  • This is the Rachel’s English 30-Day Challenge!

  • Learn 30 phrasal verbs in 30 days!

  • Jumpstart your vocabulary in 2017.

  • Today is Day 16 and we're studying "head" phrasal verbs.

  • Head. The noun head is this.

  • That’s one of the meanings. You probably know that.

  • As a phrasal verb, it has meanings completely unrelated to the body part.

  • Head back. Well, it has nothing to do with the back of the head.

  • It means to return to start the journey back to where you were.

  • Maybe you've gone out for walk and you say "I’m starting to feel tired. Why don’t we head back?"

  • I’m going to head back around 7.

  • Head out has a similar meaning. It means to leave,

  • but it refers to the place that you are, not the place that youre returning to.

  • If you say “I’m going to head out”, no one has to know where youre going.

  • But if you say “I’m going to head back,” then youre returning somewhere,

  • and whomever youre talking to knows where youre going.

  • I think it’s time to head out, I don’t want to be late.

  • Head for or towards. Again, movement, a direction.

  • You can use it literally: Let’s head for the lake.

  • You can also use it figuratively: I’d like to head towards a solution to this problem.

  • Head offhas nothing to do withoff with his head!”

  • It means to prevent something from happening. Theyre trying to head off the publication of my article.

  • You can also use it with people, to prevent them from going somewhere.

  • Try to head her off at the door, I don’t want her to see the painting until I’m done with it.

  • We can also usehead offjust likehead out’, to leave.

  • Well, I guess it’s time to head off.

  • Head up, head down. Head down means, similar to head out or head back, movement in a direction.

  • We use it with road, path. If youre giving directions, you might say, "You want to head down I-95 to exit 40."

  • We also use it figuratively: Let’s say youre visiting a town where someone you know lives,

  • but you don’t know that person well, maybe you don’t like that person all that much.

  • A friend asks you if you want to give that person a call when you arrive.

  • You could say, I don’t want to head down that road. I don’t want to have to visit her every time I’m in town.

  • Head up doesn’t have anything to do with movement or direction.

  • We use it to mean to be in charge of something.

  • She’s going to head up our marketing division.

  • You can also use this without up: She’s going to head the team.

  • Head. H sound a very light sound of air passing through the vocal cords.

  • Then the EH vowel. Jaw drops, tongue tip stays down, middle part of the tongue lifts a bit

  • Eh-- eh-- hea-- head.

  • And the D sound. Tongue goes to the roof of the mouth, dd--

  • we voice the vocal cords, --dd and you can release lightly, head.
