  • Feifei: Hello and welcome to The English

  • We Speak with me, Feifei...

  • Neil: There you go, Feifei - one

  • skinny cappuccino for you...

  • Feifei: Thanks, Neil. It's good to get away

  • from the office, and I like this cafe... it's

  • very stylish, for you!

  • Neil: I will take that as a compliment.

  • Now, shall we get down to business?

  • Feifei: 'Get down to business'?

  • Do we have to talk about business?

  • I thought we'd forget

  • about work, relax, talk about...

  • your holiday plans. Where are

  • you going this year?

  • Neil: Sorry, Feifei, we need

  • to talk shop for a minute.

  • Feifei: Shoppping! I'd love

  • to talk about shopping.

  • Neil: No. Talk shop.

  • Feifei: Which shop?

  • Neil: Our shop - I mean our work.

  • To talk shop means to talk about work,

  • even when you're

  • not at work!

  • Feifei|: Oh right! And do we talk shop

  • to just anyone?

  • Neil: No, Feifei, just to the people we

  • work with - I don't think

  • anyone else would be

  • interested. Let's hear from some more

  • people who are 'talking shop'...

  • We went to the pub to celebrate

  • Rob's birthday, but inevitably

  • we started talking shop!

  • I bumped into my boss on the train

  • home tonight and he talked shop

  • all the way to my stop.

  • We've been at work all day, let's all have

  • some fun and not talk shop - please!

  • Feifei: This is The English We Speak

  • from BBC Learning English,

  • and we're talking about

  • the phrase 'talk shop'. It means

  • to talk to people you work with

  • about work, even when

  • you're not at work. So come on then, Neil.

  • Let's talk about work, if we have to.

  • Neil: Thanks. I brought you to the cafe so

  • we could talk about all the scripts

  • I've got to write.

  • Feifei: You want me to write some scripts

  • - that's why you bought me a coffee?

  • Neil: Of course not. I just need some

  • ideas for some authentic

  • English phrases to write

  • about. That's why I needed to ...

  • Feifei: shop.

  • Neil: Exactly.

  • Feifei: No! 'Talk shop' - that's

  • an English phrase you can write about.

  • Neil: Brilliant, Feifei! Wow, these

  • scripts just write themselves.

  • Fancy another coffee?

  • Feifei: Only if we stop talking shop!

  • Neil: Bye.
