In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Lemon
Today’s request for a Daily Dose of English comes from Ana Gassent from Spain. Ana has written… Hi Richard. We Spaniards say that a football player is a “crack” when he is way too good, but I’m afraid that is not the term in English. My question is what do you call a person who is very good at his job? And very bad? Do you call him/her a “lemon”? Thanks! Yes, Ana, I’ve heard students using the term “crack” in the classroom here is Spain. The closest English term is cracking. He’s a cracking player. This means that he’s very good at his job.
