Hello everyone this is Lisa.
Today Diana and I will be talking about phrasal verbs.
A phrasal verb is a verb and a preposition or a verb and an adverb and when used this way the verb gains a whole new meaning.
Phrasal verbs are usually used informally in everyday’s speech instead of the more formal verbs.
In a conversation we will never say let’s congregate that is used in more formal gatherings like in political meetings instead we would say let’s get together.
We’re going to have a question and answer session to illustrate this.
1. How would you say that you don’t have a good relationship with John?
I don’t get along with John
2. What is a good way to say that your car doesn’t have more gas
I ran out of gas
3. If you don’t tolerate any injustice…
I won’t put up with any injustice
4. If you want to cheer someone to work on a difficult task what would you say?
Just keep on doing it until you make it
5. So how would you say if you do have a good relationship with John?
I get along with John.
6. What about if you just don’t tolerate an offense.
I won’t put up with it
7. So if you don’t put up with it, what does it mean?
That I won’t tolerate it
8. Do you get along with me?
Yes I do
9. And that means…
That we have a good relationship
10. So we get along with each other?
11. And you get along with your husband?
I certainly do
12. So keep on means…
It means to continue, like keep on doing it, it means continue doing it, keep on working… continue working
13. If you neighbor’s dog barks a lot you would say…
I can’t put up with my neighbor’s dog
14. And if you don’t have more milk
We ran out of milk
15. So if you ran out of water that means that…
I just don’t have anymore water
