BBC今日短语:如何用英语表达“好坏参半的过去”?

 

  今日短语

  搭配 “a chequered past” 或 “a chequered history” 字面上的意思是 “斑斑驳驳的过去”,但其实际意思是比喻一个人过去的经历好坏参半。单词 “chequered” 原本指 “格子图案的”,在这里它形容人跌宕起伏的过去。

  所以,经典笑话,搭配 “a chequered past” 多用来告诫人们某人曾作过不光鲜的事情,所以不能轻易信任。

  例句

  I’m not sure that Tim is suitable for this job – it seems like he can be trusted, but he has a chequered past.

  我不确定蒂姆是否适合这份工作,他似乎可以让人信赖,但他的过去可是好坏参半。

  The famous singer is working hard for many good causes – the environment, poor children, and refugees. Maybe he hopes everyone will forget about his chequered past.

  这位著名歌手在为包括环境、贫困儿童和难民等许多公益事业而努力工作。也许他这么做是为了让人们忘掉他好坏参半的过去吧。

  As a result of his chequered past, he has found it difficult to persuade the bank to lend him the money he needs to set up his business.

  由于他过去的经有好有坏,所以他发现自己很难说服银行给他贷款创业。
