  • hello everybody this is Elliott from ETJEnglish how are you all doing today now I've got an

  • interesting lesson for you i recently ran a poll on Facebook, I gave you three options

  • between three different videos that i could do for my next lesson, this lesson and the

  • winner by far was the option of phrasal verbs and i thought it would be you guys love your

  • phrasal verbs i mean you really love phrasal verbs.

  • its a little bit of a basic lesson but its still good everybody needs to know phrasal

  • verbs and for some people this might be quite an easy lesson for others it might be quite

  • challenging but i think I've got some of the most common phrasal verbs in this listening

  • practice.

  • after weve done the listening practice I’m going to explain all of the phrasal

  • verbs that i used and its also going to be useful for some of you doing the IETLS exam

  • because this topic, the morning routine that I’m going to talk about is something that

  • comes up a lot in the speaking part of the IELTS exam which is something i also teach

  • on Skype

  • so without further a do I’m gonna go and talk about my morning routine not everybody

  • uses this many phrasal verbs but I’m trying to put as many in there as i can so you can

  • understand where we use phrasal verbs and how frequently they can be used, they are

  • so common. so I’m gonna try and get all of these phrasal verbs in here I've got a

  • big list in front of me I’m going to make it up as i go along so I’m going to create

  • it, improvise and lets hope its good! SO i hope you enjoy the lesson.

  • ok so I’m going to talk to you about my morning routine and generally it all starts

  • when i get up. so usually i get up at lets say 7:25 thats when i set my alarm anyway

  • it does depend if its a weekend on a weekend i usually have a bit of a lie in so i might

  • wake up a little bit later so i can relax a bit

  • so after i’ve woken up i usually get out of bed of course and run down the stairs and

  • then i go into my kitchen and sort out my breakfast of course

  • so it depends if i have an early Skype lesson what i have for breakfast if i have an early

  • Skype lesson ill probably just fix up a quick bowl of cereal, chop up some fruit and throw

  • it in there but if i don’t have an early Skype lesson and i feel like treating myself,

  • which i know we all do sometimes i might actually cook up some bacon and eggs and have a bit

  • of an english traditional fry up its a nice treat to have sometimes i would say

  • so usually when i have my breakfast ill probably switch on the tv and catch up with the recent

  • news thats on news on the tv and enjoy my breakfast

  • i do all this before i jump in the shower, clean myself and get ready for the day

  • i think I’m quite lucky because i work from home now a lot of people usually have to get

  • ready really fast and they have to jump in a car, hop on a bus or get on a train and

  • they have to get to their place of work on time, for me i just get to sit down on this

  • chair and teach lessons on Skype now theres a lot more to it, making youtube videos and

  • things like that but yeah i think I’m quite lucky but i do try and get out of the house

  • and get some fresh air when i can because i think thats very important i might also

  • go out and get some food in for the night, for dinner.

  • but yeah, that’s generally my morning routine, thats kind of how it works i think its quite

  • normal, similar to the sort of routine that most people have

  • I’m sure you probably noticed a lot of phrasal verbs in there and yeah that was a lot of

  • phrasal verbs so I’m going to actually explain all of these phrasal verbs now and hopefully

  • you will have a bit of a better understanding of how we can use phrasal verbs and maybe

  • you might learn some new ones in here also.

  • so it all starts when i get up and thats when you open your eyes and your day begins from

  • your sleep

  • now we had lie in, a lie in is when we sleep for longer. so maybe we don’t have anything

  • to do that morning so we have a lie in which means that we just sleep for longer. and english

  • people LOVE lie ins

  • wake up of course the same as get up really it just means to open your eyes and begin

  • your day

  • get out of bed that simply means to exit your bed

  • run down the stairs now i could have said walk down the stairs i could have said race

  • down the stairs i could have said jump down the stairs, whatever you want make it sound

  • as energetic as you want i said run because maybe I’m in a rush so you can do whatever

