  • Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.

  • In this lesson you will learn how to use the idiom 'it's a steal' when you talk in English.

  • 'It's a steal' means you are buying something at a very good price or at a price that's surprisingly low.

  • I also hear people saying 'shopping for a steal', does it mean the same?

  • Yes, it means the price is very cheap! It also means a good bargain.

  • That's the reason shops advertise 'these prices are a steal', right?

  • Exactly! That means you can buy at such cheap prices that you'll feel as if you're almost stealing it! By the way, you look great in those jeans!

  • They're Armani at 50% discount! Just $70!

  • Wow! Such a great deal; that's really a steal! I'm gonna go shopping today.

  • Alright! But let's listen to some conversations before you go shopping.

  • Hi there, Hillary!

  • Hello Greg. Another new car?!

  • Oh! It's not new. It's a year old!

  • It still looks new! How much did you pay for it?

  • I paid $3,000.

  • You got this great car for 3,000 bucks! That's a steal!

  • Yeah, I got it on sale, at a stealing price. That's why I bought it!

  • Hey Maxi, let's go and grab some T-shirts from the Supersale.

  • Ah! Are the prices any good?

  • I'm sure there are some good bargains there. They have Puma 'buy one and get another for free' for just $20!

  • Hmmm...that's a steal! Maybe we should hurry up.

  • Yeah! At that price, they're sure to run out of stock.

  • Let's go, Greg!

  • Rebecca, when will you buy the new LED TV?

  • Guess I'll buy it the day after Christmas. The prices will be a steal!

  • You don't have to wait for that! I got a brand new Sony LED last week for $700!

  • No way! That's a real steal! Tell me about it!

  • There's a website which lets you bid on the products they sell.

  • Let's check it out. I'll show you the site.
