1. Phrasal Verbs and Definitions (Learning Stage): the target phrase. Alvar abs for this set. Ah, throw something together. Take something up. Throw something in and top something off. Welcome to set 13. Let's look at four more separable Fraser verbs. The 1st 1 is throw something together. Fraser Verb number one is throw something together, which means to make something quickly and without care. For example, the guests arrived unexpectedly, so I threw together some lunch on the cake. Sometimes we are in a rush on. We want to get somewhere quickly, but before we go, we want toe have something to eat. Well, in this case, we might throw some food together. We might throw something together, which means we make it quickly on without much care. So I might throw some pastor together or I might throw a sandwich together. So I make it quickly and without much care, because I want to go very, very quickly now. In this example, some guests had arrived at the Parsons House on. She wanted to impress them. She wanted toe served them some nice food. Perhaps they were very hungry, but she hadn't prepared anything beforehand, so she needed to quickly make something so, she said, I threw some lunch Onda a cake together. This means she made it very, very quickly and without much care. So she didn't care much about the details. She just quickly made it and served it to her guests. Now we don't always have to talk about food. It can be anything that we make when we throw something together. So imagine I am a student and I have to hand in my art project by tomorrow. But I haven't even started it yet. I can say I need to throw something together for my art project. This means I need to make something very quickly and without care, because at this stage it's very late. I can't take a long time, so I need to throw it together. I need to make it very quickly before the deadline tomorrow. So that's the phrase ill verb. Throw something together. Let's have a look at number two now. Phrasing Bob Number two is take something up, which means to start a new hobby or activity. For example, I wasn't getting enough exercise, so I decided to take up badminton and table tennis. Have you recently started a new hobby or activity Well, if you have you took it up. This simply means you started it. So you took up the new holly or you took up the new activity. Now, in this example, the person thought that he wasn't getting enough exercise. So he decided to start a new hobby. He decided to take up badminton and table tennis, so he started thes two new hobbies. Now we can take up many, many different things we can take up and you sport a social game or any activity. Really? So it could be taking up chess. It could be taking up knitting. It could be taking up football, rugby, tennis, anything that social, any sport, any activity. Now I'm really thinking about taking up yoga because I heard yoga is very, very good for our body. It's good for our muscles. It's good for our mind, and it's very, very good for relaxing. So I'm thinking about taking up yoga. So that's my hobby or activity that I'm planning to start. Now. Let's look at Fraser verb number three phrase of OB number three is throw something in which means to include something extra when selling something. For example, if you buy this laptop. Today, I'll throw in a laptop cover Onda laptop stand for free. So if you go to a shop on, do you buy something and the shop decides to give you something else for free, they throw something in, they throw this extra thing in for free Now. In this example, the person was thinking about buying a laptop on the salesman came along and said, Okay, if you buy this laptop today, I'll throw in a laptop cover Onda a laptop stand for free so he'll give them to the person for free if they buy the laptop. So when we throw something in, we give it for free when they buy something else. Now, when I go to my local greengrocers, which is a place that sells fruit and vegetables, they always throw something in for me. So I go there quite regularly. I buy lots of fruit on lots of vegetables, so when I go to pay on die, take my bank. They always throw in some fruit for me so they might throw in an apple or a few bananas or some oranges so they always throw something in for free. They give it to me because I bought something else. So that's the third Fraser verb. Now let's look at number four. Phrasing Bob. Number four is top something off, which means to finish something in a special or satisfying way. For example, we ate a delicious three course meal, which was topped off with a huge piece of apple pie. When we talk something off, we finished something in a really special or satisfying way. So imagine this is a timeline. Here is the beginning on Dhere is the end throughout this event were having a really fantastic time. It's a wonderful event, and then at the end, something fantastic happens. Something special happens well, when this happens, we top something off, so we finish a special event in a wonderful or satisfying way. Now, in this example, that person is talking about a three course meal, so imagine they go to a world class restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic. The interior is beautiful. The food is some of the best food in the world. It's delicious. So throughout this event, from start to finish, their having a wonderful time, everything is going well and at the end, off the meal they're served a delicious piece of hot apple pie, so this comes at the end. So in this case, the apple pie topped the meal off. It was a really special way to finish a wonderful event. Now I'm sure you've heard of Hussein Bolt, the phenomenal Jamaican sprinter. He won many, many gold medals at the Olympics. Now, when it was his last Olympics appearance in 2016 he had already won six gold medals. So throughout his career, he had already had a wonderful time. So imagine this is his career. This is the timeline off his career from start to finish. It had Bean wonderful. It had Bean fantastic. And then, in his final Olympics appearance, he won two more gold medals so we can say thes. Two medals topped his career off, so he finished his career in a really special on satisfying way. So the two gold medals topped his career off that those are the four Fraser verbs we're going to master. Now.
