Bang for your buck の自然な使い方を動画で学ぶ
Hello everyone 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 daily business conversation.
This week, everyone, we are going to learn
"bang for your buck." OK? So to find out
what this means and how to use it, please
stay tuned, but first, as always, everyone,
let's start with a quick review of last
week's lesson. OK, everyone. So imagine I
ask you "Should we meet again before we
begin working on the new project?" But you think we need to start as soon as
possible. We've already met so many times. So let's start. How do you say that using
the expression from last week? I'll give
you five seconds to think about it. Are
you ready? OK, and go. Alright and time
is up. If you said "Yeah I think we should
get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
And that's exactly right. Well done and
thank you for remembering last week's
lesson everyone. OK, let's move on to "a
bang for your buck." Now this is what I
sometimes hear, OK? I have an upcoming
business trip, OK? I need to go to New
York. So I am asking my colleague and my
good friend Taro if he has some
suggestions for me. So I say"Taro, I'm
going to New York, so which hotel should
I book for my business trip? There's so
many hotels. I don't know which one is
good. Taro says "Well, I suggest the
Crossroads Hotel." it's a really good cost
performance." OK, so good value for my
money. If I pay this much money, I can get
maybe good or even really great service.
So it's good cost performance. Now this
is OK, but it's not very very natural
in this situation. Now you might hear a
native English speaker say this. "I
suggest the Crossroads Hotel. It's a real
bang for your buck. OK? So you get
really good value for your money. it's a real bang
for your buck. OK? So a buck actually
means dollar or dollars, so one buck two
bucks. It's a little bit of a casual
expression, but you might hear someone
say it's real... it's a real bang for your
buck. So it's a really good value for
your money spent.
OK, so pronunciation. As you see it here,
everyone, so please repeat after me. Bang
for your buck.
OK, bang for your buck. So go ahead. Good. Alright, now after my question.
So which hotel should I book for my
business trip? Good. OK. So you suggest
Crossroads Hotel. It's a real bang for
your buck. Or I might ask you a question
like "Which restaurant do you think I
should take our clients to?" Well,
something that you know isn't too cheap
but has good value for money.
So you might say "I recommend this
restaurant. That's a real bang for your
buck." OK? Alright, so please remember this for
next time, everyone. OK. Our bonus
question this week is another way to say
"I'll be there very soon." If you know what
the answer is to this, please feel free
to leave it in the comments below. If not,
don't worry you can find it in one of
our previous Bizmates for Beginners
video lessons. So take a look if you have
the time. Alright everyone, so that is
it for me this week. Thank you always for
watching. Have a great weekend everyone
and I'll see you next time. Bye bye.
