  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 377. The title of today's lesson is the

  • difference between mean to do something and mean doing something. Yeah. They sound

  • quite similar but the meanings are very different and they're

  • used in different ways. So let's look at the note here. Now mean

  • to do something basically means this. It means that you plan to do something or

  • you had the intention of to do something. So if we say to mean to do something

  • that's what it is. You're planning to do it. You're hoping to do it. You had the

  • intention in your mind of doing it. Okay. Let's continue.

  • So here's a couple of examples. I meant to pick up some toilet paper on

  • the way home, but I forgot. So here when you say I meant to pick up some toilet

  • you, you plan to do it. You had it in your mind. When you left work. Oh, I had better

  • stop at the supermarket or wherever it is. The drugstore wherever it is and pick

  • up your toilet paper. Okay. The second one here. I meant to do some research on that,

  • but I have been too busy. So you were planning on doing it. You had the intention

  • of doing it , but maybe you're too busy. you didn't get to it. Okay.

  • All right. Now mean doing something. Mean doing something actually means to

  • involve doing something. So whatever this is, this involves this. Okay. So here's a

  • couple of examples this way. Being a weightlifter means going to the gym

  • every day. So this involves this. If you're going to be a weightlifter, this is what you

  • will have to do. It involves going to the gym every day, lifting weights for

  • probably... I don't know five, six, seven hours. That's what that means. Okay. Good.

  • The second one here. Being a fireman sometimes means risking your life to

  • save others. So this is what it involves, if you really want to be a fireman, there

  • might be a number of times in your life where you may have to risk your life.

  • Hopefully not every day, but you know, if you're a fireman long enough this

  • probably going to be a number of times It's probably going to be at least dozens

  • of time throughout your career where you may actually have to risk your

  • life to do it. Okay. And, and here's a couple of examples where student might

  • mix them up. All right. So this is the first one being a good teacher means to

  • prepare your classes. So this is the more likely way you might mix it up.

  • No. Of course this should mean involve doing something. So being a good teacher

  • means preparing your classes. This is what it involves. You have to do this in

  • order to be ready to teach and you know so that you're more prepared for your

  • class when you teach. Being a good student means to study hard every day.

  • No. Being a good student means studying hard every day. It means doing something.

  • This is what it involves. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. I hope it is

  • informative. Thank you for your time. Bye- bye.
