For Life

Is that you? It's hard to see you by candlelight.

As you can tell, we're still waiting for the power to come back on. So while we wait, why don't we look at the Friday edition? Here ... we'll turn on a flashlight so you can see better...

Today's Lesson


  • When the power supply is stopped because of an outage, we say "the power goes out" or "the lights go out".
  • the power goes out  または、the lights  go out  は、停電する、という意味です。


  1. I always keep a flashlight and a battery-powered radio handy, just in case the power goes out.
  2. a: Oh no, the power's gone out!
    b: Don't panic. I'll light some candles. And why don't you open some windows? It gets very hot in here without the air conditioner on.
  3. a: Where were you when the lights went out?
    b: At the top of the Ferris wheel in Odaiba with my girlfriend. It was a dream come true!

Hurray!! The lights are back on!

And we'll see you next time on Monday, the 18th. Enjoy the long Obon holiday!!
