VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Example: "The buzz around the office is that he will be fired by our new boss today" or "The buzz around the company is that Marie will get married soon to an American."
A "buzzer" is a bell or a ringing device that you press to alert someone or to get their attention. Examples:
"When you get to Pavel’s apartment, just buzz the door" or "Press the buzzer on the left, and the door will open."
In these uses, again the word buzzer refers to something you press to alert someone or to access something, like the opening up of a door.
In Europe and around much of the industrialized world, in many apartment complexes, it is quite common to see a row or rows of buzzers next to a list of the names of families who live there.
Another use for the word buzzer has to do with sports television.
In many game shows on TV, people competing against one another often have to answer questions for prizes and money, as long as they do it within a certain period of time. If they don’t answer fast enough, the buzzer rings, and their turn is over because they didn’t answer before the buzzer rang. Examples:
"The contest was over at the buzzer, he did not give the answer in time" or "The ring judges declared that the boxer hit the other man after the buzzer had ended the match."
Joke of the Day: Curiosities of Life
1. IF so-called "psychics" REALLY exist, how come they never win the lottery or ever in Las Vegas?
2. When a company that makes dog food with a "new, improved flavor," WHO tastes it to REALLY make sure that this is true?
3. How come there is no mouse-flavored cat food? Wouldn’t the cats love something like this?
4. Why does rain "drop" and snow "fal"?
