In this English lesson, I wanted to help you learn the English phrase too many cooks spoil the broth. Now, a cook is someone who cooks food in a kitchen and broth is like a very thin soup with not a lot of stuff in it. And basically, what the phrase means is if too many people try to make broth at the same time, the broth might not turn out the way you were expecting it to. It might not go very well. And we use this phrase to describe any job where too many people are working on the same task. You could say this at work. You could say ah, too many cooks spoil the broth when we all work together on the same job. And I picked this phrase because it kinda makes me laugh because there’s another phrase I’m going to teach you in a minute that means the exact opposite. I might have mentioned this before but certainly, when you say too many cooks spoil the broth, it means that if too many people work on a certain job, that job might not turn out the way you were expecting it to. You might end up doing a bad job.
