▶︎６月は Tyler Brule さんとのインタビュー。

▶︎Yes, let’s learn how to communicate effectively
▶︎So let’s get started!
Words and Phrases
● unprecedented ▶︎未曾有の
– Without precedent, without a previous example.
Never done before, never know before.
– Mr. Shibata mentioned unprecedented challenges with
the world economy. So these challenges are new to us,
and we don’t have a similar situation to compare.
● challenge ▶︎試練
– A test, something to overcome, a difficult job.
This is a more motivational way of talking about a problem
or obstacle that needs to be overcome.
– If we view problems as challenges, almost like a game,
it can make them easier to deal with.
● cope with 〜 ▶︎〜に対処する
– To deal with, to handle a situation, attempts to overcome
something. To [ ? ], to get by, to manage.
– Coping with something often means that it’s difficult.
● collapse ▶︎崩壊
– Fall, crumble, to fall down or give way.
If a building collapses, it crumbles and falls to the ground
often times completely.
– We can use this image when we think of a business collapsing.
Many businesses have faced collapse in the pandemic with
some severely damaged, and others completely destroyed.
● get 〜 across ▶︎〜を伝える
– To convey a point or message. To explain something properly.
To make people understand what you’re tryin to say.
– We often use this as “get one’s point across.”
As in “You shouldn’t yell at employees. There must be a better
way to get your point across.”
● cut through ▶︎通り抜ける
– To break through, to emerge, to get passed something quickly.
If you can cut through an obstacle, you can increase progress
and get close to success.
– For example, we cut through the hardest part of the project.
So now we just have to finish strong.
● momentum ▶︎勢い
– Movement, going in the right direction, movement toward
progress or success.
– Momentum is often used in terms of physics or machines.
And it’s the force that keeps an object moving, such as a car.
So if a car has momentum, it moves by itself without a driver
having to use the accelerator.
