1分钟英语:As the Crow Flies

English in a Minute: As the Crow Flies

欢迎收看一分钟英语!
Welcome to English in a Minute!
你是否在美式英语里
Have you heard this phrase
听到过这个句子
in American English?
就直线距离看
AS THE CROW FLIES
当人们说这句话的时候,
What do these people mean when they say,
“像乌鸦一样飞”是什么意思呢?让我们听一听下面的对话:
“As the crow flies?” Let’s listen:
我正准备来检查我的导航
I am going to check my GPS,
但是首先,你能告诉我机场
but first, can you tell me how far
离这有多远吗?
the airport is from here?
我觉得大概20英里远吧
I think it’s about 20 miles.
如果你能“像乌鸦一样飞”那个机场并不是很远
The airport isn’t very far, “as the crow flies,”
但是你无法直接到达那里
but you can’t get there directly.
你只能开车沿着环山公路过去
You have to drive around the mountains.
路程大概有40英里吧
It’s about 40 miles by car.
乌鸦是一种体型大,黑羽毛的鸟类
A crow is a big, black bird.
“像乌鸦一样飞”是用来描述两地之间
“As the crow flies” describes the distance
的直线距离,也就是鸟直接飞过去
between two places as a bird
或者是一架飞机的飞行距离
or an airplane, might fly.
这里面并不包括公路上的转弯路线
It does not include the turns in a road
或是
going around mountains or bodies of water
现在你就能在对话里用上这句
Now you can use “as the crow flies”
“像乌鸦一样飞”了!
in a conversation!
这就是今天的“一分钟英语”
And that’s English in a Minute!
