1.表述:play by ear

释义1:To be able to play a piece of music after just listening to it a few times, without looking at the notes. (凭听觉记忆演奏)

例句:Wow, George is such a talented piano player! The way he can play pieces by ear after hearing them just once is so impressive!

John can play the piano by ear. If I could play by ear, I wouldn't have to take lessons—or practice!

约翰能凭听觉弹奏钢琴。如果我这样,我就不用上课或练习了!

释义2:To make decisions about what action to take in a flexible way, based on the circumstances. (随机应变,见机行事)

他来时我不知道该说什么,到时候随机应变吧。

2.表述:cold feet

释义:Nervousness or anxiety felt before one attempts to do something. (在最后时刻失去勇气,临阵退缩)

用法:它是名词短语,做谓语和动词get搭配,即:get cold feet。

例句:I wasn't nervous until the morning of my wedding, but everyone assured me that it was just cold feet at the last moment.

直到婚礼那天早上我才紧张起来,但每个人都向我保证这只是到最后时刻紧张的现象。
