歪果仁跟你说“ Where was I ”,可不是问你“我在哪里”!

  以前看美剧时看到里面的人说“Where was I”还以为是要上演,我是谁,我在哪的失忆戏码后来一看字幕才明白,尽管这句话是用“where”提问的,但它所问的和地点完全无关而是一句地道的习惯性问句“我刚刚讲到哪儿了?”

  ☆ Where was I?

  我刚刚讲到哪里了?

  Let's back up,where was I?

  让我们说回去,我刚刚讲到哪里了?

  ☆ Where was I?

  我刚刚讲到哪里了?

  You were going to tell us why you don't like that restaurant.

  你刚刚想告诉我们你为什么不喜欢那家餐厅。

  英语口语还真的是很有趣

  当我们一时语塞、突然失忆的时候

  该怎么表达呢?

  我刚刚说到哪儿了?

  ▲ Where was I?

  ▲ What was I saying?

  ▲ I just had it!

  怎么说来着?

  ☆ It's on the tip of my tongue...

  话就在我嘴边啊!

  tongue是舌头,tip是尖端

  tip of my tongue很生动,表示就要想起來,但吐不出來。

  ☆ How shall I put it?

  我该怎么说呢?

  有时候没想到怎么措辞,可以说这句,或者有时候别人问你问题,没有直接给答案,需要理一下思绪,也可以说这个。

  ☆ What's the word for it...

  这个怎么说来着?旁边如果有懂你的人就会帮你补上。

  ☆ Now, let me see.

  让我想想。

  讲到一半想不出下文可以说Now, let me see.停下來想想,给自己的对话争取一下时间。

  思路被打断,脑袋一片空白

  ☆ Sorry I lost my train of thought.

  train of thought 表示一连串的思考

  ☆ Please don't interrupt my train of thought when I'm writing.

  我写作的时候请不要打断我的思路。

  ☆ Sorry I lost my train of thought.

  我刚刚一下子思路被打断了。

  ☆ Sorry I spaced out there for a moment.

  对不起,我在那里呆了一会儿。

  space out 失去注意力或变得注意力不集中

  ☆ I was supposed to meet her at 9:00, but I spaced out and didn't get there till 10:30.

  我本来9点就要去见她,但是我不知道咋的走了神,10点半才到。

  ☆ I completely spaced out during the lecture.

  我听讲座的时候整个人都飘了。

  ☆ I’m such a scatter brain.

  我真是脑子乱的不行

  我们刚刚在说啥?

  ☆ I completely forgot what I was saying?

  我完全忘记我刚在说啥

  ☆ What on earth was I talking about?

  我到底在说啥??

  ☆ I must be loosing my mind, I forgot what we were talking about.

  我可能是疯了吧,我不记得我们在说啥。
