Today's Lesson
WIN THE (GOLD) MEDAL   (金)メダルをとる


  • When someone comes in first in an Olympic event, we say that they win the gold medal. The person who comes in second wins the silver medal, and the person who comes in third wins the bronze medal.
  • オリンピックで1番になった場合、win the gold medal(金メダルをとる)と言います。2番目は win the silver medal(銀メダルをとる)、3番目は win the bronze medal(銅メダルをとる)と言います。