  • you want to make your way down the stairs in the morning or in the day whenever or up

  • the stairs of course

  • sort out my breakfast and this simply means just to prepare my breakfast. I can sort out

  • anything if i want to organise it and lets say prepare something

  • fix up, similar thing but this means to actually start doing it so i started fixing up my breakfast

  • which means i started doing it, doing the action of making it and creating it from scratch

  • from the beginning

  • chop up, this means to cut my food so i chopped up some fruit, quite self explanatory. you

  • chop it. we put up at the end and its more common than just saying chop a lot of the

  • time so up can sometimes be a really common thing even without it really doesn’t need

  • to be in the word or phrase necessarily

  • i said that i throw it in, i throw my fruit in and that just means I’m adding it throw

  • it in we like to be more exciting when we talk about things in english because we don’t

  • want it to sound boring. If i just said i put my fruit in my bowl it doesn’t sound

  • as energised and exciting as when i say that i throw it in so we say that a lot!

  • and i said i cook up or fry up a fry up is traditionally an english meal an english breakfast,

  • if you don’t know what it is then google english breakfast or english fry up and i

  • said i cook it up to cook up something means to cook something so its just the action we

  • just put up on the end don’t ask me why but its normal

  • switch on the tv quite self explanatory I’m sure you know this it just means to press

  • the power button and turn it on, as it were .

  • catch up with the news that simply means to stay up to date thats another thing we can

  • say, stay up to date and that just means to be up to now, to understand everything up

  • until now to be up to date!

  • jump in i jump in the shower, i could just say i get in the shower, but i wanted it to

  • sound a bit more exciting so i said that i jump in the shower with energy.

  • get ready for the day that simply means to get your clothes on, clean your teeth, to

  • get ready for the day you can get ready for a lot of things, its usually getting changed,

  • getting dressed, ok? Get ready!

  • then i started talking about people who have to jump in a car or jump on a bus, hop on

  • a bus, get on a train all these different things we can put whatever word we want in

  • the verb section before the preposition to make it sound more exciting

  • i often say that i jump in my car if I’m going to drive somewhere so its a good one

  • to think about then i say that people have to get to their place of work and that simply

  • means that they need to arrive they need to make the journey and arrive, they have to

  • get to its like saying to get somewhere

  • on time, that simply means to arrive there at the time that you need to be there, to

  • be punctual,. to arrive on time

  • and then i said that I’m lucky and i get to just sit in my char, that's what i get

  • to do and that means thats what I’m allowed to thats what i can do, I’m able to do this,

  • i get to just sit in my chair and work

  • get out of the house, same as get out of bed, it means to exit, to leave your house so i

  • get out of my house. this one's really common

  • get some fresh air, that simply means to breathe the air in breathe all the air around you

  • in and feel it get some fresh air outdoor air

  • and i also go out and get some food in, of course i get some food in. which usually we

  • say this when we get food from the outside from a shop and we get it in our house to

  • then cook for dinner later so someone might say have you got any food in yet and that

  • means do you have any ingredients and food ready to cook for your dinner tonight. so

  • food in, get your food in

  • and there you go

  • so i hope you found this list of phrasal verbs useful like i said for some people this is

  • quite basic for some people this is quite advanced but what i recommend is now that

  • I've taught you all of these phrasal verbs youve heard them hopefully youve written

  • them down and remembered them. now i recommend that you listen to my piece of speech again

  • that i just read out. and i recommend that you actually listen to those phrasal verbs

  • again, try and remember what i just explained and see how much better you understand them.

  • feel free to share your morning routine using as many phrasal verbs as you can in the comment

  • section below

  • now remember there’s loads of other phrasal verbs, there’s so many you can use some

  • of these ones that I've talked about have multiple meanings, but ive just taught you

  • in context here. so just in the context of talking about the morning routine.

  • anyway, i hope you enjoyed the lesson guys please give me a thumbs up, it really helps
