„You find peace when you come to terms with what you don’t know”

„Znajdziesz spokój, gdy pogodzisz się z tym, czego nie wiesz”

 

That quote speaks about understanding and accepting things we can’t control in life, much like the idiom we’re exploring today.

In this episode we’re going to practise an idiom „come to terms with something”. 

You’ll be surprised how we can apply it both to personal challenges and group discussions or negotiations, and we’ll explore these through 10 practical examples.

So warm up your mouth and ears and let’s start practising!

1. Come to terms with – Accept something difficult czyli pogodzić się z czymś.
