Now, the VOA Special English Program Words and Their Stories.

 

Last week, I told about the number one. Today, I will tell about expressions using other numbers.

 

Some problems are difficult to solve, but there are a lot of number expressions that can help. For example, if we put two and two together, we might come up with the right answer. We know that two heads are better than one. It is always better to work with another person to solve a problem. Sometimes, there are no two ways about it. Some problems have only one solution. You cannot be of two minds over this.

 

But with any luck, we could solve the problem in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. We could have our answers quickly and easily. Sometimes we can kill two birds with one stone. That is we can complete two goals with only one effort or action. But we must remember that two wrongs don’t make a right. If someone does something bad to you, you should not do the same to him.

 

If you are going out with your girlfriend or boyfriend, you do not want another friend to go along on your date, you can just say to your friend “two’s company, three’s a crowd.”

 

When I was a young child in school, I had to learn the three Rs. These important skills are reading, writing and arithmetic. These three words do not all start with the letter R, but they have the sound of R. My teachers used to give three cheers when I did well in math. They gave praise and approval for a job well done.

 

Some of my friends were confused and did not understand their school work. They were at sixes and sevens. In fact, they did not care if they finished high school. They saw little difference between the two choices. Sixth of one, half a dozen the other, that was their position. But they were really happy when they completed their studies and graduated from high school. They were in seventh heaven. They were on cloud nine.

 

Nine times out of ten students who do well in school find good jobs. Some work in an office doing the same things everyday at nine-to-five jobs. You do not have to dress to the nines or wear your best clothes for this kind of work.

 

Last year, one of my friends applied for a better job at her office. I did not think she would get it. I thought she had a hundred to one shot at the job. Other people at her office thought her chances were a million to one. One reason was that she had been caught catching forty winks at the office. She slept at her desk for short periods during the day. But her supervisor appointed her to the new job at the eleventh hour, at the very last minute. I guess her lucky number came up.

Last week, I told about the number one. Today, I will tell about expressions using other numbers.

 

Some problems are difficult to solve, but there are a lot of number expressions that can help. For example, if we put two and two together, we might come up with the right answer. We know that two heads are better than one. It is always better to work with another person to solve a problem. Sometimes, there are no two ways about it. Some problems have only one solution. You cannot be of two minds over this.

 

But with any luck, we could solve the problem in two shakes other lands tail , we can have our answers quickly and easily. Sometimes we can kill two birds with one stone. That is we can complete two goals with only one effort or action. But we must remember that two wrongs don t make a right. If someone does something bad to you, you should not do the same to him.

 

If you are going out with your girlfriend or boyfriend, you do not want another friend to go along on your date, you can just say to your friend two s company, three s a crowd. When I was a young child in school, I had to learn the three ares, these pointing skills are reading, writing and arrismitake. These three words do not all start with the letter are, but they have the sound of are. My teachers used to give three cheers when I did well in math. They gave praise and approval for a job well done.

 

Some of my friends working fused and did not understand their school work. They were at sixes and sevens. In fact, they did not care if they finished high school. They saw little difference between the two choices. Six of one, have a dusion the other, that was their prasen. But they were really happy when they completed their studies and graduated from high school. They were in seven heaven, they were on cloud nine.

 

Nine times after ten, students who do well in school find good jobs. Some work in an office doing the same things everyday at nine-to-five jobs. You do not have to dress to the ninth, or where your best clothes for this kind of work.

Now the VOA Special English Program ‘Words and Their Stories’                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Last week, I told about the number one. Today, I will tell about expressions using other numbers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Some problems are difficult to solve, but there are a lot of number expressions that can help. For example, if we put two and two together (根据事实推理), we might come up with (提出,拿出) the right answer. We know that two heads are better than one (三人行必有我师). It is always better to work with another person to solve a problem.                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Sometimes, there are no two ways about it (必不可免, 别无办法). Some problems have only one solution and you cannot be of two minds over this.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

But with any luck, we could solve the problem in two shakes of lamb's tail. We could have our answers quickly and easily. Sometimes we can kill two birds with one stone (一箭双雕). That is, we can complete two goals with only one effort or action. But we must remember that two wrongs don't make a right. If someone does something bad to you, you should not do the same to him.                                                                                                                           

If you are going out with your girlfriend or boyfriend, you do not want another friend to go along on your date. You can just say to your friend, two's company, three's a crowd (两人成伴三人不和).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

When I was a young child in school, I had to learn the three R's. These important skills are reading, writing and arithmetic. These three words do not all start with the letter R, but they have the sound of R. My teachers used to give three cheers when I did well in math. They gave praise and approval for a job well done.                                                                                                                                                                      

Some of my friends were confused and did not understand their school work. They were at sixes and sevens (乱七八糟, 不和). In fact, they did not care if they finished high school. They saw little difference between the two choices. Sixth of one, half a dozen the other, that was their position.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

But they were really happy when they completed their studies and graduated from high school. They were in seventh heaven (七重天(天之最高处), 极乐世界). They were on cloud nine ([]极乐心境,狂喜状态). Nine times out of ten (十之八九), students who do well in school find good jobs. Some work in an office doing the same things everyday at nine-to-five jobs. You do not have to dress to the nines (完美) or wear your best clothes for this kind of work.                                                                                                              

       Last year, one of my friends applied for a better job at her office. I did not think she would get it. I thought she had a hundred to one (一百与一的比) shot at (力争) the job. Other people at her office thought her chances were a million to one (百万分之一的机会). One reason was that she had been caught catching forty winks (白天小睡, a short nap) at the office. She slept at her desk for short periods during the day. But her supervisor appointed her to the new job at the 11th hour, at the very last minute. I guess her lucky number came up (出现).
