    Exclamation You're on! I'd like that.

    what does a person mean by telling that? You're on?!

    ONLY A NON-TEACHER'S OPINION

    Tom: What's up?

    Joe: I'm afraid that I'm going to fail my big English test tomorrow because I haven't

    really studied much for it.

    Tom: Tell you what, dude. I'll come over to your place at 8 p.m., and I'll

    help you prepare for the test. As you know, my English is pretty good because I spent

    three years in the States.

    Joe: You're on, man. ( = I happily accept what you have just suggested.)

    A better way to ask the question would be
