Hello everyone! Justin here. Hope you're having a great day
and welcome to another Bizmates for Beginners video lesson
where every week we introduce a new idiom, phrase, or expression that you can use
in your business conversation. And this week everyone we are going to learn:
Jump The Gun.
Ok, so to find out what this means and how to use it, please stay tuned.
But first, as always let's begin with a quick review
of last week's lesson. Alright, so imagine, I ask you:
How are the negotiations? Do you think we can get the contract?
And well in fact, yes. We pretty much have the contract 100% sealed.
So, how do you say that using the expression from last week.
I'll give you 5 seconds to think about it. Are you ready? Ok, go!
Alright, and time is up. If you said:
Yes. It's in the bag! Then that's exactly right.
Well done, and thank you for remembering last week's class everyone.
Ok, so let's move on to: Jump The Gun. Now this is what I sometimes hear.
Alright, so I'm in the meeting with my good friend and colleague Taro,
and Taro just presented a really interesting idea to me. And I say:
Taro, this is a great idea! Let's present this to our team!
Taro says: Well, let's not act too quickly! We should do more research first.
Ok, yes maybe your right Taro, maybe I'm acting a little bit too quickly.
Maybe we need some more information before we present to the team.
So, although he said let's not act too quickly, you may hear a native English speaker say this instead:
Let's not jump the gun! We should do more research first.
Ok, so whenever you act too quickly, before everything is ready, or before everything is prepared,
you are jumping the gun.
Ok? So let's do our research. Let's make sure everything ready, and then let's present.
Let's not act too quickly, let's not jump the gun. Ok?
Alright, so pronunciation, please repeat after me:
Let's not jump the gun. Jump the gun. Ok, your turn.
Alright, very good. Now after my sentence here. This is a good idea, let's present this to our team.
Good, ok. So, let's not jump the gun. We should do more research first.
Alright, so please remember this for our review next week.
Ok everyone, so our bonus question for this week is another way to say: Energish.
If you know what the answer is, please leave it in the comments below. If you don't know what the answer is,
Well, you are in luck because we have covered it in our previous
Bizmates for Beginners video lesson so please take a look if you have the time.
And of course I will leave the answer to last week's bonus question in the information below.
Alright, so ok, that is it for us this week everyone. Thank you very much for always watching the channel.
Have a great weekend and I will see you next time!
