- Hello everyone and welcome back to English with Lucy.
Today I'm going to teach you loads
of really, really important business idioms
but you'll be able to use them both at home
and in a work environment.
Quickly before I get started
I would just like to thank the sponsor of today's video.
It is Lingoda.
If you haven't heard me mention Lingoda before,
it's an online language academy
which offers 24/7 classes with qualified native teachers.
You can study English, French, Spanish or German
in a perfect mix of both private and group classes.
Now, a lot of you have been telling me
that you're learning English to advance in the workplace
or to get a new job.
If this is the case for you,
then their newly launched Business English course
will be perfect for you.
If business English isn't for you
or you're at a slightly lower level,
then their standard regular English course
will be perfect too.
You pay on a monthly subscription basis
and there are loads of different options
to suit your needs.
If you're not sure, you can get a free one-hour trial class.
Then you will definitely know if their courses
are for you.

Right, let's get on with the lesson.
Number one.
To learn the ropes.
To learn the ropes.
To learn the ropes is to learn the basics
of how something is done.
For example, you'll be fine once you learn the ropes.
You'll be fine once you learn how everything's done here.
It's something you might say to a new employee.
Number two.
In a nutshell.
In a nutshell.
In a nutshell means in summary
or in as few words as possible.
For example, in a nutshell,
the conference was about synergy.
Number three, the big picture.
The big picture.
The big picture means the overall view of something
or the situation as a whole.
For example, if you look at the big picture,
the campaign actually works quite well.
I'm saying the big picture
because I'm avoiding minor details,
maybe there were a few problems
but in general, it's all right.
Number four, to go back to the drawing board.
To go back to the drawing board.
This means to start over
or to go back to the first stage of a project or process.
For example, the boss hates it.
We have to go back to the drawing board.
Number five.
Very similar to number four, to go back to square one.
Again, this means to start over
or to go back to the first stage of a process or project.
For example, I didn't save my document,
so now I'm back to square one.
Number six, to go the extra mile.
This is what you should be doing with your English studies.
To go the extra mile.
This means to give more effort
or to do more than is expected of you.
For example, Sharon got promoted
because she always goes the extra mile
in preparation for meetings.
Number seven, to call it a day.
To call it a day.
This means to stop working on something.
For example, I can't look at another spreadsheet,
so I'm going to call it a day.
Number eight, a long shot, a long shot.
A long shot is something
that has a very small chance of happening or succeeding.
For example, it's a long shot but I'm going to apply
for a higher position.
Number nine, by the book.
By the book.
This means according to the rules, policies or law.
For example, Matt insists on doing everything
by the book.
It is so annoying.
Comment below with we hate Matt if you agree.
Arg, Matt.
Number 10.
To pencil something in.
To pencil something in.
This means to make provisional plans.
For example, I'll pencil you in for 9 a.m.,
just in case you're free.
I'm writing it in pencil, not in pen
because it's not 100% confirmed yet.
Number 11, in the works.
In the works.
This means in development or coming soon.
For example, we're very excited about the new product
we've got in the works.
Number 12, to drive a hard bargain.
To drive a hard bargain.
This means to negotiate effectively.
For example, I can't believe they agreed to it.
You sure do drive a hard bargain.
Number 13, on the same page.
On the same page.
This means looking at things in the same way.
For example, I'm so glad we're on the same page
about the redundancies.
And number 14, the idiom that we never want to hear,
to get the sack, to get the sack.
This means to get fired.
For example, if I catch you eating my sandwiches again,
you will get the sack.
Right, that's it for today's lesson.
I hope you learned something,
I hope you enjoyed it.
Your homework for today is to research
three more business English idioms
and write them in sentences in the comment section.
Don't forget to check out Lingoda
and their new Business English course.

Mwah.
Arg.
(laughing) (beeping)
If you haven't heard me mention Lingoda before,
it's an online language academy
which offers 24/7 classes with naked.
(dramatic music) (playful music)
Native, native teacher,
not naked teachers.
Oh my God.
Okay.
If bing, binglish, binglish.
(beeping) (mumbling)
All right, that's it for today's.
What am I saying?
That's it for today's lesson,
I hope you enjoyed it, I hurt you, I hurt you.
I hurt you.
(laughing)
Freudian slip?
Subconscious, subliminal message?
I don't know, I don't know.
Your homework for today
is to research three more business English idioms.
