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.
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.
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)
- 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.
