  • So, earlier, I was outside with Jen, and I said, "It's really hot out here."

  • And she said, "You can say that again."

  • It didn't mean that she wanted me to actually say that again.

  • It's just a phrase we use in English when we agree with someone.

  • It's about 31 degrees here, which is quite a bit different than a few weeks ago when it was snowing.

  • Uh, and it's a little hot.

  • Um, it's not overly hot, but it's not what we expect at this time of year.

  • So you would often, uh, when we have a bit of heat at this time of year, people say, "Wow, it's really hot out here."

  • Uh, and then people might reply and say, "You can say that again."

  • Um, this isn't limited to the weather, though.

  • If you ever agree with someone, uh, and they say something that you agree with, you can say, "You can say that again."

  • And again, it doesn't mean that you want them to say it again.

  • It doesn't mean that you want them to say it twice.

  • Sometimes people do just for fun, or to be funny.

  • Uh, but when you say, "You can say that again," it simply means, I agree with you.

  • Um, and then there's this other weird English phrase, "I couldn't agree more," which, looks like it's in the negative, but it's not in the negative.

  • It actually means that you agree with someone.

  • So again, if I said to Jen, "Wow it's really hot out here," she could say, "I couldn't agree more," which means she actually agrees with me 100 percent.

  • So again, if you say to someone, "You can say that again," It means that you agree with them.

  • And if you say to someone, "I couldn't agree more," it means that you agree with them as well.

  • Anyways, Bob the Canadian here on a hot sunny day here in Ontario, Canada.

  • Um, we're not quite used to it, but we will get used to this weather eventually.

  • I know for some of you, it's way hotter.

  • Um, so I don't want to complain too much about the heat.

  • Anyways, hope you're having a good day.

  • Uh, and I hope you enjoyed this little English lesson.

So, earlier, I was outside with Jen, and I said, "It's really hot out here."
