  • Hi guys. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on five phrasal verbs

  • with "get". If you are watching this, you know that phrasal verbs are one of the most

  • difficult things to master in English because they often have an idiomatic meaning. So today,

  • we're going to look at five of them, and they all have "get" in some way. No. 1 is "get

  • up". If you've been studying for a while, you might be familiar with this verb. "I got

  • up late today." What do you think this means, "I got up late today"? Right. It means "to

  • rise from your bed", right? "To get up" is "to rise from bed". And not only from bed.

  • You can get up from any position where you are lying down. So, to "rise from bed", or

  • really any lying position. Okay. You can also get up from a chair as well, if you're sitting.

  • That is the meaning of "get up". You can ask your friend, "Hey, what time did you get up

  • today?" "I got up at 7 a.m. or at 6 a.m.", whatever it is.

  • Okay, No. 2, we have "get along", and this can be by itself, or you can add "with". You

  • can "get along with" a person, "with" someone. Sorry about that. For example, "My sister

  • gets along with everybody". What do you think the meaning of this is? Okay. Do you think

  • she has a good relationship, or do you think she has a bad relationship? Well, the meaning

  • is she has a good relationship with everybody. So to "get along" or to "get along with" someone

  • is to have a good relationship with -- I'm just going to put "S/O" for "someone". Okay.

  • For example, if you "get along" with -- well, of course, you "get along with" your friends.

  • You can get along with anybody -- I mean anybody that you know in your life. If you have a

  • good relationship with them, you can say, "Yeah we get along". The negative is, "I don't

  • get along with" that person, or "we don't get along". So you can say, "We don't get

  • along", or "We get along". Or if you want to add "with": "Yeah, I get along with her",

  • or "I get along with him", or "we don't get along together", as well. Okay.

  • No. 3, we have "get ahead". All right. Example: "If you want to get ahead, work hard." "You

  • have to work hard if you want to get ahead." If you look at the context of this sentence,

  • you might be able to figure out the meaning, and in this situation, "get ahead" means "to

  • succeed" or "make progress". So if you work in a company, and you are "getting ahead"

  • in the company, it means that you started at the bottom, and you're working your way

  • up, up, up, the ladder. Then you are "getting ahead" in the company. You can "get ahead"

  • in life even. Make progress. Succeed at something. Get further than other people, for example.

  • Next, we have "get by". "Can you get by without your cell phone?" If you look at the context

  • of this sentence, can you identify the meaning? Okay. It means "to survive". Okay. If I ask

  • you, "Can you get by without your cell phone?", basically I am asking you if you can survive

  • without your cell phone. If I ask you, "How do you get by without the Internet?" "How

  • do you get by without your cell phone?" Or, "How do you get by without Facebook?" How

  • do you survive without these things that are wonderful in the modern world? So how do you

  • survive. Okay. I can also ask you, "Do you think you could get by with only $20 for one

  • week?" If that's possible, right? Okay. Finally, we have a pretty simple one, I think.

  • And that is "get together". When two people get together, it means that -- well, let's

  • look at the sentence first. "We are getting together for coffee later". Get together.

  • Okay. This means "we are meeting", "to meet". Okay. When you get together with your friends,

  • you are meeting your friends in one location, in one place. "Get together" can also have

  • another meaning when you are talking about two people who are dating; who are seeing

  • each other. And that means the first time they met. For example, if I ask you, "When

  • did you and your wife, or when did you and you husband, or when did you and your boyfriend

  • or girlfriend get together?" This means, "When did you meet for the first time?" Okay. So

  • it can also just mean "to meet". I can say, "Let's get together later".

  • All right, guys. To review, we have "get up", which is to get up from your bed, to rise

  • from a lying position or a sitting position. We have to "get along" with someone, which

  • is to have a good relationship. To "get ahead": this means to succeed or to make progress

  • in some aspect of your life. To "get by" is to survive, you know. If I ask you, again,

  • "How are you doing?" "I am getting by." I am surviving. Not doing great, but I'm living.

  • I'm surviving. And No. 5, "get together": to meet. All right, guys. If you'd like to

  • test your understanding of this material, you can check out the quiz on,

  • as always. So good luck, and take care.
