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

0:00:05.730,0:00:09.750
video lesson where every week we
introduced a new idiom, phrase, or

0:00:09.750,0:00:14.219
expression that you can use in your
daily business conversation. This week

0:00:14.219,0:00:21.150
everyone, let's learn to: Think Outside
The Box. Alright, so to find out what

0:00:21.150,0:00:26.180
this means stay tuned. But first, let's do
a quick review of last week's class.

0:00:26.180,0:00:33.450
Alright everyone, so imagine I ask you:
How can we reduce costs this year?

0:00:33.450,0:00:39.059
Alright, so you have a good idea. Alright,
so what do you say using the expression

0:00:39.060,0:00:44.040
from last week? I'll give you five seconds to
think about it. Are you ready? Okay and go!

0:00:48.820,0:00:54.320
Alright and time is up. If
you said: Well, just a thought, but why

0:00:54.329,0:00:58.829
don't we create a new system or
something like that. Then that's exactly

0:00:58.829,0:01:03.120
right. But the key point is just a
thought, so I hope you remembered it.

0:01:03.120,0:01:09.119
Alright, so let's move on to this week's
expression which is to: Think Outside The

0:01:09.119,0:01:12.659
Box. Alright, now this is what I
sometimes hear.

0:01:12.659,0:01:18.479
Okay so again I'm talking to my good
friend and colleague Taro I say: Taro, we

0:01:18.479,0:01:25.950
have a big problem we have a huge issue
and I've been trying to think of a

0:01:25.950,0:01:32.820
solution to this problem for a long time.
But I can't think of a good idea. So he

0:01:32.820,0:01:38.820
says: Well, we have to maybe think
differently. Right, if you think the same

0:01:38.820,0:01:43.979
way maybe you are going to have the same
results and you can't think of a good

0:01:43.979,0:01:47.250
idea. So we have to think differently. Yes
this is fine, this is great.

0:01:47.250,0:01:51.899
But you might hear a native English
speakers say: Well we have to think

0:01:51.899,0:01:59.820
outside the box. Okay, so here's the box
and if we only think here it's very

0:01:59.820,0:02:05.070
limited. So we need to think from a
different perspective, we need to think

0:02:05.070,0:02:11.940
from a different angle, we need to think
outside the box. Okay, so it's a very good

0:02:11.940,0:02:16.530
expression, very useful.
Alright, so pronunciation please repeat

0:02:16.530,0:02:21.390
after me everyone, think outside the box.
Okay, so pay attention to the rhythm.

0:02:21.390,0:02:24.900
Think outside the box. Okay?
Dada Dada Dada.

0:02:24.900,0:02:28.200
Alright, so please repeat: We have to
think outside the box. Your turn!

0:02:30.600,0:02:34.840
Alright, very good. Now after my question. So,
how can we solve this problem?

0:02:37.740,0:02:42.060
Very good. Yeah, we got to think outside the box.
Take a different approach. Okay, so please

0:02:42.060,0:02:47.040
remember this for next time. Okay our
bonus question is another way to say:

0:02:47.040,0:02:52.890
I wanted to ask your opinion. Alright? So
if you know a better way of saying this

0:02:52.890,0:02:57.750
please leave it in the comments below. If
not, try to think about it or check out

0:02:57.750,0:03:02.120
one of our previous videos where we
covered a better way of saying this. Okay?

0:03:02.120,0:03:06.540
Alright everyone, so that is it for me
this week. Thank you always for watching!

0:03:06.540,0:03:09.240
Take care everyone and I'll see you next time.

0:03:09.240,0:03:09.980
