Hello, everyone, Justin here. Welcome to another Bizmates For Beginners video lesson,

0:00:05.920,0:00:13.200
where every week, we introduce a new idiom, phrase, or expression that you can use in your daily business
conversation.

0:00:13.200,0:00:18.180
This week everyone, "To Go Off Without a Hitch."

0:00:18.180,0:00:24.020
Okay, it's a bit of a long expression, but it's useful, so let's cover this in our class today.

0:00:24.020,0:00:27.420
But do you remember last week's expression?

0:00:27.420,0:00:30.920
I hope so because we are going to do a quick review.

0:00:30.920,0:00:38.620
Imagine I say "The deadline is next week!"
So, we need to work harder to meet the deadline.

0:00:38.620,0:00:47.820
How do you say that using the expression from last week? You've got five seconds. Are you ready? Go!

0:00:48.580,0:00:50.940
And time is up!

0:00:50.940,0:00:56.660
If you said "we need to shift into high gear", then that's exactly right.

0:00:56.660,0:01:00.160
Well done and thank you for remembering the expression.

0:01:00.500,0:01:07.140
Okay, let's move on to "To go off without a hitch."
Now, this is what I sometimes hear:

0:01:07.720,0:01:12.940
Okay. So, Taro, my colleague, is trying something new.

0:01:12.940,0:01:20.720
He is doing something he has never done before.
He is going to try and host his first webinar.

0:01:20.720,0:01:27.540
Okay? Not seminar - webinar, so online seminar.
Okay. So, I say: "Taro, how did the webinar go?"

0:01:27.540,0:01:32.940
It's your first time; it's new technology.
Hopefully, everything went okay.

0:01:32.940,0:01:38.540
He says: "It went well."
All right. Good, well I'm happy to hear that.

0:01:38.540,0:01:44.380
So, maybe that means no technical problems, everything was smooth, this is fine, it went well.

0:01:44.380,0:01:49.940
But it's a little bit, yeah, a little bit too simple. You know we want him to sound a little bit more happy,

0:01:49.940,0:01:52.940
a little bit more positive. So, he can say,

0:01:52.940,0:02:01.220
that's right: "It went off without a hitch."
Okay. It went fine, no problems, it went as expected,

0:02:01.220,0:02:07.100
it went off without a hitch, it was perfect.
Okay. So, how was the presentation?

0:02:07.100,0:02:09.120
Yeah, it went off without a hitch.

0:02:09.120,0:02:12.360
How was the proposal?
It went off without a hitch.

0:02:12.360,0:02:17.660
Okay? All right. So, let's see here.
How do we say this smoothly?

0:02:17.660,0:02:24.080
Well, I think it'd be best to separate this into two parts. So, it went off without a hitch.

0:02:24.080,0:02:29.360
Okay? So, this might be easiest. So, please repeat after me: "It went off without a hitch."

0:02:29.460,0:02:29.960
Your turn.

0:02:32.400,0:02:38.000
Yeah, all right. Now, after my question:
"So, how did the webinar go?"

0:02:38.080,0:02:44.540
Yeah, it went off without a hitch. All right. Good. All right, so please remember this for our review next week.

0:02:44.800,0:02:48.340
Okay, the bonus question today is another way to say:

0:02:48.420,0:02:56.880
"It will be successful resolved."
Okay, so if you have an idea, you can feel free to leave it in the comments below.

0:02:56.880,0:03:01.180
I'll give you a hint. It has something to do with a bag.

0:03:02.120,0:03:05.880
All right, so hopefully, that will give you some idea. Okay. All right.

0:03:05.880,0:03:11.940
So think about this, and hopefully, you
know the answer. All right, everyone, so that is it for us this week.

0:03:11.940,0:03:14.780
Thank you always for watching. Have a great week, everyone.

0:03:14.780,0:03:18.100
Take care, and we'll see you next time. Bye-bye.
