2. 用法 - Learn how the slang is used.

When you travel, do you ever worry about your plane landing safely? Do you hope and pray the pilot will land the plane smoothly? Or do you worry about landing other things?

Sure, normally, it takes a pilot to land something. But average people can land things, too. Whenever you get something great, you can say you landed it. Richard Gere is great, but Julia Roberts’ character in Pretty Woman did not want to land him, which is to say did not want to marry him.

Richard Gere might be someone you’d want to land, but maybe you’d like to land something more realistic, like a good job. One of the most common uses of land is to land a job. It’s so common that it’s hardly even slang anymore and it’s appropriate in any context, including business. But slang isn’t all business. So tell us, what would you like to land?

A hot date, maybe?

範例
