一分钟英语:Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

English in a Minute – Bite Off More Than You Can Chew:贪多嚼不烂

Welcome to English in a Minute.

Biting and chewing are things we do when we eat.

So, what could this mean?

Bite Off More Than You Can Chew.

Jonathan, how is your European vacation?

Very tiring. I don't think visiting ten countries in 10 days was the best idea.

Sounds like you bit off more than you could chew, my friend.

Yeah, I would definitely not recommend it.

If you take a huge bite of food, it's hard to chew.

In life, if you bite off more than you can chew, you try to do too much. It usually doesn't go well.

It's not a pleasant feeling -- while eating or while traveling.

And that's English in a Minute.
