When you lease something, you rent it for a closed period of time. Notice the following:

  1. I have a two-year lease on my car.
  2. When you lease a car, you have to give it back eventually.


You must pay utilities like internet, water, etc.

Utilities are costs like water, electricty, and garbage collection. Notice the following:

  1. We split the utility bill.
  2. My utilities are 50 bucks a month.

The phrase, 'we can go from there' means you can start something and make final decisions later. Notice the following:

  1. Let's go to the beach first and then we can go from there ( i.e. decide where to go next later )
  2. For your first job, you can organize the files and then we can go from there on what to do next. ( i.e. decide what to do next later )

I've been told

  1. I've been told New York is very expensive.
  2. I've been told Bangkok is now a very modern city.

meet up

The phrase 'meet up' means 'get together' to do something. Notice the following:
