English in a Minute – Kill Two Birds with One Stone:一举两得

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Birds are lovely animals.

So why would Anna and Jonathan want to kill two birds with one stone?

Anna, where did you get that red wagon?

Jonathan, I needed exercise and fruit.

Ah! So, you killed two birds with one stone by pulling the wagon to the store.

Yes! Maybe next time I can read a book, too.

Oh! Be careful.

If you "kill two birds with one stone," you solve two problems or finish two tasks with one action.

This saves time and energy.

Just make sure the things you're doing at the same time are safe to do at the same time!

And that's English in a Minute!
