Hello this is English Explained with Addie, my name is Addie and I am here to explain English grammar and pronunciation tips and get on well on your way to become fluent in English. This video is about the phrasal verb to give something back. I’m going to explain it and give you a few examples. I hope it helps.
PHRASAL VERBS A-Z
To give something back. This means to return something, usually a borrowed item. First example: I have to give these shoes back to Sarah before her party next week; I think she wants to wear them. This means I need to return these shoes back to Sarah before her party next week because she wants to wear them. So that you have to take them back and return them to Sarah.
Next one I need to give this book back to the library. This means I need to return this book back to the library to give the book back.
And the last example, this is something slightly different. I just thought it would be a nice example because you might hear somebody saying this; so this example is: I want to volunteer in the homeless shelter. I want to start giving back to the community. This means that in the case where somebody feels like the community or people have done a lot for that person and they want to start giving back what they feel they’ve received from the community. They want to return some of the joy, some of the emotion that they receive from the help, that they receive from the community and they want to start giving back to the community. So I thought you might like to learn it in in this way about this expression. Anyway, I hope that helps. This was English explained with Addie. Thank you for listening.

To grow up
This means to become an adult or to behave in a more mature way in a way that seems hold on.
First example, when Jack grows up he wants to be a doctor.
The next one:
He has really grown up (this is in the past tense) since the last time I saw him. He is very mature! Mature means behave likes an adult or hold on. So he has really grown up since the last time I saw him. He is very mature.
Now I have to address something related to an issue that sometimes people have: to grow and to grow up are different; to grow means to grow in height to become taller, so I’m going to show you an example when we use grow and not grow up; he has really grown since the last time I saw him. He is almost as tall as me. So here we don’t use grow up because this grow up means to grow in behavior and in maturity and to grow means to grow in height or in size okay?
I hope that helped, thanks for listening this video was brought to you on aulaingles.es and made by me, Addie.
