COOL-2: meaning and examples
Today we begin our review of expressions with the adjective cool. Yesterday we saw that cool can refer to temperature (fairly cold; not hot or warm) or how we feel (calm, not excited, angry or emotional). The expressions we will look at this week use this second meaning.
Today's 1st expression is: to keep your cool (informal)
Meaning: To remain calm in a difficult situation.
Paco...during the negotiation, please try to keep your cool. If they see that you are angry, it will give them a psychological advantage.
Today's 2nd expression is: to lose your cool (informal)
Meaning: To become angry or excited.
Paco lost his cool during the meeting and the negotiations ended with no agreement. What a disaster!
