Hi students, it’s Shayna from EspressoEnglish.net, and today I’m going to teach you two phrases with the word “game”. The first one is “a game plan.”
A game plan means a strategy for success, especially in business or politics. For example, my company is coming up with a game plan to expand our business into Asia. The phrasal verb “coming up with” means creating or inventing. So this phrase means my company is creating a strategy to succeed in expanding the business into a new region: Asia.
The other expression, “ahead of the game,” means to have a strategic advantage, especially in a situation where there’s lots of competition.
For example, people who speak two languages fluently are ahead of the game when it comes to getting a job at a multinational company. People who speak to languages have an advantage in this competitive situation of getting a job at a multinational company.
So there you have it, two phrases with the word “game”: a game plan, meaning a strategy for success, especially in business or politics, and ahead of the game, meaning to have a strategic advantage in a competitive situation.
