A Fun Way to Learn 50 English Phrasal Verbs with Examples!

Hi Bob the Canadian here. A lot of you have been asking me to do a video
about phrasal verbs. So I thought I would do one today where I
try to teach you 50 phrasal verbs and I’m gonna try and act them all out, because I think
that will make it a whole lot more enjoyable. Let’s get started. So I’m just gonna walk by the camera to get
started. Do you see how this works? I’m going to act out the phrasal verbs. So that was “walk by” and you saw the word
appear over here as I was doing it. So let’s do over 50 more in this English lesson. So when you see something like a bench or
chair you can sit down, and after you have done that for a while you can of course stand
up. So sit down and stand up. Sometimes when I’m walking along I trip and
I fall down. So behind me here you see a ladder. You can climb up a ladder. You can also climb down a ladder. You can also go up a ladder, and then you
can go down a ladder as well. So it’s a little bit sunny today and I thought
maybe I should put on a hat, but then when I came outside it was a little cloudy so I
thought that I would take off my hat. So when we talk about vehicles we usually
get in a vehicle. So I’m going to get in my van. If I was done driving my van I would get out
of my van. There’s also a couple of slang ways to talk
about this, or less common ways, and that’s to jump in. I can jump in my van, and then when I’m done
driving I can jump out again. I don’t jump in or jump out a lot because
I’m getting a little bit old. So even though we use get in and get out to
talk about vehicles, we don’t use it for airplanes, ships, and trains. When we go on a airplane we say, “Get on the
airplane.”, and when we leave the airplane we say, “Get off.” We also do the same for trains. You get on a train, and you get off of a train. So once you’re in a vehicle you’ll often drive
away, which means to leave, and then when you return you usually drive in. Sometimes when you’re driving you’ll run over
something. Oops! I accidentally ran over something. If you think I’m too close to you, you might
want me to back away. So my truck is getting old, and it’s starting
to fall apart. You can see all this rust here. It’s all just falling apart. When I’m standing here, if I turn around I’m
able to see the river. If I turn around again, I’m able to see you
guys. So you’ll notice if I hold on to this pen
it stays right here, but if I let go it falls down. I just picked it up. If I let go of this bike it will fall over. Sorry bike! By the way, we’re about halfway, if you don’t
know who I am, I’m Bob the Canadian. If you haven’t subscribed to my channel you
can do that by clicking that red button below, and if you haven’t given me a thumbs up yet,
please do! Oh look! A pen! So when you see something like this pen laying
here you can pick up the pen. If you don’t wanna keep it, you can put down
the pen. You could pick up the pen and you could set
down the pen. A lot of times before I go out I need to pick
out which jacket I’m going to wear. Should I pick out a grey one or should I pick
out a blue one? I know whenever I pick out a shirt, I usually
pick a blue one. Sometimes when you’re talking to people and
things aren’t going well you decide you just need to walk away. And sometimes, it’s nice to walk up to people
so that you can talk to them. Sometimes when I’m sitting on the couch watching
a little bit of television I fall asleep, then a little while later I wake up. Sometimes I decide that it’s time to get up
off the couch. Sometimes when I’m outside I like to point
out things that I want people to look at. If I point over there you can see the river. In order for me to listen to the radio I need
to plug in this cord, and if I’m done listening to it I can unplug it. That’s not a phrasal verb, but that’s what
it is anyways. Unplug. So I’m not sure how many verbs we’ve done,
but I think it’s time for me to just sit back and relax for a little bit. Ok, now I might just sit up and pay attention. So I’m going to try and lift this cement block
ten times. So I’m going to get started, that means to
begin. One. Two. Ugh, I think I’m gonna give up now, that means
to quit. Sometimes my kids take out the milk and I
get angry because they didn’t put back the milk. If you leave the milk out it gets warm, and
eventually it starts to smell funny. I always put back the milk. When you get home from the grocery store you
need to put away the groceries. It’s nice to have all your groceries in the
cupboard. But when you’re hungry you need to get out
the bread so that you can make a sandwich. So I actually borrowed these keys from Jen. When I go in the house I’m going to give back
the keys. I’m going to return them to her. Every once in awhile I need to fill up my
van with gas. At night when it’s dark sometimes we have
to turn on a light. When we go to bed we turn off the light. Sometimes I like to hang up pictures on my
wall, but sometimes they get old and then I take down the picture and I put a new one
in. This is the volume button. I use this button to turn up the TV if I want
it to be louder, and I use this button to turn down the TV if I want it to be quieter. Well, hey, it’s time for the last one. It’s time to finish up this video. Bob the Canadian here. That was over 50 phrasal verbs. I tried to act them all out as best as possible. If you have not yet, please subscribe to this
