英会話ブログ その554     Phrasal  Verbs (1)

2014/12/22

Phrasal verbs are phrases that include a verb and another element, such as a preposition.  

For example, "to jump up" or "to write down".  These verbs can be confusing for learners of English because Japanese learners often think that the two parts of the phrasal verb are separate and not related.  It is therefore important to memorize phrasal verbs in order to avoid confusion in the future.

  - To warm up

This phrasal verb is used to describe the slow and easy exercise you should do before a difficult sport activity such as lifting heavy weights, running a long distance or playing a competitive game.  You are literally warming up the temperatrure of your muscles slowly to get them ready for activity.

  " The professional runners warm up before each race.  They go for a slow run for 15 minutes, and they stretch their muscles before the races begin. "                                (J.F)
