  • Hello everyone!

  • Welcome to ALC Idiom 100, where we learn 100 commonly used idioms by native English speakers.

  • All of the explanations are in English, but please listen carefully and imagine what the meanings might be.

  • It might be challenging, but if you study hard, soon you can use these idioms on your own.

  • Is everyone ready? Let's begin.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Today's idiom is: on the same page.

  • On the same page.

  • Alright, so what do you think, this idiom is about reading the newspaper or a book?

  • Well, not exactly, but it's helpful to imagine the situation.

  • So, let's picture 2 people reading the same book, okay?

  • And this person is on page 10 and this person is on page 20, so that means they're not on the same page

  • and they don't have the same information, so they can't understand each other, okay?

  • So, now let's picture this person is on page 10 and this person is on page 10, so that means they're reading the same information

  • and they can understand each other, okay?

  • So, let's keep this in mind and listen to 2 examples.

  • The first one:

  • Do you think were on the same page now?

  • Of course, we'll not be able to agree if were not on the same page.

  • Okay, then the second example:

  • Does anyone have any questions on this assignment, are we all on the same page?

  • I’m sorry, I’m not on the same page, can you go over number 5 again?

  • Okay, so in the second example, maybe they don't understand each other.

  • He needed more help to be on the same page and understand.

  • Okay, so to be 'on the same page' means to have an understanding of the same information.

  • Maybe you agree, maybe you don't agree, but you have the same information and you can talk about it equally, okay?

  • So, next time you're in a situation when you want to check if someone understands you, you can ask them,

  • 'Are we on the same page?' Yeah, 'Do we understand each other?'

  • Okay, so let's try using this some time soon.

  • I'll see you again next time! Good-bye!

Hello everyone!
