  • Hi, this is Kee from BBC Learning English.

  • Today I'm going to tell you three different

  • ways of using the phrasal verb take off.

  • First, we use take off to describe removing clothing.

  • It's really hot here so I'm going to take off my jumper.

  • You can also separate take and off and say:

  • take my jumper off.

  • Second, we use take off to describe

  • something becoming successful.

  • I'm going to be rich.

  • My business has taken off.

  • Third, we use take off to describe not going to work.

  • I'm going to take a day off work tomorrow.

  • So, we can say:

  • take off my jumper, or take my jumper off.

  • My business has taken off.

  • And lastly, take a day off.
