For Life
2005.01.31(Review of 2002.06.24 edition)

Well, you've seen the announcements, and now it begins - WordMaster has come of age! This year, WordMaster turns five years old, and with over 1000 “WordMaster For Life” editions and nearly 400 “WordMaster@Work” editions in our archives, it's time to make review of this important body of work a regular part of the WordMaster curriculum.

Of course, we'll continue to send you brand new editions to keep your vocabulary growing, but you'll also receive regular review editions to help you “master” that vital set of words and expressions we've already introduced. We're excited about this new phase in the WordMaster project, and we hope you are too! So let's get started!!

コンディションが良くて、好調で / コンディションが悪くて


  • You are in shape if you are in good physical condition; for example, you don't have too much fat on your body, your muscles are strong, and you don't get tired easily from physical activity.

    You are out of shape if your body is NOT in good physical condition.

    Be careful! These expressions are NOT usually used to say whether a person is sick or not.
  • in shape は、体のコンディションが良い状態だ ― 例えば、体に脂肪がつきすぎていない、筋肉が丈夫だ、疲れにくい、など ― という意味です。

    反対に、体のコンディションが良くない場合は、out of shape と言います。



  1. I think my husband is in good shape for a man his age.
  2. She's been taking aerobics classes for six months now, so she's in great shape.
  3. Everyone on the team is working hard to get in shape for the start of the soccer season.
  4. I run and do push-ups and sit-ups every morning to stay in shape.
