♪Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. – すべての卵をひとつの籠に入れるな

今日もここ最近のニュースでよく耳にする決まり文句 “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” をとりあげます。



Hi everyone! Thank you for tuning in to Time for English.

According to recent news from Reuters, Australia has secured to date 135 million vaccine doses for COVID-19 from multiple companies including Novavax, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and CSL. And Prime Minister Scott Morrison said to reporters they’re not putting all their eggs in one basket.

Now, are you familiar with the idiom, not putting all your eggs in one basket?

If you put all your eggs in one basket and drop that basket on the floor, what will happen? The eggs will break. You’ll lose them all instantly.

For example, as an investor, if you buy stocks, you want to diversify your portfolio. Putting all your eggs in one basket is too risky. Likewise, as a student, it’s not a good idea to submit only one college application.

Now, would you like to practice together? Please repeat after me:

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
