Recently I have been so busy that I haven't had time to write in here.
Being busy is OK, maybe, but the problem is I don't have time to input.
Oh, by the way, I've found another way to make studying English easier, which is ..... to try to make yourself believe that you are an English otaku.
Then, you think,
"Oh, I need to memorize these words. I am English otaku, so this is a lot of fun!! I am so happy to do this! " or
"Again I need to make mock tests for each one of my students.
How lucky I am! I am English otaku; I love to do this."
Anyway, although I haven't had time to watch DVDs or video clips on the Net, finally today, I watched some footage and read articles on a certain case. Here is the word list from the case.
Can you guess which case these are from?
We can learn a lot from real cases.
a person of interest = suspectの婉曲語
post (one’s) bond 保証金を払う
file a defamation lawsuit 名誉棄損で訴える
ｔwist and turns 紆余曲折
snowball 雪だるま式に増える snowball out of control
throw ... under the bus ...を人身御供にする、・・・をうらぎる
One is thrown under the bus when they are made the scapegoat or blamed for something that wasn't their responsibility in the first place. A coverup for your mistake.
“If we get caught, I’ll take all the blame. I’d rather get in trouble myself than throw a friend under the bus.”
“He wants a promotion so bad, he’ll throw anyone under the bus. to get it.”
“I can’t believe you’re going to throw me under the bus after all I’ve done for you.”
Let’s pin the blame on him. 彼に罪を負わせよう。
