Hello everyone, and welcome back to
another Bizmates For Beginners video lesson

0:00:05.520,0:00:09.340
where every week we introduced a
new idiom, phrase, or expression

0:00:09.340,0:00:12.720
that you can use in your daily business conversation.

0:00:13.060,0:00:17.380
This week, everyone, we are going to learn "I'm Sold".

0:00:17.560,0:00:27.440
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.

0:00:28.160,0:00:33.560
All right, everyone. So, imagine I say
"Wow! you're here so late!"

0:00:33.560,0:00:42.740
Maybe it's 10:30, 11:00 PM, but you are
still working very hard. And you respond by saying

0:00:42.740,0:00:47.100
"What? Well, you've got a big deadline tomorrow, so you have to work hard."

0:00:47.100,0:00:50.600
How do you say that using the
expression from last week?

0:00:50.880,0:01:01.440
You've got five seconds. Are you ready? All right and go! All right and time is up. If you said

0:01:01.440,0:01:08.120
"Well, the deadline is tomorrow, so time to
roll up my sleeves.", then that's exactly right.

0:01:08.120,0:01:13.200
Well done and thank you for
remembering last week's class. Okay, everyone.

0:01:13.200,0:01:19.540
Let's move on to "I'm sold." Now,
this is what I sometimes hear. All right.

0:01:19.540,0:01:26.540
So, I'm talking to my good friend and
colleague, Taro, and I'm really excited

0:01:26.540,0:01:34.800
because I have this great business idea. So, I say
"Taro, you know, what do you think about the business model?"

0:01:34.800,0:01:36.140
"It's great, right?"

0:01:36.140,0:01:41.220
Maybe I've been talking to him for, maybe, 20 30 minutes.

0:01:41.260,0:01:47.299
I'm really trying to convince him about my idea. So, Taro says

0:01:47.299,0:01:53.340
"Yes, I believe your idea. So what do you
need me to do?"

0:01:53.340,0:02:00.960
Okay. So, it seems like I've been able to
convince Taro of my idea.

0:02:00.960,0:02:08.200
He thinks it's a great idea. So, what's the next step? Okay. Now, this is fine, "I believe your idea",

0:02:08.200,0:02:13.500
but you might hear a native English speaker
say this instead

0:02:13.500,0:02:16.780
"I'm sold. Okay. So, what do you need me to do?"

0:02:16.780,0:02:23.880
All right. So, whenever anyone convinces you of something, they've persuaded you,

0:02:23.880,0:02:30.560
they've won you to their side, then you
are sold on their idea.

0:02:30.560,0:02:33.060
So, you can simply say, "I'm sold."

0:02:33.060,0:02:38.080
"How much does it cost?" Okay,
if someone is trying to sell you something, for example.

0:02:38.140,0:02:43.380
Like, "Oh, you should buy this laptop because the features are great

0:02:43.380,0:02:48.360
and it's, you know, it doesn't cost
so much money. You say "Okay. Yeah, I'm sold.

0:02:48.360,0:02:54.680
So, what do I do next?" Okay? So whenever
someone convinces you of something you can say

0:02:54.680,0:02:59.820
"I'm sold." Okay? All right. So, very
easy pronunciation as you see it here.

0:02:59.820,0:03:06.980
So, please repeat after me,
"I'm sold. What do you need me to do?" Your turn.

0:03:06.980,0:03:10.580
All right, good. So, after my sentences here.

0:03:10.580,0:03:17.140
"So, what do you think about the business model?
It's great, right?"

0:03:17.140,0:03:20.000
You say "That's right. Yeah, I'm sold.
What do you need me to do?"

0:03:20.000,0:03:24.440
Okay? All right. So, please remember this for next week's review.

0:03:24.440,0:03:27.000
All right. Our bonus question this week, everyone,

0:03:27.000,0:03:32.820
is another way to say "get nervous."
Okay, sometimes you felt this, I'm sure.

0:03:32.820,0:03:38.640
how do you say this using the expression from one of our Bizmates For Beginners video lessons?

0:03:38.640,0:03:43.500
If you know the answer, you can leave it
in the comments below. If you don't know,

0:03:43.500,0:03:49.040
well, we have covered it in one of our
previous lessons, so take a look if you have the time.

0:03:49.320,0:03:53.600
All right, everyone. So, that is it for us this week.
Thank you always for watching.

0:03:53.600,0:03:56.220
Have a great week, everyone,
and I will see you next time.

0:03:56.220,0:03:58.700
Bye bye.
