You will hear this phrase a lot in English. Sometimes teachers will say to each other, hey, are you all set to teach this afternoon? And that teacher who is answering the question will say, yep, I'm all set, meaning that they are totally ready to do what they need to do.

When somebody is set on something it means that they are committed to doing it. It means that they have decided to do it. Let's say, let me give you an example. When I was a teenager, I decided I was going to buy a motorcycle. I was set on buying a motorcycle. My mum and dad did not want me to buy a motorcycle but I was set on it. When you are set on something it means that you are absolutely planning to do that thing that you are thinking of doing. I didn't ask the cats to come out today, they just happened to be here. I know in the last video people were happy 'cause there was a wasp I think, yeah, wasp or hornet. But yes, the cats just appeared. I don't make them be in the video. If I did I might have to pay them I think.Anyways, to review when you are all set it means that you are ready to do something. If you are buying a new vehicle, you'd want to make sure that you have enough money and you'd wanna pick out a video, a video, a vehicle and then you would be all set to buy that vehicle. And if you to be set on something means that you have decided to do something and you're not going to change your mind, you are absolutely 100% going to do it.Hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video and this comment is from Daniel. And Daniel says this, what's the difference between a wasp and a hornet. And my response was we regularly use either word for the same insect although scientifically they are different, I think hornets are bigger.So thanks Daniel for that comment referring once again to the hornet that flew by or the wasp that flew by a few videos ago. I think it was a wasp, I think hornets are bigger but I have to confess I don't know a lot about the insects that are around us. I know enough to say that it wasn't a bee, it was definitely a wasp or a hornet. I'm pretty sure it was a wasp because I think hornets have a lot more color to them. I think they have rings of black and yellow on the back of their body but I'm pretty sure, I'm pretty sure that a wasp. I've almost said hornet. I'm pretty sure it was a wasp.Support the show (
