Word of the week: "Third time lucky"

This week's expression is:

     Third time lucky      or     Third time is a charm

and it refers to the belief that the third time you try to do something you're more likely to succeed than the previous two attempts.

Our Spanish equivalent is 'a la tercera va la vencida'.

Have you ever achieved something on your third try? Tell us!

  1. As you Know, I started to learn English at the Languages School last year. Furthermore, I had never practiced the speaking before, so when I went to the high school, pupils didn't speak in English in class. Consequently, I got pass the dialogue test the third time I tried it.
    Honestly, I think the teacher was a bit generous to me, or maybe it was the third time lucky!
