  • Hello! My name is Emma, and today we are going to learn some "work" expression. Okay? So these expression don't necessarily actually have to do with work, but they're expressions that


  • use the word "work". So today, I will teach you ten new expressions. Let's get started.

    用單字“work" 組成。所以今天我會教你10個新片語。我們現在就開始吧!

  • Expression No. 1: "overworked". What does it mean to be "overworked"? If you are "overworked",

    片語1:"overworked" "overworked"是什麼意思? 如果你“overworked"

  • it means you have too much work, okay? So this is not a happy situation. So you might

    表示你有做不完的工作 這不是你樂見的情況 你可能

  • tell your boss, "Listen. I feel a little overworked." Maybe you complain to your friends on the


  • phone, "Work is so hard. I'm overworked. There's no staff. It's all me. I work, work, work.


  • I'm overworked." So "over" usually means, like, "more". So that's a hint, "overworked".

    我工作過度。所以“over"通常表示“more" 所以這是“overworked"的一個提示

  • One thing about all of these expressions: Pay careful attention to the preposition because


  • with work expressions, a change in preposition can completely change the meaning of the expression.


  • So that is "overworked". I hope none of you are overworked, and I hope none of you are


  • "underpaid", meaning you're not getting enough money.


  • Our next expression is "dirty work". I really like this expression. So what is "dirty work"?

    下一個片語:"dirty work" 我很喜歡這個片語 所以“dirty work"是什麼意思?

  • Well, "dirty" is the opposite of "clean", okay? So "dirty" is "no clean" -- "not clean".

    首先 “dirty"的反義字是“clean"所以"dirty" 是"no clean"--"not clean"

  • "Dirty work" is work that is not fun work. No one wants to do dirty work, okay? So it's

    "Dirty work" 是一些自討沒趣的工作 沒有人會喜歡做苦差事

  • unpleasant -- see the sad face? -- work. What is an example of dirty work? Well, maybe you

    它令人不愉快--看到哭臉了嗎? 所以有什麼苦差事的例子?假設你

  • work at a company, and maybe there's a co-worker, or maybe you have some staff, and someone

    在一間公司上班 有一位同事或員工,然後某人

  • wants you to "fire" that staff, meaning someone is not happy with this person's work, so they


  • want this person to be "fired". Instead of them saying "You can't work here now", they

    希望這人被“fired" 他們並不直接像他說"你被解雇了,而是請你

  • will tell you to fire this person. So it's a job you don't want to do, essentially.


  • There are many examples of "dirty work", but what it really is, is a job no one wants to do.

    有很多dirty work"的例子,它真正的意思是指沒有人想做的工作

  • Clean toilets might be dirty work. Maybe your friend is having a party, and there're a lot


  • of people invited, and the party has to be cancelled. Maybe the dirty work is you have


  • to tell everyone the party is cancelled. So it's work you don't want to do.


  • Example No. 3: "get worked up". What does it mean to "get worked up"? It means you get

    第3個片語:“get worked up" "get worked up"是什麼意思?表示

  • very, very angry or very upset. It means you get very emotional. When you get worked up,

    當你非常非常生氣難過或非常情緒化時 。當你快抓狂時

  • you get very angry or emotional. So "get worked up". An example of that: Maybe it's the night

    你變得非常生氣或激動 舉個“get worked up"的例子來說:可能是

  • before your big test, and you haven't studied, and you're very stressed out, and you start


  • to cry, and you say, "I'm not going to pass this test. My life is ruined. I'll never get


  • into a university. Everything's horrible." That's you getting worked up, okay? Because


  • chances are you will do all right on your test, and you will get into university, and


  • even if you don't, you can try again at a later time.


  • No. 4: "work out". So "work out" has two meanings. The first meaning is "exercise", okay? Do

    第4個片語:“work out" "work out" 有兩個意思 第一表示“運動”

  • any of you guys work out? I think working out is fun. So it just means, you know, if

    有人運動了嗎?我覺得運動很好玩 將像你所知道的

  • you like to run, if you like to lift weights. Maybe you like to play basketball -- these

    如果你喜歡跑步 舉重或打籃球

  • are "workouts"; it's exercise to become healthy. The second meaning of "work out" is when you

    這些都是“workouts" 運動讓你變得更健康。 “work out"的第二個意思是當你

  • "work something out", you find a solution to that. So for example, maybe you have a

    "work something out" 你找到解決問題的方法。例如:你在解

  • math problem, maybe two times two, two times two: You have to "work it out". That one is

    數學題目,2x2是多少?你必須把它算出來。 這或許

  • a little easy, but maybe you have calculus. One more example of "work out" is the expression,

    太簡單了!可能你在解微積分。另一個“work out"的例子是這個片語:

  • "It will all work out", meaning "everything in the end will be good". So if maybe you

    "It will all work out",意思是“事情最終會有好結果的”。你可能

  • have a friend -- you have a big fight; it will all "work out", meaning "in the end,

    有個好朋友--你們大吵一架;最後將會"work out", 表示“最後

  • everything will be good", so "find a solution". No. 5: "work on" -- "work on something". "I

    你們會和好”,會“找到解決方法” 第五個片語:"work on" -- "著手進行某事" “我

  • worked on a project all night." "I worked on these English videos." "I worked on an

    整晚在準備我的企劃” “我在練習這英文影片” “我在創造一件

  • art piece." "I worked on a painting." "Work on" just means you do work, usually on a project.

