now, the voa special english program words and their stories.

(music)

last week, i told about the number one. today, i will tell about expressions using other numbers.

some problems are difficult to solve. but there are a lot of number expressions that can help. for example, if we put two and two together, we might come up with the right answer. we know that two heads are better than one. it is always better to work with another person to solve a problem.

sometimes there are no two ways about it. some problems have only one solution. you cannot be of two minds over this.

but with any luck, we could solve the problem in two shakes of a lamb's tail. we could have our answers quickly and easily.

sometimes we can kill two birds with one stone. that is, we can complete two goals with only one effort or action. but we must remember that two wrongs don't make a right. if someone does something bad to you, you should not do the same to him.

if you are going out with your girlfriend, or boyfriend, you do not want another friend to go along on your date. you can just say to your friend: two's company, three's a crowd.
