Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 117. The proverb today is
monkey-see monkey-do. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. This phrase is
often used with children imitating or copying others. Meaning other people.
However it is not limited to children. When used with adults it suggests they
are copying someone without thinking about it. Without thinking about what
they are doing. Okay. Let's take a look at several examples here. And of course you
know when we get monkey-see monkey-do it probably alludes to the idea if you ever
watch monkeys, if have you ever gone to a zoo, sometimes if you could do something the
monkey might actually copy. You know, or we've seen this before monkeys copy each
other and they may copy human behavior too. So this is why we say monkey see
monkey do. That's where the phrase the idea for the phrase actually comes from.
But let's look at the examples. Example number one. You have to be
careful not to use any dirty words in front of the children or in front of
small children. They repeat and do whatever they see. You know how it goes.
Monkey see monkey do. Yeah. You know, sometimes you, you might hear this. You,
see this in the movies a lot. A little child might say the dirty word. Oh how
did he learn that ? Where did he hear that from ? You know, obviously he heard it from
another adult. So we sometimes say monkey see monkey do. So we use a lot with
children. Number two. Yes. He says when children first go to school, they start
picking up bad habits from other kids. It is just monkey see, monkey do. You know.
maybe they'll start noticing what ... Why are you behaving like that ? And maybe
they learned it from some other kids in school. All right. And let's look at number
three. Many teenagers or even you know young adults get involved in
law-breaking behavior. What are we talking about ?
Maybe shoplifting, maybe taking drugs. Some something along
that line. Due to peer pressure. It is a matter of
monkey-see monkey-do. Yeah. Maybe they see some of their other friends. Maybe they
get mixed in with a bad crowd. They see these other friends or their peers doing
something and you know they might copy it. So in this sense , we could say
monkey-see monkey-do. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for
your time. Bye-bye.
