Hello everyone! Justin here and welcome
back to another Bizmates for Beginners

0:00:04.620,0:00:09.660
video lesson where every week we
introduce a new idiom, phrase, or expression

0:00:09.660,0:00:14.790
that you can use in your daily business
conversation. This week everyone we are

0:00:14.790,0:00:21.029
going to learn: Stop And Smell The Roses.
Okay, so it's an interesting expression.

0:00:21.029,0:00:25.890
Let's find out what it means and how to
use it. But first as always, let's begin

0:00:25.890,0:00:31.500
with a quick review of last week's
lesson. Okay everyone, so imagine I say:

0:00:31.500,0:00:37.890
What you're thinking about changing jobs?
But you don't really know yet, so you

0:00:37.890,0:00:44.040
want me to keep this information kind of
secret. So how do you say that using the

0:00:44.040,0:00:48.500
expression from last week? We'll give you
five seconds. You ready? Okay, go!

0:00:53.280,0:00:59.640
Alright and time is up if you said: Yeah maybe.
But please keep it on the down-low.

0:00:59.640,0:01:03.390
Alright then, that's exactly right. Well
done, thank you for remembering last

0:01:03.390,0:01:09.720
week's class. Okay, let's move on to: Stop
And Smell The Roses. Now this is what I

0:01:09.720,0:01:16.080
sometimes hear. Okay, so it is a really
really busy time at the office and I

0:01:16.080,0:01:20.909
need to come to the office even on the
weekends. So I talked to my good friend

0:01:20.909,0:01:26.130
and colleague Taro. I say: Taro, yeah I
think I need to come to the office again

0:01:26.130,0:01:31.049
this weekend. There are so many things I
need to do. Just not enough time.

0:01:31.049,0:01:37.680
Taro says: Again?! Justin you should
relax.

0:01:37.680,0:01:42.180
Okey, yeah I agree relaxation is very
important. Thank you for the advice Taro.

0:01:42.180,0:01:46.530
Now he said you should relax, yeah this
is fine, it's simple. But if you wanted to

0:01:46.530,0:01:51.030
add a little spice to your English and
use a more interesting expression, you

0:01:51.030,0:01:57.420
can say: Yeah again Justin!? You really
should just you know stop and smell the

0:01:57.420,0:02:03.329
roses. Okay that means just take some
time to relax. Don't always think about

0:02:03.329,0:02:09.239
work. You need to enjoy the beauty of
life. Just enjoy the simple things. Take

0:02:09.239,0:02:14.190
it easy, relax, go for a walk stop, and
smell the roses.

0:02:14.190,0:02:19.110
Okay, so I know all of us are very very
busy right. We work very hard every day

0:02:19.110,0:02:24.930
but it's very important to just know how
to enjoy life. Do take it easy sometimes

0:02:24.930,0:02:28.620
to stop and smell the roses. Okay
everyone?

0:02:28.620,0:02:33.150
Alright, so pronunciation. It's as you see
it here, so please repeat after me:

0:02:33.150,0:02:36.660
You should stop and smell the roses.
Your turn.

0:02:39.700,0:02:45.960
Alright very good. Okay now after my sentence here. Yeah I think I need to come to the office again this

0:02:45.960,0:02:46.620

0:02:50.880,0:02:55.380
Okay. Again?! Yeah, you should take
it easy and relax. Stop and smell the roses

0:02:55.380,0:03:01.080
sometimes. Alright? Okay, so please remember
this for next time. Okay everyone?

0:03:01.080,0:03:05.640
Alright, our bonus question this week is
another way to say: They are rich. They

0:03:05.640,0:03:10.020
have a lot of money. So if you know how
to say this in a more natural way, please

0:03:10.020,0:03:13.890

don't know what it is but you are

0:03:13.890,0:03:18.630

previous video lessons so take a look if

0:03:18.630,0:03:23.550
