只能糊口。


6.not have a bean  囊中羞涩


例句:Most people in the area are unemployed and not have a bean to spend. 

这地方的很多人都失业待岗,没钱花。


双“11”一过,双“12”还会远吗?这么实用的英语表达还不学起来?到时候就再也不愁怎么像男票,爸妈哭穷啦!
