Hello-hello! You know I’m Nadia and I continue speaking with you about idioms. So today we speak about a very popular idiom ‘ That makes two of us’.
It’s very easy in some way. For example, if somebody says ‘Mm ..I like Brad Pitt!’ And you want to say ‘Me too’ or ‘So do I’. But if you want to say it in an original way you also can say ‘That makes two of us!’. It means ‘I agree with you, I have the same opinion about this point like you do’
‘(About Justin Bieber) – Now the last time he was on he and I got to a conversation. He said something then I said something, he said something and I said something, and I made him cry. – Well, then that makes two of us’
For example, I hate Keanu Reeves! And you say ‘That makes two of us! I also hate him or I hate him too!’
‘– I have a confession. I didn’t wanna go out with you tonight. – That makes two of us. – But I’m really glad that I did! – That makes two of us!’
Or you can use it in any tense. Grammatically it’s always the same. That makes two of us. But also if two people are speaking. For example, one person says ‘ Oh, you know, I love Brad Pitt’. The second person also says ‘ I love him too’ , and you come over to them and you say ‘That makes three of us! Because at this moment three people have the same opinion about this point.
So actually you can do it, you can just count numbers ‘ That makes four of us, that makes fifteen of us, if you want to count all those people.
So I hope that was useful for you and from now on you’re going to understand it. Bye-bye!
