核心句型:

If I were in your shoes, I'd apologize to him.

我要是你,就会去跟他道歉。

in one's shoes 字面意思是:“穿某人的鞋子”,由此可以很容易地联想到这个习语要表达的是换位思考,体会对方的难处和苦衷,不要用皮鞋的心态来说人字拖的事。所以这个习语的正确意思是:“站在某人的立场上考虑”。因此,当美国人说"If I were in your shoes, I'd apologize to him."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"IfI were you, I would say sorry to him."、"If I were in the same situation, I would apologize tohim."。

情景对白:

Terry: I criticized my assistant this morning. But maybe I was barking up the wrong tree.

泰瑞:我今天早上批评了助理,但是或许我错怪她了。

Benjamin: Well, If I were in your shoes, I'd apologize to her.

本杰明:嗯,我要是你,就会去跟她道歉。

③The client threatened to terminate our cooperation unless I apologize.

那个客户威胁说除非我道歉,要不然就要终止合作。

④I broke our boss's vase, but I dare not tell him.
