Welcome to English in a Minute, where we teach you all about idioms in American English.
Have you ever heard this before?
I'm starving, Let's grab a bite.
If someone has ever told you in English that they were going to "grab a bite", and you were confused, this is the right program for you.
A: All this talk about food is making me hungry.
B: Yeah, I'm starving too!
A: Do you wanna grab a bite?
B: Sounds good.
In American English, when you say you want to "grab a bite", is means that you want to eat right away, or that you're interested in eating quickly.
If you want to make plans, or sit down and have a nice, fancy meal at a famous restaurant, you may want to say something else instead!
And that's English in a Minute.
