  英语四级口语对话(16)

  小对话

  A: You always work better than me. You are so clever.

  你的工作做得比我好。你真是聪明呀。

  B: That is because I never leave it down to the wire.

  那是因为我不是总是等到最后一刻才开始做事。

  地道表达

  down to wire

  1. 解词释义

  down to the wire的字面意思是“下来到电线上”,引申为“等到最后一刻才开始,最后关头”。对话中的“leave it down to wire”是指“把某事放到接近最后期限才做,直到最后才做某事”。除此之外,down to the wire还可以表示经济上“濒于破产”“所剩无几”“手头很紧”。

  2. 拓展例句

  It was a neck and neck horse race right down to the wire.

  这次跑马赛从头到尾都胜败难分。

  Play-off games always seem to go down to the wire.

  加时赛看起来双方比分总是咬得很紧。

  We can't go to a restaurant tonight – we're really down to the wire.

  今晚我们不能去饭馆吃饭了——我们几乎身无分文了。
