  • 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!

  • Today's idiom is: see eye to eye.

  • See eye to eye.

  • Alright, and this idiom is talking about your eyes, seeing eye to eye.

  • So, let's imagine two people go to the paint store and they want to paint their apartment and they're looking at a color chart.

  • Okay, and one person is here and the other person is here and they're looking at the color chart.

  • And there's pink and red and blue and purple and they're looking at the chart and they both choose brown.

  • And they're looking at the brown and they're seeing eye to eye.

  • It's the same color, seeing eye to eye.

  • Alright, so let's try to think about this as we listen to the examples.

  • Should I explain it to you again?

  • Yes, I just wanna make sure we're seeing eye to eye.

  • Okay, let's listen to the other example.

  • Mom, how long are we gonna continue to talk about my grades?

  • Until we see eye to eye on how important your education is!

  • Okay, so in both these situations, they wanted to make sure they were seeing eye to eye,

  • meaning that they agree with each other and have the same understanding.

  • Okay, so if you're talking to someone and you want to make sure that you understand each other and that you have the same agreement,

  • you can ask, 'Do we see eye to eye on this,' or you can say, 'I'm glad we see eye to eye',

  • meaning you're happy that you agree with each other.

  • Alright, and this is a good phrase to use with someone of an equal level or maybe a little lower level,

  • for example, your students, your children, but maybe not to your boss.

  • Yeah, if you say to your boss, 'Do we see eye to eye,' it doesn't sound so great,

  • but to someone the same level or a little bit below, yeah, 'Do we see eye to eye,' that sounds great for asking if you agree with each other.

  • Alright, so let's try to use this again soon and I'll see you next time.
