  • Hey guys it's Shane from English Understood here.

  • Many people want to change their jobs but when it comes to the crunch, they don't do it.

  • Huh!? Comes to the crunch? What does this mean?

  • 'Crunch' normally means when you bite something, right? And it makes a *k* sound.

  • But 'comes to the crunch' is an idiom which means when it comes to a very important or difficult time and you have to make a decision.

  • So the example before: 'Many people want to change their jobs

  • but when it comes to the crunch, they don't do it.'

  • So when it comes to the important time to make a decision, do they change jobs?

  • No they don't.

  • Another example could be 'He wanted to break up with her, but when it came to the crunch, he didn't do it.'

  • So when it came to the important time to make a decision, did he break up with her?

  • No he didn't.

  • Try this idiom with your friends and if they don't know what it means, you can teach them. You can be the teacher.
