  • Hi, guys.

  • This is key from BBC Learning English Today.

  • I'm going to tell you about some informal ways of using English in English.

  • When we want to tell a friend about something we don't use the word notify.

  • That's what businesses do.

  • Businesses notify their customers and the prime minister might notify ministers.

  • But we don't notify our friends about our weekend plans.

  • It's too formal in English.

  • We say I'm going to let my friend know that I'm going out.

  • Let him know, not notify.

  • Let him know now, you know.

Hi, guys.
