Today's Lesson
BREAK (= time off)   休憩、休暇


  • A break is a short period of time when you stop what you're doing in order to relax, eat, etc.

    A break is also a longer period of time away from work or school when you relax and enjoy yourself.
  • break とは、自分のしていることをやめて、くつろいだり、何かを食べたりする短い時間、つまり、休憩のことです。

    また break は、仕事や学校を休んで、くつろいだり楽しんだりする比較的長い期間、つまり、休暇という意味もあります。
