  • Hello and welcome to The English We Speak.

  • I'm Feifei.

  • And I'm Roy! Feifei, have you listened to

  • the latest song by my favourite band,

  • Dragon Tennis?

  • Dragon Tennis are a terrible band

  • who make dreadful music. Mic drop!

  • What?! I think the lead singer dropped

  • the microphone once. You can't hate

  • them because of that!

  • No, Roy. We say 'mic drop' at the end

  • of a sentence after we have made an

  • impressive or pertinent point in a discussion,

  • rendering the conversation over.

  • Oh, so our conversation is finished?

  • OK. Well, that makes sense about

  • the expression 'mic drop'.

  • Yes, we can also use it after

  • you've just finished roasting someone.

  • Yes, for example: Feifei, your taste in

  • music is terrible which is why you don't

  • appreciate Dragon Tennis. Mic drop!

  • Very good example, but not true.

  • Let's listen to these examples.

  • Your idea is the worst thing I've

  • ever heard! Mic drop.

  • I can't believe he ended his message

  • with 'mic drop'. He's so wrong and the

  • discussion is not over!

  • This is undoubtedly the best game ever.

  • Mic drop!

  • This is The English We Speak from

  • BBC Learning English, and we're talking about

  • the expression 'mic drop', which is commonly

  • used at the end of a discussion when someone

  • makes a point that ends the conversation.

  • Yes, it's quite common in messages or emails.

  • It's also seen with the verb 'perform'.

  • That's right - 'perform a mic drop'. I use this

  • a lot when I'm discussing things with

  • people and I know I'm right.

  • It's true that you say that a lot.

  • I think you've explained the

  • expression really well.

  • It's true! My job here is done. Mic drop!

  • Very good use of 'mic drop'.

  • What else shall we teach now?

  • Nothing. I was serious

  • when I said mic drop. Bye.

  • Bye!
