1. Phrasal Verbs and Definitions (Learning Stage): the target. Frenzel verbs for this set. Ah, hand something down. Blow somebody away. Tell somebody off and cheer somebody up. Welcome to set nine off English phrase ill verbs Launch. Remember, if you have any questions as you work through the course, don't hesitate to ask. Simply go to the Q and a section off the course on Ask a question about Fraser verbs or English in general. Our answer as quickly as possible. Now let's look at Fraser verb number. One phrase of up number one is ham something down, which means to give something to a younger member. Off the family, for example, my great grandfather handed this war medal down. To me, it's my most precious possession. When we hand something down, we give it to a younger member off the family so you can imagine the action off. Handing something to someone means giving, and when we hand something down, we give it to a younger member off the family. Now we can hand things down after we die, so sometimes we make a will, which is a document which details where our possessions go after we die. So in this example, the great grandfather handed down his war medal to his great grandson when he died. So in his will, he detailed who should receive each of his possessions. We can also hand things down at any time in life. So if I own a business, Andi, I have a son, Onda daughter and I want them to continue running the business. Once I'm old on DNA, not ableto work anymore, I can hand down my business knowledge so I can give them the knowledge that I have. This simply means I'm passing it to them. I'm giving it to a younger member off the family. Now. The younger member could be a son or daughter. It could be a younger brother or sister or even grandchildren. So my young daughter has a younger sister and she hands down her clothes when they are too small for her. So we can hand down anything, really, from clothes to knowledge to war medals. If we give it to a younger member off the family, we are handing it down. Now let's look at Fraser verb number two phrase ill verb number two is blow somebody away, which means to surprise or impress someone very much for example, the number of people that came to my party really blew me away. I'm thankful to everyone who came, you know, when you see something and you're really, really impressed or surprised. Well, we can describe the thing as blowing you away. This means you're so impressed or you're so surprised about this thing. So it's a good feeling. Usually it's not just a little surprised or just impressed. It's very surprised or very, very impressed. So it's a strong feeling, a strong emotion. Now This person had a party and she was expecting maybe a few people to come. A few friends and a few members off her family. But lows of people came. We can imagine. Hundreds of people came. All her friends and all her family came and there were so many people that she was really, really impressed. She was so surprised it blew her away. So how feeling Waas really, really strong now I'd really like to go and visit the pyramids in Egypt, the pyramids off Giza. My friend has visited these pyramids on, Dhere said. They blew him away. So when he saw them for the first time, he was so impressed. He couldn't believe how beautiful Andi magnificent they were in real life. So he had seen them in pictures, in magazines, on on the Internet. But when he saw them in real life, it blew him away. So he was really, really impressed. He felt strong emotion when he saw the pyramids off Giza. So that's the phrase. Will verb blow somebody away? Let's look at the 3rd 1 now. Phrase of OB number three is Tell somebody off, which means to speak to someone angrily because they have done something wrong. For example, the teacher told the class off for being too loud during the lesson. When someone does something wrong on, we talked to them in an angry way. We say, Don't do that again. You're being very, very bad. Please don't behave like that anymore. We are telling them off. So we're talking usually in an angry way, and we're telling them not to behave like that. Usually we tell off someone who is younger than us. So, for example, a child or a teenager, so basically we're telling them not to behave in that bad way. We're trying to teach them how to behave and we usually talk in quite an aggressive or angry way so that they listen to us now. In this example, the teacher is telling off his class because they're being much too loud during the lesson . So the teacher is talking to them in an angry way. The teacher is saying, Don't shout, Don't be loud during the lesson. Now if my daughter is misbehaving in the park, for example, if she's doing something naughty or if she's not playing nicely with her friends, I might tell her off. I might speak to her in an angry or strong way and say, You don't behave like that. Don't do that again. You must behave like this. So sometimes it's important that we tell our Children off so that they learn on behave better in the future. So that's the phrase Alvar tell somebody off. Here is number four. Now, Fraser verb number four is cheer somebody up, which means to make someone feel happier when they are sad. For example, Paul is feeling really low after losing his job. I'm going to try to cheer him up a bit by taking him out for dinner. If a member off our family or a friend is feeling a bit sad or depressed. We try to make them feel happier, so we try to make them feel more positive. We try to cheer them up. This means when they're feeling low, we try to make them feel happier again. So in this example, Paul's friend is trying to cheer pull up. He's going to take him out for dinner, to try it, to make him feel a bit happier. So recently, Paul lost his job and he's feeling very, very low. Is feeling a bit sad on may be a bit depressed, so Pools, friends said. I'm going to try to cheer him up by taking him out for dinner. Now we can cheer people up. In many ways. We might take them out for dinner. We might just sit down and talk to them or we might go for a walk in the woods. If my friend was feeling of it's sad on depressed, I would say to him, Come on, let's go for a walk in the woods that will cheer you up that will make you feel much more positive Now we can also cheer ourselves up, so if We're feeling a bit sorry for ourselves if we're feeling a bit sad or a bit depressed . Maybe we've had a difficult week at work. We can do something to cheer ourselves up so I can say I'm going to cheer myself up by going on a trip to the seaside, so I'm going to try to make myself feel happier. So those are the four Fraser verbs we're going to master in this section.
