오늘 영어표현은Two heads are better than one입니다. This phrase means that when two people work together they are more likely to achieve better results than just one person working on it alone. It can be related to a problem that needs to be solved, different work or a project that needs to be completed, or ideas that need to be gathered. Two heads are better than one은 두 사람 지혜가 한 사람 지혜보다 낫다는 의미죠. 백지장도 맞들면 낫다는 한국 속담과 딱 맞아 떨어지는 표현입니다. 문제 푸는 거나 과제 하는 거나 아이디어 내는 거나 또는 의사 결정하는 거나 모두 마찬가지죠. So it’s much better to work with someone than just by yourself because you can have a better outcome. Let me give you an example. 예를 들어볼까요? “Andy, can you work with Eva on this problem? Two heads are better than one.”이라고 하면 “앤디야, 이 문제는 이바랑 같이 풀어. 둘이 하면 한결 쉬울 거야.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Here is another example. 또 다른 예를 들어보겠습니다. “My brother and I discussed ideas and plans to surprise dad for his birthday because two heads are better than one.”이라고 하면 “오빠랑 함께 아버지 깜짝 생신 파티를 구상했다. 역시 둘이 머리를 맞대고 생각하니까 훨씬 낫다.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what ‘two heads are better than one’ means right? Then let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
