Hello everyone! Happy new year 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. So I hope
you all had a fantastic New Year's
holiday and you are ready to start 2020!
Alright, this is the year that you are
going to do great things right and you
hopefully are going to take your English
to the next level. Right? Okay so let's
begin our very first lesson of this year
with our phrase which is to: Hit The
Ground Running. Alright, so to hit the
ground running. Let's find out what it
means but first do you remember last was
it last week's last last week's episode.
Okay? It's right around Christmas time. I
hope so because here it comes the review.
Alright, so okay imagine I asked you:
How did Ai react when you told her she
got the promotion? Okay, so of course
she's very very happy so how do you say
that using the expression from our last
video? I'll give you five seconds. Are you
ready? Okay go!
Alright and time is up.

thank you for remembering the expression.
Okay everyone, let's move on to: Hit The
Ground Running. Now this is what I
Alright, so it's a new year okay, I see my
good friend and colleague Taro for the
first time this year. I say Taro
so it's 2020 new year, new start.
So, are you ready to start a new year?
Taro says: Yes! I am ready to start
powerfully. That's good okay so Taro is
motivated, alright, he's excited. Okay? To
start the year strong. Now this is okay,
but it's a little bit unnatural. So you
might hear a native English speaker say:
Yes! I'm ready
to hit the ground running. Okay? So it
means to start something, it can be
anything. Start a new year, start a new
project, maybe start going to the gym,
whatever you want. Okay? But you start
strong you start with energy you start
with commitment okay it's a strong
powerful start so it's to hit the ground
running. Okay? So very useful and
hopefully all of you can hit the ground
running this year whether it's in your
business or of course with your English
studies. Okay? Alright, now pronunciation
please repeat after me:
Hit, alright so we drop the 't,' hit the
ground running. Your turn!
Good good. Alright, now after my question:
So happy New Year! Are you ready to start
the new year? Yes that's right. Now I'm
ready to hit the ground running. Okay, so
please remember this for next time. Okay,
our bonus question is another way to say:
We need to improve our strategy. Alright,
