我们今天要学习的短语是:Break the ice.

“To break the ice“是指碰到陌生人时主动打开话匣子,开始攀谈,打破这种不熟悉的局面,让气氛热络起来。由此衍生出来“icebreaker“一词,指彼此不认识的人见面时,用来活跃气氛的游戏或笑话。另外,“icebreaker“也有“破冰船“的意思。

对话:

Bob: Okay, me and Lisa we had our first fight.

Tom: Wow, How did that happened?

Bob: She was complaining about my attitude and I told her maybe she should stop bossing around first. And one thing led to another, she punched into my face.

Tom: So, are you going to break up with her.

Bob: No, I’m thinking how to break the ice in order to get her back.

When meeting potential new clients, it's important to break the ice by starting the conversation.
