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, we are going to learn to: Light
Up Like A Christmas Tree. So it is
Christmas week, so maybe I thought this
expression would be appropriate for the
season. So let's find out what this means
and how to use it.
Ok everyone, so let's do a quick review
of course of last week's lesson first. So
imagine I say: The new staff is late
again. Alright, now this is kind of a
dangerous situation for this person. So
how do you say that using the expression
from last week? I'll give you five
seconds to think about it. Are you ready?
Okay and go!
Alright and time is up. If you said:
Again?! He's walking on thin ice. Then that's
exactly right. Well done and thank you
for remembering last week's class. Ok
everyone, let's move on to: To Light Up
Like A Christmas Tree. Now this is what I
sometimes hear. Okay, so I'm talking to my
good friend and colleague Taro and I
asked: Taro, how did I react when you told
her she got the promotion? Okay, so this
is of course very good news, very happy
news for I. So of course, she became very
happy. That's great she worked very hard,
she has a lot of experience, so she got
the promotion. She's very happy now. This
is great. However, if Taro wanted to use a
different expression, that's maybe more
appropriate for this season and of
course gives a little bit more
excitement to his English, he can say: She
lit up like a Christmas tree.
Alright, so whenever someone is very
happy, you see their eyes light up their
expression changes and you see this
light and energy that comes from them
when they're very happy. Just like a
mystery. Okay? So, to light up like a
So for example, she lit up like a
Christmas tree when she discovered she
got a big bonus this year, or he lit up
like a Christmas tree when his children
came to greet him at the door. Okay? For
example, something like this.
Alright, so pronunciation here, so please
repeat after me everyone: Lit up like a
Christmas tree. So pay attention to the
rhythm. Lit up like a Christmas tree. So
dead uh that dead dead it up. Alright? She
lit up like a Christmas tree. Your turn!
Alright, good okay now after my question:
So how did I react when you told her she
got the promotion?
Right, she lit up like a Christmas tree. Okay?
Great, so please remember this for next
time. Alright, our bonus question is
another way to say: I believe your idea.
So someone is trying to convince you of
something, if you believe them
what you say. Hopefully you remember but
if you don't we covered it in one of our
previous lessons so take a look now.
Alright everyone so that is it for us
this week. Thank you always for watching
everyone. I hope you're having a great
winter so far and you had a great
Christmas! Okay and I'm looking forward
to seeing you next time. Bye bye!
