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

0:00:05.100,0:00:09.480
video lesson where every week we
introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:09.480,0:00:14.340
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week

0:00:14.340,0:00:19.439
everyone we are going to learn the
phrase to: Run Something By You.

0:00:19.439,0:00:24.900
Alright, to run something by you.
Alright, so to find out what this means

0:00:24.900,0:00:28.590
please stay tuned.
But first let's begin with a quick

0:00:28.590,0:00:36.030
review of last week's class. Alright
everyone, so imagine I asked you: What do

0:00:36.030,0:00:42.180
you think about their latest offer? So
we're doing some negotiations but you

0:00:42.180,0:00:49.230
think I shouldn't take the deal unless
they improve their offer. So how do you

0:00:49.230,0:00:53.640
say that using the expression from last
week? I'll give you five seconds to think

0:00:53.640,0:00:57.320
about it. Are you ready?
Okay and go!

0:01:01.720,0:01:09.500
Alright and time is up. If you said: Yeah, it's not enough. They must sweeten the deal. Then that's exactly

0:01:09.510,0:01:14.340
right. Well done and thank you for
remembering last week's class. Okay

0:01:14.340,0:01:19.740
everyone, let's move on to: Run Something
By You. Alright, now this is what I

0:01:19.740,0:01:25.799
sometimes hear. Okay, I'm talking to my
good friend and colleague Taro. And Taro

0:01:25.799,0:01:32.070
wanted to talk to me but I was a little
bit busy. So I'm getting back to him now.

0:01:32.070,0:01:35.850
So I say: Taro, sorry did you want to talk
to me about something?

0:01:35.850,0:01:44.040
Taro says: Yes. I wanted to ask your
opinion what do you think about this

0:01:44.040,0:01:49.140
design? For example. Okay, that's good,
easy to understand. I see what Taro wants

0:01:49.140,0:01:54.899
me to do and he wants to ask for my
opinion alright. This is fine, however,

0:01:54.899,0:02:01.560
you might hear a native English speaker
say: Yes. I wanted to run something by you.

0:02:01.560,0:02:06.689
What do you think about something?
Something. Okay, so when you say, I want to

0:02:06.689,0:02:12.989
run something by you, it means can I ask
for your opinion or can I ask for your

0:02:12.989,0:02:16.860
thoughts about something. Now here's an extra tip

0:02:16.860,0:02:25.260
you can replace you can change something
into anything you like. So for example, if

0:02:25.260,0:02:31.890
you want to be more specific, you can say:
Yes. I want to run this design by you.

0:02:31.890,0:02:39.660
Meaning I wanted to get your opinion on
this design or can I run this proposal

0:02:39.660,0:02:45.599
by you. Meaning can I get your opinion on
this proposal. Okay so it's very useful

0:02:45.599,0:02:52.620
and you can use it in many situations.
Run something by you. Okay? Alright so

0:02:52.620,0:02:57.269
pronunciation as you see it here so
please repeat after me:

0:02:57.269,0:03:03.269
Yes. I wanted to run something by you.
Okay the rhythm of that is run something

0:03:03.269,0:03:05.640
by you alright so your turn go ahead.

0:03:09.620,0:03:13.540
Alright, good. Now after my question here:
So, did you want to talk to me?

0:03:17.700,0:03:22.460
Good so yeah, I wanted to run this English email
by you what do you think about the

0:03:22.470,0:03:27.780
grammar, for example. Okay? So please
remember this for next time. Okay our

0:03:27.780,0:03:34.260
bonus question this week is another way
to say: together think. Alright? We covered

0:03:34.260,0:03:39.030
a better way to say this in one of our
previous video so take a look if you

0:03:39.030,0:03:43.739
have the time. And of course I will leave

so that is it for us this week. Thank you

0:03:49.140,0:03:52.900
