While
1) When two continuous actions are happening at the same time we will use “while”
Eg: I am teaching while my brother is out playing football.
When
1) When two single actions happen at the same time or one action happens right after the other we used “when”
Eg: He called me when I got home
Eg: When I ate, I felt better.
2) Ages and periods of life
Eg: I used to walk a lot when I was young
Eg: I graduated when I was 21.
3) Used as a question (to know the time)
Eg: When do we leave from here?

But what happens when we have a continuous action and a single action in the same sentence. Do we use “while” or “when”? Now that’s a tricky question. But I’ll make it very simple and clear for you.
Eg: He got into a fight while we were shopping.
In this case, you can use both “while” or “when” mainly because the single action comes before the continuous action
But if we change the sentence around we say
Eg: We were shopping when he got into a fight. (Single action comes after the continuous action)

At times you might find it difficult to understand the spoken English used by the higher ups in your company. Learn all that in today’s ESL lesson with Emmelda and improve your English speaking to speak English fluently and confidently.

Under my nose –
When you do something under someone’s supervision you do it under their nose, you could do such thing with or without they observing you.

Target –
Target could be used as a noun and as a verb.
Target as a noun – It means you set a specific goal to achieve, for example, Your target is to earn $15K a month.
Target as a verb- It means you are in the process of aiming at some goal, confusing, let’s look at an example – If your boss says “You need to target at $35000 sales a month”. So that's a verb, your boss is asking you to aim at or to look for selling products that will earn you $35000.

Deadline-
The deadline means the last date of finishing something. It could be a project, an assignment or sales target of the month.

Club together-
This means to team up something. If your boss says “I need you to club together with the marketing team”. It means you want to bring it up as a group.

Head start –
Head start means the help given by someone before you start something. So head start means help. It’s a help that you would get before you start doing an activity.

Follow up –
When you follow up, you are trying to understand what happened or you are trying to understand if-if there's any new update.

Count on –
This means to rely on or trust someone for doing your something. This phrase is generally used to affirm if someone can do something for you.

Wind things up –
To wind things up means to finish things up. When your boss says this he means, quickly take a break or move on to something else.

Literal and Metaphorical Meanings of English ...


source: Oxford Online English    2017年3月13日
Many English phrasal verbs have a literal and metaphorical meaning. Learning about these meanings can help you learn and remember English phrasal verbs.
See the full version: https://oxfordonlineenglish.com/phras...

I have a question for you:
You can 'look into a bag'.
You can 'look into a problem', or 'look into an idea'.
What’s the difference? And, is there any connection?
When I 'look into the bag', we’re using 'look into' with a literal meaning. I’m physically looking inside the bag.
But if you 'look into a problem' or 'look into an idea', 'look into' doesn’t have a literal meaning. If you 'look into a problem', you examine it or you investigate it.
Here, 'look into' has a metaphorical meaning.
When we use phrasal verbs with metaphorical meanings like this, the meaning can be hard to guess.
Thinking about the meaning of the separate words 'look' and 'into' doesn’t really help you to guess the meaning of the phrasal verb 'look into'.
However, if you think about the literal meaning of 'look into', it starts to make more sense.
When I 'look into' the bag, you can say that I’m examining the bag. I’m investigating the bag to see what’s inside it.
If you think like this, using 'look into' to mean 'examine' seems more logical, right?
Many phrasal verbs have metaphorical meanings like this.
In this lesson, you can learn about phrasal verbs in English. You'll learn about four verbs: 'look', 'take', 'walk' and 'get'. We will look into the literal meanings of using prepositions with these verbs, and then see the metaphorical meanings of the phrasal verbs with the same form.
You’ll learn how to use the phrasal verbs in different ways. This will make phrasal verbs seem a little more logical and easier to remember!

'Battle of Nerves'


source: Twominute English    2013年7月16日
We use the idiom 'battle of nerves' to describe a situation in which two parties are in constant dispute and are not willing to surrender, trying to defeat each other by threatening or even waiting without doing anything.

0:18 The situation when two parties are in dispute and are not willing to surrender is called “a battle of nerves” or war of nerves.
0:26 It's an idiom which means two parties are trying to defeat each other merely by threatening, using words without taking any action.
0:37 So you mean, a battle of nerves doesn't have a real face-to-face fight, right?
0:43 Correct, it's a contest in which one tries to beat the opponents by making them worried or afraid.
0:50 It's also a situation when the party waits for the other side to weaken.
0:54 For example: The border dispute between the two countries has been a battle of nerves for years.
1:01 Nice. How about this: The battle of nerves finally ended when the president stepped down from his post.
1:08 Good example. Let's listen to some conversations now.
1:18 There's been a battle of nerves going on between the school board and the teachers. I even heard they may suspend classes.
1:25 That might be good for you!
1:27 Yeah, it'll give me time to prepare my project.
1:31 Don't you think the school board is too strict with their new policies?
1:36 Yeah, we're hoping the teachers win this battle of nerves!
1:45 Mrs. Mandy's proposal ended the battle of nerves at the university.
1:50 Are they ready to accept the new curriculum?
1:53 Yeah! But it's almost time for our papers now.
1:58 Such a battle of nerves has affected the students in a negative way.
2:02 It has caused quite a commotion!
2:10 I've been in a battle of nerves with my dad about smoking.
2:14 It's really hard to get someone to quit.
2:17 We've been at it for years. I'm always nagging him about it.
2:22 I can feel the tension between you two whenever he lights up.
2:26 It's a battle I'll probably never win.
2:30 Don't give up!
2:35 There's been a battle of nerves going on between the school board and the teachers.
2:46 Yeah, we're hoping the teachers win this battle of nerves!
2:55 Mrs. Mandy's proposal ended the battle of nerves at the university.
3:04 Such a battle of nerves has affected the students in a negative way.
