核心句型:

We are in the same boat.

我们处境相同。

be in the same boat 字面上意思是:“大家都在同一条船上”,既然在一条船上,如果船出事大家就都会掉进水里,所以这个短语的引申意思是:“大家的处境相同”。因此,当美国人说"We are in the same boat."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"We are in the same situation."、"We are faced with the same problem."。

情景对白:

Benjamin: By the impact of global recession, our company is ready to take measures to ease the pressure by laying off employees. I feel so worried about my situation.

本杰明:受全球经济不景气影响,公司准备通过裁员来缓解压力,我很担心目前的处境。

Terry: We are in the same boat! The list will be announced tomorrow. I am worried about it, too.

泰瑞:我们处境相同啊!裁员名单明天就公布,我也正担心呢。

搭配句积累:

我正担心明天的面试呢。

②I'm wondering if I should quit and look for another job.

我在想该不该辞职换份工作。

③My boss is not satisfied with my work, and I'm afraid I'll be fired.

④I'm afraid I am not qualified for the assigned work.
