I COULDN’T TELL YA!
We use the phrase “I couldn’t tell ya!” when we don’t know someting, especially when someone asks us a question but we just don’t know the answer. “I couldn’t tell ya!” means, “I don’t know” or “I have no idea.”
- How many cats live in Brooklyn? I couldn’t tell ya!
- I couldn’t tell ya how many times the trains here are behind schedule.
- The nearest flower shop? Sorry, I couldn’t tell ya.Can you think of an example?
How about you? Can you think of an example?

Everything Your GRAMMAR BOOK Didn’t Teach You
Yes, your grammar book probably taught you the difference between during and while, but it probably didn’t teach you how we actually use those words in everyday English. This book does!
You’ll also learn how to really use phrases such as:
- By Friday and Until Friday
- In the end and At the end
- I’m bored and I’m boring
- Even if and Even though
- Just and Only
- Much and Many
- Stop doing it and Stop to do it…and so much more!
You’ll also learn how to use causatives, conditionals, frequency adverbs, modal verbs, articles, and prepositions.
