Week 2 (2016/2017)

Meaning: If you do something against all odds, or against all the odds, you do it even though there were many problems and it didn't seem possible to do.

For example:

  • He had a serious accident and was close to death but, against all odds, he recovered and now he's fine.
  • No-one thought we could do it but, against all the odds, we won the Olympic gold medal.

Saying of the week:

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Possible interpretation: It's better to have one of something for certain than to run after two of the same thing and not be sure of getting them.
