Hi everyone. In this video of phrasal verbs, we will be
focusing on six new phrasal verbs from the book, “Phrasal Verbs with Pictures”. We will analyze their meanings, make some
sentences, do some exercises and lastly, watch some movie scenes
where these phrasal verbs are used. Before we start, please remember that this
video comes with subtitles in many languages and yours can be one of them. You can go to the setting and activate subtitles
any time you want. So if you’re ready, sit back and
enjoy the class. All right, well… Here is a list of today’s phrasal verbs: Back away, blow up, back off, back up, bail out, black
out, blow away Let’s get started with the first one… Back away or back off have the same meaning,
which is “to move backwards” or “to retreat”. We can easily guess this meaning by looking
at the word “back” in both of them. Let’s have a look at its example in the
book: Don’t cross the yellow line sir. Please back away! Sorry my friend. I didn’t notice it was yellow. I thought it was black!!! Who is this blind man? And why does it say “RAY” on the wall? And why do you think the railway looks like
a piano keyboard? I expect your answers in the comments. Back up has three different meanings. The first one is, “to make a copy of digital
information”. But, and this is important, it is not used
to indicate fraud, but the make a copy of it just in case something happens to the original
file. Look at this example:
I get so annoyed when I lose work because I’ve forgotten to back it up. Its second meaning is “to support someone
or something”. For example: His wife always backed him up with her endless encouragement. And the third meaning of back up is
“to move back”. When it’s used in this sense, back up is
a synonym of “back away” and “back off”, which we have just learned. Let’s give an example: I backed up carefully until I felt the wall
against my back. Bail out has two meanings and the first one
of them is “to free someone who has been arrested”. We don’t do this by helping him escape the
prison, but by paying a certain amount of money determined by the judge. Let’s make a sentence with it: He has been jailed eight times.
Each time, friends bailed him out. The second meaning of bail out is “to get
someone or something out of trouble”. Okay, cool! Let’s take a look at this sentence: They will discuss how to bail the economy out of its slump. Okay, now… The most common meaning of black out is
“to fall unconscious” or “to pass out”. “I’m gonna pass out…” Pass out is also a phrasal verb and we can
easily use the verb “faint” to give a similar meaning. Here is an example: I was about to black out, but the nurse held my arm at the last minute. Blow away has two different meanings. One of them is, “to impress deeply”. But of course in a good way as in this example: She just totally blew me away with her singing. Its other meaning is “to kill someone or
something by gunshot”, but not in a good way this time… This second meaning is usually preferred in
informal language or slang. We can see it in this example here: He’d like to get hold of a gun and blow them all away. Blow up also has two meanings. First one is “to inflate something”. We do this by blowing air into something either
by our mouth, or by a pump-like instrument. Let’s take a look at this example: Other than blowing up a tire I hadn’t done any car maintenance. The second meaning of blow up is
“to explode something”. So, we can easily say that if we blow up a
balloon with excessive air, we may just blow it up. Here comes an example: Breaking news:
He was jailed for 45 years for trying to blow up a plane. And here is a quick summary: Back away: to move backwards, to
retreat Back up: to make a copy of digital information,
to support someone or something, to move back Bail out: to free someone who has been arrested,
to get someone or something out of trouble Black out: to fall unconscious, to pass out
Blow away: to impress deeply, to kill someone or something by gunshot
Blow up: to inflate something, to explode something Okay, cool! Now that we are done with all six phrasal
verbs in this unit, it’s time to do some exercises. We are going to solve one of each four different
types of exercises in the book: Multiple choice, Fill in the blanks, Synonym and Translation. Great!
Let’s get started! Your answers to these exercises go in the
comments. So, how about seeing these phrasal verbs
in action? Wouldn’t it be awesome to see people use
them in actual dialogs? Well, I do think so, and that’s why I compiled
scenes from different films where they are used first hand. So, with no further ado,
let’s get on with it! Back off! No. You back off! This is my swamp. Our swamp. Back up. Face down on the floor right now! Back away from the fence. What are you doing? Boris is on-line, backing up his files. We’re seeing heavily armed private security
forces… Being deployed into District 9, backed up
by significant air support. I can’t hear you, buddy. Back me up. lt’s about time to bail out of this ship. Damn. Prison changed you. Thanks for bailing me out. Now, clean up and make yourself presentable. For whom? Friends in high places. They’re the ones who bailed you out. Something must have happened. Something set him off. I blacked it out. Don’t try to use your blackouts to get out
of this one. Especially because, ever since I blacked out at the cafeteria It’s been getting worse. But he kept talking and talking, being such
a nag… And then I just blacked out. She’s gonna blow him away. Baby, this is going to blow them all away. It’s a neural net processor. This is amazing. It just blows me away. She tried to blow up a computer factory but
got shot and arrested. I believe the plan is to blow up the headquarters
of these credit card companies. And the TRW building. Okay… If you want to see all these phrasal verbs
