'Speak the same language' nghĩa là có chung tiếng nói, hợp nhau (understand one another as a result of shared opinions or values).

Ví dụ
Choosing wine requires knowledge that young people don't have, Westrelin said. That's why they seek information from people they trust (which may very well not be the brand itself), someone who speaks the same language, and someone they can relate to.

Memphis believes in Gasol, his talent, and experience. According to the 33-year old defensive stopper, he is fortunate: “I’m lucky to have a very good relationship with the owner. We are honest with each other, very sincere. We speak the same language, in that regard. We know each other very well, and we have a close relationship.”

Success in social entrepreneurship is contingent upon solid relationships between all stakeholders. Through mutual empathy and understanding, your executive team, Board of Directors, employees, funders, and partners need to align with your social mission. Your mission is what ultimately impacts your end beneficiaries. In another layer of complexity, your end beneficiaries are likely not the partners or funders you are selling to. In this context, ensuring that all your stakeholders are speaking the same language goes far beyond literal language translation.

'On the same page' = (of two or more people) in agreement -> nghĩa là đồng ý, nhất trí với nhau (về vấn đề gì); nghĩ giống nhau.

Ví dụ
US and South Korea 'on the same page,' vice foreign minister says.

A lot of people apparently are on the same page. "This is the first day of the year we've rented every single boat we have in service already before noon. That's impressive for us," harbormaster Shelby Allman said.

Since you're allowed to start taking benefits as early as age 62, you're actually looking at an eight-year window to claim Social Security. But if you and your partner don't get on the same page with regard to choosing a filing age, you could miss the chance to really maximize your benefits.

If we have a game plan, and we stick with it, we need everybody to be on the same page. I don’t think every game we’ve played everyone’s been on the same page. Sometimes it’s individual errors, lack of concentration … we need to cut out that kind of stuff, and have a well-rounded professional performance from the guys.
