Meaning of I’M ALL FOR IT and I’M ALL IN – A Short English Lesson with Subtitles


So in English, when
you say, “I’m all for it!”, it means that you’re saying yes, but you’re saying it
in an enthusiastic way. It means that you are pretty excited about whatever someone
is suggesting to you. If Jen was to say to me I
think we should buy a boat so that we can go boating on the river, I could respond by saying, “I’m all for it!”, although I don’t really
wanna spend money on a boat, but if I was excited about buying a boat so that we could go on
the river with a boat, I would respond to Jen
by saying, “I’m all for it!”, and again, that simply
means not only do I agree, but I agree wholeheartedly. Did I do that phrase yet, wholeheartedly? When you agree wholeheartedly, it means that you definitely agree. So once again, if you were to agree with someone enthusiastically, if you were super happy about what someone is suggesting to you, you could say to them, “I’m all for it!”, and then they’ll know for
sure that you agree with them. We have another phrase that means almost exactly the same thing. In fact, it’s pretty much
a direct replacement. You could say, “I’m all in!” So if Jen, again, was to
say we should buy a boat… Maybe we should buy a canoe. We should buy a boat so we
can go boating on the river, I could say, “I’m all in!” I’m totally into that, and
that would mean that I agree with her, and I’m excited,
and I would want to do that. Should we buy a boat? Right now, the river is frozen solid. I think it would be a little
difficult to go boating. It might be easier to go
ice-skating right now, but I think the ice is
a little bit too thin. Anyways, if you say to someone
in English, “I’m all for it!” or if you say to them
in English, “I’m all in!”, it means that you agree with them, and you would be happy to do what they are suggesting that you do. Anyways, I’m Bob the Canadian, and you’re learning
English with me every day. I hope you’re having a good day.

  1. Tq sir ..is there sentence formation like
    " can we be done ?" If it's in the language then what's the meaning?
    Negative form is
    " We can't be done ."

  2. Awsome lessons! I’m continue learning English with you. I ’m looking forward seeing your next video.Have a wonderful day!

  3. I know that there's a difference between a spoken and a written language, but you say on the video (around 30s) 'if I was …'
    Isn't that the second conditional? Shouldn't it be 'if I were..?'
    I've already listened to a lot of songs in which the singers don't consider this aspect of the English grammar. Is it normal in spoken English?
    BTW, I am a big fan of your channel! I watch it attentively everyday and I recommend you to all my friends here in Brazil.

  4. I'm all in=I'm all for it=I totally agree —> CI STO! SONO D'ACCORDO AL 100% ; but "I'm into it" has a slightly different meaning = I'm interested/passionate/involved 😉 That's it, all in all 😉

  5. Thanks For the lesson Teacher Bob!!Hey, are you down for a hockey game tomorrow?I'm all for it!!
