How do you use GET in English as a phrasal verb?

How do you use GET in English as a phrasal verb?


Hey guys, how’s it going? I’m Gabby Wallace and this is a go natural English lesson. I got a question from one of you my youtube viewers Can you please explain the verb to get as a phrasal verb? you guys this is a great question because native English speakers use the verb get probably more than any other verb and we use get as part of a Phrasal verb a phrasal verb if you don’t know is a verb plus Another Preposition let’s say a verb plus a preposition that has the same meaning as a more formal verb Anyway, we use these forms a lot. So if you want your English to be more native-like More fluent then this video is for you. And this may be the most comprehensive video lesson About the verb to get as a phrasal verb now in this lesson. I’m just going to show you get Plus a preposition there are many many many more phrasal verbs using get Plus another word, but we’re just going to take a look at get plus a preposition today This is still super comprehensive and a lot of information to take in So if you want to start speaking more like a native speaker or just start to understand Native speakers then pay attention because this video is going to help a lot Oh and if after this video if you want to continue to learn phrasal verbs then check out My course called focus on phrasal verbs at my website Go natural English dot-com just see if it’s right for you. No pressure You can just check out my free videos on YouTube as well. Alright, so let’s take a look at get Plus, oh my gosh. Where should we even start? This is like a huge map of possibilities Let’s just start here at the top. So I’m gonna tell you some examples to give you the idea to get out For example get out of the bus Here we could also say get out of doing something so to get out of Means to avoid something. For example, I I Love getting out of work early or I love getting out of Doing homework, right? So I’m avoiding something different than just get out. Get out means leave Okay Get off Could also be get off the bus, right? There’s another phrase you might hear. Hey, where do you get off saying that? that meaning is Totally different like it’s really an idiom. It’s really slang. We don’t use Where do you get off? We don’t use that phrase unless we’re really angry or annoyed at someone so that means you know How can you say that? For example, it’s kind of like you’re shocked, right and angry To get off the hook is another idiom It means to be released from your responsibility To get over let’s say you broke up with your boyfriend or girlfriend. You have to get over him or her okay, that means to get past something it can also mean let’s get over like Get over could be physically like, you know jumping over like oh, can you get over that? Log, or can you get over that object? Physically, you’re stepping over something but we usually you know If we’re using it talking about a relationship it will be you know to emotionally get past something so hey Stop being so sad. Get over your ex-boyfriend. All right get on so again get on the train or get on the bus or get on with could be hey do you get on with your colleagues well Do do you it could also be do get along With so some of these phrases are used more in British English and others more in American English So I would tend to say because I’m American I would say do you get along with your colleagues? Well, but I think other people other English speakers might say do you get on with your colleagues? Well? Get around so just Get around could be physical as well You know get around the barricade get around the wall get around the object Also, it could be using a figurative sense like to avoid something Get around to is different. So it means if you are delaying some action you’re procrastinating let’s say I have 200 unread emails When am I going to get around to reading them? Oh, I don’t know it takes a long time. Okay get behind So again, this could be physical you could get behind an object But it also has another meaning as a phrasal verb. Let’s say, oh I really love this organization called Pencils of promise. I think that’s the name of it, right? It’s an educational nonprofit That that helps young people to be educated. So I get behind their mission. That means I believe in their mission Get down again. It could be physical I get down from there. You’re too high You’ve climbed up a ladder you climbed up to the roof of your house could say that’s dangerous get down from there but if you say get down to business That’s an idiom. That’s pretty common. So, hey, let’s get down to business. Let’s get down to the lesson. Let’s let’s do it here Let’s get to the point It’s another idiom get to the point. Okay, get across again. It could be physical Can you get across the river or is it too high or? Get a point across so I hope that I’m getting the message across To you in this video lesson. I want you to understand something Get along with I actually mentioned that already do get along with your colleagues Get along if you just say get along. I don’t know why the famous phrase comes to mind get along little doggy it just means Get get out of here right go leave get along, but it’s not a very common phrase anymore So it’s not really even worth remembering get at get at means to let’s say I’m getting at The point that the verb get is used a lot. That’s what I’m trying to suggest I’m getting at the message here get is everywhere Get by. Oh, how are you doing? I’m just getting by you know, everything’s okay. It’s alright To get by it means so-so, you know, you’re not doing great not doing bad. Just getting by things are alright Get up Wake up stand up get up. Get out of bed. It could be, you know, you’re sitting down, but you need to stand up So hey everybody get up Get up – I Want you to get up? – Help me move some boxes Okay, that’s the purpose of getting up Get up – trouble. Hey, don’t you get up – any trouble means, you know don’t get into any trouble That’s another one actually did I even write down into I didn’t but that’s another one get into Trouble or get up to trouble Same same difference Get after Now, I think this is more common in British English, but I’m familiar with it. I’m going to get after my friend because She never calls me. So I have some complaints right? I’m going to complain I’m gonna get after that person get between Physically you could get between two walls or get between two cars if you’re parking but using this as a phrasal verb you could get between People in a relationship so don’t get between me and my man you You flirt Right. I think you get the idea, right? Get through so if I get through traffic That means that I have successfully Driven my car through a lot of other cars if I get through to you that means that you have understood all of These phrasal verbs with get it means to get through to someone is they understand you clearly? Get in To get in like let’s say you want to go to a concert or an event or a Nightclub or a restaurant you want to enter so you want to get in you want to gain? Admission. Hey, did you get into the restaurant or was it totally packed? Oh I got in. It was great delicious Where did we even start because I’ve been talking about the verb to get for way too long And I can’t remember where we started so get in get out of I think that’s where we started, right? I remember talking about get out of a responsibility. Oh, I like to get out of work early I like to get out of doing homework Okay, so I did my best to go through the examples that just came to mind as we were going here But I’m sure that there are more examples that I may have forgotten Just like oh there was one I was gonna share about get down All right. So this is a fun phrasal verb because it means like to dance get down Get funky All right, so you can use that when you go out this weekend and If you find any other examples or if you want to ask a question Maybe you’re not sure if you can use get in a certain way Please leave your comments and questions below this video on YouTube Thank you so much for watching this video and I’ll see you next time. Bye for now

    Phrasal verbs !! lol just put three words Get – make – Have on one weighing scale and the rest of grammar verbs in other one, then the scale will be an equal ….. well pretty informative video, because it takes so much pre thinking to explain the whole idea of Phrasal verb. 90 percent American and as well native speaker use the phrasal all the time compare to the other grammar sentences.

    I think it needs a revolution in English grammar, like to establish international body like ( UNFE ) ( United Nation for English ) and this organization will monitor the English grammar as well as Language, because the discord between USA & UK upon English by creating their own Phrasal verbs whenever they want, creates confusion for the rest of world. Those people for whom English is a Second Language.
