Phrase Friday:

I will share an English phrase with you!

Today

’s phrase is “the tables have turned.”

This phrase is used when something has completely changed (usually the opposite of what it used to be).

————————

Example:

John used to make fun of Chris for playing games. Now the tables have turned, and John is playing games too.

The soccer team was losing the match at first, but they were able to turn the tables and beat the other team.

————————

Can you come up with your own example using this phrase?

Were you able to understand the joke in the picture?

    At first, I was losing against Jim on the tennis game but I made the tables turned on the second half! I won the match. 🙏Is this correct? If someone would give some advice or correct, I’d be happy.

    @Siham كانت ببالي لكن ليس فعلًا المثل الذي استخدمته عندما ينال الواحد من كيده وينقلب عليه أما. هنا فحدوث غير المعتاد
