一、flair 作名词,意为“天资;天赋;天分;才华;资质”,后面常接 for,例如:

He has a flair for languages.

他有语言天赋。

Their ideas might now need some of your creative flair.

他们的想法现在可能需要你的创造力。

Alan has a flair for public speaking.

艾伦有演讲的天赋。

二、flare 作名词,意为“旺火,火光,闪光装置,照明弹,喇叭形“等,例如:

There was a sudden flare when she threw the petrol onto the fire.

当她把汽油泼到火上时,突然发出一声闪光。

Flares are used for signalling, illumination, or defensive countermeasures in civilian and military applications.

在民用和军事应用中,照明弹用于信号、照明或防御对抗。

This skirt has a definite flare.

这条裙子有明显的喇叭口。

flare 作动词,意为”烧旺,燃烧,突发,加剧,粗暴地说,呈喇叭形“等,例如:

The candle flared, then flickered and went out.

蜡烛突然烧旺了一下,接着闪了闪便熄灭了。

The dispute threatens to flare into a lawsuit.

这场争端有可能演变成一场诉讼。

These trousers flare slightly at the ankle.

这条裤子脚踝处有点喇叭口。

三、推荐的记忆方法
flare 后面两个字母 re,是汉字热的拼音,或者整个单词好像”发热“的拼音,所以 flare 有”旺火,燃烧“等意思。
