Roll up my sleeves の自然な使い方を動画で学ぶ
Hello everyone, my name is Justin and
welcome back to another Bizmates for
Beginners video lesson, where every week, we introduce a new idiom, phrase or
expression that, yes, you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week,
everyone, we are going to learn to" roll
up my sleeves."To roll up my sleeves, just
like this. All right. What does it mean?
Well, let's find out, but first, as always,
let's begin with a quick review of last
week's class. All right everyone, so imagine
I ask you "Hey is everything okay in your
team?" But unfortunately, things aren't
going that smoothly. So how do you say
that using the expression from last week?
I'll give you five seconds to think
about it. Are you ready? All right, and go.
Okay and time is up. If you said
"Unfortunately, things are rocky," then
that's exactly right. Well done. Thank you
for remembering last week's class. Okay
let's move on to "to roll up my sleeves."
Now this is what I sometimes hear.
All right, so I am at the office. It's late.
Maybe 9:30, 10 o'clock p.m. I'm going
home after some overtime, but I see my
good friend and colleague Taro. He is
still working at the office
even though it is so late. So I say "Taro,
Wow you're here so late. Why? What's
happening? Taro says "Well the deadline is
tomorrow. Time to work hard." Okay, yes, you are a very
hard worker, Taro. I see that. So yes, maybe there's a tight deadline so he has to
work some overtime. He has to put in some hard work so he's got to stay here until
10:00 or 11:00. Okay, that's fine. Time to
work hard. Easy to understand. But you
might hear a native english-speakers say
"Well the deadline is tomorrow, so time to
roll up my sleeves." All right, so I'm sure
some of you have done this before. Maybe
before you wash the dishes, for example.
It's not very fun work. It's not easy
work but you don't want to get your
sleeves wet so you... you roll up your
sleeves like this, to prepare you for
some tough or challenging work ahead. All
right, so it's time to work hard. It's
time to roll up your sleeves and get
serious. Okay, all right. So for example my
presentation is next week so it's time
to... you know, roll up my sleeves and start preparing. All right? Or I have a really
important meeting that I need to prepare
for, so it's time to roll up my sleeves.
Okay all right, so pronunciation. So please
repeat after me everyone. "Time to roll up
my sleeves." "Roll up my sleeves." Okay, your
turn. Go ahead. Excellent. Okay now after
my sentence. Here. Wow you're here so late!
You say "Right. Yeah, and the deadline is
tomorrow so yeah, it's time to work hard.
Time to roll up my sleeves." Okay? All
right, so please remember this for next
Okay our bonus question this week,
everyone, is another way to say "We must
learn to be flexible to adapt to things."
To adapt to a sudden change. ¥If you know a better way of saying this you can feel
free to try and leave it in the comments
below. If you don't know but you are
curious, we have covered it in one of our
previous Bizmates for Beginners video
lessons, so take a look if you have the
time. All right everyone, so that is it
for us this week. Thank you always for
watching the channel. Have a great week
everyone and I will see you next time.
