presentation? And you were very very

move on to today's expression: "to be into

0:01:17.700,0:01:23.460

Yes. I really like reading about business.

0:01:39.020,0:01:44.660

must really like reading. Okay now this

0:01:44.670,0:01:49.290
is fine - it's easy and it's simple.
However, you may hear a native English

speaker say something like this:
Yes. I'm really into reading about business.

really, really like something, you're

0:02:03.329,0:02:10.679
really into something, okay? So I'm really
in to learning more about leadership,

it is, if you really, really enjoy it, if

really into it, okay everyone?

0:02:28.400,0:02:34.980
Alright so pronunciation here, so please repeat
after me: Yes. I'm really into reading

0:02:34.980,0:02:38.600
about business. I'm really into reading
about business. Your turn.

0:02:41.040,0:02:47.620
Alright very good. Okay now after my sentence here:
Wow. you have a lot of business books!

0:02:52.520,0:02:57.900
