Transcript of the video

Hello everyone, I hope you are well.

Today, I'm back with you for a French expression in a few minutes.

If you are new to the channel, before you start, consider subscribing right away so you don't miss any videos.

So, the phrase we're going to see today is "being on the ball."

Being on fire is a colloquial expression to say that you are super motivated, that you have plenty of energy, as if you had seen a Red Bull or taken plenty of vitamin C.

We have, we're bursting with energy and I'm going to give you some context to help you better understand the phrase and more importantly, so that you can use it in sentences yourself. Here's an example this morning, I'm on a roll. I've already been running for two hours and swimming for an hour and now I think I'm going to bake cookies for the whole family. I have too much energy. Here's a second example. For example, if I had a, I had a job interview this morning, I can say I was on my game.

During the interview, I answered all the questions. Very good. I'm sure I'll get the job. I was too motivated to get the job. That's it for the phrase of the day. Feel free to comment on sentences where you use this expression. Be on the lookout to learn how to use it. I say to you all a very nice day and I say to you very soon for a new video. Have a nice day!
