1. Phrasal Verbs and Definitions (Learning Stage): the target. Frenzel Bob's for this set. Ah, wolf through something Tap into something, Sweep across something and turnout. Here we are on set 14 now off English phrase Alvar abs Launch. I hope you're learning a lot, Andi. I hope you're listening to the MP threes and reading the P D EFS. As often as you can remember, you can always ask a question in the Q and A section. I'm always here to help you if you need any assistance at all. So let's start with the first phrase. A verb offset 14 phrase of UB Number one is wolves through something, which means to complete something easily. For example, Jane Walls through her driving test on the fast try. The Examiner didn't note a single era. I'm sure you've heard off the walls. It's a kind of dance, and we're using the word wolfs in this phrase of UB Wolf through something. So when we wars through something, we complete it very, very easily. We complete the task easily. It's almost like we're dancing through it. It's effortless for us, or it looks effortless. So in this example, Jane was having her driving test. Now, when we have a driving test were usually quite nervous beforehand. It's usually quite a worrying experience. We're worried whether we'll fail or whether we'll make a mistake. Very often people fail their first driving test on even the 2nd 1 But Jane was very, very confident. She passed very, very easily. She didn't make a single era so we can say Jane Walls through her driving test. She completed it or past really easily, so if you complete a task easily, you walk through it now. In cup competitions in sport, the big teams are always expected to win in the early stages against the smaller teams. So let's take Manchester United as an example. There are very big football team here in England, so when they're playing a team in the early stages off a Cup tournament, they're expected to win. The other team is usually from League two or League three. They're certainly not as good or as rich as a club like Manchester United. So Manchester United is expected to easily win too easily complete their task so we can say Manchester United is expected to wolves through the team. It's the same in any sport. If you take tennis. Roger Federer is expected to win all the early games in any competition because his opponents are usually further down in the rankings. So Roger Federer is expected to walk through every player in the early stages of a competition. So that's the 1st 1 Let's have a look at Fraser verb number two. Now phrase ill verb number two is tap into something, which means to use a resource in a way that brings benefits. For example, the company is entering the country to tap into the skills and creativity off the new generation. A resource is a valuable possession or quality off a person or a country, for example. In this example, we're talking about skills and creativity. These are two very valuable possessions off people. Now the company is going to enter a new country, so they're going to start their business in a new location. On the reason they're going there is to tap into those skills and creativity off the new generation off the young people. So they're taking this resource with skills and creativity, and they're using it in a way that brings the company benefits. So ultimately that means they want profit. Now oil is quite a valuable resource in the world. It's still quite valuable. So imagine there's an oil company. Andi. They've been searching for oil for a very long time, maybe a year or so, and finally they found oil. Finally, they're able to drill down into the sea bed and use that resource in a way that brings them benefits so they can sell it for lots of profit. We can say the oil company was finally able to tap into the rich oil reserves. This means they're able to take that resource, which is the oil, and use it in a way that brings them benefits. So that's the second phrase Alvar Bob Tap into something. Let's have a look at the next one phrase of up. Number three is sweep across something, which means to spread quickly across an area. For example, the powerful tsunami swept across the small island with speed and ferocity. If something moves across an area and spreads out very quickly, we can say it sweeps across the area. Now, in this example, we're talking about a tsunami, a big tidal wave coming and covering a small island. So it came along, and it's spread quickly over this tiny island so we can say the tsunami swept across the island. Now we often talk about weather sweeping across a country. So imagine you go to bed one night and you wake up in the morning and you see a lovely blanket of snow everywhere. Snow is covering the place. The weatherman might say. Snowfall swept across the country overnight. This means the snowfall came and spread out everywhere on left, a lovely blanket of snow all over the place. Now I'm sure you've heard off the Beatles. They were a very, very famous rock band in the sixties and seventies, and they're still very, very famous. Well, people went wild at that time. The fans of the Beatles went crazy supporting them, going to meet them. And all over the world there was a general mania for the Beatles. This was called Beatlemania. Now this spread quickly all over the world, especially Europe Onda, the U. S. A. So we can say Beatlemania swept across the world in the 19 sixties. This means it's spread very, very quickly all over the place. So that's the third phrase a verb here is the last one now phrase over number four is turnout, which means to go somewhere in orderto watch or take part in an event. For example, thousands of people from all over the world turned out for the three day carnival. If you've recently bean to an event, we can say that you turned out for that event or you turned out to watch that event. Now the event can be anything from a birthday to a concert or a football match can be anything, really. In this example, we're talking about a carnival, so thousands and thousands of people went Teoh, take part in this carnival or to watch the carnival so we can say thousands of people turned out for the carnival. Now I'm sure you watch the football World Cup on television. Perhaps you've even Bean to one of the games in the stadium. Wherever it is in the world, thousands and thousands of fans go toe watch the games, or just to go and absorb the atmosphere in the country so we can say thousands of fans turn out for each game. Thousands of fans go there to watch or just to enjoy the atmosphere. They turn out for each game to cheer on their nation. If we turnout for an event, we go there and we watch or take part in it. Now those are the four Fraser verbs. Time to move on to all the training videos on the speaking and listening practice exercises . I'll see you in the next video. 2.
