Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! You know what just happened today. When I was driving
我开车去我工作的地方 差点要撞车了 然后当我下车的时候
to my work place. I almost had a near miss and then the moment I stepped out of my car
又开始下雨了 但是碰巧了 我带了伞 我很幸运
it started raining. But as luck would have it, I had my umbrella, I was lucky. Have you
你也如此幸运过吗 或者你的朋友 家人也如此幸运过吗
ever been lucky like that? Or has any of your friend or family ever been lucky like that?
当然幸运眷顾过你 但是当这一切发生了 你费劲心机想要表达幸运时
Of course you’ve been, but does it happen that you run out of expressions to talk about
最后只说了 我是幸运的 听起来不无聊吗？
being lucky and you just end up saying. I was lucky, which sounds very boring? If that
如果幸运眷顾了你 请继续收看 我是Michelle
has happened with you then please stay tuned with me. I’m Michelle and today we are learning
different expressions to express being lucky.
开始第一个 例句：……这是一件好事 天呐 如果有个人遭遇了车祸
Starting with the first one, It’s a good thing that. God forbid if somebody has an accident
and you go to see them in the hospital and you find out that the victims, the people
who underwent the accident they’re absolutely fine, however their car was damaged. So another
虽然车有损坏 却避免了另一个不幸 如果在车的保护下
disaster has been prevented although the car was damaged, but there was one more disaster
他们还受伤了 那就是一个更大的不幸了 在这种情况下 你可能会说
that they could have got hurt that was prevented. So in such a situation you could always say,
it’s a good thing that they were not hurt. So the first disaster is that there was an
accident. The second disaster could be that they could have got hurt, but they did not,
so we would say, It’s a good thing that the positive statement plus the positive statement.
例句：幸好…… 我告诉过你们 今早当我下车时下雨了
It’s just as well. As I told you this morning, it was raining the moment when I stepped out
of my car, but It’s just as well that I had my umbrella. That’s how you can use this
phrase. This is also always followed by a positive statement, but its proceeded means
before it comes a negative circumstance. And what is a unwanted circumstance in this situation?
下雨了 但是积极的事是我拿伞了 我拿伞了
That it rained, but the positive part is that I had my umbrella, that I had my umbrella.
So these two statements are always used when an unwanted circumstance has been prevented
或者某些不恰当的事并没有发生 因为没有预料到车的损坏 而避免了这两件事的发生
or something wrong did not happen, unwanted damage prevented for these two.
Moving on to the next two. Fortunately or luckily that they were not hurt. So we can
continue this, we can also use this as an expression or it’s a good thing that they
would not hurt. Fortunately or luckily that they were not hurt. This is also used; It
is always followed by a positive circumstance… followed by a positive circumstance. You must
你也必须记住 在你用这个短语时 你是在向别人复述这个故事
also remember that you will use this expression, when you’re retelling the story to somebody.
所以我的朋友发生了车祸 我去医院探望他们 他们的车有所损坏
So my friend had an accident, I visited them in the hospital their car was damaged, but
fortunately or luckily they did not get hurt. We are done with this.
来看第四个 例句：真幸运… 所以让我们想象一下
Moving on to the forth one, As luck would have it. So let’s imagine that one fine day
you’re driving down the city and another of your friend is also driving down the city,
but you don’t know and while you’re driving you run out of gas. However your friend is
there and he’s there to offer you a lift, so in that situation you could say as luck
你可以说我很幸运 迈克让我搭了他的顺风车 这同样也跟在积极的情况后
would have it, Mike was present to offer me a lift. This is also followed by a positive
situation and you will always use it in retelling the story circumstance, retelling the story.
If somebody hears you, how would they reply? If somebody hears the story that you’re telling
them, they would say that was a stroke of luck or if somebody’s saying a story to you
sharing a story with you. How would you reply? You would say that was a stroke of luck or
just imagine, if one of your friend walks in an office for an interview and he just
并且他得到了这份工作 你会怎么说 你会嫉妒吗 不会的
gets the job. How would you reply? Will you be jealous? Don’t be; don’t be envious with
your friend. You could just say that it is a stroke of luck or it was an incredible stroke
The same applies for, it’s lucky. This can also be used in the same situation saying
比如 你得到了这份工作 当你走入办公室时你可以说很幸运
that it’s lucky that you got the job the moment you walked into the office. It’s
lucky that the interviewer was so pleased and so happy with you. So as I was telling
所以当我向你讲述了这个故事时 让我们来发挥想象力 一天
you that about that story, Let’s imagine putting on our imagination cap that one fine day you’re
你开车驾驶 你的朋友也在开车驾驶 并且他让你搭了顺风车
driving and your friend Mike is also driving and he offers you a lift and there you could
say that as luck would have it Mike was driving. Mike was also driving down the city, but let’s
但是如果迈克没有开车 你车里的油也用完了 你会怎么做？
say mike is not driving and you run out of gas. Then what will you do? Then it’s very
or most fortunate that there was a gas station nearby. That’s also used when you are telling
about a story that has happened in the past or an incident that is happened in the past.
It’s very or most fortunate that there was a gas station.
但它却是关闭的 我要晕倒了 功亏一篑 但我晕倒了吗
It was a close. I was just about to fall, it was a near miss. But did I fall? No I did
不 我没有倒下 所以当坏事要发生时 可能是你要倒下了或
not fall, so when something bad is about to happen. If you’re about to fall or there’s
这里即将发生事故 你觉得可能发生 但它并没有发生
about to be an accident. That’s what you call as a close thing. You were about to, but it
这就称之为侥幸逃脱 幸好我踩了刹车 否则就是一场车祸
did not happen. I applied the brakes otherwise it was a near miss, so you can use it on that
所以你可以把它用在这种情况上 坏事即将发生 却没有发生
situation. Where something bad is about to happen. But does not happen.
It must be your lucky day; you have won an all-expenses paid trip to Bahamas. Do you
think that’s true? Sorry it’s not your lucky day then. But if you ever hear that statement
then it is your lucky day. When you get something in a very unexpected form. You can say that,
It’s your lucky day. Probably you know a representative might just call you one day
说 你好 先生 这是你的幸运日 你获得了免费去
and say that, “Hello sir it’s your lucky day. You’ve won an all-expenses paid trip
to Bahamas, Maldives or wherever you want to go, so this is more like it can be used
in the beginning of a sentence before you’re sharing something.
你这个走运的家伙或轻度禁止的表达方式 幸运的混蛋 你这个走运的家伙是更好的表达方式
You lucky thing or slightly prohibited expression Jammy bastard. You lucky thing is a much better
这是不正式的说法 是句俚语 这是句俚语
way of saying this. This is a very informal way and a slang. It is a slang, which I wouldn’t
除非这些人和你非常亲近 否则我不建议你用这句话 他们会对你所说的感到舒服
suggest unless the person is like really close to you and they are comfortable with you saying
that , so you lucky thing can be that if your friend tells you that, Okay I’ve won all
去巴哈马群岛旅行 你会说什么 你这个幸运的家伙
expenses paid trip to Bahamas. What would you tell him? You lucky thing or we can also

say “That was a stroke of luck or It’s lucky that you did. The word here Jammy this
指的是幸运 这个短语在英国非常普通 如果你想用这个句子
means lucky and this is a phrase very common in England and if you want you may use it.
But I suggest this is a better option for you to use.
