English in a Minute – Lefty Loosey, Righty Tighty:左松右紧

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Things like this peanut butter lid screw on to the right and off to the left.

To remember this, we have a little expression. Let's listen.

Anna, how's the repair going?

I'm trying to loosen this screw, but it's stuck.

Remember lefty loosey, righty tighty.

I know, Jonathan.

No, your other left.

Thanks, Jonathan.

There you go. That's right.

Be quiet, Jonathan!

"Lefty loosey, righty tighty" reminds us how to loosen a screw.

Turning to the left loosens it, and turning it to the right makes it tighter.

You just have to know your right from your left, Anna.

And that's English in a Minute!
