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

0:00:04.529,0:00:08.670
video lesson where every week we
introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:08.670,0:00:13.320
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week

0:00:13.320,0:00:19.350
everyone, we are going to learn to: Light
Up Like A Christmas Tree. So it is

0:00:19.350,0:00:24.269
Christmas week, so maybe I thought this
expression would be appropriate for the

0:00:24.269,0:00:27.539
season. So let's find out what this means
and how to use it.

0:00:27.539,0:00:33.450
Ok everyone, so let's do a quick review
of course of last week's lesson first. So

0:00:33.450,0:00:40.860
imagine I say: The new staff is late
again. Alright, now this is kind of a

0:00:40.860,0:00:46.530
dangerous situation for this person. So
how do you say that using the expression

0:00:46.530,0:00:49.620
from last week? I'll give you five
seconds to think about it. Are you ready?

0:00:49.620,0:00:52.180
Okay and go!

0:00:56.060,0:00:59.960
Alright and time is up. If you said:

0:00:59.960,0:01:05.640
Again?! He's walking on thin ice. Then that's
exactly right. Well done and thank you

0:01:05.640,0:01:11.220
for remembering last week's class. Ok
everyone, let's move on to: To Light Up

0:01:11.220,0:01:17.640
Like A Christmas Tree. Now this is what I
sometimes hear. Okay, so I'm talking to my

0:01:17.640,0:01:26.100
good friend and colleague Taro and I
asked: Taro, how did I react when you told

0:01:26.100,0:01:32.400
her she got the promotion? Okay, so this
is of course very good news, very happy

0:01:32.400,0:01:39.020
news for I. So of course, she became very
happy. That's great she worked very hard,

0:01:39.020,0:01:45.060
she has a lot of experience, so she got
the promotion. She's very happy now. This

0:01:45.060,0:01:51.329
is great. However, if Taro wanted to use a
different expression, that's maybe more

0:01:51.329,0:01:55.140
appropriate for this season and of
course gives a little bit more

0:01:55.140,0:02:00.689
excitement to his English, he can say: She
lit up like a Christmas tree.

0:02:00.689,0:02:05.009
Alright, so whenever someone is very
happy, you see their eyes light up their

0:02:05.009,0:02:10.979
expression changes and you see this
light and energy that comes from them

0:02:10.979,0:02:17.080
when they're very happy. Just like a
mystery. Okay? So, to light up like a

0:02:17.080,0:02:21.280
Christmas tree.
So for example, she lit up like a

0:02:21.280,0:02:29.200
Christmas tree when she discovered she
got a big bonus this year, or he lit up

0:02:29.200,0:02:37.000
like a Christmas tree when his children
came to greet him at the door. Okay? For

0:02:37.000,0:02:41.080
example, something like this.
Alright, so pronunciation here, so please

0:02:41.080,0:02:46.840
repeat after me everyone: Lit up like a
Christmas tree. So pay attention to the

0:02:46.840,0:02:52.960
rhythm. Lit up like a Christmas tree. So
dead uh that dead dead it up. Alright? She

0:02:52.960,0:02:54.960
lit up like a Christmas tree. Your turn!

0:02:56.660,0:03:02.400
Alright, good okay now after my question:
So how did I react when you told her she

0:03:02.400,0:03:04.220
got the promotion?

0:03:06.640,0:03:08.780
Right, she lit up like a Christmas tree. Okay?

0:03:08.780,0:03:13.090
Great, so please remember this for next
time. Alright, our bonus question is

0:03:13.090,0:03:19.360
another way to say: I believe your idea.
So someone is trying to convince you of

0:03:19.360,0:03:24.160
something, if you believe them
what you say. Hopefully you remember but

0:03:24.160,0:03:28.680
if you don't we covered it in one of our
previous lessons so take a look now.

0:03:28.680,0:03:33.820
Alright everyone so that is it for us
this week. Thank you always for watching

0:03:33.820,0:03:37.989
everyone. I hope you're having a great
winter so far and you had a great

0:03:37.989,0:03:43.650
Christmas! Okay and I'm looking forward
to seeing you next time. Bye bye!
