HEAD START   有利なスタート


  • A head start is something that gives you a better chance than other people of succeeding or winning in a competition. For example, if you are given a head start in a race, you are allowed to begin the race sooner than the other runners or from a position that is closer to the finish line.
  • head start とは、競争で成功したり勝ったりする可能性が、他の人よりも高いこと、つまり、有利なスタートのことです。たとえば、レースで head start を与えられていると、他の走者より早く走り始められたり、ゴールにより近い位置からスタートすることが出来ます。
