  武汉美联英语:出国迷路了该怎么问

  Donny: Hey琼燕! You went hiking over the weekend, right? How was it?

  QY: The view was breathtaking! 我跟朋友去了一个国家公园,可气的是,我们都是路痴,走错了好几回,1个小时的路足足走了3个小时!I'm such a road idiot.。。

  Donny: Road idiot? (诡异的笑) That's not how we say it! You can say, I have no sense of direction.

  QY: 哦,direction 是方向,所以No sense of direction 就是没有方向感 - 路痴啦!

  Donny: Right! People with no sense of direction can easily get lost. 路痴经常迷路。

  QY: 这说的不就是我么?下礼拜我们要开车去南京,一定又会迷路……哎,Donny, 你原来是不是在南京住过?

  Donny: Yep! I lived in Nanjing for 3 years. I know that city like the back of my hand.

  QY: Like the back of your hand? 了如指掌?

  Donny: Exactly! It basically means that I know Nanjing really well. You can also say: I know every nook and cranny of Nanjing.

  QY: Wait! Every nook and cranny? nook 一定是 n-o-o-k, 那 cranny 要怎么拼呢?

  Donny: Cranny is spelled c-r-a-n-n-y. When people say "every nook and cranny," they're talking about every tiny corner and out-of-the-way place.

  QY: 我明白了, every nook and cranny 就是所有边边角角,犄角旮旯。对了,既然你对南京这么熟,你一定要跟我们去!这样我们就不会走丢了。美联英语》

  Donny: Sure! I'd love to go back! Now let's see what you've learned today!

  QY: 第一:形容路痴可以说:somebody has no sense of direction;

  第二,对一个地方了如直掌,是 know somewhere like the back of one's hand; 也可以说 know every nook and cranny of a place。
