Hey guys, a couple weeks ago, I talked about words that are used in America that don’t exactly come from the United States. This week I want to add onto that with not just words, but phrases that are commonly used in the states that don’t really originate from there. I am pretty sure you will find this as surprising and shocking as I did. Ready, here we go!

Echo的小伙伴们早上好呀~ 不久前,我提到了一些在美国很常用,但不是真正源自美国的词汇。这周我想要再介绍一些美国的常用短语,他们也同样不源自美国。但我肯定你一定会跟我一样吃惊!一起开始学习吧!


1. Déjà vu

A French term that means feeling of having seen or experienced something before, but it has been actually seen or experienced for the first time.

 用于表示一种似曾相似的感觉,但却是又是第一次经历。


Ex: Wow, feel like I have seen this situation before…weird, déjà vu.

      哇,我真得觉得我曾经看到过这个场景。真得很似曾相识。

 

 

2. Hors d’oeurve 开胃小吃

This is also a French term that has to do with snacks or appetizers before you eat a full meal.

这是一个和美食或者小吃相关的表达,也来自法语,一般指用在吃正餐之前的”开胃小吃“。

 

Ex: Do you want any hors d’oeurve’s before we orderour main dish?

 你想在吃鱼之前,来点开胃小菜吗?

 


3. Status Quo 现状

This is a Latin expression. It means ‘the existing state of affairs’.Which means “the norm.”

这是一个拉丁表达,意思是“现状”。


The status quo should be maintained.

现状应该被保持。

 

Ex: Hey man, so what’s the status quo around your family?

老铁,你家近况如何?


 

4. RSVP- 请快速回复

An expression that represents the French words “respondez s’il vous plait.”

Which in short means “Please Responds”

 

Ex: We should first R.S.V.P before we go to the restaurant.

在我们去用餐前得快速回复这个消息。

 

 

5. Cum laude-以优等成绩毕业者

It's a Latin term that means you graduated with honors; a grade point average between 3.53-3.74. Which in short means “with honors”

来自拉丁语,意思是以优异成绩毕业。平均绩点在 3.53-3.74。

 

Ex: When I graduated from Yale University, my diploma had cum laude written on it.

当我从耶鲁大学毕业的时候,我的证书上写着“以优异成绩毕业者”。

 

6. Alma Mater 母校;校歌

It's a Latin term that means the school college or university that you have attended. It also means school song.

 

Ex: I love this song! It was my alma mater.

我喜欢这首歌,它是我的校歌。

 

Alright guys,that’s all for today, talk to you next time!

好,今天的内容分享到这里。我们下期再见。
