  • Hello and welcome to The English

  • We Speak with me, Feifei...

  • ...and me, Roy.

  • We may sound a little different - that's

  • because we are not able

  • to record in our normal studios

  • during the coronavirus outbreak.

  • Now Roy, stop using your phone!

  • We're trying to talk!

  • Ahhh I know what game you're playing!

  • You're probably too embarrassed

  • to tell people which

  • game it is - and in this programme

  • we have a word to use when

  • you want to be discreet,

  • or not let people know something.

  • Well I absolutely love this new app game -

  • it's the one where you play as

  • a dog that has to

  • catch bananas and throw them through

  • a hoop! Have you played it?

  • I know the one! It's called

  • 'Banana catching dog hoop challenge -

  • the game'. I am lowkey

  • addicted to playing it.

  • What? Why did you say 'lowkey'?

  • Ahh, I used that word because I don't

  • want everyone to know what

  • I'm doing. Surely you

  • have some self-respect and don't want

  • people to know that you're playing

  • a game for 8 year olds?

  • No, I don't care what people think

  • of me. I still watch cartoons,

  • play video games and

  • read comics.

  • Well, I'm sure there's something you want

  • to be discreet about. We'll find out right

  • after these examples.

  • I lowkey love watching romantic

  • comedies. I tell my girlfriend

  • I don't, but secretly

  • I do.

  • He is lowkey in love with Eric!

  • He talks about him all the time,

  • but he won't admit it.

  • I lowkey fell over walking to the shops.

  • I'm so embarrassed.

  • This is The English We Speak from BBC

  • Learning English and we're talking

  • about the word 'lowkey',

  • which is used when you don't want to

  • admit to something.

  • Most people know 'low-key' as

  • an adjective which describes

  • things - such as events - that

  • are quiet.

  • Like a low-key wedding - one without

  • many guests held in a modest venue.

  • In the use in this programme, lowkey is

  • used as an adverb to mean

  • 'secretly' or 'moderately'.

  • It's also spelt as one word. You know

  • the opposite to 'lowkey' is 'high key'?

  • When you're

  • proud about something and you

  • want everyone to know, you use

  • the term 'high key'.

  • Roy. I'm more subtle and discreet than you.

  • Well, I high key love playing video games

  • - even that app game.

  • Yes, I know it's meant

  • for young children, but it's

  • still really cool.

  • I lowkey enjoy them too, - I don't want

  • to tell anyone.

  • Well, I lowkey have about twenty

  • other games like 'Banana catching

  • dog hoop challenge - the

  • game' on my phone!

  • I knew it! I knew you'd want to be

  • low-key about something.

  • Do you want to play one?

  • Of course, I do! Bye, Roy.

  • Bye.
