小时候的你一定听过这样一首歌: 你主宰,我崇拜.,只能爱你 ~ you're my super star....... 所以你就记住了 :

star=明星

但听到老外和你说:You're a star. 你可不要理解成:你是大明星!(如果目前你和我一样都还只是普通人......)

那么,如何理解 You're a star 呢?

首先,

剑桥英语词典里对“You re a star” 是这样解释的:

something you say to someone when they have been nice and helpful to you

当你对他人伸出援助之手时对方说的话,其实是在夸你:你真是个大好人。= It's very nice of you. 相当于我们常说的:你真是我的大救星。

例如:

Thanks to you, I don't have to work overtime. You're a star! 幸亏有你, 不然我还得加班, 你简直是我的大救星!

当听到别人和你说: You have stars in your eyes ~ 你以为是说:你眼里有星辰大海吗? 那你想多了 ......

have stars in your eyes =两眼放光 ( 因激动,兴奋,充满希望)

例如: You have stars in your eyes whenever your boyfriend chats with you. 每次和你男朋友聊天,你都是两眼放光 (充满幸福感~)。

第三个误会:

see stars 不是 “看星星” 不会让人想到尔康和紫薇的 看星星看雪看月亮,顿时感觉好浪漫,

see stars 实际上却让人:头晕眼花,眼冒金星。

例如 : The blow on his head made Jack see stars. Jack当头挨了一击,眼睛直冒金星。

如果你想看天上的星星,可以说 look at the stars 或者 watch stars 如果是类似赏月的看,还可以说 appreciate the stars,可不要用 see stars,免得引起误解。

另外,还有两个很有用的关于:star 的表达,如:

① guest star 

guest star 的意思是 “特约演员明星,客串”

这里的 star 可以是动词,意思就是“ appear in a guest role”。 比如: 

Aniston guest stars as a magazine editor and rival to Cox s character. 安妮斯顿客串一个女主编的角色,与考克斯演对手戏。

也可以是名词比如:

He just wants you as a guest star. 他只是请你去客串。

shooting star 

这可能就是你最想知道的:

当宇宙中的固体颗粒接近地球时 由于受到地球引力的摄动而被地球吸引 从而进入地球大气层 并与大气摩擦燃烧所产生的光迹:

“流星”= shooting star (或meteor) 例:

A bright shooting star is an unforgettable sight. 明亮的流星,是番难忘的景象。
