Practice makes perfect 英文諺語
Practice makes perfect 熟能生巧
Doing something over and over again is the only way to learn to do it well.
If you’re an athlete, you know all about sports practices. If you’re a musician, you know all about practicing with your instrument. If you have a math class, you know all about practicing your basic math facts.
You may have even heard a popular saying that many people use often: “Practice makes perfect!” But have you ever wondered whether that’s really true? Does practice really…eventually…make perfect? Always?
Sometimes practice does make perfect. Take a math test, for example. If you know you’re going to have a math test on your multiplication facts in a week, you can practice those facts over and over again before the test. If you get a 100% on your test, that’s perfect and you can safely say the practice helped get you there.
In other areas of life, though, practice doesn’t always make perfect. That doesn’t mean that practice doesn’t help. Sometimes it just means that there’s no such thing as “perfect” in a certain area.
Jack: “How come you’re so good at peeling potatoes?”
Mat: “I did it a lot in the army, and practice makes perfect.”
