表情是會說話的,我們可以從他人的臉部表情得知他們現在的情緒,嘴角上揚表示開心,皺眉則可能表示生氣或是焦慮。

Let’s Talk的老師整理了10個語句,用來形容人們的臉部表情,讓我們可以學著表達自己或他人的情緒。

表達「快樂」:

Broad smile on the face.

這表示當一個人開心時,臉上帶有笑容。
例句: When my little sister sees her father come back from work she always has a broad smile on her face.

Beaming from ear to ear.

笑得嘴角都裂到耳朵了,形容非常的高興。
例句: Children were beaming from ear to ear when they saw ice cream.

表達「傷心」:

Why the long face?

為什麼拉長著臉呢?當你看到對方臭著臉,可以試著用這句話來詢問。
例句:You’ve just got a new job, a new house – you should be happy! Why the long face?

表達「憤怒」:

He was wearing a frown.

形容當一個人憤怒或者憂慮時,眉毛低聳、眉間和額頭佈滿皺紋的模樣。
例句:When Elena walked off after the argument with John he was left there wearing a frown on his face.

Grimaced/ Winced

這是用鬼臉來簡短地表達不悅、嘲弄的方式。
例句:She took another drink of his coffee. ‘Awful,’ she said with a grimace.

She gave me a dirty look.

他給了我一眼─這裡指的是類似於「瞪」,用眼神表達不滿的方式。
例句: I got a dirty look from the teacher when I cracked a joke in class.

He was purple with rage (fierce anger)

臉色發紫,是形容極度憤怒,以至於臉都漲成了像茄子一樣的顏色。
例句:She was purple with rage when she saw the teacher scolding her child.

If looks could kill

如果眼神可以殺人……這是一個未完成的條件句,當然是用來形容一個人極度震怒、看起來很可怕,不是真的要殺人。
例句: I’ll never forget the expression on my boss’s face when I turned up late for work fourth day in a row.

表達「驚奇」:

Raising Eyebrows

有時候人們在驚訝的時候會不自覺地抬高眉毛,或者藉此來表達它們的不滿。
例句:She raised her eyebrows when she saw me with Karin at the restaurant, she didn’t expect us to be there.

表達「羞辱」:

Looking down the nose at someone

用鼻子看人,形容某人可能因為對方的社會地位比自己低,或認為對方不重要,而表達出輕視的態度。
例句:Just because he’s rich he looks down his nose at us.
