“I’m worried about the test today. It’s really important.” 「今日のテストが心配だ。大事なテストなんだ。」

“Don’t worry. I know you studied a lot. You’ve got this!” 「心配しないで。たくさん勉強したでしょう?きみならできる!」

「You’ve got this」や「You got this」を使って友達を励ます。「You can do it」に似ている意味です。あるチャレンジを乗り越えることができると強く信じていることを友達に表します。

People often say, “You’ve got this!” or sometimes, “You got this!” when encouraging a friend. It’s similar to “You can do it!” You can say this to show you are confident your friend can meet some challenge.

“That seems like too good of a deal. Are you sure there are no strings attached?” 「あまりにも良すぎる話ですが、本当に条件付きではないのですか?」


If someone gives you something with “no strings attached” it means there are no conditions or hidden fees. If you sign up for a free trial, but it turns out it’s only free if you buy something afterward, that’s a “string”.

「No strings attached」という表現はもしかして売られている布の小さな傷や不良を指すために使われる糸から来ると思われています。

The phrase “no strings attached” might come from strings used to mark flaws or defects in cloth being sold.

The 1964 stop motion animation is also well-known.
