今天我們來學一個很實用的詞彙:status quo [ˋstetəs kwo] / [ˋstætəs kwo]

大家可能會覺得它長得有點奇怪,不太像是英文

答對了!它的確不是英文,是拉丁文

意思是「現狀」,是個名詞

通常是指政治或社會議題

前面的動詞通常要用 keep 或是 maintain [menˋten] (維持)

我們來造些句:

The status quo is (that) now we’re facing financial difficulty.
(現況是我們正面臨財務困難。)

Both countries agree that it’s best to maintain status quo.
(兩國都同意維持現狀最好。)

No one wants to challenge the status quo.
(沒有人想要挑戰現狀。)
