☆ two-way 双方向の
When we talk about communication, we often refer to communication as being a “two-way street” – in other words, it is just as important to listen as it is to speak. Anything that is “two-way” requires give-and-take. When something involves two people and both are affected by it (e.g. by the action, or the decision) then we call it a two-way street. Here are some of the most common examples:
Friendship is a two-way street; I know you’ll help me in return when I need it. (In other words, A is helping B now, and in the future, B will help A if needed.)
Marriage is a two-way street; both sides need to give and take for it to work.
He wants me to be more understanding and forgiving, but that is a two-way street. (In other words, she wants him to be more understanding and forgiving in return.)
Have you ever heard “two-way street” before? What was the situation?
