英语口语 | 用the big cheese表达“大人物”

the big cheese是一种比喻,指一个组织机构中的最有权势的人,也就是我们常说的大老板。

  • The big cheese is coming to visit our office today - she's the owner of the whole company!
  • I don't want to work as a secretary all my life. One day, I'm going to be the big cheese!

值得注意的是,如果形容两个人截然不同就可以说他们俩就像chalk and cheese,说明两个人一点都不一样。

  • Sarah and Alice are identical twins, but they are like chalk and cheese. Sarah is very shy and quiet and Alice is very loud and outgoing.
