"Excuse Me" - 5 Times To Say It

"Excuse me" is a common English phrase. The four times we can use this phrase are:
  1. To get someone's attention 
  2. To squeeze past someone or if you bump into someone 
  3. When you need something repeated 
  4. When you burp (sneeze, make body noises) 
  5. When being sarcastic (see video!) 
To learn how to pronounce this word and see real-life examples of when the phrase is used, watch the video below.
