Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 87. The verb phrase today is
hold out for. Hold out for something. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If
someone holds out for something, he or she waits patiently to get a better deal
or what he desires. What he really wants. Okay. We got three examples. Let's look at
example number one. She is holding out for a better deal. We say that all
the time. Number two. The owner of that house is
standing firm on the price. He is unwilling to accept any lower offers. He
is holding out until he gets his asking price. And so a lot of times about money
you might be holding out for the price that you want, or the price that you
expect or the amount of money that you desire. Okay. Let's look at number three.
Another company offered me a lower position, you know a job but in a lower
level. But I am planning on holding out until someone offers me the position I
want. So again it could be about a job. It's usually some kind of offer. You're
holding out until you get what you want or you at least get something better
than what somebody has offered you. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.
Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
