So then I just got out of
there as soon as I could.

It was... It was a
terrible scene.

Okay, you ready for this?
Let's do it.
Hey, everyone.
I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking,
and welcome to this lesson on:
"Phrasal Verb Opposites".

So, today with the help of my friend, Steve
the spider, I am going to look at...

How many?
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
nine, 10 - 10 phrasal verbs and their opposites

for a total of 20 phrasal verbs.
That is more phrasal verbs
than Steve has legs.

More phrasal verbs
than Steve has legs.

So, we'll start from the top.
First: "check in"
or "check into".

So you can check into a hotel
when you first arrive.

Say: "I'm here to check in."
Now, when you check in, obviously, when you
finish your stay at a hotel you have to

"check out" or "check
out of" the hotel.

So, Steve, remember that time when we drove
down to the States, we went to Fun Spot which

is the biggest arcade in the world, we
checked into the Holiday Inn on a Friday,

and we checked out on a Sunday?
It was a good time.
I played Pac-Man Mania
for like four hours

Next, we have: "get in".
So, "to get in", specifically into an enclosed
space like a room or a car, or "get into",

the opposite is: "get out" or "get
out of" a place or something.

So, in a car, for example: "I got
into the car. She got into the taxi."

So you get into a taxi or into a car,
and then to leave you have to get out.

Now, you can also be inside your house, and you can
tell someone, it's like: "Get in, get in, get in."

Or if you're very angry at
them, you can say: "Get out!"

Like that one time,
remember that?

You know what I'm talking about.
All right, next: "get
on" or "get onto",

"get off" or "get off of".
Now, this is specifically
for public transportation.

So, you can get on or get onto a
bus, a train, a plane, a boat.

And then when you leave the bus, leave the
train, leave the boat, leave the plane, you

get off the plane, get off the boat, or get
off of the bus, or the subway, or the metro.

So, you get on the metro, the trip
is finished, get off the metro.

Depending on which part of the world you're
from, you might say the metro or the subway.

I say metro because I work around Montreal, but
if you go to Toronto most people say subway,

so it depends where you're from.
Next: "go out" and "stay in".
So this means...
"To go out" means to go see a movie, go outside
of your house on the weekend, and do something

with your friends.
So after this, Steve and I are going to
go out and have a little party somewhere.

Don't know where.
We haven't decided yet, but we got some friends
waiting for us outside and we'll decide after.

Now, if you don't want to go out and you prefer
a quiet night in your house, in your room

like Steve listening to Pink Floyd in his
bedroom while staring up at the ceiling,

then you stay in.
So your friends ask you: "Hey.
Do you want go out tonight?"

Say: "No, no.
Pink Floyd.
I'm going to stay in.
I need to take in this music."
Next: "pick up" and "put down".
So, very literal.
Pick up, put down.
Pick up, put down.
So you can pick up a
glass, put down a glass.

Pick up a pencil,
put down a pencil.

And this is another meaning of "pick up",
so we have "pick up" and "drop off".

In this situation "pick up" can mean to get
something or someone from a specific location.

So you can pick up someone
from the daycare.

If you are a parent and you have a young child,
you can pick them up from the daycare, at

the end of the day you get them.
You can drop them off at the daycare in the
morning, meaning you leave them there.

For example, after work if you're calling
your friend, your mom, your roommate, your

wife, your husband and they say:
-"Hey. What time are
you going to be home?"

I'm going to be a little late.
First I need to drop something off at
the bank"-maybe a bill you have to pay-

"and I need to pick up something
from the grocery store."

So maybe you are out of milk, you have no
more milk so you need to pick up some milk

from the grocery store.
And, again, "drop off" not just for people,
not just for kids, it can be for things, too.

Both of them can be for things.
So you can drop off money at someone's house, or
drop off a CD, or drop off movie tickets somewhere.

"Put on", "take off".
So this is largely for clothes.
Right? So you can put on your
socks, take off your socks.

Put on your jacket,
take off your jacket.

Now, Steve after about one beer
likes to take off his clothes.

I know he doesn't...
He's not wearing clothes now.
He looks good naked, anyways.
Spiders look good naked.
That's a weird sentence.
I'm sorry.

But we'll...
We'll stop there.
I don't want to
continue that story.

So: "slow down".
The opposite of "to slow down" is
"to speed up", hurry up, go faster.

So if you're driving and, you know, you're
driving with a friend, your friend might say:

"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down. You
don't want the police to stop you."

If you are late for something,
your friend might say: "Speed up."

Okay? "We need to go quicker."
"Stay up" and "turn in".
This has a very
specific context.

So, "to stay up" means to not go to
sleep, but to say awake at night.

So, for example, last night I stayed up until
1am playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends.

It's not true, but imagine.
So we stayed up until 2 o'clock watching old
movies, old horror movies, for example.

Now, if you don't want to stay up, don't
want to stay awake, you can turn in.

"To turn in" means to
go to bed, go to sleep.

So, I stayed up until 11, which
means I turned in at 11.

I went to sleep at 11.
And finally, "turn
up", "turn down".

Very specific context.
If you have, you know, a stereo system, you
can turn up the volume, make it louder, or

turn down the volume,
make it softer, quieter.

Steve, turn that down.
So, those are 20 phrasal verbs.
I know it's a lot.
Again, more phrasal verbs
than Steve has legs.
