Question

How do you say, "no chance" in Japanese?

How would you say these sentences naturally in Japanese?

  1. There's no chance for us to win this game.
  2. He never really had a chance to get into that college, but he studied very hard.

So if you want to say "no chance" = impossible, you can say this by using 無理(ムリ).

  1. この試合を勝つのは無理だ。→ このしあいを かつのは むりだ。
  2. その大学に入学するのは元々無理だった。→ そのだいがくに にゅうがくするのは もともと むりだった。

元々 is a way to say, "from the beginning."
