one-on-one

one-on-one

Date: Nov 08 2007

引語

1. Quote - Listen to the quote and guess what the slang means.

“It’s an ongoing dialogue about what living means. It’s not like a one-on-one dialogue. It’s more what you feel back from them.”

Musician Bruce Springsteen on the 30-year relationship between him and his fans. (Rolling Stone)

定義

1. 定義 - Study the definition.

one person speaking to or playing against another

2. 用法 - Learn how the slang is used.

If you want to talk to someone alone, you say you’d like to speak him or her one-on-one. Or if a teacher gives you some special help after class you can say you got some one-on-one advice. When you’re talking about talking, one-on-one means a conversation between two people with no one else around.

Bruce Springsteen views his career as a convertsation with his fans. But the conversation is not one-on-one. Springsteen is one, but his fans are many and they do not speak with one voice. Springsteen gets a general feeling from his fans and responds to them based on that. It’s a lot less direct than a one-on-one conversation.

範例

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

“You think you’re good at basketball? Let’s see. Let’s have a game of one on one.”

“I need to talk to you one-on-one about some serious issues.”
