看美劇時常聽到 DUI 這個詞

這在美國可以是相當重的罪

DUI 代表的是 driving under the influence

我們知道 influence [ˋɪnflʊəns] 是「影響」

什麼的影響?其實是 the influence of alcohol [ˋælkə͵hɔl] (酒精)

也就是「酒後/醉後駕車」的意思


我們來造些句:

The famous actor was arrested for driving under the influence.
(這位知名演員因酒駕被逮。)

Were you under the influence when you drove me home last night?
(你昨晚開車送我回家時是不是喝了酒?)

I don’t remember how I got home. I was under the influence.
(我不記得我是怎麼到家的。我喝醉了。)



 
 

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?
