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

0:00:04.110,0:00:09.000
video lesson where every week we
introduce new idiom, phrase, or expression

0:00:09.000,0:00:13.950
that you can use in your daily business
conversation. This week everyone, we are

0:00:13.950,0:00:19.650
going to learn what: A Rundown means.
Alright, so to find out what this means,

0:00:19.650,0:00:25.050
that stay tuned. But first, I hope you
remember last week's class because we're

0:00:25.050,0:00:30.359
going to do a quick review. Alright
everyone, so imagine I asked you: What

0:00:30.359,0:00:36.300
kind of management style do you like?
Okay? So you don't like the style that's

0:00:36.300,0:00:41.280
too controlling. Alright? So what do you
say using the expression from last week?

0:00:41.280,0:00:46.260
I'll give you five seconds to think
about it. Are you ready? Okay and go!

0:00:49.640,0:00:57.020
Alright three two one and time is up. If
you said: I like a hands-off approach.

0:00:57.030,0:01:01.199
Then that's exactly right.
Well done and thank you for remembering

0:01:01.199,0:01:07.860
last week's class. Okay everyone, let's
find out what: A Rundown means. Now this

0:01:07.860,0:01:15.270
is what I sometimes hear. Okay, so I see
my colleague Taro and I say: Taro, you

0:01:15.270,0:01:19.860
weren't at the kickoff meeting earlier!
So maybe we're starting a new project

0:01:19.860,0:01:26.549
and we had a meeting but he was unable
to attend. Probably because he was very

0:01:26.549,0:01:32.820
busy. So Taro says: Yeah, I'm sorry! Can you
give me a summary? Alright, so what are

0:01:32.820,0:01:37.740
the key points you discussed, what kind
of decisions did you guys make. Alright,

0:01:37.740,0:01:43.350
so give me a summary, yes this is fine, no
problem. I understand what you want but

0:01:43.350,0:01:48.780
you might hear a native English speaker
say: Sorry! Can you give me a rundown? Okay

0:01:48.780,0:01:53.880
so a rundown is simply a summary. Alright? So what are the key points, what

0:01:53.880,0:01:58.890
are the main things that were discussed,
and decided. So it's a rundown. So it

0:01:58.890,0:02:05.060
could be a rundown of the meeting, or a
rundown of the week, or a rundown of your

0:02:05.060,0:02:11.790
accomplishments. Anything, okay? So a
rundown is a summary of something. Okay?

0:02:11.790,0:02:16.830
Alright, so pronunciation it's a rundown.
A rundown. Alright, so it's all

0:02:16.830,0:02:22.560
nicely joined and smoothly connected
here. So please repeat after me: Can you

0:02:22.560,0:02:26.240
give me a rundown? A rundown. Okay?
Your turn!

0:02:28.760,0:02:32.640
Good. Now after my question.
So you weren't at the kickoff meeting

0:02:32.640,0:02:39.540
earlier! So can you say: Sure, Can you give
me a rundown? Alright, so please

0:02:39.540,0:02:43.920
remember this for next time. Okay
everyone, so our bonus question this week

0:02:43.920,0:02:48.060
is another way to say: Let's take a break. Okay?

0:02:48.060,0:02:53.760
So maybe a quick break, a short break,
maybe around five minutes. Okay so that's

0:02:53.760,0:02:57.570
a hint for you. So if you know a better
way of saying this, please leave it in

0:02:57.570,0:03:01.980
the comments below. If you don't know but
you're curious you can find it in one of

0:03:01.980,0:03:07.290
our previous videos. Okay everyone so
that is it for us this week. Thank you

0:03:07.290,0:03:11.500
always for watching! Have a great week
and I'll see you next time. Bye bye!
