  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 133. The proverb today is "birds of a

  • feather flock together. Okay. " Let's look at the note here. This proverb basically

  • means that people who have similar interests or are like-minded usually

  • will seek out so they search for each other they will seek out and prefer to

  • hang out together. Okay Let's continue. The first citing of this proverb was

  • cited in 1545. So it has been around for well over 400 to 500 years ago. In

  • William Turner's "The Rescuing of the Ramesh Fox." Okay. And, and here's the

  • actual original quote. You can see the spellings of these words have changed.

  • a lot. Maybe the pronunciation was kind of

  • similar. It does still look like birds of on kynde instead of like one of on kind and

  • color flock and fly always together but of course the spelling is very different

  • from the Middle English. This is when... that's how old this proverb is. But we

  • still use it today. Let's go. Let's look at some examples. The first one is an a/b

  • part. So in the first one it says , in a lot of teen movies. You know, those

  • teenage movies. They often show students tend to form cliques in high school. Yeah.

  • If you ever seen any teenage movie, there's always a high school ... there's

  • always a high school lunch scene. And at one table you have a lot of the nerdy

  • brainy kids. They all sit together. And then at another table you have like the

  • beauty queens , the very beautiful girls that like all kinds of fashion. They all

  • sit together at another table.And then you have the the jock table. You know, the

  • football players. the tough guys. They all sit at a ... or the bully's you know, they

  • all sit at another table. So well it's a perfect example. They form cliques , so

  • birds of a feather flock together. So students that are similar or similar-

  • minded with similar interests, they tend to hang out together. And so let's just

  • look at the B part here. So you know, A said that. In a lot of movies

  • they, they show students tend to form cliques in high school and B says, well I

  • guess birds of a feather really do flock together. Okay. Let's look at number two.

  • They became good friends because they are very like-minded. Remember

  • like-minded means you think the same way. They're, they're in the same age group , like

  • the same sports and support the same politics. And of course , B here also says

  • because two is also an a/b part. Well birds of a feather flock together.

  • Meaning that's the way it usually goes . Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope, hope it

  • was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye- bye.
