Feifei: And I'm Feifei. We're at a very nice party.

Waiter: Champagne?

Feifei: Oh, yes please.

Finn: Oh, this party is full of famous actors, actresses and film directors.

Feifei: Very glamorous. (whispering) Oh look, there's... what's his name again? And what is he wearing?

Finn: Oh yes. What is he wearing? A bright purple suit...

Feifei: And pink leather boots...!

Finn: Yes! And he's got a few awards under his belt, hasn't he? Very successful...

Feifei: Under his belt? How do you know what he's got under his belt? I mean, we can see the purple suit and pink shoes, but...

Finn: No, no. If you say someone has something under their belt, it means they have a particular experience already - something that might help them in the future. So, in this case, he has the experience of winning a few awards already.

Feifei: I think we need some examples to make that clearer.
•After the new football manager had a few wins under his belt, he felt more confident.
•I think Madeleine would be a great leader. She has so much experience under her belt.

Finn: Now we've got some examples under our belt - is it easier to understand?

Feifei: Yes, thanks! Oh Finn, he's coming over - that famous actor.

Famous actor: Hi. I saw you chatting over there and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Willy Wards.

Feifei: Lovely to meet you. My friend Finn says you've won lots of awards?

Famous actor: I have. Would you like to see them?

Feifei: Erm... OK?

Famous actor: I always keep them with me. They're right here... under my belt.

Finn: Oh I'm sorry, I think we have the wrong guy. Time to go Feifei! Bye!

Famous actor: But I really do keep them under my belt! Do join us again next time for The English We Speak.
