  例如:

  1、He's still new in his job, please give him some time to find his feet.

  2、How long did you take to find your feet in your new place of work?

  你花了多长时间才适应新工作?

  3、I'm new to this city, so I'm still finding my feet.

  6、You may feel lonely at first, but slowly you'll find your feet in the new setting.

  一开始你可能会感到孤独,但慢慢地你将适应新的环境。

  7、After a lot of struggle and hard work, he finally found his feet as an entrepreneur.

  经过一番奋斗和努力,他终于站稳脚跟,成为一名企业家。

  解析:lots of和 a lot of意思一样,意为“许多”,表示量很大,但是没必要指明量的多少,多用在比较不正式的谈话或是写作中(正式的用many或 much),后面跟可数名词和不可数名词,谓语的单复数根据后面接的名词来变化。
