We use this phrase to tell someone that they are not good at something and they should stop doing it. 'I'm in love with the shape of you.' 'Dude, don't give up the day job, alright?' 'Yeah' Number two so far so good. This is a phrase we use to show that we are happy with the development or progress of something. 'Hey dude, how's your new job going?' 'Yeah, so far so good. Yeah my boss is pretty nice. Yeah I'm enjoying it.' Number three at the end of the day. This is a phrase that replaces ultimately or when all things have been considered. 'Look at the end of the day if you really want to break up with her then you should just tell her. Ok, just be honest.' Number four, speak of the devil. Now we use this when we have been talking about someone and then they suddenly appear unexpectedly 'Ah Tom can be such a **** sometimes' 'Oh speak of the devil' 'Oh, hey Tom' 'Oh hey guys, what are you talking about?' Number five that ship has sailed. We use this phrase to say that it's too late to do something. You can't do it anymore, it's too late. 'Dude don't you think it's about time you changed your career, I mean you haven't been happy for ages.' 'Sadly that ship has sailed. I'm getting too old man.' How are we doing for time? Ok, we're ok. Number six, it's not rocket science. We use this when we want to say that something isn't that difficult to do. 'Oh come on we can put this IKEA bed together, it's not rocket science.' Number seven Ignorance is bliss. We use this phrase when we want to say that it's probably better not to know. 'Alright would you want to know if your partner was cheating on you?' 'No definitely not, ignorance is bliss.' Number eight, better late than never. We use this phrase to say that it's probably better that something eventually happens after the time it was supposed to rather than it not happening at all. 'Hey, I'm here for the party....better late than never?' Number nine, there are plenty more fish in the sea. Now we use this phrase when someone's relationship has ended to make them feel better, to say that there are other potential partners out there, there are plenty more fish in the sea. 'She's left me, she's gone.' 'Oh dude there's plenty more fish in the sea, yeah.' And the last one it's not over until the fat lady sings. It means that there's always a chance even until the end there is always hope, there is always a possibility that what you want to happen can happen. 'It's alright, we might be three nil down with five minutes to go but it's not over until the fat lady sings.' Alright we did it. Ten English expressions in two minutes. Unbelievable! Well done guys.
