Bill never did his homework and the teacher flunked him.

Bill never did his homework and the teacher flunked him.

The word underlined is a slang expression meaning ‘to fail’, or ‘not be given a passing grade’ for an assignment or class in school.

[比爾從不做家課,老師把他給死當了。]

在美語口語中 flunk 作「不及物動詞」用,指學生考試失敗、不及格;作「及物動詞」用時,則指老師給學生不及格分數。
