Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 123. The noun phrase today is
heart-to-heart. Okay. Let's continue here. As a noun a heart-to-heart refers to a
very private and personal conversation between two people, especially expressing
their personal feelings. Yeah. We don't usually say that a heart ... you know, we
don't have like a heart-to-heart with three or four or five people. Then... No
that sounds strange. It's mostly just two people and you can just stop at
heart-to-heart. Like you could say they, they had a heart-to-heart. But when we do
say that it is implied that you had a heart-to-heart you know connected to
like what we sometimes uses the adjective phrase. Meaning like either a
heart-to-heart talk or a heart-to-heart conversation or something like that. All
right. Let's continue. Heart-to-heart can also be an adjective
phrase, but it is mostly used with nouns. Nouns that have something to do with
talking. So you can words, such as nouns as talk. So you can have a heart-to-heart talk.
A heart-to-heart conversation . A heart-to-heart discussion. . A
heart-to-heart communication etc. As an adjective it means one is very frank,
sincere , you know Frank meaning like honest and direct. Sincere, serious or
personal. Okay. Let's continue. It seems obvious that we say this phrase. Okay
because one is communicating one's personal feelings in hopes of touching
the other person's heart and vice versa. And we just we have three examples here
to show this. Example number one. You need to stop those bitter feelings. The two of
you need to sit down and have a long heart-to-heart. So here's where we really
just used it as a noun. We don't .. we don't need to say the word talk or
communication or discussion. We know that somebody could just have a
heart-to-heart. So somebody maybe these two people have
been arguing for a while. This is the third person that probably knows both of
them who says you just got to get together and have a heart-to-heart
now get these bad feelings out. Something like that. Let's look at number two here.
Bill and Jane had a heart-to-heart talk last night and decided to try to work it
out rather than break up. So this is probably a romantic couple. Yeah. We might
hear it in this sort of situation. It can be very common. Okay. And number three here.
She has not been on speaking terms with her daughter for a long time. So if
they're not speaking terms. They are not communicating for a long time not , not
writing letters. Not calling nothing. However, they recently got together and
had a heart-to-heart discussion and now things are getting better. Okay. Good.
So this is exactly how we use it. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope it was
informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
