  • Hello everyone!

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

  • All of the explanations are in English, so it might be challenging for you,

  • but just try to imagine the meanings in your head and study hard and soon you'll be able to use these idioms in your conversations.

  • Is everyone ready? Let's begin.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Today's idiom is: keep you word.

  • Keep your word.

  • Alright, so what's this idiom mean?

  • Well, let's picture someone says a word and you take the word and put it back in your mouth and close your mouth.

  • You keep your word.

  • Okay, keep your word.

  • Let's listen to 2 examples and think about what this idiom might mean.

  • The first example:

  • If I tell you a secret can you keep your word not to tell anyone?

  • Of course, I have a zipper on my mouth!

  • Okay, so he's going to tell her a secret and she's going to keep her word not to tell anyone, okay?

  • The second example:

  • I wouldn’t count on Jim to keep his word, you know he's really bad at it, right?

  • That’s true, I guess I will not tell him after all.

  • Okay, so in this situation, Jim is bad at keeping his word, means he'll tell many people about a secret or something.

  • Okay, so 'keep your word', in this case 'word' means a promise, so keep your promise.

  • And your promise could be anything.

  • For example, 'I promise to study hard.'

  • Yeah, I keep my word, okay?

  • I will study hard.

  • I keep my promise.

  • Or you can ask someone if they can keep their word not to tell a secret

  • and if they say, 'Yes, I'll keep my word,' then maybe you can tell them the secret, they'll be quiet.

  • Okay, so let's try using 'keep your word' next time you want someone to keep a promise.

  • Alright, that's all for today, see you next time!
