  • Hi this is Tutor Nick and this is Verb Phrase 110. Okay.

  • The verb phrase today is to spring up. Okay. Let's take a look at the note. If

  • something springs up, it appears or comes into being very

  • suddenly. Or we have a second meaning here. To move upward or rise or sprout.

  • You know, just all kind of ... it seems like they all come up very quickly within a

  • short period of time. So let's look at number one. There have been new locations

  • of that chain store springing up throughout the city. Sometimes you see

  • this like if a new chain store came around your neighborhood and suddenly... Oh

  • wow ! They open one there or they opened another location there and then and then

  • now they're going to open another one here. So within you know, a short period

  • of time within four five six months suddenly you see a number of them

  • opening all over the place. You say they're springing up in this sense. Let's

  • look at number two. You need to get this project under control. You know ,this

  • might be a manager saying this. Several problems seemed to have sprung up

  • unexpectedly this past week. Yeah, So again we need to come into being or just

  • to appear suddenly. They sprang up All right number three. Your son sprung up

  • over the summer. He must have had a growth spurt. So this is physically. So

  • yeah you sometimes you see this may be a teenage boy over the summer. Maybe he

  • grew like four or five inches over one summer. And a lot of people didn't see

  • him over the whole summer. Wow ! What happened to you ? Look at how tall you got.

  • Wow you really sprang up. That's the way somebody would say it. And let's look at

  • number four. If you open the box, a puppet will spring up. So you know it's probably

  • like a jack-in-the-box. You open it and the puppet comes up or or any sort of

  • toy like that. Anyway I hope you got it . I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
