SAYINGS-4: meaning and examples

Good morning again.

Today we complete our look at common English sayings.   

Today's English saying is: it's a small world

Meaning: used to express your surprise when you meet someone you know in an unexpected place, or when you are talking to someone and find out that you both know the same person.

Translation to Spanish: el mundo es un pañuelo

Example 1:
When I was in Cairo I saw my best friend from primary school. What a surprise. It's a small world!

Example 2:
After speaking with Janet at the party, we realised that we both had the same music teacher. It's a small world, isn't it.

There are of course many more sayings in English, and we will return to this topic in the future. Thanks to Luis Carlos for the suggestion.

Remember that tomorrow we will send the Essential Weekly Vitamin for Spanish-speaking students of English.

Have a good day.
