  • Hello everyone!

  • 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.

  • Today's idiom is: rule out.

  • Rule out.

  • Can you imagine what this idiom might mean?

  • Mmm, this is a difficult one.

  • So, do you know the definition of 'rule'?

  • It means something you can or can't do, you make a rule.

  • So, for example, let's picture a circle and this circle is your rule.

  • In the circle, you can do it and out of the circle, you can't do it.

  • For example, maybe the rule is: at school, you can't chew gum.

  • So, chew gum is out of the circle. It's ruled out, okay?

  • But, maybe you can drink water.

  • So, the rule is: you can drink water. It's in the circle, okay?

  • So, let's listen to 2 examples of 'ruled out'.

  • The first one:

  • Are you still going to China, Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia, and Canada on your 2 week vacation?

  • No, we ruled out Canada, because that was too far and we don’t have the time to go there.

  • They ruled out Canada.

  • Ruled out. It's not an option.

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

  • How do you feel about eating only healthy food from now on?

  • I guess that rules out going to McDonald's then!

  • Oops!

  • Okay, so ruled out. They can't go to McDonald's.

  • Did you understand?

  • So, 'rule out' means eliminate as an option, yeah. It's no longer in consideration.

  • So, for example, well, I'm going on a diet, so that rules out eating cake tonight. Oh no!

  • Okay, so let's try using 'rule out' next time you eliminate an option.

  • Okay, so let's try using this some time soon.

  • I'll see you again next time! Good-bye!
