  • Welcome to Idiom 100, where we learn 100 commonly used idioms by native English speakers.

  • All of the explanations are in English, so it might be challenging for you,

  • but just try to imagine the meanings in your head and study hard and soon you'll be able to use these idioms in your conversations.

  • Is everyone ready? Let's begin.

  • Hello again!

  • Today's idiom is: have second thoughts.

  • Have second thoughts.

  • Let's try to think about the meaning of this idiom.

  • Alright, so let's imagine you have one thought, okay?

  • Your thought is, 'I want to go skydiving.'

  • Okay, so here's thought 1, 'Let's go skydiving.'

  • And you go to the plane and you go up in the air and then, you have a second thought:

  • 'Nooo! Don't do it!', okay?

  • It's your second thought.

  • What might this mean?

  • Let's listen to some examples, okay?

  • The first example:

  • I’m having second thoughts about going to yoga class.

  • Why, it is good exercise!

  • Yes, but it’s from 6 in the morning.

  • Okay, so maybe they wanted to go to yoga class, but it's very early, so maybe they're not sure anymore.

  • Okay, let's listen to the second example.

  • Are you still going grocery shopping this afternoon?

  • Well, I’m having second thoughts about going. It looks like it's gonna rain, so I think I’ll just use leftovers.

  • Okay, so she planned to go to the grocery store, was the first plan, first thought.

  • And second thought is, 'Ah, it's raining. I'll use food that I cooked yesterday, leftovers.'

  • Okay, so having second thoughts means maybe you're doubting, you're doubting the plan or you're doubting the first idea.

  • So, you're not sure if you want to continue with your first thought, you think you might be changing your mind, okay?

  • So, next time you have a second thought and you're not sure about something, let's try using this idiom.

  • Yeah, I hope you're not having second thoughts about studying English.

  • Please stick to it!

  • Alright, that's all for today! See you next time!
