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! Nice to see you.
Today's idiom is: drag on.
Drag on.
Alright, do you know the meaning of this idiom?
Maybe not, so let's try to picture something in our head to help us understand.
Alright, so do you know the meaning of drag?
Drag means to pull. To pull or drag, okay?
So, let's imagine a big box, okay?
And we're pulling or dragging the box, drag and we're dragging and dragging and 5 minutes later, still dragging.
Drag on. Drag on. Oh, it's getting kind of tiring and not so fun.
Okay, drag on, pulling the box.
Alright, so let's listen to some examples and think about the meaning of this idiom.
How long has that MC been speaking?
I’m not sure, but it's been dragging on for quite some time!
Okay, so the MC is speaking for a long time. It's dragging on.
Alright, let's listen to another example.
Are you getting any of your laundry done?
With this bad weather dragging on for so long, my laundry is really piling up.
Alright, so the bad weather is dragging on and they can't do their laundry.
Okay, so to 'drag on' means to continue, but usually it's a little bit negative.
Yeah, it's something that's maybe not fun or interesting, yeah.
If something is very exciting, we wouldn't say it's dragging on,
but if something is boring or just not so fun, maybe we'll say it's dragging on, okay?
So, if you remember another idiom, we can use them together.
So, maybe the MC is giving you a speech or your coworker is giving a speech, trying to tell you something
and he's just going on and on and on.
He's dragging on, but you really want to know what he's trying to say, what is his point, right?
He's dragging on, so you can tell him, 'Just spit it out!'
Yeah, stop dragging it on and spit it out.
Alright, so let's try using these idioms next time and I'll see you around.
