🇬🇧🇬🇧 English Phrase Time!! 🇬🇧🇬🇧 (C2+ difficulty)

Something Along Those Lines

"I was thinking of getting a new car, but something small like a Fiesta or a Corsa, something along those lines"

"something along these/those lines"is used as an alternative to saying "something like that" and simply means "similar to something else". Both can be used interchangeably but this phrase can be used to sound a little more advanced as well as enriching your vocabulary.

" My brother works in the hospital as a nurse, and I’m hoping to do something along those lines too..."
(My brother works in the hospital as a nurse, and I’m hoping to do something like that too)

Waitress- "and what would you like to drink?"
David- "could I get a Diet Coke or Coke Zero please, something along those lines"

"I really liked the cake we had at your birthday. I want to get something along those lines at my party too"


Now it's your turn using "along those lines" and I'll correct all your mistakes! :)

    So, it will be something like "I would like to visit some Asiatic countries, Japan, Korea, Thailand... Something along these lines" (?)

    @Yerlan Perfect example!!!! "...for my pc either THE Asus or THE Nvidia" :) if you are actually building a pc Nvidia cards are so much better 😉

    @Jessie that's very good! However that would be "someone like that" in your example! :) It had to question myself whether it made sense but yeah unfortunately it's also something and never someone :)

    In Russian the phrase would sound as "Что-то в этом духе", "что-то в этом роде" and (slang) "что-то типа того" "Мой брат работает в госпитале. Я хочу заниматься чем-то в этом духе"

    "What dessert would you like?", asked my mother. "Probably a biscuit cake or an apple pie, something along these lines", I replied.
