English in a Minute – A Mixed Bag:好坏参半

Welcome to English in a Minute.

We use bags to hold just about everything.

So, what might we put in a mixed bag? Let's find out.

A Mixed Bag

Hey, how was the party at Bernie's last weekend?

Well, it was a mixed bag.

What do you mean?

The people were interesting, but the food was awful.

The music was great, but it was way too loud.

That does sound like a mixed bag.

"A mixed bag" has a few meanings.

It can mean a situation has a variety of things... some good and some bad.

It can also describe a range of different people or things.

And that's English in a Minute.
