Hello, this is English explained with Addie; my name is Addie and I´m here to explain English grammar and pronunciation tips. Hope you help along the way to become fluent in English. This video is about the phrasal verb “to find out” To find out something or to find out. I´m going to explain it and give you a few examples I hope it´ll helps.
Exercise of phrasal verbs: “To find out about something”, this means to discover something.
For example: “We tried to keep the surprise party as a secret, but Jenny found out about it” so what this means is they try to keep the party a a secret however Jenny found discovered it was happening.
Next one: “Guess what! …Did you know that David is moving to Madrid?” “How did you find out about that? Nobody was supposed to know!” This means how did you discover that, nobody was supposed to know.
Got it? Ok going to the next one, this one is just using the phrasal verb to find out as a general expression which also means to discover but you don´t put the subject in there. Here we go:
I don`t know who to speak to about this problem. How can I find out? This means how can I discover who the right person is to speak about the problem and in this case normally you`ll explain what the problem is, and now you found out and you are referring to the previous close, the previous statement. So I don´t know who to speak to about this problem. How can I find out?
Ok last one: “We don`t know where the hotel is. How can we find out?” So basically as I was explaining earlier is like you are putting the first expression into, after find out but is a silence expression so what you are trying to find out is how can we find out where the hotel is? Instead explaining the situation we don´t know where it is so how can we find out. Ok? That`s all for now.
