As a noun a heart-to-heart refers to a very private and personal conversation between two people, especially expressing their personal feelings. Yeah. We don't usually say that a heart ... you know, we don't have like a heart-to-heart with three or four or five people. Then... No that sounds strange. It's mostly just two people and you can just stop at heart-to-heart. Like you could say they, they had a heart-to-heart. But when we do say that it is implied that you had a heart-to-heart you know connected to like what we sometimes uses the adjective phrase. Meaning like either a heart-to-heart talk or a heart-to-heart conversation or something like that. All right. Let's continue. Heart-to-heart can also be an adjective phrase, but it is mostly used with nouns. Nouns that have something to do with talking. So you can words, such as nouns as talk. So you can have a heart-to-heart talk. A heart-to-heart conversation . A heart-to-heart discussion. . A heart-to-heart communication etc. As an adjective it means one is very frank, sincere , you know Frank meaning like honest and direct. Sincere, serious or personal. Okay. Let's continue. It seems obvious that we say this phrase. Okay because one is communicating one's personal feelings in hopes of touching the other person's heart and vice versa. And we just we have three examples here to show this. Example number one. You need to stop those bitter feelings. The two of you need to sit down and have a long heart-to-heart. So here's where we really just used it as a noun. We don't .. we don't need to say the word talk or communication or discussion. We know that somebody could just have a heart-to-heart. So somebody maybe these two people have been arguing for a while. This is the third person that probably knows both of them who says you just got to get together and have a heart-to-heart now get these bad feelings out. Something like that. Let's look at number two here. Bill and Jane had a heart-to-heart talk last night and decided to try to work it out rather than break up. So this is probably a romantic couple. Yeah. We might hear it in this sort of situation. It can be very common. Okay. And number three here. She has not been on speaking terms with her daughter for a long time. So if they're not speaking terms. They are not communicating for a long time not , not writing letters. Not calling nothing. However, they recently got together and had a heart-to-heart discussion and now things are getting better. Okay. Good. So this is exactly how we use it. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
