Transcripts

1. Phrasal Verbs and Definitions (Learning Stage): the target phrase. Alvar UBS for this sent. Ah, wrap something up. Wipe something out. I heard somebody on and touch something up. Welcome to set 11. Here are four more separable phrase of abs for you to master. Let's look at the 1st 1 Wrap something up, Fraser Bob Number one is wrap something up, which means to complete or finish something. For example, the tennis player wrapped the match up quickly beating his opponent without losing a single game. If we finish or complete a task, we can say I've wrapped it up. Now, in this example, we're focusing on a tennis match. So the player finished the match very, very quickly. He won the match quickly so we can say the tennis player wrapped the match up quickly. So he completed or finished his task. His task was to win the match and he wrapped it up very quickly. Now we can use this phrase all verbs in other contexts like work. So imagine I'm at work and I'm working on a project. I can say I've almost finished this project, but instead of saying finished, I can use the phrase of UB wrap something up so I can say I've almost wrapped this project up. It means I've almost completed it. We also use this in meetings a lot. So imagine I'm chairing a meeting and it's at the end of the meeting and I want to say, Okay, we finished. Now we often say, Let's wrap this meeting up. It simply means let's finish this meeting now so we can use this in a number off different contexts. Now let's look at Fraser verb number two Fraser verb number two is wipe something out, which means to completely destroy something. For example, the tornado ripped through the country, wiping whole villages out as it did so. If we wipe something out, we completely destroy it. So we use this phrase all verb in quite negative contexts. Now, in this example, we're talking about a tornado ripping through the country, which means it moved along and it destroyed areas as it did so the tornado wiped villages out. That means it completely destroyed the villages as it moved along. We can also talk about animals being wiped out by something. Now imagine there is an oil spill in the sea. This is really bad for the wildlife in that area. So the dolphins, the fish, the whales and all the other sea creatures So we can say the oil spill wiped out the sea creatures in the area. This means it completely destroyed the sea creatures in that location. The dinosaurs were completely destroyed by a meteorite millions of years ago, so we can say a meteorite wiped out the dinosaurs. So that's the phrase of verb. Wipe something out. Let's look at number three now. Fraser verb number three is urge somebody on, which means to encourage someone to do something well. For example, the loud crowd of over 100,000 people urged the runners on as they began the final lap. If you like sports, perhaps you have a favorite tennis player or football player or rugby player that you really, really like, you might urge them on. This means that you encourage them to do well. You support them and you cheer for them when they play. Now you don't have to actually be next to them when you're urging them on. You might just be watching TV at home, so you might be watching a tennis match or a football match and you might be cheering for your favorite player, so you will urge them on. You will try to cheer them on to make them do well. Of course, you might be in the stadium as well, cheering on your team or cheering on your favorite player. In this case, you are urging them on your urging, your favorite player on to do well. Now we could also urge our friends on. So imagine my friend is starting a business and he needs some support, some encouragement and positive words. Well, I can urge him on this means. I say to him, You can do it. You can do well. I'm sure you can make this business a big success. So with these words, I'm encouraging him. I'm making him feel positive. So I'm urging my friend on to do well, so we're encouraging someone to do something well to perform well. Now let's look at the last phrase all verb. In this set, Fraser verb number four is touch something up, which means to improve something by making small changes and additions. For example, I bought the car, touched it up with a bit of paint and then sold it for a profit off $2000. So when we touch something up, we don't make big, massive changes. We don't change a lot about the thing. We just make small changes or small additions to the thing. So in this example, the person bought a car, a second hand car, and he touched it up with just a bit of paint. So he didn't do much. Maybe there were some marks on the car or some rust, so he just touched up those bits that needed painting. And then he sold it for a profit off $2000. So he just made small changes, and he made a big profit, so he did very, very well. Now we can also touch up other things, like photographs. Nowadays, it's quite common to touch photographs up so we can use photo shop, for example, to make our skin look better or to remove some wrinkles from our face. Very often, celebrities have their photos touched up. Now, other things that weaken touch up our walls at home. So recently I've done a bit of painting in my house. There were some marks on the walls, so I just touched it up. I touched the walls up. I didn't paint everywhere. I didn't paint the whole war. I just touched the wall up. Which means I painted little parts. I just made small changes and small additions, and it looked much better just by touching it up. Those are the four Fraser verbs we're going to master in this set. Now it's time to move on. I'll see you in the next video. 2. Pronunciation and Meaning Training (Learning Stage): pronunciation and meaning training. Wrap something up. Se wrap something up.
