Did you sleep in?

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 7 PM yesterday when my close friend Tom dropped by (Click here!) to see if I was doing well. He knew I was under the weather (Click here!) from a month and since I recovered, he insisted me to join a gym early in the morning as it would help me get well in shape as well as help my body function effectively.

Frankly speaking, I am nervous wreck (Click here!) when it comes to doing things early in the morning.

I don’t know why he is always so pumped up (Click here!) for going to the gym, maybe because he is a gym freak (someone who is obsesses with going to the gym), but exercising that too early in the morning is definitely not my thing.

I decided to wake up next day and do some gym before anything else but since it was Sunday and my clock didn’t alarmed, so I slept in and missed my first day of the gym.

We need to clear things out…

Phrasal verbs or idioms?

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

Don’t get me wrong I know Friday is supposed to be an idiom post but, since I noticed some of people asking me about Wednesday’s post, I think it’s about time to clear things out. You might wanna ask?

What was wrong with Wednesday’s post?

Well, there was nothing wrong with it, but that post was to be published today since it was an idiom post. I could not back it up since the notification email was sent to many of the subscribers and deleting the post and posting a new one definitely not seemed the right choice to me. So I came up with this idea that I would rather write a post covering not just phrasal verbs or idioms, but both.

I am sure you will love it as it has both so keep backing up and learning.

Meanings

• About time – nearly time, high time.

• Clear things out – to explain or solve the misunderstanding or confusion.

• Back it up – reverse.

• Came up with – to suggest or think of an idea or plan.

• Back up – support.

 

Examples

• I think it’s about time I bought a new laptop.

• Ron needs to clear things out with his wife before his married life leads to divorce.

• You just can’t back things up when they reach to the extremities.

•Dwayne came up with this idea of holding a conference every Saturday for our company’s growth.

• My mother always backs me up with my dreams and ambitions.

Difference between make up and make someone up?

Difference between make up and make someone up?

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

On 28th July, 2017 Joseph was married to his long time girlfriend Maria in California. As soon as I received the invitation, I took a flight from LA to California for attending the ceremony. Sources had it that there were so many complications before, which almost led to their break-up, but eventually everything got well and they made up.

We reached the church, all pumped up (Click here!) for the ceremony celebration. Emma (Maria’s sister) made her (Maria) up and brought her to the main entry place of the bride. It was the moment when the couple stood together. We all friends were on cloud nine (Click here!) seeing our friend getting married to the person he really loved the most in his life. I wish they remain happy like this forever and may god shower tons of happiness and prosperity in their life.

 

Meanings
  • Make up- Forgive each other and be friendly again.
  • Make (somebody) up – Apply cosmetics to look better.

 

Examples
  • Since he realized it was his my mistake, he is gonna make up with Emma.
  • Rohan Saini, one the best make-up artists of our country made Susan up for the award ceremony.

 

Note: I know some of you might be confused with ‘make up’ phrasal verb and some may even think that it’s wrong. So before you reach to any conclusion, I would like to clear all your doubts with this ‘make up’ thing. In the above context I am talking about the phrasal verb ‘make up’ which means to forgive each other and be friendly again. On the other hand the ‘make up’ you hear all the time is the noun, not a phrasal verb. That too is correct but that’s not phrasal verb.

In the example above ‘make-up’ used in “one of the best make-up artists” is a noun while ‘made Susan up’ is a phrasal verb.

Phrasal verbs you need to know.

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:

This Monday my friend Joe just dropped by to ask if I was coming to his party on upcoming Thursday. I didn’t want to disappoint him by saying no, so I rather preferred to accept his invitation as it could have hurt him deep down inside.

My dad dropped me off to his place on the party day but I was not at all pumped up for the party or celebration as I had to move to a new city after few days, so there were so many things going on in my head.

Soon after the party I returned back to my home, changed my clothes and slept right away.

Meaning:

I know you may not like the story in the context (after all I am not writing a novel or story). I make these contexts with the deliberate use of phrasal verbs so that these situations could create a link in your mind which helps you learn these phrasal verbs better and remains in your memory for longer period of time.

So without further ado, let’s see what the phrasal verbs in context mean:

  • Dropped by – To stop for a visit for short period of time.
  • Dropped (someone) off – To leave someone to a destination.
  • Pumped up – Excited.
  • Right away – Just now or then (as per the tense says)

 

Examples:
  • Rubina just dropped by to see if my grandpa was doing good.
  • Don’t worry I will drop you off to school tomorrow.
  • The new singer was so pumped up for his upcoming song.
  • As soon as she came to know about benefits of herbal products, she a ordered a kit right away.

How I got through my examination?

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: “This summer I went to Mumbai (my nanny’s place) to spend my summer vacations.

I enjoyed my holidays to the fullest because I knew I would surely get through my examinations. Days passed by and soon came the semesters. The thought that I would do good in my examination has now changed to –“Will I get through this time?”

Things were still up in the air whether I will get through or not. I studied with my best possible ways I could and gave my exams. The results were declared after 10 days. I don’t know how to express my happiness but I was on cloud-nine (Click here!) knowing the fact that I got through my examinations.”

Do you get through your examinations every time?

Sorry if you are offended, I don’t doubt your intelligence but getting through my Chemistry exam during my school age seemed next to impossible.

Still don’t know what it means? No problem.

It means: To pass an examination.

  • Getting through the chemistry examination during my school age was one of the most difficult things which I have been through.
  • If you didn’t work at all, don’t expect to get through any competitive examination.
