  1. keep ... in the loop
    • 我們都是自己人。
    • "Please keep me in the loop." 這句話多半用來結束一場談話,或放在email最末句,專業又親切,意思試「請隨時讓我知道進度。」如果有人說妳在辦公室內是in the loop,意指你接近權利核心。
  2. Gear up.
    • 隨時上緊發條。
    • 原意是開車時「換高速擋」,套用在工作場合則是用來指「準備好、馬上就要行動」。講這句話有一種蓄勢待發的速度趕,像是:"The company's gearing up for the big export drive."公司正為大規模輸出做好準備。
  3. make sense
    • 有道理(口語用詞),也有明白的意思。
    • "It still doesn't make sense to me."我還是不明白。
  4. sync up
    • 我們下的是同一盤棋。
    • sync是synchronize 的縮寫,同步。sync up指一個案子進行之前,團隊成員先凝聚好共識,以便完整銜接。sync up 和on the same page的意思很像,差別在前者側重「行動」、後者意指「狀態」。
  5. recap
    • 重述要點,"recapitulate"的簡寫。
    • 幾乎出現在所有英文會議,有時是開場:"We start with a quick recap of our previous meeting."或結束之際:"Maybe we should recap." recap 不只是summary,更隱含「講重點!」的意味。
