Running out of and out of

 

 

Hello-hello! Today I’m gonna tell you about two idioms, and you will learn how to use both of them. So the first idiom is ‘I’M RUNNING OUT OF SOMETHING’ and the second idiom is ‘I’M OUT OF SOMETHING’.

So, for example, you open your fridge, you look inside and you see that you have just a little bit of milk. It means that you almost don’t have milk, but you still have, you still do. So you say ‘I’m running out of milk’. It means you have just a little bit of something. 

The same you can say with time. For example, you have only ten minutes before your English class. You don’t have enough time to finish your homework and you’re very nervous and you say ‘I’m running out of time’. The same with any product, with time, with money…

‘I’m running out of time

Searching for you smile

To feel your heart

Beating next to mine

I’m running out of time

Searching for you smile

To feel your heart

Beating next to mine’

 

And the same situation: you open your fridge and you see that you have an empty pack of milk. You don’t have milk anymore. At all! In this case you say ‘I’m out of milk’. The same – you open your wallet and you see that you don’t have any cash. And you say ‘I am out of cash’. I’m out of time, I’m out of money, I’m out of coffee, I’m out of milk. You can use all of them. 

So let’s check the result of this video and when you say that you have just a little bit of something – you say ‘I’m running out of something’. And when you don’t have this product – this something anymore, you say I’m out of something. I hope that was useful for you. It’s very popular, so you should use it! Bye-bye!
