第二, 地道表達

fish in troubled waters

1. 解詞釋義

Fish in troubled waters俚語,相當于“take advantage of a Bad situation to loot”或者是“to involve oneself in a difficult, confused, or dangerous situation, especially with a view to gaining an advantage”,可譯為:趁火打劫,乘人之危,混會摸魚等。

2. 拓展范例

e.g. They were clearly seeking to fish in troubled waters.

顯然他們意圖混水摸魚。

e.g. They are supposed to be in financial difficulties. The company could make more money by selling armaments abroad, but they would be fishing in troubled waters.

他們應該是陷于財政困難之中,公司可以向海外拋售軍用設備來掙大錢,但是他們可能是乘人之危。

1. be good at:擅長于……

e.g. He is good at managing money matters.

他很會理財。

e.g. He' s well-intentioned but not very good at getting things done.

他頗能提方案,但干什么事情都很少堅持到底。

e.g. The teacher is good at firing up the imagination of his pupils.
