☆  savvy  抜け目ない


This is an informal word, but it is often used in everyday English. You can describe someone as “being” savvy or as having “savvy.” If you describe someone as “being” savvy, it means you think that they show a lot of practical knowledge. For example, “His wife is a very savvy woman.”

On the other hand, describing someone as “having” savvy means that you think they have a good understanding and practical knowledge about something. For example, “He is known for his business savvy and strong management skills.”

On other words, when someone is savvy, it is talking generally about all their skills and knowledge. When someone has savvy, we are usually talking about one specific area, such as business, finance or relationships.
