Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 124. The verb phrase today is to
take to something or to take to someone. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here.
All right. We have we have two definitions. The first one. If someone takes to someone or
something he or she starts to like someone or he starts to like a place.
That could be one meaning or number two. If someone takes to doing something. Okay.
He or she begins to make it a regular habit. All right. So let's look at several
examples here to cover this. Example number one. That child usually screams
when he goes to the doctor. But for some reason he took to this doctor and will
do whatever he says. So maybe I don't know for some reason he likes this
particular doctor. All the other doctors he is like (screaming sounds) and then suddenly with this
doctor. He's like "yes" What can I do ? Okay. No problem. So he took to one. He , he
liked him for some reason. Okay. Number two. I had a temporary job in
that city. After living there I really took to that city, so I decided to move
there permanently. Meaning that he really started to like that city and maybe he
wanted to you know be there all the time. So he moved there permanently. He took to
that city. Okay. Good. So of course this is a place
in this situation. Number three. He really likes that breakfast shop and he took to
going there every morning. So this is the like the second one where you take to
doing something you make a habit out of it. So he took to going to that breakfast
place every morning because I don't know maybe they they made the breakfast just
the way he liked. Maybe the food was good the price was right.
So he made a habit out of it . He took to going there every day. Okay. Anyway, I hope
you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
