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 to: Wrap One's Head Around
(Something). Ok, so to find out what this
means and how to use it stay tuned. But
first let's do a quick review of last
week's lesson. Okay everyone, so imagine
I say: Is Kim okay? The boss yelled at her
in the meeting. So is she feeling upset?
Is she offended? Is she angry? How is she
feeling? But luckily Kim is really tough. So how
do we say that using the expression from
last week? I'll give you five seconds.
Are you ready? Okay go!
Alright and time is
up. If you said: Yeah she's okay. Kim has
thick skin. Then that's exactly right.
Well done everyone and thank you for
remembering the class. Okay, let's move on
to: Wrap One's Head Around (Something). Okay
now this is what I sometimes hear. Alright
I'm talking to my colleague Taro
and Taro, he's working very hard he's
reading lots of really thick books, and
he's doing lots of research. So I say:
Taro how's the research going? You're
doing lots of reading the reading looks
very difficult. Taro says: Yeah, it's tough.
I can't understand any of this
scientific writing. Right, yes scientific
papers, understanding science can be very
hard sometimes. So he's reading and he
just can't understand. Okay this is good.
I understand what Taro wants to say.
However, you might hear a native English
speaker say: Yeah it's tough. I can't wrap
my head around any of this scientific
writing. Okay, so you know the writing is
very difficult. So if you can wrap your
head around it. It means you
can ingest it. It means you can take it
in, it means you can understand what's
happening. But if you can't wrap your
head around it, it means it's not
entering your brain. Okay? It's not
fitting inside your head because it's
maybe too big or it's too difficult. Okay
so you can't wrap your head around
(something). That is too difficult.
Alright, okay so pronunciation: Wrap My Head
Around. Alright so please repeat after
me everyone: Yeah it's tough. I can't wrap my head around any of this scientific writing. Your turn!
Alright, okay good. And after my question, so
how's the research going?
Yeah it's tough. I can't
wrap my head around any of this
scientific writing. Okay? Alright so you
can use this in a variety of ways. You
know I can't wrap my head around this
grammar. I can't wrap my head around what
they want, you know. So there's a lot of
ways to use this, so please remember this
for our review next class. Okay everyone,
so our bonus question this week is
another way to say: Wait! It's too soon we
need a better plan. Okay so we covered
this in one of our previous Bizmates for
Beginners video lessons, so take a look
if you have the time. But I'll give you a
hint. Okay, I'll give you the first two
words to see if you can get it. It's: Hold
your something. Okay? Alright so
hopefully you know what the answer is.
Okay everyone, so that is it for us this
week. Thank you always for watching
everyone! Have a great week and I will
see you next time. Bye bye!
