Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 102. The noun phrase today is eager-beaver.
Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If you say that someone is an eager
beaver. You mean that that person is very enthusiastic and is willing to work very
hard , especially to please others. Okay. Let's continue. It tends to be used more
with younger people or someone who may be a newcomer at a company. Yeah. So
that's why they're new at the company so they're more likely to be an eager
beaver at that time. They have to you know prove themselves. Let's continue. The
origin probably comes from the idea that the animal, beaver is a very hard worker.
This can often be seen by all the effort they put into building dams, shelters, etc.
Okay. All right. Good. So let's just look at a few examples to cover this idea.
Example number one. That new employee is a real eager beaver. He often volunteers
to do much more work. Much more than his assigned work. Okay. So he's definitely an
eager beaver, He tries very hard, maybe he's trying to impress the boss or maybe you know he's
just enthusiastic right now. Number two, Many new members of that organization
start out as eager beavers, but after a while their enthusiasm starts to fade.
Yeah. That could happen anywhere. But it could be you know, maybe it's an
organization like Greenpeace or something like that. All right. Let's look
at number three. Many eager beaver lawyers become
ambulance chasers. Yeah. A long time ago I did the noun phrase on an ambulance
chaser. That's the type of lawyer that's really trying hard to find clients. You
know they see like somebody get into ...you know, they get slightly get hurt, but not
really hurt and they'll run over and hand them their
card. You know, oh you know if you need a lawyer you know we might be able to sue
them and so they're they're out there actually trying to find their clients
physically. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it is clear. I hope it was informative. Thank
you for your time. Bye-bye.
