Fall through の自然な使い方を動画で学ぶ
Hello, everyone, Justin here. And welcome
back 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 for something to "fall through".
So, what does this mean?
Let's find out. But first, as always, let's begin with a quick look at last week's class. All right, everyone.
So imagine, I asked you: "Hey, are these sales figures correct?"
And yes, they are exactly 100% accurate, 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? Okay, go.
All right, and time is up. If you said: "Yes, right on the money.", then well done.
Good job and thank you for remembering last week's lesson.
Okay let's move on to "fall through".
Now, this is what I sometimes hear.
All right. So, I am checking up on my good friend and colleague, Taro.
And recently, Taro has been negotiating
with one of our suppliers.
Maybe he's trying to get a better price or a better deal or something. So I say:
"Taro, how is the negotiation going with our suppliers? Is it going well? Is it going bad?"
Taro says: "Well, unfortunately, the negotiation was failed."
Okay. I am sorry to hear that business negotiations can be very tricky.
Okay, so although this is fine, yeah, it was
failed, it didn't go well, I get the meaning,
that's okay. You might hear a native English speakers say:
"Unfortunately, the negotiation fell
through." Okay. So, whenever something fails
or it didn't turn out successfully, it
didn't go the way you wanted it to,
it "fell through" is a very, actually, useful
expression. You can use this in many different situations.
For example, our plans tonight fell through.
Meaning, our plans tonight
didn't work out. They failed.
Our partnership, our business partnership
fell through. It didn't work out.
Okay? So, you can use this in a variety of
All right. So, pronunciation here, everyone,
so please repeat after me.
Fell through. Fell through. All right.
So, you can join those together
and it almost sounds like one word. Fell through.
Okay? Unfortunately, the negotiation fell through.
Your turn. All right, good. Now after my question: "So, how's the negotiation going with our supplier?"
you say: "All right. Unfortunately, the negotiation fell through."
It didn't work out. It failed. It didn't go the way I wanted. Okay?
Well, that happens sometimes so best of luck next time. Okay?
All right. So, let's move on to our bonus question which is another way to say
"that's a dangerous situation". Okay. You find something that, maybe, is a risk;
it's a dangerous situation. So what is it? It is a...? I'll give you a hint -
has something to do with color.
Okay. All right, if you know what the answer is,
please leave it in the comments below. If you don't know what the answer is,
well, we 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.
