  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 308. All right.

  • The title of today's lesson is "Don't Do an Offer, Say Make an Offer.

  • " You can also say give an offer too.

  • So all right.

  • Again, with the X here this is wrong.

  • If someone says I cannot do you a better offer.

  • No.

  • You know, most foreigners or Westerners may understand that.

  • But it is not really proper English.

  • It's not correct English.

  • It sounds like your English ability is not the best.

  • So , you should say , I cannot make you a better offer.

  • I cannot give you a better offer.

  • So both of these with the check this is right.

  • All right here.

  • You can say this.

  • I cannot give you a better deal.

  • That sounds even the best of all of these.

  • So, you can say any of those.

  • Okay.

  • Again with the X.

  • Let's see this one.

  • This is the best offer I can possibly do.

  • You might hear this one.

  • Again it is not really quite proper.

  • It sounds a little better than the first one.

  • But again , it is not really proper.

  • So you should say this is the best offer, I can possibly make.

  • This is the best offer I can possibly give.

  • So both of these two with the check . These are fine.

  • These are good.

  • And the last one here.

  • We can also say this.

  • This is the best offer I have the authority to give.

  • That is probably what you mean, especially in business deals.

  • You might be doing this.

  • You know When you say a certain offer.

  • So again, just try to avoid to say to do an offer.

  • Yeah.

  • Again the Westerner would probably understand it , but it is better to say make or give.

  • Anyway, I hope you got it.

  • I hope it is clear . Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
