Welcome to English in a Minute!
If you have heard American English
Maybe you heard this phrase
Does this mean something was on fire and is now out?
Or it means totally tired?
See if you can tell.Listen:
Sara got so burned out spending so much time volunteering at the hospital
She is really going to need a vacation
Burned out means you are very tired
It means you have lost interest in something
that is because you have done too much of the same thing
it is like a light bulb but stop lighting
because the energy is use up inside
Now it’s your turn to think of ways to use burned out
