  • In this English lesson I wanted to help you

  • learn the English phrase, I'm game.

  • This is a phrase that we use

  • when we are willing to do something,

  • when we agree to do something.

  • It could be a game,

  • but it could be almost anything else.

  • If my brother says to me,

  • "Hey, do you want to go

  • to the shopping mall this afternoon?"

  • I could say I'm game.

  • That sounds like fun.

  • If a friend of mine said,

  • "Hey, do you wanna go on a hike later today?"

  • I could say you know what, I'm game.

  • That sounds like something I would really enjoy doing.

  • So when you say I'm game,

  • it simply means that you're willing to do it.

  • Now, of course, it can be used for a sport.

  • If someone said,

  • "Hey, do you want to play badminton this afternoon?"

  • I could say I'm game.

  • And it would simply mean that I do want to do it,

  • that I'm excited to do it

  • and that it would be something I think would be fun.

  • The second phrase I wanted to teach you today

  • is the phrase game plan.

  • A game plan is a plan you have for any situation.

  • It can be a plan that you have for a game.

  • Maybe you are playing a sport

  • and you have a plan to try and win the game,

  • but it can be used for anything.

  • When I go into my classroom every day,

  • I have a game plan,

  • I have a lesson plan,

  • I could also call it a game plan though.

  • When I run my clubs after school,

  • I'm involved in a couple of different clubs,

  • I usually have a game plan.

  • Maybe when you go on vacation,

  • you talk to your spouse or you talk to the friends

  • you're going on vacation with

  • and you come up with a game plan for the trip,

  • you come up with a plan.

  • I don't know why we put the word game in front of it,

  • the more I think about it

  • I think you could just say plan

  • and it would mean the same thing, wouldn't it?

  • But it's quite common,

  • sorry there's mosquitoes out here

  • I'm just swatting one.

  • It's quite common in my work

  • when we start something together as a team of teachers,

  • for someone to say,

  • "Okay, what's the game plan?"

  • So to review, when you say I'm game,

  • it simply means that you are

  • agreeing to do something,

  • you're willing to do something.

  • "Hey Bob, can you make three videos a week

  • on this channel?"

  • And I could say I'm game

  • if somebody asked me that question.

  • And if you have a game plan,

  • it means that you have a plan before you do something.

  • I have a game plan for this channel,

  • my game plan is to make three videos a week.

  • But hey (laughs),

  • let's look at a comment from a previous video

  • as I get eaten by mosquitoes out here.

  • Snazzy says sometimes your farm seems like a jungle,

  • lots and lots of trees and grass,

  • really nice and calm,

  • thanks for the lesson.

  • My reply said it is a bit like a jungle (chuckles).

  • Some of the trees I showed you have thorns on them

  • so it's really hard to walk there.

  • And I'm going to actually take you

  • to have a look at some of those trees.

  • We're gonna go, I guess you could call it,

  • bushwhacking is the old fashioned word for it.

  • We're gonna walk out here

  • and I'm going to show you

  • that there are trees,

  • hopefully I can find some,

  • there are a lot of trees in here

  • that have thorns on them.

  • This area, interestingly enough,

  • it used to be a lot easier to walk here

  • because the cows,

  • when my parents were on this farm,

  • I'm not sure if this will focus,

  • but you can see there's a really

  • sharp thorn right there.

  • Let me get it in camera.

  • When I was a kid

  • and when my parents lived here,

  • we had cows and the cows would actually walk

  • through these trees.

  • Let's go a little further in.

  • The cows would actually walk through these trees

  • and they would kind of make all these nice paths for us.

  • Now it has kind of become quite overgrown.

  • There haven't been cows on this farm

  • for a very, very, long time,

  • probably almost 30 or 35 years.

  • It's been a while since we had cows.

  • So you can see behind me,

  • let me flip you around again.

  • You can see behind me that it's quite overgrown.

  • There's a lot of smaller trees growing in.

  • There's a lot of bigger trees

  • in the background as well.

  • So it certainly is a fun place.

  • When there's no mosquitoes in

  • the early spring and late fall,

  • it's a really fun place to be.

  • But right now it's a little bit too buggy for me.

  • Bye, see you in a couple of days

  • with a new English lesson.
