  home free

  home free虽然不是“家庭免费”,但真实意思也是一个值得开心的短语哦!

  home free表示大功告成、稳操胜券,常常用来搭配be/get,be/get home free。

  例句:

  Are you home free in the game?

  这一场你会轻易取胜吗?

  be/feel at home

  be/feel at home很容易就能明白了,一种意思是“在家”,还可以引申为(对某个地方或人)感觉很自在,感觉宾至如归,或者表示(做某件事)轻松愉快。英文注释是

  =comfortable and relaxed

  【译】舒适轻松

  可以搭配介词with/in,be/feel at home with/in。

  例句:

  Sit down and make yourself at home .

  坐下,别拘束。

  Simon feels very at home on a horse.

  西蒙骑马得心应手。

  close to home

  close to home的确有离家近的意思,但在不同的语境下,表达的意思是不同的。

  当别人跟你吵架的时候,对你说“close to home”,这不是让你回家哦。在这种语境下,它的意思是(话语或讨论的话题)因点中要害而使人局促不安(或尴尬)。英文注释是

  if a remark or topic of discussion is close to home , it is accurate or connected with you in a way that makes you uncomfortable or embarrassed

  【译】如果一句话或一个讨论话题是close to home,那么它是准确的,符合你情况的,这会让你感到不舒服或尴尬。

  例句:

  Her remarks about me were embarrassingly close to home.

  她说我的那些话使我尴尬不已。

  在美剧《破产姐妹》中就有用到这个短语哦!

  see you home

  see you home 很好理解,看字面意思是看着你到家,就表示送你回家。

  例句:

  Will you let me see your home and wish you a Merry Christmas at your door?

  你能让我送你回家,在你家门口说一声祝你圣诞快乐吗?

  be home and dry这个短语有“做成某事(尤指难事)、平安无事”的意思,英文注释是

  to have done sth successfully, especially when it was difficult

  【译】成功地完成某件事,特别是在困难时

  例句:

  I could see the finish line and thought I was home and dry.

  我能看见终点线了,我想我终于成功了。
