  • I just stood up.

  • It's a phrase of her because it has a verb stand in the past tense and then up.

  • And Fraser verbs are terrible.

  • Um, when we use them all the time, it's very confusing.

  • And you have to know them.

  • If you want to become fluent in English and understand what people around you are saying and become a wonderful English speaker, you have to learn these crazy phrase of verbs a phrase a verb is a verb with a proposition.

  • Down, up by with 24 take a verb and stick all of these propositions in front of them behind them.

  • And you've got a whole new word.

  • It's just the birth of phrase of ribs.

  • I bet you wish that they were never born.

  • Highest insult ever given to phrase of herbs.

  • I'm gonna walk you through some of the fun ones with stand.

  • They're so fun.

  • So how Ronnie, did you come up with this lesson?

  • Why did you to stand okay.

  • Answer.

  • I was watching a movie called Stand By Me.

  • Oh, there's an entire movie based on a phrase a verb.

  • Wow.

  • So then I thought Damn.

  • Do you know what people need to know what this movie is about.

  • Have you watched that movie classic 19 eighties Great movie had some really, really young actors in it that have now become more famous or died.

  • But I really recommend the movie Stand by Me, and what the story is about is a group of young boys who I'm not going to give away the ending because I don't remember the ending our group of boys who think that they have found a dead body.

  • Somebody found a dead body and they go unless that boy adventure to find the dead body and look at it cool.

  • I don't know if they ever found the dead body, because I didn't watch the end of the movie.

  • But stand by me means that the boys will always support each other.

  • This is one of our phase of ribs.

  • Stand by me.

  • Also a song.

  • Okay, it's been redone, but I think it's Otis Redding.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, people, please.

  • In the comments, Ronnie wasn't Otis Redding.

  • It was whose song, the classic song Stand By Me.

  • It's been covered 1000 times, so I only need the original thank you standby mean means to support someone.

  • If we take after me, we just have standby.

  • And that means weight.

  • So you can fly on standby, which is a noun or adjective.

  • And that means you have to wait for the airplane because the airplanes late.

  • So if you stand by, it means you're waiting for someone.

  • But if you're standing by me means we're together and we're not waiting, so be careful about that one.

  • You can stand with someone this quite physically means that you're going to stand beside the person.

  • Hey, how you doing?

  • Good.

  • But in an more unf is ical, meaning it means that you're going to support the person.

  • So let's say that someone is at your office or one of your friends has a strong political statement and you're like, You know what?

  • I agree with you.

  • I'm going to stand with you on this subject.

  • I'm going to support you.

  • So stand with someone and stand by.

  • Someone means the same.

  • This is more casual, friendship, love.

  • This is more political.

  • I think, Um oh, I hate this.

  • Stand over someone, someone or so, Yeah, Someone looks okay to look over someone's shoulder.

  • I remember in school I was doing my work was the promise.

  • I was doing my work and the teacher would come and literally stand behind me and look over my shoulder to see what I was doing.

  • I'm doing private things, Teacher.

  • Do people do this to you?

  • Please keep your distance.

  • Stand back.

  • Good.

  • I can do my work.

  • I wasn't doing my work.

  • I can do my work without you watching me.

  • When you watch me do my work, I get nervous and I stopped.

  • So to stand over someone.

  • It's not a comfortable situation for the the person sitting down, okay.

  • And the next one is a very curious word if I take out the space here, so I use it as one word standoff.

  • It's actually a noun, and it means a confrontation.

  • Um, in Canada, we have confrontations between political parties.

  • We have confrontations between people.

  • Um, but we usually use it for groups of people.

  • Native indigenous people in Canada will have a stand off against the government for their equal rights.

  • Um, as a phrase, a verb we can say stand off to the side.

  • Oh, so if I stand off to the side.

  • That's it's a bad thing.

  • Don't stand on people's heads.

  • You can stand on many things, but quite dangerous.

  • So keep your feet on the floor, stand on the floor.

  • Next one, we have stand up.

  • So that's what I said in the beginning of the video.

  • I said, Oh, I stood up.

  • This is the present tense.

  • Stand up, basically, is the opposite of sit down because you're moving from a position of up to down.

  • So a lot of the times, in different situations, someone said, Hey, stand up, Okay, great.

  • Got it if we had four is still a phrase over.

  • But we stand up for something.

  • This means I defend something So I will stand up for women's rights.

  • Okay, so you say.

  • Oh, um, also politically, the Prime Minister stood down from his position.

  • Why did he do that?

  • I would like to know.

  • Also stand down.

  • Ironically means that you choose not to fight.

  • Or is that the same?

  • So if you stand down from something in a job, it means you leave a high position.
