52 Phrasal Verbs in Under 5 Minutes (Meet Dave!)

52 Phrasal Verbs in Under 5 Minutes (Meet Dave!)


– [Jack] Hello, this is
Jack from tofluency.com and welcome to this English lesson where you are going to see maybe 50 to 100 phrasal
verbs in this lesson. And you are going to
learn these phrasal verbs from a story, a story
about my friend Dave. Now my friend Dave is a
pretty interesting guy. And what I’m going to do is tell you about one of his days recently. I’m going to show you some video footage from that day as well. Now to get the most out of
this lesson, turn on subtitles. And then also check out the description for a list of all the phrasal verbs that we use in this lesson. Okay, are you ready? Let’s go. Today is Tuesday. Or Tuesday in American English. And Dave’s alarm goes off at 4:30 a.m. As soon as he gets up, he
turns on the coffee machine. But today he has run out of cream. He usually likes cream in his coffee, so he’s not had the best start to the day. But he drinks his coffee anyway. And now it is time to work out. Now most people, if they
work out in the morning, they’ll just do a few exercises. But Dave is different. He sets off on his 20-mile run, breathing in the ocean air as he runs along the ocean front. Again, his goal is to run 20 miles. After 15, he’s running out
of energy and motivation. But this is Dave, so he doesn’t give up. After his run, he bangs out
100 push-ups without stopping. He takes a quick breath
and then carries on, doing another 100, and then another. He gets home, turns on the shower, jumps in, dries himself off, and then has another coffee. It’s now 10 a.m. and it’s
time to focus on work. He opens up his computer,
logs in to his emails, and responds to his clients’ questions. In his inbox there are six
speaking opportunities. He turns down five as they
just don’t pay enough. He agrees to do one as it pay
him exactly what he is after. But he has to iron out a few details. He remembers that he has a
speaking engagement next week, so he looks up flights to New York, where the speaking engagement is. And he soon realizes he doesn’t have time to shop around for the best deal. So instead, he fills out the form and books the fight, business class. It’s now time to get on with
writing his presentation. He doesn’t want to put
this off until tomorrow or until next week. Now in the past, he would have a cigarette while writing his presentation. But he gave them up a few years ago because this is Dave, the new Dave. It’s time to prepare his lunch, so he warms up leftover
pasta from the night before. And once it’s ready, he
digs in and finishes it within about three minutes. The afternoon is dragging on a bit, so he makes another coffee. This time, he adds in a little honey. He spends the rest of the afternoon finishing up his presentation. Once that is done, it’s
now time to chill out for the rest of the evening. So he decides to text his friend to see if she want to hang out for the rest of the day. She agrees and he heads
out just before five and sets off for his friend’s house. He hasn’t seen her for a while, so he’s looking forward to catching up. They grew up together and he’s worried about them growing apart. So he’s very excited about seeing her. When he gets there, he
pops in for a few minutes. They decide to eat out, so they head out to this new, exciting restaurant. They order some appetizers. Dave is starving at this
point, so he wolfs them down. Sara only picks at them. They then go through the menu again and pick out a main meal to share. Sara then knocks back a couple
of very expensive cocktails, but Dave just drinks water. He’s trying to cut out
alcohol during the week, which is pretty smart. Before heading back home,
they decide to take a walk along the ocean and they actually run into an old friend from school who is there with other
friends around a campfire. They decide to stay out
a little bit longer, and then Dave drops Sara off at her home and drives back home. When Dave gets home, he has enough time to write down what he has learned during that day in his journal. He then turns off the
lights, gets into bed, and passes out immediately. Today has been a good day. If you have enjoyed this lesson, then please like and share
it with your friends. And, like I said before,
check out the description so that you can get the
list of the phrasal verbs that I’ve used in this video. And then check out another
phrasal verb lesson. I’ll leave those on your screen now. Thank you again for watching. Speak to you soon, bye-bye.
