Hello everyone! Happy new year and
welcome back to another Bizmates for

0:00:05.279,0:00:10.019
Beginners video lesson where every week
we introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:10.019,0:00:15.299
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. So I hope

0:00:15.299,0:00:22.380
you all had a fantastic New Year's
holiday and you are ready to start 2020!

0:00:22.380,0:00:26.580
Alright, this is the year that you are
going to do great things right and you

0:00:26.580,0:00:32.460
hopefully are going to take your English
to the next level. Right? Okay so let's

0:00:32.460,0:00:40.260
begin our very first lesson of this year
with our phrase which is to: Hit The

0:00:40.260,0:00:46.320
Ground Running. Alright, so to hit the
ground running. Let's find out what it

0:00:46.320,0:00:51.660
means but first do you remember last was
it last week's last last week's episode.

0:00:51.660,0:00:56.820
Okay? It's right around Christmas time. I
hope so because here it comes the review.

0:00:56.820,0:01:04.500
Alright, so okay imagine I asked you:
How did Ai react when you told her she

0:01:04.500,0:01:10.439
got the promotion? Okay, so of course
she's very very happy so how do you say

0:01:10.439,0:01:14.610
that using the expression from our last
video? I'll give you five seconds. Are you

0:01:14.610,0:01:16.660
ready? Okay go!

0:01:20.260,0:01:26.120
Alright and time is up.
If you said: Well, she lit up like a Christmas tree.

0:01:26.120,0:01:28.100
Then, that's exactly right. Well done and

0:01:28.200,0:01:34.100
thank you for remembering the expression.
Okay everyone, let's move on to: Hit The

0:01:34.110,0:01:36.840
Ground Running. Now this is what I
sometimes hear.

0:01:36.840,0:01:42.360
Alright, so it's a new year okay, I see my
good friend and colleague Taro for the

0:01:42.360,0:01:48.659
first time this year. I say Taro
so it's 2020 new year, new start.

0:01:48.659,0:01:56.899
So, are you ready to start a new year?
Taro says: Yes! I am ready to start

0:01:56.899,0:02:04.140
powerfully. That's good okay so Taro is
motivated, alright, he's excited. Okay? To

0:02:04.140,0:02:10.110
start the year strong. Now this is okay,
but it's a little bit unnatural. So you

0:02:10.110,0:02:14.200
might hear a native English speaker say:
Yes! I'm ready

0:02:14.200,0:02:20.950
to hit the ground running. Okay? So it
means to start something, it can be

0:02:20.950,0:02:26.500
anything. Start a new year, start a new
project, maybe start going to the gym,

0:02:26.500,0:02:32.620
whatever you want. Okay? But you start
strong you start with energy you start

0:02:32.620,0:02:39.099
with commitment okay it's a strong
powerful start so it's to hit the ground

0:02:39.099,0:02:44.170
running. Okay? So very useful and
hopefully all of you can hit the ground

0:02:44.170,0:02:48.430
running this year whether it's in your
business or of course with your English

0:02:48.430,0:02:52.720
studies. Okay? Alright, now pronunciation
please repeat after me:

0:02:52.740,0:02:57.620
Hit, alright so we drop the 't,' hit the
ground running. Your turn!

0:03:00.720,0:03:05.860
Good good. Alright, now after my question:
So happy New Year! Are you ready to start

0:03:05.860,0:03:12.880
the new year? Yes that's right. Now I'm
ready to hit the ground running. Okay, so

0:03:12.880,0:03:18.519
please remember this for next time. Okay,
our bonus question is another way to say:

0:03:18.519,0:03:24.340
We need to improve our strategy. Alright,
so if you know the answer, you can feel

0:03:24.340,0:03:28.269
free to leave it in the comments. If you
don't know the answer, we covered it in

0:03:28.269,0:03:34.840
one of our previous videos so see if you
can find it. Alright? Okay everyone, so

0:03:34.840,0:03:39.310
that is it for us. Thank you very much
