Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 247. The idiom today is a matter of
course. Okay. We have several meanings or several ways that we use it here. So
let's look at the example. If something is done or occurs as a matter of course,
it is something that is expected or as a natural or logical consequence or a
natural logical result. Okay. Good. Number two here. It can also mean as a
normal procedure. It's an old procedure that somebody does
or follows. A regular habit or a form of behavior. So it could be used in any of
these ways. We got several examples of what we have here that will cover all
of these uses we're talking about. So let's look at example number one. Unless
the birth rate increases in that country, as a matter of course it is going to end up
as a graying society. Remember a graying society, we already have a number of them
already. Japan is probably the best example. Were
you, you have kind of a lopsided population. You have too many old people
and not enough young people. China is definitely headed for that because of
the you know, the one-child policy they had for many, many years. So you could end
up as a graying society where you have farm far too many older people and not
enough younger people to kind of support them. Okay, good. So let's continue here.
All right . So remember here, we said it is going to end up as a graying society. So
this is more like a consequence. A natural or logical consequence. Unless,
unless you do some significant... take some significant actions, this is how
it's going to end up. It's just a numbers game. Okay. Let's look at number two. When
traveling , you should take safety precautions as a matter of course. Well
this could be a few ones here. This could be like as a normal procedure. Like if
you travel a lot or even as a regular habit or form of behavior. If you do a
lot of traveling this is one thing that you know, you're supposed to do
To protect yourself while traveling. Okay. Good.
Number three here. If she is your daughter, we will hire her. But as a
matter of course, she must go through the ... the interview process. All right. Yeah.
Again basically this is the normal procedure in the company they probably
know her already. Maybe they're doing our favor
hiring her daughter, but you know , you still have to do it the, the, the normal
way that everybody else does it. So you still must go through the interview
process as a matter of course. Okay. Good. And number four. The last one. As a
matter of course, I want my lawyer to look over the contract before I will
sign it. Yeah. So again, this is probably this is a normal procedure for this
person or this business person that he wants to do. He wants to make sure the
lawyer looks it over, just in case something is a sneaky or something you
might not see in the contract. Hopefully your lawyer will catch it before you sign
it. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank
you for your time. Bye-bye.
