  • Hello Everybody!

  • My name is Steve Ford and one of my favorite times of the year has arrived

  • the Fall

  • So youre walking down the street and this guy calls you over

  • hey, you wanna buy a watch real cheap?

  • ah no!

  • it's brand-new

  • I’m not falling for that one!

  • Explanation: to fall for something means to believe something that is NOT true

  • I remember I had this buddy of mineGreg

  • and we were at a street festival in my hometown

  • I was young, naïve, and I had just bought some cotton candy

  • And he said, “hey look over there

  • I did, and he took a handful of my cotton candy

  • Then he tried doing it again, “hey look at that!”

  • And I said, “I’m not falling for it

  • Fall out: When youre a kid

  • your baby teeth fall out

  • here in North America the tooth fairy comes aka your parents

  • and if you put your tooth under your pillow

  • the next morning you'll find a coin

  • Fall out can be used figuratively too

  • You can fall out with someone,

  • or you have a falling-out with someone meaning you argue with someone

  • and never really get along with them

  • Now people can go on Facebook to check back on all those

  • ex-friends they fell out with to see what they are up to

  • what's he up to?

  • Fall apart: we all know that things get old and fall apart like cars

  • Now my grandpa, God rest his soul lived through the great depression

  • and he was of the mindset, way of thinking,

  • that if you had something to use, you had to use it ENTIRELY until it was unusable

  • So he had a comfortable lifestyle

  • but would drive a car until it iterally would fall apart

  • I mean until the bottom of the car was falling out

  • Now picture yourself in the middle of a cold winter

  • driving a car where the bottom falls out.

  • Fall apart can also be used figuratively too.

  • It means to become emotionally upset, unable to function normally.

  • I'm falling apart!

  • Now our next phrasal verb is longer

  • When I make plans, I always try to have a plan B,C,D,

  • I always try to have another plan to fall back on

  • So do my online students, theyll tell you

  • I was once giving a test preparation class to a student in a hotel room

  • and his internet connection was really bad.

  • So we had to find a solution to fall back on since his test day was the next day

  • So he said, “Steve give me 5 minutesand rushed out to a bar across the street

  • with a wi-fi connection

  • So here we are practicing for the TOEFL

  • question number 1

  • question number 2

  • so we got through it and he passed the TOEFL

  • and is on to bigger and better things.

  • Well everybody, I know how important phrasal verbs are, I really do!
