#011 Practice Phrasal Verbs with a Story – the word LOOK

Transcript:

Hi everyone!

I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

In this episode:

  • I’ll be discussing some more about the most common phrasal verbs. Today, we’ll take a look at the phrasal verbs created with the word “look.”
  • After that, I will tell you a short story called the Point of View lesson, to help you with grammar and to review the vocabulary you will be learning.

Remember, a phrasal verb is just a verb and a particle. For example, “get in.” By the way, I recommend you to check out the previous episodes about phrasal verbs.

Remember, you just need to learn the most common phrasal verbs.. Also, instead of learning all the different meanings of each phrasal verb, you just need to learn one or two different meanings, preferably, the most common ones.

Ok, let’s get started! We’ll see what we can do with the word “look.”

Look after
It basically means to take care of somebody. For example:

I can’t come with you because I have to look after my brother.

My boyfriend always looks after me.

Who’s going to look after the children?

Look down
This one means to think less of someone. Consider someone inferior. In other words, when you think that you’re better than someone.

Examples:
It’s wrong to look down on people with less money than you.

My boss always looks down on new employees.

Jim thinks they look down on him because he doesn’t have a job.

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
