  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 17. The adjective phrase

  • today is old-school. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If we say that

  • someone is old school, it is used in an approving way. Yeah. Usually we like, like

  • this or like this about the person. A way to refer to someone or something that is

  • old-fashioned or traditional. Yeah. So I guess it kind of alludes to the idea

  • this was the old way that you learned how to do things and you believe in, you

  • trust that way more. You're still old school. You still prefer to follow that

  • way or that way of thinking. So let's look at the first one. Example number one

  • here. My girlfriend's parents have old school thinking. If I sleep over her

  • house we must sleep in separate rooms. Yeah. They still believe this is the

  • traditional way. You're not supposed to be in the same room or sleep in the same

  • room until you're married or something like that. Okay. Or let's look at number

  • two. Her uncle is very old-school in regard to money. He never spends money he

  • doesn't have and he refuses to even own credit cards. Yeah. That's kind of rare

  • today. That you find somebody that doesn't even have a credit card anymore.

  • But maybe he believes that's not the way. He prefers the old way. The traditional

  • way. Okay and number three. That teacher prefers to still use old-school methods.

  • Yeah. We often hear old-school methods. In that way maybe she thinks the old way is

  • better than some of these new ways that they're telling her to do it. Anyway, I

  • hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
