A few good expressions that I have learned

.1 ...hash things out, talking issues through from start to finish. ......刨根问底,将问题从头到尾说清楚

2 punch line: (故事、戏剧、笑话等中的)妙句,关键语

eg: it’s been 10 minutes and you still no punch line. 十分钟过去了你还是没说出个所以然来

3 In short, cut to the chase and you’ll get more of a reaction。 总之,说话直截了当,你会得到更多回应。


in short 简而言之 总之
in a short while 不久 一会儿 in a short cut 诀窍

4 My job’s in jeopardy and I didn’t even bother to tell you。” 我的工作不保了,我甚至懒得告诉你。”

in jeopardy= in danger

5 “Let’s not dwell on it 我们不要老想它了

women tend to need more reassurance if something is bothering them。

女人如果碰到什么事烦扰她们,往往需要更多安慰


6 If he’s still being affectionate and just feels a bit smothered3, give him some breathing room.

如果他仍爱你,只是觉得有点透不过气,那就给他一些喘息的空间吧。。
