便利なフレーズ第5弾!

Hello!  群馬前橋校です☺️

みなさん!

本日の便利なフレーズ第5弾は…

“Tip of the iceberg” です!

 

Have you ever seen “Titanic”?🚢

The iceberg sunk the ship.❄

Do you know the phrase,

“Tip of the iceberg”?

Tip of the iceberg” means a small part of a larger thing.

For example, “Christmas is just the tip of the iceberg.”🎄

Christmas is just one of many winter holidays.☃️

Or,

“I love cats, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg.

I love dogs and snakes too.

Actually, I love all animals!”🐱🐶🐍

You can use this idiom when you have one example,

but there are many other examples.

“During festival, you can get yakisoba.

But yakisoba is just the tip of the iceberg.

There’s also takoyaki and shaved ice

and lots of other delicious food!”🍝🍧🍡🍢

Can you think of other ideas of something

that’s the tip of the iceberg?

 

いかがですか?直訳すると

氷山の先端ですが、日本語にもある

氷山の一角という意味です!

日本語的には問題とかネガティブなイメージではありますが

英語では意外とな場面で使えます!

皆さんもぜひ使ってみてください!
