ጤና ይስጥልን፤ እንኳን አዳዲስ የእንግሊዝኛ አገላለፆችን እንዲማሩ ወደምናግዝበት English Expressions በደህና መጡ። ዛሬ 'game changer' “ወሳኝ ወይንም ሁኔታዎችን ቀያሪ”የተባለውን የእንግሊዝኛ አገላለጽ መጠቀምን እንማራለን። ምን ማለት ይመስልዎታል?. . .  እርግጠኛ አይደሉም? እሺ፥ መስማትዎን ይቀጥሉ። ፌይፌይ እና ሃሪን ያዳምጡ። ሃሪ ስለገዛው አንድ ነገር ፌይፌይ እየጠየቀች ነው። ምንድን ነው የገዛው፥ ስለዚህ ስለገዛው ነገርስ የሚያስበው ምንድን ነው?

Feifei
So Harry – did you end up buying a new TV like you were planning?

Harry
I certainly did - and then some! I don't know if 'TV' is really the right word for it though.

Feifei
Why not?

Harry
Well, it's so much more. It's got a 72-inch curved screen with ultimate high-definition and it's in 3D. When you watch a programme, it's like you're really there.

ሃሪ አሁን በአዲሱ ቴሌቭዥኑ ደስተኛ ይመስላችኋል? ስሜቱ በጣም የተነቃቃ ይመስላል፤ አይደል? አዎንታዊ ስሜት ለምን እንደተፈጠረበት ለማወቅ ማዳመጥዎን ይቀጥሉ።

Feifei
Wow - it sounds amazing.

Harry
It is! TV will never be the same again. In TV terms, it’s a real game changer.

Feifei
A game changer? What's that?

Harry
Well, it's so unlike any normal TV, that it's changed the rules of what TVs are. You will never think of TV in the same way if you watch my TV – it's a new world of television.

Feifei
So 'game changer' means something that is so new and different, it changes the rules of the game.

Harry
Exactly. It could be technology, like my TV, or a person with new ideas, or a new direction in music or fashion. Any new innovation that changes the current situation.

ሃሪ አዲሱ ቲቪው 'game changer' እንደሆነ ያስባል። 'game' ጨዋታ ማለት ሲሆን changer ደግሞ አንድ ሌላ ነገርን የሚቀይር ነገር ወይንም ሰው ማለት ነው። አገላለፁ የመነጨው ከስፖርት ዓለም ሳይሆን አይቀርም፤ አንድ የተወሰነ ድርጊት ወይንም ተጫዋች game ጨዋታውን change ሲቀይረው- game changer ሆነ ማለት ነው። አሁን በዘይቤያዊነት ከነበረው ሁኔታ በጣም የተለዩ ሆነው ጠቅላላውን ሁኔታ ስለሚቀይሩ ጉዳዮች ለማውራትም እንጠቀምበታለን። በዚህም ምክንያት ይህ አገላለፅ በዘመናዊ ቴክኖሎጂ ከሚደረጉ እምርታዎች ጋር በተያያዘ ጥቅም ላይ ይውላል። ሆኖም ነገሮች ለወትሮው ሲከናወኑ የነበሩበት ሁኔታ ላይ በከፍተኛ ደረጃ አዎንታዊ ለውጥ የሚያመጣ ማንኛውም ቁስ ወይንም ሰውን ለመግለፅም ያገለግላል። ምንም እንኳ ይህ አገላለፅ አንዳች ነገርን ለመግለፅ የሚጠቅም ቢሆንም ስም ነው፤ ስለዚህም ከ game changer ፊት “a”ን መጠቅም አይዘንጉ። ስለዚህ የሃሪ ቲቪ 'is a game changer'።

Examples
The Beatles' album Sergeant Pepper was a real game changer – it transformed pop music forever.

Our company needs a game changer – someone who can come in and rethink the way we do everything.

Last year my boss said we could all work from home whenever we needed to and it's been a real game changer in the way we work.

Feifei
So, some different types of game changers there. For people learning English, I suppose the internet has been a real game changer. You can study anytime, anywhere now.

Harry
You can – especially if you visit our website bbclearningenglish.com.

Feifei
Very true, if you want to improve your English, our website can be a real game changer. So, I suppose you're going to be staying in tonight.

Harry
Me? No, I'm going out.

Feifei
But, you've got an amazing new TV, the game changer.

Harry
I know, but it's Thursday, and there's never anything good on TV on Thursdays. And to be honest, I think I've been watching too much TV. I need to get out more.

Feifei
Oh well – I guess your TV didn't change the game for long.

ስለዚም የሃሪ ቲቪ ምናልባትም ያን ያህልም 'game changer' አይደለም ይሆናል። እርስዎስ? ኢንተርኔት እውነተኛ 'game changer' ነበር ብለው ያስባሉ? 'game changer' የሆኑ ሌሎች ፈጠራዎችንስ መጥቀስ ይችላሉ? ለተጨማሪ 'English Expressions' በሚቀጥለው ዝግጅታችን ይጠብቁን።
