☆  draw 引き分けになる


This is actually mainly a British word, but it’s the word I always use. It means that in a game or competition, if one person draws with another, or if two teams draw, they have the same number of points or goals at the end of the game.

Do you know the American word for the same meaning? In America, they tend to say, “tie.” Here are some examples:

England and France drew one-one.
They drew with Ireland in the first game.
The two teams tied, and it went into a penalty shootout.
I couldn’t believe it that both teams were tied for first place!

Of course, in the Olympics, tying or drawing for a medal or place doesn’t happen very often, but it can.
