English in a Minute – To Keep One's Cool:保持冷静

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

When it's really hot outside, you want to find a place to stay cool.

But "keeping your cool" has another meaning too.

To keep one's cool.

Anna, a man driving his car almost hit me in the crosswalk yesterday.

Then he started yelling at me.

Did you yell at him, too?

No, I kept my cool.

I calmly explained to him that I was not the one disobeyed traffic rules. He was.

To "keep your cool" means to stay calm and in control in a difficult situation.

Keeping your cool is the opposite of losing your cool, when you might get angry and out of control.

And that's English in a Minute.
