导学:给外国朋友打招呼,你张口就说 "hello" and "how are you?", 呵呵,那你就OUT啦。在美国,流行说 "what's up?". "What's up?" 是不是耳熟能详的一句话,而时常英语学习者误解、错用这句问候语。我们外籍英语学习专家讲告诉你在日常生活中怎样活用 "what's up?".


The phrase "what's up?" is a common English greeting that is often misunderstood or misused by non-native speakers. Let’s take a look at what this phrase is and how it can add to your life.

“怎么了?”是一句非常常见的英语问候语,但却经常遭到非本土人士的误解和乱用.那么今天我们就来谈谈这个短语的意思和其在生活中的用途.
Typically when you greet someone, you want to not only acknowledge them, but also to find out a bit about what’s going on in their life. The problem with standard greetings like "hello" and "how are you?" is that they don't bring out these details. When you ask most people how they are, they respond with a very nondescript "I am fine, thank you." Often times the person doesn't even tell you how they’re really feeling. Regardless, the result is that you're left with a meaningless interaction that didn’t tell you anything.

一般来说,当你与别人寒暄时,你不仅是在向他们打招呼,而且你还想了解一点他们的生活情况.而问题恰恰就在这:例如“你好!”和“你现在怎么样?”类似的地道型问候是不会牵制出这些细节问题的.当你询问别人最近怎么样时,他们大多数会笼统地回答“我很好,谢谢.”在大多数情况下,人们是不会道出他们真正的心理感受的.不管怎样,你得到的永远只是一个没有任何信息含量的无意义的交谈结果.
That’s why the phrase "what's up?" is so popular in America. By asking "what's up?" you address several questions at once. It’s like asking "what have you been doing recently?," "what’s new in your life?," and "how are you?" all at the same time. These are the types of questions that will really allow your friends and acquaintances to share their life with you.

这也正是“怎么了?”这个短语在美国如此风靡的原因.你的一句“怎么了”就包含了多个问题,例如:“你最近过的怎么样?”“你最近有什么新鲜事?”“你怎么样?”事实上,像这种类型的问题是在暗示你的的朋友或熟人要与你分享他们生活中的事.
