《中高级英语考试词汇捷径》的例证译自Barron’s GRE(Barron’s GRE 第14版)

【点评】If you love good food and fine wine, you can call yourself a GOURMET[谐音:met“美”]But if,in additon to this,you are fastidious in your choices and know just exactly what to order in a restaurant or buy in a store, you can call yourself an EPICURE.EPICURE is a word derived from the name of the Greek philosopher Epicurus, who believed that pleasure was the highest good but who also taught his followers to do all things in moderation in order to prevent the consequences of overindulgence. EPICURE,then,conveys not only the idea of pleasure but the idea of discrimination as well.It is used more loosely today so you can take EPICUREAN delight in almost anything---painting,architecture,books,gardens,even automobiles.

书本上的东东就已经腐烂了,弄点新潮,实用英语吧?

国际贸易的知识在教室里学得太少了,连老师都讲不明白,害得我到国外还要重修。中国的教育,不堪回首。。。
