Good morning.

Today we complete our look at English expressions that use the word hand in them.

Today's expression is: to play into someone's hands

Meaning: to do exactly what an enemy, opponent, etc. wants so that they gain the advantage in a particular situation.

Example 1:
If we get the authorities involved, we'll be playing into the protesters' hands. Let's just keep quiet.

Example 2:
Jim played into my hands by taking the books that I left on the table. I caught him and told the director!

Remember that tomorrow we will send the Essential Weekly Vitamin for Spanish-speaking students of English.

I hope you have a good day.
