video lesson where every week we
introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:10.110,0:00:14.670
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week

0:00:14.670,0:00:21.150

Okay, so to find out what this means and

how to use it please stay tuned, but
first, everyone let's begin with a quick

0:00:25.410,0:00:31.949
review of last week's class.
All right, so imagine I say : So, what are

0:00:31.949,0:00:37.140
your resolutions for this year? All right
it's a fresh year, it's a new start, what

0:00:37.140,0:00:42.660
are your goals. Okay, now you imagine you want to say well, you just want to work

0:00:42.660,0:00:47.789
hard so you can make money. Alright, so
how do you say that using the expression

0:00:47.789,0:00:56.550
from last week. I'll give you five
seconds. Are you ready? Okay go! Alright

0:00:56.550,0:01:02.850
and time is up, if you said : Just work
hard so I can bring home the bacon. And

0:01:02.850,0:01:07.530
that's exactly right, well done! Thank you
for remembering last week's class, all

0:01:07.530,0:01:13.890
right, so let's move on to - Dive in. Now,
this is what I sometimes hear. Alright, so

0:01:13.890,0:01:19.170
I am back at the office I'm talking to
my good friend and colleague taro and we

0:01:19.170,0:01:25.650
have a new project. Okay so I say: Taro,
are you ready to start our next big

0:01:25.650,0:01:33.000
project? Taro says: I can't wait to
get started! All right, that's good I like

0:01:33.000,0:01:38.430
your spirit taro. All right, now this is
fine, however, you might hear a native

0:01:38.430,0:01:44.009
English speaker say something like this:
I can't wait to dive in. Alright, just to

0:01:44.009,0:01:51.479
jump into the new project, to get started,
to go 100% to dive in. Okay, so whenever

0:01:51.479,0:01:56.280
you are going to start something, okay,
you're going to dive in, alright. But

0:01:56.280,0:02:01.920
start not start slowly, you really want
to start strong. All right, start with

0:02:01.920,0:02:07.160
