Hello everyone and welcome back to
another Bizmates for Beginners video

0:00:05.160,0:00:10.320
lesson where every week we introduced a
new idiom, phrase, or expression that you

0:00:10.320,0:00:15.030
can use in your daily business
conversation. This week everyone we are

0:00:15.030,0:00:20.970
going to learn: In The Pipeline. In the
pipeline. So to find out what this means

0:00:20.970,0:00:24.779
and how to use it stay tuned.
But first, what do you say we start with

0:00:24.779,0:00:31.380
a quick review of last week's class. Okay
everyone, so you imagine I ask you:

0:00:31.380,0:00:37.260
Can you understand these contract details?
Because it is very difficult. There's a

0:00:37.260,0:00:42.899
lot of legal terminology, a lot of hard
expressions, I can't understand what it

0:00:42.899,0:00:48.629
means. And you also feel the same. You
can't understand it because it's too

0:00:48.629,0:00:53.540
complicated. What do you say? You've got
five seconds. Are you ready? Okay go!

0:00:57.460,0:01:03.200
Alright and time is up. If you said: Not
really. It's all Greek to me.

0:01:03.210,0:01:07.290
Then that's exactly right. Well done.
Thank you for remembering the expression.

0:01:07.290,0:01:12.780
Okay everyone, let's move on to: In The
Pipeline. Now this is what I sometimes

0:01:12.780,0:01:19.799
hear. Okay, so I'm at the office and I'm
wondering I'm curious I want an update

0:01:19.799,0:01:27.030
on this project. So I asked my good
colleague Taro say: Taro, any idea when

0:01:27.030,0:01:33.180
the new feature will be ready? Maybe we
started developing this project a few

0:01:33.180,0:01:40.880
months ago. So is it. What's the situation?
Taro says: No, but it's developing now.

0:01:40.880,0:01:48.030
Okay, so maybe I think Taro could also say:
No but it's being developed now. Okay, so

0:01:48.030,0:01:51.720
that might be a little bit better in
terms of grammar here. But yeah it's

0:01:51.720,0:01:56.070
developing now, I can understand what
Taro is trying to say here. Now although

0:01:56.070,0:01:59.000
this is fine, you might hear a native English speaker

0:01:59.000,0:02:05.579
say this: No, but it's in the pipeline. So
meaning it's being produced. It's being

0:02:05.579,0:02:13.140
created, it is being developed. Okay it's
in the pipeline. Alright everyone, so for

0:02:13.140,0:02:15.959
example, yeah the new project is in the pipeline,

0:02:15.959,0:02:20.040
the new system it's in the pipeline.
Someone's working on it and well

0:02:20.040,0:02:24.239
hopefully they can launch it or release
it soon. It's in the pipeline.

0:02:24.239,0:02:27.690
Okay, pronunciation everyone, so please
repeat after me.

0:02:27.690,0:02:31.400
It's in the pipeline. In the pipeline.
Your turn!

0:02:33.700,0:02:39.920
Good. It's in the pipeline. Now after my question:
So any idea when the new feature will be ready?

0:02:42.840,0:02:46.540
No, but it's in the pipeline. So hopefully
in a few weeks or

0:02:46.680,0:02:51.120
in a month or so. Okay? Alright so
please remember this for next time.

0:02:51.120,0:02:56.340
Alright everyone, so this week's bonus
question is another way to say: I am so

0:02:56.340,0:03:00.840
happy. I hope all of you are happiest, oh
