Learn the English Phrases TOO LITTLE TOO LATE and BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

Read along to learn the English phrases TOO LITTLE TOO LATE and BETTER LATE THAN NEVERIn this English lesson, I wanted to help you learn the English phrase too little too late. When we say that somebody does something and that it's too little too late, it means that they're not doing enough, and they're starting to do it later than they should have. Many people in Ontario, Canada right now believe that the current lockdown that we're in is too little too late. That means that they don't think the government has closed enough things, and they don't think that the lockdown started early enough. There's many things in life where people believe that it is too little too late. So not enough is being done, and the time when that has been started is too late in people's opinions. So I think it's fine, but some people think it's too little too late.WANT FREE ENGLISH LESSONS?

Now, I did teach this phrase a couple of years ago but I thought it was worse... It was worse. I thought it was worth reviewing. Better late than never applies to this video in particular. Sometimes it's better to do something late than to not do it at all. You'll probably notice that this English lesson is a few hours late. It's actually early Monday morning right now. I usually do these the day before, and they come out in the night when I'm sleeping, but I thought it's better late than never. I thought I should get up, get outside, and do this English lesson, so you at least have a Monday English lesson to watch. So definitely this is a situation where it's better late than never. It's better to do it than to not do it at all.So let's review. When you say too little too late, you're referring to someone or some organization that does something, and what they're doing isn't enough, in your opinion, and you also think they're doing it later than they should have. And when you say better late than never, you're basically saying sometimes it's better to do something than to not do it at all. Sometimes when people show up somewhere late, they'll say, "Well, I'm here, but better late than never." Basically what they mean, "It's better that I came instead of just staying home and not coming at all."But hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video. This comment is from Reder. I'm hoping I'm pronouncing your name correct. I'm hoping I'm pronouncing your name correctly. And Reder says this. "I'm wondering why the way you pronounce Niagara is so different from online English dictionaries." And my response was this. "I have a bit of a regional accent. People in my area, when speaking quickly..." Hello, cat. "Say it that way. It is the same with Toronto. When we say it quickly, we forget a few letters."So I have, thanks Reder, by the way, for that comment. I have a Southern Ontario accent, probably an Ontario accent. That's the province I live in, and it comes out a lot when I say the names of local areas. So a lot of you are familiar with Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls is close to my house, but when I speak quickly and when I speak normally, I say Nagra Falls. I hardly... I hardly. I hardly pronounce the N-I-A. It sounds more like an A, Niagara Falls. So I go to Niagara Falls a lot. When people visit me from far away, I take them to see Niagara Falls.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/bobthecanadian)
