I’m sold の自然な使い方を動画で学ぶ
Hello everyone, and welcome back to
another Bizmates For Beginners video lesson
where every week we introduced a
new idiom, phrase, or expression
that you can use in your daily business conversation.
This week, everyone, we are going to learn "I'm Sold".
Okay. So, to find out what this means and how to use it, please stay tuned. But first, as always, let's begin with a quick review of last week's class.
All right, everyone. So, imagine I say
"Wow! you're here so late!"
Maybe it's 10:30, 11:00 PM, but you are
still working very hard. And you respond by saying
"What? Well, you've got a big deadline tomorrow, so you have to work hard."
How do you say that using the
expression from last week?
You've got five seconds. Are you ready? All right and go! All right and time is up. If you said
"Well, the deadline is tomorrow, so time to
roll up my sleeves.", then that's exactly right.
Well done and thank you for
remembering last week's class. Okay, everyone.
Let's move on to "I'm sold." Now,
this is what I sometimes hear. All right.
So, I'm talking to my good friend and
colleague, Taro, and I'm really excited
because I have this great business idea. So, I say
"Taro, you know, what do you think about the business model?"
"It's great, right?"
Maybe I've been talking to him for, maybe, 20 30 minutes.
I'm really trying to convince him about my idea. So, Taro says
"Yes, I believe your idea. So what do you
need me to do?"
Okay. So, it seems like I've been able to
convince Taro of my idea.
He thinks it's a great idea. So, what's the next step? Okay. Now, this is fine, "I believe your idea",
but you might hear a native English speaker
say this instead
"I'm sold. Okay. So, what do you need me to do?"
All right. So, whenever anyone convinces you of something, they've persuaded you,
they've won you to their side, then you
are sold on their idea.
So, you can simply say, "I'm sold."
"How much does it cost?" Okay,
if someone is trying to sell you something, for example.
Like, "Oh, you should buy this laptop because the features are great
and it's, you know, it doesn't cost
so much money. You say "Okay. Yeah, I'm sold.
So, what do I do next?" Okay? So whenever
someone convinces you of something you can say
"I'm sold." Okay? All right. So, very
easy pronunciation as you see it here.
So, please repeat after me,
"I'm sold. What do you need me to do?" Your turn.
All right, good. So, after my sentences here.
"So, what do you think about the business model?
It's great, right?"
You say "That's right. Yeah, I'm sold.
What do you need me to do?"
Okay? All right. So, please remember this for next week's review.
All right. Our bonus question this week, everyone,
is another way to say "get nervous."
Okay, sometimes you felt this, I'm sure.
how do you say this using the expression from one of our Bizmates For Beginners video lessons?
If you know the answer, you can leave it
in the comments below. If you don't know,
well, we have covered it in one of our
previous 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.
Have a great week, everyone,
and I will see you next time.
