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 again!
Today's idiom is: have second thoughts.
Have second thoughts.
Let's try to think about the meaning of this idiom.
Alright, so let's imagine you have one thought, okay?
Your thought is, 'I want to go skydiving.'
Okay, so here's thought 1, 'Let's go skydiving.'
And you go to the plane and you go up in the air and then, you have a second thought:
'Nooo! Don't do it!', okay?
It's your second thought.
What might this mean?
Let's listen to some examples, okay?
The first example:
I’m having second thoughts about going to yoga class.
Why, it is good exercise!
Yes, but it’s from 6 in the morning.
Okay, so maybe they wanted to go to yoga class, but it's very early, so maybe they're not sure anymore.
Okay, let's listen to the second example.
Are you still going grocery shopping this afternoon?
Well, I’m having second thoughts about going. It looks like it's gonna rain, so I think I’ll just use leftovers.
Okay, so she planned to go to the grocery store, was the first plan, first thought.
And second thought is, 'Ah, it's raining. I'll use food that I cooked yesterday, leftovers.'
Okay, so having second thoughts means maybe you're doubting, you're doubting the plan or you're doubting the first idea.
So, you're not sure if you want to continue with your first thought, you think you might be changing your mind, okay?
So, next time you have a second thought and you're not sure about something, let's try using this idiom.
Yeah, I hope you're not having second thoughts about studying English.
Please stick to it!
Alright, that's all for today! See you next time!
