一分钟英语:Talk is Cheap

English in a Minute – Talk is Cheap:光说是没有用的

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Some people talk a lot. Others, not so much.

But how can talking have a price?

Jonathan, this weekend I am going to organize my work space.

It's going to be clean and organized.

You've been talking about that for months!

It takes time.

Anna, talk is cheap. Just clean your office.

It's easy to say you're going to do something.

It's a lot harder to actually do it.

This is what "talk is cheap" means.

Another expression that means the same thing is "action speak louder than words."

And that's English in a minute!
