  • Hello and welcome to this Bizmates words and phrases video series for Japanese businesspeople.

  • My name is Hika Ito and I am the creator of the original Bizmates program.

  • And today's word or phrase is every now and then.

  • And what I like about this is that there are four simple words every now and then,

  • but when you put them together, they sound really really natural.

  • Every now and then.

  • But I almost never hear my Japanese students use this.

  • OK, so let's learn how we could use this.

  • OK, so here we have an example and this is what I often ask my students.

  • I say, do you go drinking with your colleagues?

  • And their answer is yes, I sometimes go drinking with my colleagues.

  • This is a perfect answer. Perfect.

  • But it's missing something.

  • It's missing that natural touch.

  • OK? So, to make it sound a little more natural, we could say this.

  • So if I ask do you go drinking with your colleagues?

  • You can say sure, every now and then.

  • Just like that.

  • Sure, every now and then.

  • Now, let's practice the pronunciation here.

  • So, it's sure with a pause.

  • Sure, it's not every now and then,

  • but it's every now and then, now and then. See how they connect? Now and. Nowanthen.

  • It's not now and then. Now and then.

  • Now, I want you to try.

  • Sure, every now and then.

  • One more time.

  • Sure, every now and then.

  • So, let me ask you. Do you go drinking with your colleagues?

  • OK... excellent.

  • So, for homework now.

  • I want you to tell me what do you do every now and then.

  • OK, so next time we meet,

  • I'm going to ask you, please tell me, what do you do every now and then?

  • OK, see you next time.

  • Thank you.
