成语 (惯用语):理解与造句 Please make a sentence with each idiom OR write down its meaning.

 

“She just announced she’s quitting drinking.”

“She just quit cold turkey?” 突然停止(坏习惯)

“Yes, just like that!”

 

To go cold turkey means to suddenly quit or stop addictive or dangerous behavior such as smoking or drinking alcohol.

This idiom is said to have originated in the early 20th century and suggests that a person who suddenly quits something addictive—such as drugs or alcohol—suffers from side effects that make them look and feel like a cold, uncooked turkey. This includes pale (very white) skin and goosebumps (little small bumps on the skin when we’re cold or sick).

 

====================

 

I can’t understand why I failed math.”

“You know you didn’t study hard, so you’re going to have to face the music (面对现实)and take the class again next semester if you really want to graduate when you do.”

 

In literal terms, facing the music means turning your body to the direction of the music and standing in front of it. But if your friend or your parents tell you to face the music, there’s a much harsher meaning.

It means to “face reality” or to deal with the reality of the situation and accept all the consequences, good or bad (but mostly bad). Perhaps you’ve been avoiding something because you feel unsure or scared of the outcome. Maybe you lied to your teacher and she discovered the truth and now you have to face the music and accept the punishment.
