child's play

 

有人直接以为是“儿戏”,看起来好像有那么一点意思,其实不然,child's play真正的意思是“轻而易举的事”,说的通俗一点可以是“小儿科”

Driving a car is not child's play.

开车并非是一件轻而易举的事。

在这里小编再给大家辨析一下kid和child

"Kid"is slang for a young child.

Kid是对小孩子的称呼的俚语

"Child" has a few different meanings:

1. Legally, a child is a minor, someone who is under 18.

从法律上讲,child是指未满18岁的未成年人。

2. Biologically, a child is a young human, before puberty (which usually hits between 10 and 16 years old).

从生物学上讲,child是青春期前的年轻人(青春期通常在10岁到16岁之间)。

3. Socially, a child is any son or daughter of any age. Even a grandparent is someone's child!

在社交方面,child是指儿子或女儿,不论他/她多大。甚至祖父母也是某人的child。

So while some people separate humans into children and adults, I like to remember that we all used to be children, and we all are still children to our parents. And it's always fun to act like a kid.

因此,尽管有些人把人类分为儿童和成人。但我想让大家记着,我们都曾是孩子,对我们的父母来说,我们仍然是孩子。表现得像个孩子总是很有趣的。

Because "kid" is informal, you usually don't want to use it for any academic or professional writing.

因为kid是非正式的,你通常不会在任何学术或专业领域内使用kid。

The word "kid" is also used to refer to a baby goat.

kid这个词也用来指小山羊。
