Kiwi asks…

What does "ugly cycle" mean? Does it refer to a "vicious cycle"? If so, could you tell me some examples?


Answer from a Native speaker

teacher

Rebecca

Absolutely! "Vicious cycle" also works nicely here. Either way, the speaker is trying to express that the cycle is negative and undesirable. Ex: Many children who grow up in abusive families grow up to display the same behavior as adults. It's a rather vicious cycle. Ex: My friend's boyfriend is a habitual liar. They break up and get back together constantly. It's an ugly cycle.
