Justin: Now that you’ve finished the big project, what’s next?
You: I think I need some R&R!
week's Bizmates for Beginners video
lesson. Today everyone we are going to
take a look at the expression R&R. So
let's find out what it means and how to
use it in our lesson this week everyone,
but first as always let's do a quick
review of last week's lesson. Okay
everyone, so imagine I say:
How are things going with Ken's project?
And things are improving,
things are getting better. So
what do you say? Do you remember the
expression from last week? I'll give you
five seconds, OK everyone you ready?
Alright and time is up, if
you said "yes he's working hard, so it's
looking up" then that's exactly right
good job and thank you for remembering
last week's class.
OK everyone moving on to "R&R" this
is what I sometimes hear, alright so Taro
and Ken, they finished their project so I
say: Now that you've finished the big
project, what's next?
What are you going to do? And Taro, he
says: Yeah, I think I need some relaxation
time. Yes, I understand you worked really
hard, Ken worked really hard as well so you
definitely need time to relax. But,
although this expression is fine, we can
use something a little bit more
interesting and that is... yes exactly
right. We can say: I think I need some R&R. So "R&R" stands for rest and
So after you work really hard to finish
a task or if you're really tired, you
need a lot of rest and you need a lot of
relaxation. So you need some R&R, OK everyone?
Alright, now pronunciation is just as
you see it written here R and R, but when
you say it very quickly the end becomes
more like an N sound so it's R an' R. R an' R, okay?
So please repeat after me
R&R. You turn.
Alright very good. Yes R&R. OK now after my question:
So now that you've finished the big project, what's next?
Alright very good, yes that's
right you definitely deserve some rest
and relaxation; you definitely deserve
some R&R. OK so moving on to our bonus
question this week, which is another way
to say: "it is bad luck." If you know what
the answer is leave it in the comments
below everyone, if you want to know what
the answer is you can find it in one of
our previous Bizmates for Beginners
video lessons. OK everyone, so that is
it for me this week, thank you so much
for watching. As always, have a great
weekend, get some good R&R and I'll see
you next time. Thank you.
