Today’s Word: precipice

☆  precipice   危機


A precipice is a very steep cliff on a mountain, however, when we talk about someone being on the edge of a precipice (in other words, on the edge of the steep cliff where they could easily fall) we mean that they are in a dangerous situation and are close to disaster or failure. For example, “He finally admitted to himself that his marriage was heading toward the edge of a precipice.”

When you are on the edge of a precipice, you probably need to make some big changes to avoid disaster! Have you ever been on the brink of a precipice? What did you do to escape failure?
