日常英語對話可能會有啲會同人討論計劃。今日Spencer Sir 就俾五個情進行計劃時遇到嘅情境,如果大家係日常生活上遇到唔洗驚啦!

開始一個新的項目或活動

Where do we begin?
How should we go about doing this? What’s the first step?
What’s first on the agenda?
Let’s organize a task force.
Who will be in charge?
We’re on our way.
We’re off and running.
We’re off to a good start.
We’ve hit the ground running.

We’re headed in the right direction. We’re off on the right foot.
We’ve laid a good foundation. We’ve only just begun.

We’re just getting our feet wet. (idiomatic) getting our feet wet = just getting started

We’ve made a good dent in it. (idiomatic) It’s a start. You’ve got to begin somewhere.
I’d like to lay down a few ground rules.

關於看似困難的

It’s not as easy as it seems.
It’s not as easy as it looks.
It’s harder than it looks.
It’s harder than you think.
Easier said than done.
There’s more to it than meets the eye. It’s surprisingly difficult.

It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. It’s a real challenge.

關於看似不可能

That won’t work. That’ll never hold water.

= That will never be operable. Never happen. (informal)
There’s no way. (informal)
No can do. (informal)

關於看似無用

You’re wasting your time. You’re wasting your energy. You’re wasting your effort. It doesn’t stand a chance.

It doesn’t stand a chance in hell. (mildly vulgar) There’s not a chance in hell. (mildly vulgar) It doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell. (mildly vulgar) When hell freezes over. (mildly vulgar) = Never.

You’re spinning your wheels. (informal) You’re (just) running around in circles.

You’re beating a dead horse. (informal) beating a dead horse = trying to activate or motivate something that is finished

 

It isn’t worth beating your brains out (for). (informal) It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. (cliché) It’s fit for the junkyard. It’s headed for the junk heap. (informal)

當某事不重要時

It doesn’t matter.

It makes no difference.

It makes no nevermind. (folksy) = It doesn’t matter to me.

It don’t make (me) no nevermind. (folksy) It’s six of one, half a dozen of the other.

= It doesn’t matter which one or which way.

It’s not important.
It’s not worthwhile.
It’s not worth your while.
It’s not worth a hill of beans. (idiomatic) It’s not worth mentioning. It’s not worth the trouble.
It’s not worth it.
