Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 133. The verb phrase today is to
hurry along. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If we say to hurry along we
are trying to make something happen more quickly or make somebody do something
more quickly. Okay . Or number 2. We have a second meaning here. Hurry along could
also mean ... it could be used to say that you need to leave or go somewhere quickly.
Yeah. Basically you might say well I have to hurry along now. You could use it that
way. As saying that you simply have to leave. Okay. And then we have a third one
here. It's a little bit in the old-fashioned use. But you still might
hear it now and then . You have definitely seen in older movies a lot. Basically it means to
tell a person, especially a child or especially children to go somewhere
quickly. You know hurry along now. Okay. So let's look at several examples we have
here. Example number one. I know you need this project finished as soon as
possible I'll try to hurry along my workers, so we can get it done as soon as
possible. Yes. This is probably a supervisor and this is along the first one you're
trying to make somebody else do something faster.You're trying to hurry
them along. Okay. Well, let's look at number two. You cannot hurry along the

and it takes you know, and you're really serious about it. It takes a long time,
and that may take a couple of years before everything goes through. The
immigration process your application will be processed when they get around
to it. Yeah. So sometimes we might say that you can't hurry along. So you can
use in the negative as well. All right. Number three here. We need to worry
along now. Or we will be late. Yes. So this is when you're using it as
like a reason to say that you have to leave. I have to hurry along now. You can say
that I have to go. Okay, and number four. Again this is a little bit of an old use,
but you still might hear it Come children, so especially we used to use it
