一分钟英语:Small World

English in a Minute – Small World:太巧了吧

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

The world is very big. Or is it?

Something so strange happened to me.

A woman moved in right across the hall from me.

Doesn't seem too strange. It's an apartment building.

No, we went to college together years ago in China.

Okay, that is strange. It's a small world, Anna.

Right? Small world.

The phrase ""It's a small world"" is used to express surprise at how connected people are.

You can say this when you run into someone you knew a long time ago in a completely unexpected place.

And that's English in a Minute.
