Today’s Word: action

☆  action  行動


An action is something you do for some particular purpose. You might hear about some people being all talk, no action. This means that they say they will do X or Y or Z, but they never do. This month is all about learning like a baby, and I think that the biggest difference between babies and adults is that babies are always taking action.

Even when it looks like babies are just lying around doing not much at all, they are taking tiny actions – testing out how their legs work, or what their arms can do. Rolling over and lifting their necks up to build strength. In other words, they’re only taking tiny actions but these actions are so important for their next steps.

So, even though it might feel like you are only making small steps or small progress in your English study, as long as you are taking some kind of action regularly, you’ll reach your goals.
