  • Hello, and welcome to this Bizmates words and phrases video lesson for Japanese businesspeople.

  • And today's word is industry leader. But before we start this, let's start our little test.

  • OK. So last time, we learned every now and then. So tell me, what do you do every now and then?

  • Do you go drinking every now and then? Do you play tennis every now and then?

  • Do you play golf every now and then? What do you do?

  • OK, let's go to our word, industry leader.

  • Now, what I like about this or these two words is it really sounds business.

  • Industry and leader.

  • And when you put them together, and use this effectively you sound like ah

  • this person knows about business. OK let's learn how to properly use this.

  • OK. So. You know I often ask people, "Is your company or is MMB a big company?" And their answer is

  • oh yes, they are the number one company in our industry. Perfect answer. No problems.

  • But number one is used in music, it's the number one song, the number one singer.

  • It's used in sports; he's the number one player. It's used by children; I'm number one.

  • You know, it's used everywhere. It doesn't really have that business feel.

  • To give it a more business, natural feel, we can use industry leader, like this.

  • So, is MMB a big company?

  • And you could say, "Oh yes, they're the industry leader." Wow, I'll think wow this person knows business.

  • OK, let's try the pronunciation. Oh yes, with a pause. Oh yes, they're the industry leader.

  • And the point is this one here. It's not the. They are the. It's they're the. And it's a really soft the.

  • Oh yes, they're the industry leader. So, you can almost not catch it.

  • Oh yes, they're the industry leader. You try.

  • OK. Is MMB a big company?

  • OK, very good. So for homework,

  • I want you to tell me who is the industry leader in your business?

  • ABC company? BBB Company?

  • OK. So, for homework tell me next time. OK, we'll see you. Thank you.