    藝術品” “我在創作這幅畫作” "Work on"表示你花心思在一件事物上,通常是一個專案

  • You can work on your basketball skills. You can get better at playing basketball. You


  • can work on your painting skills, your English skills -- every day I work on my Chinese.


  • I hope every day you work on your English. So that's an example of "work on". But it's

    我也希望你們每天都花些時間在英文上,以上就是"work on"的例子。它

  • usually something that isn't yet finished -- you're still on the journey to completing.


  • You haven't finished yet. Usually, "work on" refers to: you're doing a project, but you

    事情還沒結束。通常,"work on"影射:你正在做一個專案,但你

  • haven't finished a project. Expression No. 6: "Work up an appetite". What

    尚未完成這專案。第6個片語:"Work up an appetite" 這是

  • does this mean? "Appetite" has to do with food, okay? When you "work up oppetite",

    什麼意思?“胃口"和食物有關,對吧?當你"work up on appetite",

  • it means you've been maybe exercising. Maybe you've been at work all day. Maybe you've


  • been in the office at the computer, but you're getting more and more hungry. Your stomach


  • is rumbling. You want food. You have worked up an appetite. So it just means you're very

    轆轆 你只想吃東西 你變得很有胃口 所以表示你非常

  • hungry. Okay, so now we are at expression number 7:


  • "Workaholic" this has one two three four parts, four syllables "wor" "ka" "hol"

    "Workaholic" 有4個部分,4個音節“wor" "ka" "hol"

  • "ic". What's a "workaholic"? A "workaholic" is a person. You use it as a noun: "He is

    "ic" 什麼是 "workaholic"? "workaholic" 是一種人,當名詞使用:“He is

  • a workaholic." She is a workaholic." What does it mean? It's someone who works all the

    a workaholic." She is a workaholic." 它是什麼意思?它形容一種人一整天都在工作

  • time. They have a problem because they work so much. Maybe they never see their family


  • because they're always working. So it's -- it's a problem. We use "aholic" whenever we're


  • talking about doing something too much. So if you drink too much alcohol, you would be


  • an "alcoholic". If you drink every day at breakfast, and it's very unhealthy, it's an


  • "alcoholic". If you shop all the time, and you spend all your money shopping -- every

    “酒鬼” 如果你常常在逛街,把所有錢花在購物上--每天

  • day you go shopping -- and you can't pay your bills, you're a "shopaholic", "shopaholic".


  • So you will see "aholic", and it just means "to do something too much and it's not healthy".

    如果你看到"aholic", 表示你過度做一件事情,通常是不健康的事

  • So "workaholic" is not a good thing. It means you work too much, and you're missing out


  • on time with your family and your friends. So I hope none of you are workaholics.


  • No. 8: "work it".This expression is a fun expression. You might see it on TV sometimes,

    第8個片語"work it" 這是個很有趣的片語,你可能在電視上聽過

    或許他們在整裝,你可能大聲對他說 “Work it.”你為他們

  • giving them encouragement. You're telling them, "Yeah, you're doing something confident."


  • So when you see someone do something confidently, and you want to encourage them, you can say,


  • "Work it." I had a friend who always said this. Anytime she saw me walking down the

    "Work it." 我有個朋友總是對我說這詞。每到她看我走在

  • street, she would yell, "Work it! Work it!" Which means, you know, "walk confidently."

    街上時,她會大喊"Work it! Work it!" 意思是”"walk confidently."

  • So it's an encouraging expression. No. 9: "to work someone in". What does it

    所以這是鼓勵人的片語。第九:"to work someone in" "work someone in"是

  • mean to "work someone in"? It means -- in this case, we're talking about maybe you're


  • at the doctor's or the dentist, and you're talking to the receptionist, and you want


  • to get an appointment. You need to see the doctor. The receptionist might say, "Today


  • we're busy, but I can work you in." This means, "even though it's busy, you can get an appointment".

    我們很忙,但我們會幫你預留“」 這表示:「雖醫生很忙碌,你仍可以預約看病。」

  • have a new job, but you live in France, and the job is in Dubai. How are you going to


  • work in Dubai? Maybe your boss will say, "It's okay, we can work something out. We will make
