  • 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.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Today's idiom is: bottom line.

  • Bottom line.

  • Alright, so let's picture many lines and on each line is going to be a sentence.

  • Okay, and we'll start from the top.

  • And we'll say on the top line is, 'I'm hungry,'

  • and the next line is, 'I'm tired,'

  • and 'I'm sick,'

  • and on the bottom line, it's a big line and it says, 'I'm not well.'

  • Alright, so 'I'm tired', 'I'm hungry', 'I'm sick' and on the bottom line, 'I'm not well'.

  • Alright, so let's imagine this picture of the lines and the bottom line and try to think of what the idiom 'bottom line' might mean.

  • Let's listen to some examples.

  • What are you saying?

  • Well, the bottom line is that I don’t think I can pass the English exam in only one month, even if I study every day.

  • Alright, so his bottom line is that he can't pass the English exam.

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

  • Did you understand what the bottom line to his speech was?

  • No, he wasn’t speaking his mind so I don’t know what he wanted to say.

  • Alright, so he listened to the speech, but he couldn't understand the bottom line.

  • Okay, so could you understand what bottom line means?

  • Well, it means the main thing or the point, the focus of the conversation or the main idea.

  • Okay, so if you wanna talk about a conversation or a topic and you say many things, okay,

  • but there's maybe one main, most important thing you want the person to understand and that is your bottom line.

  • Okay, so in the example I gave you in the beginning, yeah,

  • 'I'm hungry', 'I'm tired', 'I'm sick', the bottom line is, 'I'm not well', right?

  • So, let's try using 'bottom line' next time you want to kind of point out the most important thing that you want to say.

  • Alright, and I'll see you again next time!
