【雅思口语】雅思口语考试20个常见用语以及用法

  Idiom 习语

  习语(Idiom)是什么?

  Idioms are expressions which have a meaning that is not obvious from individual words.

  习惯用语(idioms),简称习语,惯用语,是种固定的表达法,所以又叫做set phrases, 其真正意思往往不同于其组成部分的每个单词。

  举个栗子,有这么一个习语drive somebody round the bend 表达的意思是让某人生气或者沮丧,但是我们可能无法从字面意思上去get到这个习语的意思。

  习语的正确理解及使用,会让你离native speaker 更近一步,经常看我们文章的小伙伴会发现,小编会经常整理常见雅思话题的习语表达。

  今天的这篇文章我们整理了,在学术场景下常用的20个习语也同样适应于雅思考试当中,希望对大家有所帮助噢。
