Bear with me
"Bear with me" is a phrase that we can use to ask someone to give us time, i.e. "be patient".
For example: "Bear with me for a moment while I check my calendar, please."
Try and use it next time you want to say "Please wait"
"Big deal" can be used to talk about something which had been exaggerated or that we don't think is so important.
For example: Your friend tells you they just got a new phone, but you are not really impressed. You reply, "Big deal, it's just a phone...."
Or, your friend surprises you for your birthday with a huge cake and party with 50 friends. They made a "big deal" of your birthday. (You think they did too much for this event.)
As per request we are launching a regular Saturday "conversation only" class, similar to our Freetalk sessions held over the past 6 months.
There are 3 available Saturdays next month so I have reserved the following times in June for the Saturday afternoon 90 minute conversation session.
June 1 4:00pm - 5:30pm
June 8 4:00pm - 5:30pm
June 22 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Some of you may not be able to attend every time so I have decided it is possible to subscribe in two patterns:
1. Pay as you go - 2,000 yen each time (payable at the lesson)
2. Monthly subscription (for June) - 4,500 yen (payable at the beginning of the month)
The main points of the session:
1. Lot's of talking
2. Relaxed atmosphere
3. 90 minutes duration
4. No preparation, no homework
5. Just come, bring a friend and have fun!

This means: As soon as possible. This is pronounced either as A-S-A-P or A-SAP.
We can use it like this.
"Can you send me your monthly fees ASAP?"
Another day, another dollar
We use this phrase after finishing a hard days work.
For example: Well, another day, another dollar. Let's go home now.
We can also use it like that's too bad, or it can't be helped.
For example: "Ah well, another day, another dollar...."
Try to use it sometime....
