Are these sentences interchangeable? (hit a winning streak& be on a winning streak) I want to know whether or not each-two is the just difference expression indicating the each same thing. Are 1 and 2 interchangeable, and also 3 and 4? 1.The team has been on a winning streak since it won against Lazio. 2.The team has hit a winning streak since it won against Lazio. 3.You are on a winning streak. 4.You've been always hitting a winning streak.

Hi Amy, You could definitely say either 1 or 2. There would be a slight difference in them but the meaning is the same - the team played Lazio, they won and they have won all their matches since the win against Lazio. 3 and 4 are not the same. You would say 3 but 4 is not something you would say. Instead for 4 you would say "You have hit a winning streak", that would be the interchangeale form. Hope this makes sense and is of some help to you. Enjoy your weekend.
