That's Just My Two Cents

Welcome to English in a Minute.

If you have ever heard American English, you have probably heard this before: That's Just My Two Cents.

Does it make you wonder what pennies have to do with giving someone advice? Let's listen and find out.

A: I love Nicklback.
B: I think their music is really boring...and everybody does not like them...but that's just my two cents.

"My Two Cents" is a different way of saying "my opinion" or "my thoughts on the subject."

Two cents isn't a lot of money. Saying something is "just my two cents," is like saying that your opinion is important to you, but might not be worth much to someone else.

Not everyone will always agree with you, so saying this lets people konw that.

And that's English in a Minute.
