Hello everyone!
Welcome to Idiom 100, where we learn 100 commonly used idioms by native English speakers.
All of the explanations are in English, so it might be challenging for you,
but just try to imagine the meanings in your head and study hard and soon you'll be able to use these idioms in your conversations.
Is everyone ready? Let's begin.
Hello everyone!
Today's idiom is: for sure, right?
For sure, right?
Can you imagine this meaning?
It's a little strange.
So, let's imagine someone is very certain of themselves and they say, 'For sure.'
Yeah, 100%, for sure.
And then, 'Right?'
For sure, right?
Okay, so let's listen to 2 examples of this idiom.
The first one:
Don't you think the economy has gotten worse than last year?
For sure, right? Many of my friends lost their jobs.
Okay, so for sure, right?
He's not asking a question, but maybe using as emphasis.
Maybe same as, 'Don't you think?'.
Okay, let's listen to the second example.
If I go abroad to study English, I should be able to learn it within a year for sure, right?
Yes, but only if you hang with the right crowd of people.
Okay, so the first speaker thinks they can definitely learn English in one year, probably.
Okay, so they say, 'for sure, right', to check if the other speaker agrees and they answered 'yes'.
So, sometimes you get an answer, 'yes', and sometimes no answer.
In this case, 'for sure, right' can be called a rhetorical question, a question you ask and you don't expect an answer.
It's just for emphasis.
Okay, so let's try using, 'for sure, right?' next time you're certain about something, but want to ask a rhetorical question and go for emphasis.
Okay, that's all for today. See you next time!
