Next Question


Thanks a lot for the lesson, but I have a question. How is the situation where both sides lose named: lose-lose situation or zero-zero situation?


    well done


      To tell the truth, all these were completely new business expressions to me -except one- piece of cake. In fact, I use it frequently.

      Great lesson as usuall Rebecca.



    Zarni Aung

      I think if Lovers broke up with each other, they would have faced the situation that you said. :)

      Zarni Aung

    Cambridge Dictionary says

    A lose-lose situation or result is one that is bad for everyone who is involved:
    He said that going ahead with the strike would be a lose-lose situation for all concerned.


    Dear Roman, the situation when all sides are losing is usually described as a lose-lose situation. Something like a divorce in a family (all the members are suffering – husband, wife, children and parents) or budget cutting in a company because of sales crisis (owners and workers receive less money).


    Yes, Roman06. You could also say “a lose-lose situation”, to describe that scenario. I wish you all the best!

Are common expressions that, sometimes can be written with other words, but having the same sense
For exemplo : ‘ A piece of cake’ in Brazil we say ‘papaya with sugar” when as to do something is easy, one task easy

Thanks ma’am


    or in Persian laungage,same the drinking of water

    david Farzi

the lesson is superb really enjoyed it. more lesson


Dear Rebecca! Thanks for your lesson!
I know it’s besides the point of this lesson but I ask you to explain it. In the first paragraph of your lesson you used an expression “kind of has”. I encounter it fhor the second time and cannot find explanation and meaning of it. Thanks in advance.


Good video – as usual. Thank you!
It’s interesting to learn some opposite expressions to those you already know and which are very often used.


A great lesson!


I think in an any battle only one side will win. so there is no place where both sides lost


    Hmmm…There is another English expression, a “Pyrrhic victory”, about a fight that neither side really wins. It comes from a story about a Greek king, Pyrrhus, who won a battle, but all his best soldiers were killed and there was no one to replace them. So you could say that a Pyrrhic victory is one situation where there are no winners.

Just out of curiosity, the expression “a zero-sum game” comes from the (academic field of) game theory: it’s a game where the sum of gains (represented by positive numbers) and losses (represented by negative numbers) for all players, in each possible outcome of the game, equals to zero (additionally, a game where that sum is a constant can also be seen as zero-sum game).


its good learning


Hi, I’m just trying to start but all the videos I open were changed to a different web site or somewhere else maybe they are only available with subscription in Youtube. The company I work with does not allow to open Youtube. Is there any other way to access the classes? Thanks. Nicolas
