Hello everyone! Justin here. Hope you're having a great day

0:00:03.960,0:00:07.460
and welcome to another Bizmates for Beginners video lesson

0:00:07.460,0:00:11.460
where every week we introduce a new idiom, phrase, or expression that you can use

0:00:11.460,0:00:17.840
in your business conversation. And this week everyone we are going to learn:

0:00:17.840,0:00:19.840
Jump The Gun.

0:00:19.840,0:00:23.900
Ok, so to find out what this means and how to use it, please stay tuned.

0:00:23.900,0:00:27.840
But first, as always let's begin with a quick review

0:00:27.840,0:00:32.220
of last week's lesson. Alright, so imagine, I ask you:

0:00:32.220,0:00:37.720
How are the negotiations? Do you think we can get the contract?

0:00:37.820,0:00:44.920
And well in fact, yes. We pretty much have the contract 100% sealed.

0:00:44.920,0:00:49.500
So, how do you say that using the expression from last week.

0:00:49.500,0:00:53.740
I'll give you 5 seconds to think about it. Are you ready? Ok, go!

0:00:57.640,0:01:00.100
Alright, and time is up. If you said:

0:01:00.100,0:01:04.220
Yes. It's in the bag! Then that's exactly right.

0:01:04.220,0:01:07.400
Well done, and thank you for remembering last week's class everyone.

0:01:07.440,0:01:12.940
Ok, so let's move on to: Jump The Gun. Now this is what I sometimes hear.

0:01:12.960,0:01:17.840
Alright, so I'm in the meeting with my good friend and colleague Taro,

0:01:17.960,0:01:23.740
and Taro just presented a really interesting idea to me. And I say:

0:01:23.740,0:01:29.660
Taro, this is a great idea! Let's present this to our team!

0:01:29.740,0:01:37.780
Taro says: Well, let's not act too quickly! We should do more research first.

0:01:37.780,0:01:43.440
Ok, yes maybe your right Taro, maybe I'm acting a little bit too quickly.

0:01:43.480,0:01:48.360
Maybe we need some more information before we present to the team.

0:01:48.420,0:01:56.420
So, although he said let's not act too quickly, you may hear a native English speaker say this instead:

0:01:56.420,0:02:01.040
Let's not jump the gun! We should do more research first.

0:02:01.200,0:02:09.400
Ok, so whenever you act too quickly, before everything is ready, or before everything is prepared,

0:02:09.400,0:02:11.960
you are jumping the gun.

0:02:11.960,0:02:18.980
Ok? So let's do our research. Let's make sure everything ready, and then let's present.

0:02:18.980,0:02:24.740
Let's not act too quickly, let's not jump the gun. Ok?

0:02:25.100,0:02:29.040
Alright, so pronunciation, please repeat after me:

0:02:29.080,0:02:32.740
Let's not jump the gun. Jump the gun. Ok, your turn.

0:02:35.300,0:02:42.880
Alright, very good. Now after my sentence here. This is a good idea, let's present this to our team.

0:02:46.740,0:02:51.020
Good, ok. So, let's not jump the gun. We should do more research first.

0:02:51.020,0:02:54.940
Alright, so please remember this for our review next week.

0:02:55.720,0:03:01.180
Ok everyone, so our bonus question for this week is another way to say: Energish.

0:03:01.180,0:03:06.180
