Collocation- Nervous Wreck

Hey there,Welcome back to your home ‘Your English Vocabulary’- The place for every English learner who has struggled a lot in their English skills and want to improve their spoken English and vocabulary.

I know we are not updating our posts so frequently and we are sorry for that but trust me guys it will soon skyrocket in frequency very soon. So please keep supporting and sharing and without further ado let’s get down to today’s post which is my personal favorite topic to teach- Collocation:))

Context

It was Thursday evening when my friend David came to my house to ask for the notes of Psychology exam which was going to be held on Saturday. I was quite baffled (confused) when he asked me for the notes because a day after was my exam.

David was nervous wreck for the fact that in case if he did not pass the exam, he would have to repeat the year once again. I had no other option but to say no to him because I also had so much to cover up. Had I given him my notes at that time, I would not have got through (click here!) my exams with good grades.

Can you guess now what this collocation meant?

And when to use it?

Yes! You are right. We use this collocation when we are extremely nervous about a person or thing.

Let’s see some of the other examples to clear out its meaning:

Examples

  •  Susan was nervous wreck after listening the news of her brother’s accident.
  •  The man was nervous wreck in front of police which made him a suspicion of the attack.

Let me know in the comment section below when were you nervous wreck recently.

Till then take care and?

Get a move on!

Hey there,

Welcome back to your home ‘Your English Vocabulary’- The place for every English learner who has struggled a lot in their English skills and want to improve their spoken English and vocabulary.

Context

It was 4th of September when Robin was told by his father John, that they are going to Vancouver by flight at 8:00 PM the next day. He was on cloud nine (click here) as he was bored stiff in his house. His mom packed their clothes and they were all ready. They thought they would head over to airport at 4:30 PM, but at moment when they had to go, their taxi punctured due to which they had a delay of 1 hour.

“We have to get a move on, else we will miss the flight”, said John. After some time they reached the airport sharp at time anyhow and the family hence reached Vancouver to enjoy their time.

 

So did you see when you have to get a move on?

Yup! You got that right.

It is used to say someone to hurry up.

So it means: To hurry up.

Examples:
  • Idiomatic sentence: You better get a move on or you will miss the train.

Normal sentence: You better hurry up or you will miss the train.

  • Idiomatic sentence: Get a move on guys, subscribe to our email list so that you never miss a post.

Normal sentence: Hurry up guys, subscribe to our email list so that you never miss a post.

 

Let me know in the comment section below about the time when you got a move on :))

Till then take care and?

Bye bye.

What is the meaning of ‘down the line’?

Hey there,

Welcome back to your home ‘Your English Vocabulary’- The place for every English learner who has struggled a lot in their English skills and want to improve their spoken English and vocabulary.

Context

Yesterday a member of our home ‘Your English Vocabulary’ contacted me via contact form (I don’t like to reveal the real name, let’s name him Joe) and the email said something like this:

“Hi there, I really love the way you teach. I totally understand your concepts and teachings and I think you should post on daily basis.”

I replied:

“Hello Joe,

 I am glad that you love our content. We will try to publish at least 10 blogs a month, but the problem is, we have a tight schedule day in and out. So each member of our team contributes a little for the blog, someone at replying the emails while I write and edit post (Of course I get the idea from my Sunita ma’am and my experiences) and further things by other members. Everyone has a quite busy schedule but we will definitely try to increase the number of posts down the line.

Regards,

Your English Vocabulary.”

His reply: “I understand that. By the way what is the meaning of down the line?”

Hopefully from the context you would have got a clue what it actually means:

Well, if not….

It means: in the future.

Examples:

  • Though Ben is working quite hard, let’s see if he makes it in any competition down the line.”
  • Robin is a good basketball player, but I am not sure if he will play like this down the line.”

Do you know now what it means when someone uses this idiom ‘down the line’?

Let me know in the comment section below.

Note: Guys, we work a lot harder than you think. Stealing time from our daily activities, jobs and college, we brought this free platform for our English learners where we won’t extract money from your pockets (All free, No eBooks or courses!). All we need is your support which you can show by a share which is great and motivates us to do more.

Till then take care and?

Bye bye.

Do you ‘face the music’?

Do you face the music?

Hey there,

Welcome back to your home ‘Your English Vocabulary’- The place for every English learner who has struggled a lot in their English skills and want to improve their spoken English and vocabulary.

Context Story: “Rohan was one of the naughtiest students in my class. He used to fight on every little petty issue (small issues, which should be ignored) with everyone in his class and spent the whole time just doing these naughty things and playing video games. Soon came the pre-boards. He was still not focusing on his studies and was more involved in unnecessary activities.

Days passed by and it was the D-day, the day of high school board exams. Rohan went to many of his classmates for giving him some of their notes so that he could get through (Click here!) the examination. Alas! It was too late. He has no other option but to face the music.

Did you see why Rohan has to face the music?

Yes, you are right.

Because of his actions.

Still don’t know what it means?

It means: To face the consequences of your actions or to face a particular situation.

Examples:

  • A= “I don’t know what’s wrong with my History, I bombed in it again.”

B= “Please don’t mind, your attendance in classes is even less than 25%. Now face the music and give a retest in the second semester.”

  • A= “Do you know David was hospitalized yesterday due to liver damage?”

B= “It was quite obvious. He was a regular drinker. He has to face the music now.”

Let me know in the comment section below when you faced the music in your life?

Till then take care and?

Bye bye.
