ඇමරිකානු ඉංග්‍රීසි - පාඩම් අංක 7

මෙන්න ටික කාලෙකට පස්සේ ආයෙමත් ඇමරිකානු ඉංග්‍රීසි පාඩම -

bright and early - ගොඩක් උදෑසනින්ම (early in the morning)
  • Our flight to Berlin leaves at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, so we'll have to get up bright and early.
  • We have lots of cookies to bake so we'll have to start bright and early tomorrow.
  • Bob was surprised to see his wife up bright and early in the morning.
crash course - කෙටි සහ කඩිනම් පාඨමාලවක් හෝ උපදෙස් (short and intensive instruction)
  • Yesterday, Joan's son sat down with her for a couple of hours and gave her a crash course on using the Internet.
  • Rachel had a date on Friday night with an auto mechanic. He gave her a crash course on changing her oil. 
  • If you need to learn something quickly, you'd better take a crash course.
Fat chance! - කිසිසේත්ම සිදුවිය නොහැකි යන අරුත (definitely not) never in a million years; no way! යන්නෙන් පවා ලබා දෙන්නේ මේ අරුතමයි.
  • The boys at school are always laughing at Dana. Will she be invited to the school dance? Fat chance!
  • You want to borrow my new car and drive it across the country? Fat chance!
(to) give it a shot - යමක් කරන්නට උත්සහ දැරිම ( to try something)
I've never tried to make wine in my bathtub before, but perhaps I'll give it a shot.
You can't open that jar? Let me give it a shot.

happy camper - සතුටින් සිටින්නා කියන අරුත තමයි මෙයින් දෙන්නේ. ඒත් මෙය යොදා ගන්නේ යමෙකු එසේ නොසිටින බව දැක්වීමටයි (a happy person; a satisfied participant)
  • When Linda's passport was stolen in Florence, she was not a happy camper.
  • Steve is taking five difficult courses this semester. He's not a happy camper!
  • Jennifer's boss is lousy and her salary is low. She's not a happy camper.
(to have) mixed feelings - යමක් පිළිබදව සතුටක් එ‍සේත් නැත්නම් ධනාත්මක අදහසක්දළ තවත් අයුරකින් අසතුටක් නැතහොත් ඍනාත්මක ආකල්පයක්ද සිතේ රදවා ගැනීමට මෙය යොදා ගනී ( to feel positive about one aspect of something and negative about another)
  • When our houseguests decided to stay for another week, I had mixed feelings. On the one hand, I enjoyed hanging out with them.On the other hand, I was tired of cooking for them.
  • I have mixed feelings about the president of our company. He's good with the clients, but he's nasty to his employees.
  • Bob wasn't sure he wanted to work for his wife. He had mixed feelings.
needless to say - අමුතුවෙන් කියන්න ඕන නැහැනේ (obviously)
  • You've got a test tomorrow morning. Needless to say, you can't stay out late tonight.
  • Needless to say, you shouldn't have waited until Christmas Eve to do your shopping. The stores are going to be very crowded!
(to) not have a clue - කිසිම දෙයක් දන්නේ නැහැ (to know nothing about)
  • Bob talks about working at McDonald's, but the truth is he doesn't have a clue about making hamburgers.
  • "Do you know how to fix a broken printer?" - "No, I don't have a clue!"
  • Bob had never baked anything before in his life. He didn't even have a clue about how to turn the oven on.
(to) not sleep a wink - පොඩ්ඩක් වත් නිදා ගත්තේ නැහැ/මුළු රැය පුරාව නිදිවර්ජිතව (to be awake all night)
  • Ted was so nervous about his chemistry test that he didn't sleep a wink the night before.
  • It's not surprising that Jill didn't sleep a wink last night. She drank a large cup of coffee before going to bed.
  • Nicole was up all night finishing her Spanish homework.- She didn't sleep a wink.
(to) work like a dog - ඉතාම මහන්සි වී යමක් වෙනුවෙන් වැඩ කිරීම (to work very hard)
  • Larry became an investment banker after college, and now he works like a dog.
  • Al worked like a dog on his term paper and got an "A+" on it.
