Submitted by Jenny on Tue, 01/12/2016 - 13:02

What does "black sheep" mean?  It means someone who is causing trouble in the group, family, class, and etc.

The examples are:

  • Karen, the black sheep of the family, always causes trouble when we go out.
  • Owen who was always the black sheep in the family, turned out to be the most successful person when he grew up.

Now, can you make some sentences using "black sheep" and the picutre on the die?  ^_^

Over the hump 是指度過最困難時期,已度過一半時間。那為什麼星期三是Over the hump day呢?一般來說,工作天或是上課天是星期一到星期五,星期三剛好是過了一半的時間,因為如此,大家統稱星期三是Over the hump day。大家普遍在這天都會很高興,因為在過兩天就是weekend囉!

This project wasn't easy but we are over the hump now. 這個計畫不容易,但我們度過了困難的階段!
Cheer up, today is over the hump day! 高興點,今天是星期三囉!
