核心句型:

We should try to buy more time.

我们要设法拖延时间。

buy more time 字面意思是:“买更多的时间”,这个短语的正确意思是:“争取时间、拖延时间”。因此,当美国人说"We should try to buy more time."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"We should try to gain more time."、"We should try to stall for time."、"We'd better adopt a stonewalling strategy."。

情景对白:

Jane: What's the matter with Mike? He is about to make presentation in ten minutes, but where is he?

简:麦克怎么回事啊,十分钟后就该他发言了,他哪儿去了啊?

Shirley: Call him immediately. And anyway, we should try to buy more time.

雪莉:快打电话给他,无论如何我们要设法拖延时间。

搭配句积累:

①The manager just called that he would arrive in a moment.

经理刚刚打来电话说他一会儿就到。

②There must be something fishy behind it, and we must check it out here.

这其中肯定有什么猫腻儿,我们得在这儿查出真相。

③The deadline is coming but we haven't finished this task.

截止日期就要到了,但是我们的任务还没完成。

④Our computer will be fixed in no time, but I hate to go back work.

我们的电脑马上就要修好了,可我不想回去工作啊。
