Hi this is Tutor Nick and this is Adverb Phrase 10. The adverb phrase today
is 'in tow.\" Okay. Let's take a look at the note. In tow can have the literal meaning
like the actual meaning, of being in a situation where a car or vehicle is
being towed. Like we've all seen a tow truck actually towing somebody. So a
vehicle you know, or car behind it could be in tow. So that's kind of where the
idea comes from. Or the second meaning here.
Following someone while being under close guidance. So the person you're
following is probably more in charge. Or someone in charge and leading others in
tow. Okay. So let's take a look at the notes here. Or some examples. We have
three examples. All right. Example number one. When Jack went on vacation, he drove his
van with a motor home in tow. So this is the literal one. So he's driving a van
and maybe it's connected to the van. You know a motor home is behind it. So the
motor home is in tow. So this is the literal meaning of in tow. Or number two.
That kindergarten teacher traveled on a school outing you know , out of the school,
away from school to the zoo with her class in tow. Yeah. Sometimes you see this
you know, with with a teacher or maybe they might even have more than one adult
there, if they have a big class following. With all the children just following
behind them. So she went to the zoo with her class in tow. They were
following behind her. She was leading them. Okay good. And number three here.
That dog walker. Yeah. This is a real job. Sometimes like in a city , some people
don't even have time to walk their own dogs or they willing to pay somebody to
walk their own dogs, especially if they live in a city where you have to pick up the
poo-poo. Maybe you might want to hire a dog walker, it might be worth it in that
case. The dog walker went to the park with five dogs in tow. So five dogs
behind him on leashes so they were all on leashes and they
were in tow. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was clear.
Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
