Hello, this is English explained with Addie. My name is Addie and I´m here to explain English grammar and pronunciation tips, and get you well on your way to becoming fluent in English. This video is about the phrasal verb “to get round to something”. I´m going to explain it and give you a few examples. I hope it helps.

A to Z of phrasal verbs: “To get round to doing something” or “to get round to something”. This means “to finally find time to do something”.

First example: “I don´t know when I am going to get round to writing my Christmas cards”. This means “I don´t know when I am finally going to find the time to write my Christmas cards”. Do you see here how after we use this expression we use the gerund? So “I don´t know when I´m going to get round to writing my Christmas cards” – that´s the activity that we want to find the time to do.

Next example: for example at work, you could say to your colleague “When do you think you will get round to finishing your section of the task?”. This means “When do you think you will finally find the time to finish your section of the task?”. You are asking for the timeframe which they are going to take to finish this task.

Last one: “I finally got round to visiting my Grandmother, she was so happy!”. So this means “I finally found the time (in the past tense) to visit my Grandmother and she was very happy!”.

I hope you´ve understood that. Thank you very much for listening! This video was brought to you on behalf of aulaingles.es and made by me, Addie.

 

Traducción

Hola, es Inglés explicado con Addie. Me llamo Addie y soy aquí para expliquar la gramática inglesa y algunos consejos de pronunciación, y para que estés en camino hacia la fluidez hablando inglés. Este video trata del verbo frasal “encontrar tiempo para”. Te lo voy a expliquar y dar unos ejemplos. Espero que te ayude.

De A a Z de los verbos frasales: “Encontrar tiempo para hacer algo” o “Encontrar tiempo para algo”. Este quiere decir “hacer finalmente tiempo para hacer algo”.

Primer ejemplo: “No sé cuando encontraré tiempo para escribir mis tarjetas de Navidad” Este significa “No sé cuando haré finalmente tiempo para escribir mis tarjetas de Navidad” ¿Miras aquí que utilizamos el gerundio después de esta expresión? Así que “No sé cuando encontraré tiempo para escribir mis tarjetas de Navidad” – esto es la actividad para que queremos encontrar el tiempo. Este quiere decir “Cuando piensas que harás tiempo

Próximo ejemplo: Por ejemplo al trabajo, podrías decir a tu colega “¿Cuándo piensas que encontrarás tiempo para terminar tu sección de la tarea?”. Este quiere decir “¿Cuándo piensas que harás tiempo para terminar tu sección de la tarea?”. Estás preguntando para el periodo de tiempo en que va a acabar la tarea.

El último: “Finalment encontré tiempo para ver a mi abuela, estaba tan contenta!”. Este significa “finalmente hice tiempo (en el tiempo pasado) para ver a mi abuela y estaba tan contenta!”.

Espero que hayas entendido. Muchas gracias por escuchar! Este video está presentado por aulaingles.es y hecho por yo, Addie.

Hola este es “Inglés con Addie” – me llamo Addie y estoy aquí para explicarte gramática inglesa y consejos de pronunciación para que estés en buen camino para hablar inglés con fluidez.

 

This video is about the phrasal verb to “turn down” and I´m going to explain it and give you a few examples. Este video trata del verbo frasal “turn down” y voy a explicártelo y darte algunos ejemplos.

Phrasal verbs: Verbos frasales:

To turn down         =         to lower volume reducir/bajar el volumen

One definition for the verb to “turn down” is to lower the volume. Una definición del verbo “turn down” es reducer/bajar el volumen.

 

To turn down       =         to reject rechazar

Another definition is to reject something. To turn down can also mean to reject something. Otra definición del verbo “turn down” es rechazar algo. “Turn down” puede significar también rechazar algo.

 

To lower the volume… example: Bajar/ reducer el volumen….ejemplo:

My neighbour came to ask me to turn down the volume. Mi vecino vino para preguntar que bajara/redujera el volumen.

In this situation we have the “turn down” together however “the volume” can also go in between “turn” and down”. En esta situación tenemos el “turn down” juntos sin embargo “the volume” también se puede poner entre “turn” y “down”.

 

Next: Siguiente:

Can you turn down the television please? It´s very loud. ¿Puedes bajar el volumen de la televisión por favor? Es muy ruidosa.

So when we say “turn down” we are talking about the volume. To “turn down” the television or the radio or something that makes noise. Entonces cuando decimos “turn down” referimos al volumen. “Turn down” la televisión o el radio o algo que hace ruido.

 

Now, another defintion of to “turn down” is to reject something. To say “no” to something. Example:   A ver, otra definición de “turn down” es rechazar algo. Para decir “no” a algo. Ejemplo:

Any news since your interview?…… Yes, they turned me down.

¿Alguna noticia de tu entrevista?….. Si, me han rechazado.

In this case we have actually put the “me” in between turn and down. They turned ME down. So what we are saying is that they rejected me or they said no to me. They didn´t give her the job. En este caso se ha puesto el “me” entre turn y down. They turned ME down. Entonces lo que decimos es que me rechazaron o que me dijeron no. No le dieron el trabajo.

OK, next one   Entonces, el próximo

Any news since your interview? ……. Yes, they offered me the job but I turned IT down.

¿Alguna noticia de tu entrevista? ……. Sí, me ofrecieron el trabajo pero lo rechazé.

So they said yes but I refused it. I rejected the job. IT is the job and I turned IT down. I rejected IT. Entonces dijeron si pero lo decline. Rechazé el trabajo. IT es el trabajo e IT rechazé. I rejected IT.

Espero que este video te haya ayudado y que hayas aprendido. Muchas gracias por la atención. Este video está realizado por Addie de Aulaingles.es.

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. This was brought to you on behalf aulaingles.es and made by me, Addie.

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.

Okay?

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.

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 eat out. I´m going to explain it and hopefully you´ll understand.

Phrasal verbs exercise

To eat out

This means to eat out at a restaurant, this could be a fancy restaurant, it could be a fast food restaurant or anything winding from Mcdonald´s to direx it doesn’t matter. Ok first example:

“I cannot be bothered to cook tonight, let´s eat out”.

So in this situation it means the person does not feel like cooking so they suggested that they go out to eat to a restaurant, could be anywhere. Next one:

“I am on a diet; I will not be eating out anymore. You never know what they are putting in the food”.

So in this example what the person is trying to say is that in restaurants or when you are not cooking the food you don´t know what the people are putting in the food, the ingredients, if it´s healthy or not healthy. So they won´t be eating out, going out to restaurants or fast food places or anywhere, anymore. Next one:

“We are always eating out, so for a change, I think I am going to cook for him tonight”

So in this situation this people are always going out to restaurants to eat, and this time they are going to cook at home

So if you wanted to suggest that somebody that you want to go to a restaurant or something like that, what you could say is Let´s eat out! So that is the suggestion that you could make when you are not sure what to eat.

For example: I´m not sure what to cook tonight or I´m kind of hungry and the suggestion after that could be let´s eat out. Let´s go out to a restaurant to eat. Next example:

“Why don´t you get a burguer? Oh no I don´t eat out, I will wait until I get home”.

In this example this person is saying as a general rule they don´t go out to eat in restaurants or they don´t go out to eat in fast food places therefore they are going to eat until they get home

So if someone ask you out what´s your favourite food restaurant you could say: “Oh no I don´t eat out”. Do you understand?
