Saskia
Hi! I'm Saskia from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to tell you 4 ways to use the word 'just' as an adverb.

One way we use 'just' is for things happening at this moment.

Patrick
Do you want to go for a coffee?

Saskia
Hang on! I'm just finishing this video.

'Just' can also mean 'only'. This book cost me just one pound.

Patrick
Wow that was cheap!

Saskia
'Just' often means 'exactly'.

Patrick
What time is it?

Saskia
It's just four o'clock.

Patrick
Saskia, here's a present for you.

Saskia
Thanks! It's just what I wanted!

You can also use 'just' to emphasise other words and expressions. I just love this shirt!

So that's four ways to use 'just'. Just in time! I'd better go for that coffee!
