  • Feifei: Hello and welcome to The English

  • We Speak. I'm Feifei...

  • Rob: ... and hello, I'm Rob. Feifei, why's

  • your hair wet - it's not raining, is it?

  • Feifei: No, Rob. I've just been for my

  • swimming lesson. It was a bit scary,

  • actually.

  • Rob: Why's that?

  • Feifei: Well, for the first time, I swam into

  • the deep end and couldn't stand up.

  • The lifeguard had to jump in and save me.

  • Rob: Oh dear, Feifei. It sounds like you

  • were out of your depth!

  • Feifei: Yes, I suppose I was.

  • Rob: Well, I'm out of my depth too.

  • Feifei: What - you're learning to swim too?

  • Rob: No, no. I'm struggling to complete

  • this project about statistics that the boss

  • has asked me to do. I know nothing about

  • statistics and numbers - it's just too

  • difficult and I just can't do it. So

  • I'm out of my depth.

  • Feifei: Ah, I've got it. When you are out of

  • your depth, it can mean you are in a

  • difficult situation that you cannot cope

  • with - it could be because a task exceeds

  • your knowledge or ability. so it's a bit like

  • drowning in a situation - but not literally.

  • Rob: Exactly. Let's hear some examples...

  • I'm so out of my depth in this new job.

  • I haven't got a clue what to do!

  • When everyone started talking about

  • politics I knew I was out of my depth,

  • so I politely made my excuses and

  • went home.

  • He was clearly out of his depth in the

  • match - he lacked any skill and couldn't

  • even pass the ball!

  • Feifei: This is The English We Speak from

  • BBC Learning English and we're talking

  • about the phrase 'out of your depth'. It

  • describes a situation that is too

  • difficult for you, and you do not have

  • the knowledge or ability to cope with it.

  • Well, Rob, I may be able to save you! I love

  • statistics and can help you out.

  • Rob: Oh that's great. And I can help you

  • improve your swimming.

  • Feifei: Oh yes? How can you do that?

  • Rob: You can borrow my arm bands so

  • you'll never sink, even in the deep end.

  • You'll never be out of your depth again!

  • Feifei: Thanks, but I think I should learn to

  • swim properly. Anyway, when do you need

  • to complete this project for the boss by?

  • Rob: Errr... now.

  • Feifei: Oh. Come on then. We had better

  • go and get on with it, otherwise the boss

  • will throw you in the deep end! Bye.

  • Rob: Bye.

Feifei: Hello and welcome to The English
