[误] It's time to eat your dinner.
[正] It's time to have your dinner.
注：不是所有的“吃”字都能翻译为英语 eat 的，英语中有许多固定搭配，如：take one's medicines(吃药); lead an idle life(吃闲饭);be very popular(吃香);I had some meat for lunch(午餐我吃了些肉)等。eat：“进餐”，在英国不常用，但在美国却常见。
Eat your dinner.
He ate his breakfast quickly, then ran up to his room again.
