Hello everyone! Justin here and 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. This week
everyone, let's learn to: Think Outside
The Box. Alright, so to find out what
this means stay tuned. But first, let's do
a quick review of last week's class.
Alright everyone, so imagine I ask you:
How can we reduce costs this year?
Alright, so you have a good idea. Alright,
so what do you say using the expression
from last week? I'll give you five seconds to
think about it. Are you ready? Okay and go!
Alright and time is up. If
you said: Well, just a thought, but why
don't we create a new system or
something like that. Then that's exactly
right. But the key point is just a
thought, so I hope you remembered it.
Alright, so let's move on to this week's

Okay so again I'm talking to my good
friend and colleague Taro I say: Taro, we
have a big problem we have a huge issue
and I've been trying to think of a
solution to this problem for a long time.
But I can't think of a good idea. So he
says: Well, we have to maybe think
differently. Right, if you think the same
way maybe you are going to have the same
results and you can't think of a good
idea. So we have to think differently. Yes
this is fine, this is great.
But you might hear a native English
speakers say: Well we have to think
outside the box. Okay, so here's the box
and if we only think here it's very
limited. So we need to think from a
different perspective, we need to think
from a different angle, we need to think
outside the box. Okay, so it's a very good
expression, very useful.
Alright, so pronunciation please repeat
after me everyone, think outside the box.
Okay, so pay attention to the rhythm.
Think outside the box. Okay?
Dada Dada Dada.
Alright, so please repeat: We have to
think outside the box. Your turn!
Alright, very good. Now after my question. So,
how can we solve this problem?
Very good. Yeah, we got to think outside the box.
Take a different approach. Okay, so please
remember this for next time. Okay our
bonus question is another way to say:
I wanted to ask your opinion. Alright? So
if you know a better way of saying this
please leave it in the comments below. If
not, try to think about it or check out
one of our previous videos where we
covered a better way of saying this. Okay?
Alright everyone, so that is it for me
this week. Thank you always for watching!
