  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hello everyone and welcome back

  • to English with Lucy.

  • Today, I'm going to talk to you

  • about all the phrasal verbs that go with turn.

  • So this video is going to be excellent

  • for improving your vocabulary,

  • which, in turn, will help you

  • with your listening and your speaking.

  • However, if you want to take your listening

  • and your pronunciation to the next level,

  • I highly recommend listening to audio books.

  • And, in my opinion, the best platform

  • for downloading audio books is Audible.

  • If you want to improve your pronunciation,

  • choose a British narrator,

  • for example, Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter,

  • and read the physical book

  • as you're listening to the audio book.

  • That is the perfect way

  • to improve your listening and your pronunciation.

  • I can offer you one free audio book,

  • that's a 30 day free trial.

  • All you've got to do is click on the link

  • in the description box and sign up.

  • Right, let's get on with the phrasal verb lesson.

  • So the first one, pretty easy,

  • we have to turn on.

  • And this means to start a device

  • by switching it on.

  • That's a synonym.

  • For example.

  • Can you turn off the lights

  • when you leave please?

  • Also note that to turn on a person

  • means to excite them emotionally.

  • (romantic music)

  • And physically.

  • (laughs)

  • But I'm sure if you are interested in that

  • then you can google it yourself.

  • I'm not talking about it here.

  • Then we have number two, to turn off.

  • This means to stop a device

  • by switching it off.

  • For example.

  • Turn off the TV and listen to me.

  • And it can also mean to really not excite somebody

  • emotionally or physically.

  • Now, slightly more difficult, to turn out.

  • To turn out means to result or to end up.

  • For example.

  • Oh, I thought my homework

  • was gonna turn out better than this.

  • I thought my homework was going

  • to end up better than this.

  • Number four.

  • Pretty simple, to turn around.

  • I almost fell over.

  • To turn around means to rotate,

  • to physically rotate something.

  • For example.

  • Turn around, you've left the label in your jacket.

  • A situation can also turn around.

  • You can also turn back,

  • and this is to return

  • to a previous state of being.

  • For example.

  • Once you move out, there's no turning back.

  • You cannot return to living with me.

  • Once you move out, you can't turn back.

  • We also have to turn against,

  • and to turn against means to oppose,

  • often suddenly.

  • So someone who was your friend

  • might turn against you and become your enemy.

  • For example.

  • We were great friends and then she turned against me

  • and started gossiping about me.

  • Then we have to turn in,

  • and this means to submit something

  • or to give something.

  • For example.

  • I want you all to turn in your homework

  • on Monday morning.

  • Next, we have to turn down,

  • and this means to refuse,

  • decline or reject something.

  • For example.

  • I asked him out but he turned me down,

  • he rejected me.

  • We also have to turn into,

  • and this means to transform into something.

  • For example.

  • She clicked her fingers

  • and he turned into a frog.

  • Finally, we have to turn up,

  • and this means to appear suddenly

  • or to attend an event.

  • For example.

  • Oh, look who just turned up!

  • And this means, Oh, look who just appeared!

  • Oh, look who is attending the event!

  • Right, that's it for today's lesson.

  • I hope you learned something

  • and I hope you enjoyed it.

  • Please give me some recommendations

  • for more phrasal verb videos

  • that you would like to see.

  • I'd love to do lots of work on phrasal verbs

  • as I'm noticing a lot of errors in the comments.

  • Your homework for today is to pick

  • three phrasal verbs that you saw in this video

  • and write funny sentences in the comment section.

  • Let's see if you can make me laugh.

  • It's not very hard.

  • Don't forget to check out Audible.

  • The link is in the description box.

  • You can get your free audio book.

  • And don't forget to connect with me

  • on all of my social media.

  • I've got my Facebook,

  • I've got my Instagram,

  • and I've got my Twitter.

  • And I shall see you soon for another lesson.

  • So this video is going to be

  • so good for impuving,

  • eh, impuving.

  • Impuving.

  • (beep)

  • (upbeat music)

  • (beep)

  • (upbeat music)

  • Then we have to turn in,

  • and this means,

  • what does it mean?

  • (upbeat music)
