核心句型:Seeing is believing.

百闻不如一见。

Seeing is believing是一句家喻户晓的谚语,其出处现已无法考证,是代代普通民众长期积累流传下来的思想。这个谚语用一个中国的成语来对照就是:“眼见为实”,意译过来就是:“百闻不如一见”。因此,当美国人说"Seeing is believing."时,他/她要表达的意思就是"What you see is true."、"One eyewitness is better than ten hearsays."、"A picture is worth a thousand words."。

情景对白:Terry: Oh, Ben. I was assigned to see that captious client this afternoon. He is really the most ticklish client I have ever met. Seeing is believing!

泰瑞:噢,本,今天指派我去会见那个吹毛求疵的客户,他真是我见过最难对付的客户了,真是百闻不如一见啊!

Benjamin: Really? Who would have the power to daunt our hero?

本杰明:真的吗?是谁居然能打倒我们的英雄?

搭配句积累:①You'd better come and see it by yourself.

你还是来亲自看一下吧。

②He is a resourceful leader indeed.

他确实是一位足智多谋的领导。

③What you heard might not be true.

你听到的不一定是真的。

④You should not place too much credit in hearsay.

2. a picture really is worth a thousand words 【俚语】百闻不如一见,画能达万意

一个画面值千个言语,我们真的想要家长们和专家,能够看到自闭症早期的症状,他们有阅读能力,不过要等到行为出现才知道,很难了解较细微的症状。

It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. But aside from slides and charts, you can also offer metaphors, similes, and anecdotes to better engage your audience.

有句话说:“一张照片胜如一千个文字描述。”但除了幻灯片跟图表以外,你也可以提供一些隐喻、明喻与小典故来更好地引起听众的兴趣。

3.daunt vt. 使畏缩
