Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.
In this lesson you will learn how to use the idiom 'to call it a day' in your conversations.
The idiom ‘calling it a day' means to stop working on something for the rest of that day, whether or not it is completed.
That's correct. It means to quit an activity for the rest of the day or for the present time and continue it the next day.
I'm tired. Let's call it a day.
Are you kidding? You just got here.
Yes, I'm kidding. I was just giving you an example. Let me give you another one: Larry was working late last night, I told him to call it a day and go home.
Wow! That's surprising, Larry really worked late?
Nope, just another example.
Yeah, I didn't think Larry would do that. He's usually the one to call it a day at noon!
One more thing. ''Calling it a day''also means to stop some activity altogether.
For example: The fossil fuels will be all exhausted in the future, and the oil industry will have to call it a day.
Good example! However teasing Larry like that is not good, we better call it a day.
I know that Martha. In fact, Larry is really competent. He usually complete his work by noon.
I noticed that too!
Alright. Let's listen to some conversations now.
Larry, what are you doing? You just shut down your computer.
I'm calling it a day. I'm off to the beach for a family outing!
It's 2 O‘clock Larry. What about the program codes?
Don't worry, I've already updated them. Why don't you take a look?
Okay, everything looks fine.
I've also designed the widget you told me about; it's in your mail.
Oh thank you so much! I think I can call it a day soon too!
Tina, is that you? Still here at 9pm?
Oh Martha! I can't get my algorithms done.
Sometimes it's best to put them aside, and start fresh later.
Yeah, I think I'll just work one more hour.
No, it's very late, already! Let's call it a day Tina.
Yeah, my brain is not working now. I think it's time to call it a day.
Our team is behind by 8 runs.
Yeah, and only 1 inning is left in the game.
Looks like they might as well call it a day.
I hate to admit it, but our team doesn't stand a chance in this game.
Yep. Let's call it a day too, and head home.
I'm tired. Let's call it a day.
I told him to call it a day and go home.
He's usually the one to call it a day at noon!
I'm calling it a day.
I think I can call it a day soon, too!
I think it's time to call it a day.
Let's call it a day and go home.
