更新时间:2014-2-20 8:42:39 来源:本站原创 作者:佚名

Welcome to English in a Minute, where we teach you all about idioms in American English.

Let's say you have worked all day, and you are really tired, like these people:

Voice One: I am exhausted. I have been working at this since 7:00 a.m. this morning.

Voice Two: Me, too. I think it's time we call it a day.

Voice One: I agree. Let's go home.

When you "call it a day" in American English, it means you are ending work, play, or something you are doing that day. Often, it means you have finished your work, and you are going home. You can use this phrase in any situation, and everybody in America will understand you.

And that's English in a Minute.
