Expression of the week: falar é fácil


“Falar é fácil”.

English equivalent: “talk is cheap; easier said than done”.

Sample sentences:

Informal context: “I can run much faster than you.”     “Talk is cheap. Let’s see if you can really do it!”

Neutral/ more formal context:  “We believe the company can grow 5% this year”.   “That’s easier said than done. We’ll have to work hard for that”.
