Well hey there I'm Emma from mmmEnglish!
Today I've got another short and snappy lesson for you.
We're going to go over ten common collocations
with the verb, 'take'.
So really simply, collocations are words that are often
used together in everyday language.
So if you're learning English as a second language, then
learning collocations is a really useful way to practise
using English words together correctly.
So for example, in English we use the verb 'take' with
'photo', right? We take photos.
We don't say "Do a photo" or "Make a photo" or
"Click a photo"
So by learning words in groups, together with the words
that they are often used with,
well, you're going to be taking a huge step towards
sounding more fluent and more natural
when you use English.
Today we're going to focus on the verb, 'take'.
Now that is a super common English verb, right?
But it means that it's also really noticeable
if you start using it a little weirdly in English sentences.
So let's dive in!
Before we get started, a super quick reminder to
turn on the subtitles down there if you need to.
This lesson is going to be quick and really helpful
for others learning English in your country,
so if you're an absolute champion and you can
translate this lesson for them,
so that they can watch it as well,
that would be amazing!
Not to mention, it will be excellent practice for you.
So the link to translate the video is in the description
and your name will appear at the bottom
of the description as a contributor to this lesson.
Alright, first up
I'm going to highlight some nouns which are often
used with the verb 'take'.
We take advice. We take a break.
We take an interest. We take a look,
a class, a test.
These are really common nouns that the verb
'take' is used with.
Now when you take someone's advice,
you listen to them.
You follow their recommendations, you do
what they say that you should do.
Don't take her advice about money, she has no idea.
Now if you're giving advice to someone
and you want them to know that you've got
the experience on this issue
and you know what you're talking about, you can say
"Take it from me"
Take it from me, I know what I'm talking about.
Now here in this sentence, 'it' is actually in place
of 'advice'. You're saying take advice from me.
Take my advice because I have the experience.
When you take an interest in something, well
you're interested in it, right?
My fiance Shah is an excellent cook, lucky me,
but it's his hobby. He loves to cook.
He started to take an interest in cooking
when he was a young boy.
His grandmother taught him how to cook so he's
always been in the kitchen with his nenek cooking.
What did you take an interest in when you were younger
Let me know in the comments, I'm curious.
Things take time.
People are always telling you that when you're impatient
about something, aren't they?
Actually, the verb 'take' comes up quite a bit
when we're talking about time.
It took some time to find the dog
after it escaped from the yard.
Becoming fluent in English takes time.
But if you practise consistently, you can definitely do it!
Also, we take time off, when we go on holiday
or we stop working for a while.
Did you take any time off over the summer?
Where did you go?
Gosh I'm waiting for summer down here in Australia.
We also take a break, alright?
We put our feet up, we relax, we stop working, right?
Take a break.
We also take classes.
You know that I've been taking Spanish classes
with Lingoda for three months, right?
With Lingoda, you can take your time or you can take
classes daily and complete the Language Marathon,
which is about to start by the way.
I've left a link in the description of this video.
I think that you should take a look.
Speaking of take a look,
we use this expression
when we look at something or someone but
especially in a really quick or an informal way.
Can you take a look at this email I wrote?
Do you think it's clear?
I need to take a look at the map
before we go any further. I don't want to get us lost.
Alight let's talk about these really great expressions:
to take charge,
to take control of something, alright?
When someone takes charge or they take control
they're able to manage something, usually a situation
or a project or something like that.
Sometimes even a group of people like a class
or a team.
And you'll also hear "take the lead" used in a similar way.
These are all really great expressions
to talk about leadership.
As the teacher,
he needs to take control of the class.
Can you take charge of the money?
I don't trust myself to look after it.
My boss just asked me to take the lead on our next
project. I'm really excited about it.
Hey, take it easy. Relax, okay?
Don't push yourself too hard.
Don't worry. Don't stress too much.
You need to take it easy for a few days
after your operation.
Take it easy.
But this expression can also be used to tell someone
who's being quite aggressive to stop, to calm down.
Take it easy. Relax.
Plus, you'll also hear people using this word
or this expression really informally as a farewell.
They'll say "See you later, take it easy!"
Alright so we went through quite a few expressions
today using 'take'.
Hopefully, you'd take away a few new ones
to practise with.
Can you think of any other common expressions
in English using 'take'?
Anything I haven't gone through in this lesson?
