To fast track (something) 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 introduced a new idiom, phrase, or
expression that you can use in your daily business conversation. This week
everyone, we are going to learn: To Fast Track (Something). Okay so to find out what
this means and how to use it stay tuned. But first let's kick off today's video
with a quick review of last week's class. Alright, so imagine I say: I hear you
decided on the name of our new product! And maybe you did but you actually
changed your mind. So how do you say that using the expression from last week?
You've got five seconds. Are you ready? Alright and go!
Okay and time is up if you said: Well actually I had a change of heart. I need more time to think about it.
Then that's exactly right. Well done and thank you for remembering last week's
class. Okay everyone, so let's move on to: To Fast Track (Something). Now this is what
I sometimes hear. Okay so I'm working at the office with my colleague Taro but
things aren't going so well. We are not making good progress with our project so
I say: You know Taro, we are way behind schedule. Taro says: Yes we need to make
priority our progress. Okay so maybe the progress of the project maybe it's not a
high priority. Okay maybe it's kind of down here in the middle somewhere, so we
need to make our progress a priority. Yeah I think this is okay I understand.
However you might hear a native English speakers say: Yes we need to fast track
our progress. This means we need to make it a top priority. We need to speed up.
Okay we need to work quickly. It has to be a top priority so we need to fast
track the project. In this case or fast track our progress.
So for example, you could also say we need to fast-track our time frame. Okay
so maybe the project timeline or time frame is like this. But you know we have
a deadline we need to make sure we get it out early. So we might shorten it we
need to make it a priority, we need to focus on it we need to speed it up.
We need to fast-track it okay. Alright so please remember that for next week.
Now pronunciation, so please repeat after me everyone:
We need to fast track our progress. Your turn!
Okay great. Now after my sentence here: We are way behind schedule. What should we do?
That's right yeah: We need to fast track our progress. Okay, alright so please keep this in mind.
We'll touch on this in our class next week for the review. Okay everyone so our bonus
question this week is another way to say: relax. Alright take it easy, but it's
something else I'll give you a hint. It starts with smell and it ends with some
kind of flower. Alright? If you know what the answer is
please leave it in the comments below. If you don't know what the answer is you
can find it in one of our previous Bizmates for Beginners video lessons, so
take a look if you have the time. Alright everyone so that is it for us this week.
Thank you always for watching! Have a great week and we will see you next time.
