Hello everyone Justin here and welcome
back to another Bizmates for Beginners

0:00:04.440,0:00:08.970
video lesson where every week we
introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:08.970,0:00:13.620
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week

0:00:13.620,0:00:20.400
everyone to: Wrap One's Head Around
(Something). Ok, so to find out what this

0:00:20.400,0:00:25.230
means and how to use it stay tuned. But
first let's do a quick review of last

0:00:25.230,0:00:32.160
week's lesson. Okay everyone, so imagine
I say: Is Kim okay? The boss yelled at her

0:00:32.160,0:00:38.579
in the meeting. So is she feeling upset?
Is she offended? Is she angry? How is she

0:00:38.579,0:00:42.960
feeling? But luckily Kim is really tough. So how

0:00:42.960,0:00:47.190
do we say that using the expression from
last week? I'll give you five seconds.

0:00:47.190,0:00:49.200
Are you ready? Okay go!

0:00:52.960,0:00:58.400
Alright and time is
up. If you said: Yeah she's okay. Kim has

0:00:58.410,0:01:03.539
thick skin. Then that's exactly right.
Well done everyone and thank you for

0:01:03.539,0:01:11.640
remembering the class. Okay, let's move on
to: Wrap One's Head Around (Something). Okay

0:01:11.640,0:01:16.830
now this is what I sometimes hear. Alright
I'm talking to my colleague Taro

0:01:16.830,0:01:22.950
and Taro, he's working very hard he's
reading lots of really thick books, and

0:01:22.950,0:01:28.619
he's doing lots of research. So I say:
Taro how's the research going? You're

0:01:28.619,0:01:36.000
doing lots of reading the reading looks
very difficult. Taro says: Yeah, it's tough.

0:01:36.000,0:01:43.590
I can't understand any of this
scientific writing. Right, yes scientific

0:01:43.590,0:01:49.829
papers, understanding science can be very
hard sometimes. So he's reading and he

0:01:49.829,0:01:54.689
just can't understand. Okay this is good.
I understand what Taro wants to say.

0:01:54.689,0:02:00.659
However, you might hear a native English
speaker say: Yeah it's tough. I can't wrap

0:02:00.659,0:02:08.160
my head around any of this scientific
writing. Okay, so you know the writing is

0:02:08.160,0:02:12.960
very difficult. So if you can wrap your
head around it. It means you

0:02:12.960,0:02:18.780
can ingest it. It means you can take it
in, it means you can understand what's

0:02:18.780,0:02:24.240
happening. But if you can't wrap your
head around it, it means it's not

0:02:24.240,0:02:29.850
entering your brain. Okay? It's not
fitting inside your head because it's

0:02:29.850,0:02:35.400
maybe too big or it's too difficult. Okay
so you can't wrap your head around

0:02:35.400,0:02:38.180
(something). That is too difficult.

0:02:38.180,0:02:45.000
Alright, okay so pronunciation: Wrap My Head
Around. Alright so please repeat after

0:02:45.000,0:02:52.180
me everyone: Yeah it's tough. I can't wrap my head around any of this scientific writing. Your turn!

0:02:55.460,0:02:59.900
Alright, okay good. And after my question, so
how's the research going?

0:03:04.640,0:03:07.400
Yeah it's tough. I can't
wrap my head around any of this

0:03:07.410,0:03:12.210
scientific writing. Okay? Alright so you
can use this in a variety of ways. You

0:03:12.210,0:03:17.250
know I can't wrap my head around this
grammar. I can't wrap my head around what

0:03:17.250,0:03:21.450
they want, you know. So there's a lot of
ways to use this, so please remember this

0:03:21.450,0:03:26.400
for our review next class. Okay everyone,
so our bonus question this week is

0:03:26.400,0:03:33.180
another way to say: Wait! It's too soon we
need a better plan. Okay so we covered

0:03:33.180,0:03:37.650
this in one of our previous Bizmates for
Beginners video lessons, so take a look

0:03:37.650,0:03:42.840
if you have the time. But I'll give you a
hint. Okay, I'll give you the first two

0:03:42.840,0:03:49.950
words to see if you can get it. It's: Hold
your something. Okay? Alright so

0:03:49.950,0:03:54.630
hopefully you know what the answer is.
Okay everyone, so that is it for us this

0:03:54.630,0:03:58.260
week. Thank you always for watching
everyone! Have a great week and I will

0:03:58.260,0:04:00.560
see you next time. Bye bye!
