I could really use…」字面上的意思是「我真的可以用到…」

但實際上是在婉轉表達「我很需要…」

比如:

I hope the bank will approve my student loan application. I could really use that money.
(希望銀行會批准我的學生貸款。我真的很需要那筆錢。)

It would be great if you could spare the time. God knows we could really use your help.
(如果你能挪出時間來就太好了。天知道我們真的很需要你的幫忙。)

You can give the old rice cooker to Nina. She could really use something like that.
(你可以把舊的電鍋給妮娜。她很需要那種東西。)



 
 

Do you leave your classroom with questions?

Do you stare at your blank homework page?

Are you confused why your paper is covered in red?

Do you have trouble learning new things because you didn't understand the previous lesson?

Have you lost your curiosity, so learning English is boring?
