Hi there! 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. And in this week everyone, we are going
to learn: Game-Changer. So to find out what this means, please
stay tuned. But first let's begin with a quick review of last week's lesson.
Alright everyone, so imagine I ask you: What does the team think about our new
idea? And unfortunately our idea didn't really impress them. So, how do you say
that using the expression from last week. I'll give you five seconds. Are you ready?
Alright, and time is up. If you said:
Unfortunately, the idea fell flat. Then that's exactly right. Well done, and thank
you for remembering last week's lesson. Okay everyone, let's move on to:
Game-Changer. Now, this is what I sometimes hear. Alright, so I'm talking to my good
friend and colleague Taro, and we are talking about our new marketing campaign.
We have this great idea and the marketing team came up with a really
interesting concept. So, I said: Taro, what do you think about
our new marketing approach? Isn't it great? I think it's really awesome! Taro
says: Yes, I think it will be a really positive impact. Okay, so maybe until now
nothing has really changed. It's kind of the same style or the same approach. So,
things are going to change and Taro thinks it will have a really
big impact. Now although this is okay, you might hear a native English speaker say this:
Yes, I think it will be a game- changer. Alright, so whenever something
is going to really have a big impact and change how things are currently, it's a
game-changer. Okay, so for example, a long time ago people were using horses.
Okay? For transportation. But when the car, the automobile came into the market, it
was a real game-changer. Okay, it changed everything. The Internet, of course, was a
huge game-changer. Alright, maybe in the future something like
virtual reality or augmented reality or artificial intelligence or machine
learning. Maybe these things will be game-changers. Okay, so anything that has a
really big impact and is going to change the current situation completely, is a
game-changer. Alright everyone? Okay, now pronunciation. So as you see it here,
so please repeat after me: I think it will be a game-changer.
Excellent! Alright, now after my question: So, what do you think about our
new marketing approach?
Alright good, so I think it will be a game-changer.
Okay everyone, so please remember this for next time. Okay, so our bonus question

is, well you are in luck. It's in one of our previous videos so I covered it

so everyone, so that is it for me this week. Thank you always for watching.
