Hey there! What's up? Welcome to Go Natural English.
I'm here with you today on my porch. It's a beautiful evening.
It's a great time to talk about how you can improve your English fluency with the top
10 phrasal verbs. So, I'd like to share these with you.
I'm not holding back any secrets. These are the top ten phrasal verbs that you
need to know and examples of each. Now, first of all a phrasal verb is a verb
plus a preposition. And often in English, that preposition will
change the meaning of the verb. So, for example, "get" usually means "to receive
something". But, for example, if I say, "Get out", it
means "Leave, exit". So, the meaning is different.
I think you can see how a phrasal verb is different.
And what's really special and interesting about phrasal verbs is that native speakers
use them all the time. We use them a lot more than a more formal
version of the verb, like "leave'. I would tell my friend "Get out", I wouldn't
say "Leave". Well, that would be kind of rude in either
situation. But anyway, what I want to help you out with
are the top ten phrasal verbs. And this episode is just scratching the surface.
These are all phrasal verbs that are included in the new Go Natural English course that
the GNE team and I are working on really, really hard right now so that we can release
it early next year and so that you can be a part of it.
So, this course covers a lot of areas. The phrasal verbs are one of five things that
you're going to learn in the course. It's going to be super awesome.
So, I just wanted to mention that I'm working hard on it, and I hope that you'll keep your
eyes open to find out more about it. So, let's start with the ten verbs.
The first one, "come". So, for example, "come by" means "to find".
"Hey, did you come by my keys anywhere? I can't find them anywhere."
The next one is "get". "Get by" means "to do the minimum amount of
work required." For example, "I'm just getting by in my English
class, because I never do my homework. But I participate in class, so I'm doing okay,
I'm getting by, I"ll have a passing grade." "Make for".
I say, "Make for the hills." That means "Run, run away."
"Make for" is to go in a specific direction. "Go for" is different.
You think that since "make for" means "go", "go for" would mean the same thing?
It doesn't. Of course not. "Go for" means "to pursue something".
"Hey, I think I'm going to go for a degree program."
"Put". "Put up" means "to withstand something".
"I can put up with hot weather better than cold weather."
"Take up" means "to start or to begin something". "So, I'm thinking about taking up a new hobby.
I really like sports, so maybe I'll take up a new sport."
"Break". "Break into" means like when a robber enters
your house without permission. They break in or break into a house.
"Look into" means "to research something". "Oh, let's find some information about the
best place to travel over a next vacation." "I'll look into it."
"Pull up". "Pull up" means "to find", maybe "to research
and to find some information". "Did you know the information, the phone number
for that restaurant I want to go to?" "I'll pull up the information."
"Pick up" is "to start something". So, I mentioned "I'm going to take up a new
hobby." Well, "pick up" is similar.
"I'm going to pick up a new hobby." "Set on".
"Set on" can be "to feel determined". "I'm set on helping you to become fluent in
English if you'll let me." "Keep on", our last one.
"Keep on" is "to continue". So, I want to encourage you to keep on going
with your English fluency. I hope that you found these ten phrasal verbs
really helpful. And what I want to remind you of is that these
are only one example. I only shared one example, one phrasal verb
for each regular verb. What I mean is you can have many different
combinations with a verb plus a preposition to make a phrasal verb.
For example, with "get". I gave you the example of "get by" and "get
out", but there's a lot of different ways to use "get", like "get into", "get up", "get
down" and so on. There's a lot: "to get around"
There's a lot of different phrasal verbs that you can use with a different combinations
of prepositions. So, it's kind of fun.
But they're essential for understanding native English speakers, and they're really essential
for you to be able sound more natural like a native English speaker yourself.
So, if you want to learn more, there's one thing you need to do right now.
