English in a minute: Call it a day

Welcome to English in a Minute, where we teach
you all about idioms in American English.

Let’s say you have worked all day, and you are
really tired, like these people:

#1: I am exhausted. I have been working at this
since 7:00 a.m. this morning.

#2: Me, too. I think it’s time we call it a day.

#1: I agree. Let’s go home.

When you “call it a day” in American English,
it means you are ending work, play, or
something you are doing that day. Often, it
means you have finished you work, and you
are going home. You can use this phrase in
any situation, and everybody in America will
understand you.
And that’s English in a Minute!
