我和Jim 不一样,不是一个到处留名的人。

B: No, he isn’t. He just likes to rub elbows with people who are interested in art.

不,他也不是。他只是想和有艺术兴趣的人交往。

A: I do not want to argue with you. When I talked to him, I would think he has dinner with our President once a week.

我不想和好你争论。当我和他谈话时,他给我一种印象——他是每周和我们总经理共进晚餐的人。

B: How come you have such an impression of him? I think he is all right.

你怎么会对他有这种印象呢?我认为他倒不错。

第二,地道表达

1. 表达法:

rub elbows with :与……交往

2. 拓展范例

e.g. He likes to rub elbows with important people. It gives him a feeling that he's important too.

他喜欢与要人交往,这使他感觉到自己也显要起来。

e.g. If you travel across America by bus, you rub elbows with all sorts of people. You'll meet older retired people, young students and others who ride the bus because it's cheaper than flying.

要是你乘长途汽车到美国各地旅行的话,你就会接触到各种人。你会碰到退了休的老年人、年轻的学生等。他们坐长途汽车是因为这比乘飞机便宜。
