Hello everyone Justin here and welcome back to another Bizmates for Beginners
00:04
video lesson where every week we introduced a new idiom, phrase, or
00:08
expression that you can use in your daily business conversation. This week
00:13
everyone, we are going to learn: To Fast Track (Something). Okay so to find out what
00:19
this means and how to use it stay tuned. But first let's kick off today's video
00:24
with a quick review of last week's class. Alright, so imagine I say: I hear you
00:31
decided on the name of our new product! And maybe you did but you actually
00:37
changed your mind. So how do you say that using the expression from last week?
00:43
You've got five seconds. Are you ready? Alright and go!
00:50
Okay and time is up if you said: Well actually I had a change of heart. I need more time to think about it.
00:59
Then that's exactly right. Well done and thank you for remembering last week's
01:03
class. Okay everyone, so let's move on to: To Fast Track (Something). Now this is what
01:09
I sometimes hear. Okay so I'm working at the office with my colleague Taro but
01:15
things aren't going so well. We are not making good progress with our project so
01:23
I say: You know Taro, we are way behind schedule. Taro says: Yes we need to make
01:32
priority our progress. Okay so maybe the progress of the project maybe it's not a
01:38
high priority. Okay maybe it's kind of down here in the middle somewhere, so we
01:43
need to make our progress a priority. Yeah I think this is okay I understand.
01:49
However you might hear a native English speakers say: Yes we need to fast track
01:55
our progress. This means we need to make it a top priority. We need to speed up.
02:01
Okay we need to work quickly. It has to be a top priority so we need to fast
02:08
track the project. In this case or fast track our progress.
02:13
So for example, you could also say we need to fast-track our time frame. Okay
02:20
so maybe the project timeline or time frame is like this. But you know we have
02:24
a deadline we need to make sure we get it out early. So we might shorten it we
02:29
need to make it a priority, we need to focus on it we need to speed it up.
02:34
We need to fast-track it okay. Alright so please remember that for next week.
02:39
Now pronunciation, so please repeat after me everyone:
02:42
We need to fast track our progress. Your turn!
02:49
Okay great. Now after my sentence here: We are way behind schedule. What should we do?
02:58
That's right yeah: We need to fast track our progress. Okay, alright so please keep this in mind.
03:04
We'll touch on this in our class next week for the review. Okay everyone so our bonus
03:10
question this week is another way to say: relax. Alright take it easy, but it's
03:16
something else I'll give you a hint. It starts with smell and it ends with some
03:20
kind of flower. Alright? If you know what the answer is
03:23
please leave it in the comments below. If you don't know what the answer is you
03:27
can find it in one of our previous Bizmates for Beginners video lessons, so
03:31
take a look if you have the time. Alright everyone so that is it for us this week.
03:36
Thank you always for watching! Have a great week and we will see you next time.
03:41
