還記得第一次看到這個片語是大約二十歲的事

那個時候只知道意思但不知它的典故

今天來跟大家介紹一下

原來在以前雲有分十類:cloud zerocloud nine

cloud nine 是「積雲」,它像一個軟軟的大型棉花球

令人聯想到天堂的感覺

所以說一個人 (be) on cloud nine 就是很開心、很快樂的意思


我們來造些句:

Hearing that the teacher is going to take them on a field trip, the children were on cloud nine.
(聽見老師要帶他們去校外教學,孩子們都樂壞了。)

She was on cloud nine when Gavin proposed to her.
(當蓋文向她求婚時,她高興極了。)

Diane was on cloud nine when she found out about her promotion.
(當黛安得知升官的消息,她高興極了。)

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?
