Hola weonas y weones, welcome to English Made Simple, this is episode 6, numero Seis.

Oopsy daisy. Who said that? Goodness my, Milena, what’s wrong with you today? What happend to the “nice Milena” hola chicos, hola muchachos. What happened (Qué pasó?)

Hey I’m just speaking Chilean. Don’t….  don’t blame me this is Chileno language, it’s not Spanish, it’s Chilean. That’s what I say to my friends, hahaha

Alright it’s a little joke I’ve noticed that people here in Chile refer to each other as weon o weones, but I have a feeling this is not a nice word to say. Maybe it’s a little bit rude or arrogant I don’t know what the equivalent of this would be in Australia or New Zealand maybe a buddy or mate or hey buddy or hey man what’s up? wha’s up? Wassssup? Haha

It’s interesting to learn language is really interesting I wasn’t prepared before I came here I wasn’t prepared to learn Chilean but now estoy cachando, a lot!

Hey guys thank you so much for joining into my episode episode 6 I can’t believe it is episode six whaaaaaat? But now we are here and I’m going to change the tune a little bit.

Hey I want to introduce a new a new way of doing the show we are going to do we are going to learn we are going to learn about phrasal verbs! phrasal verbs!sounds so exciting oh my God what is phrasal verbs…. don’t ask me!! what are phrasal verbs? I’m going to check Cambridge. Good old Cambridge dictionary online. yay! I’m so excited okay so Cambridge dictionary online tells us what is a phrasal verb… what in the world is a phrasal verb?

A phrase that consists of…. Ok so this is how it goes….

It’s a phrase that consists of a verb with preposition or adverb or both, the meaning of which is different to the meaning of its separate parts. Oh my goodness did you get that because I didn’t I have no idea what this means it is too intelligent for me it is too smart for me I’m not so I don’t know I have to read it again a phrase that consists of a verb with your position but hey I got that that simple or adverb or both the meaning of it is different to the meaning of its separate parts

Whaaaaat?? I have no idea but you know what if you Google Cambridge dictionary online just search for phrasal verb definition you’ll see that there’s  2.17 million people who like this page, 2.17 million people who Are boring and like this page Cambridge Dictionary okay I have to say Cambridge Dictionary it is not so bad but it is very boring (aburrido) haha okay it’s going to be my intellectual weon and it’s going to be my intellectual buddy, Cambridge oh oh jolly good haha Cambridge dictionary online hahaha

So did everybody understand with phrasal verb is okay you know what I’m going to get out of Cambridge Dictionary and I’m going to Simply say a phrasal verb is a verb plus a preposition so that is a simple way to understand it now English language is really funny isn’t it you have to write to words to mean one thing like for example to wake up in the morning when you wake up in the morning so the 2 words wake up mean despertarse, so there is 1 word in Spanish but there’re 2 words in English. And you know what English always has so many words and it is so confusing sometimes, wake up get up check out look for look into and they all have different meanings it’s not just look to wake up means despertarse and wake up is a very common phrasal verb so here’s a tip for you guys if you want to sound like a native speaker if you want to speak like a native You have to use phrasal verbs phrasal verbs are used on a daily basis every day so when I talk to my friends I will use phrasal verbs all the time and that’s what makes you sound fluent okay I’ll give you this example of waking up.

So Today….I … not today…cuz I forgot what time I woke up today, I usually wake up at 10 a.m. because I am so floja, Soy floja (lazy), 10 a.m. is actually quite late for a morning I woke up at 10 a.m. but I get up at 10:30 so get up is another phrasal verb and it means levantarse. So I wake up

At 10am but I get up at 10.30. So I physically have to get up at 10:30 I also have to get out of bed as well and the other one that I can use as well is stand up I have to stand up pararse.

And also when I brush my teeth I have to stand up pararse, cepillar mis dientes.

So here we go in one morning I had to use I could use 3 or 4 different phrasal verbs and they all mean well if you translate to Spanish you don’t need to use 2 words to mean one thing in Spanish as well as in any other normal language you would use 1 words I know in my native language

we have to use we use 1 word, to wake up we use something else we don’t use two words. So, English language is really funny in that way also another way Is that it’s you know the spelling is a nightmare una pesadilla! Haha Spelling is a nightmare it’s very common in English to write words palabras with 5 letters for example they could be some with more or less but with 5 letters for example the word “through” to go through something, a travesar,  through for example has five letters, uhm five? I don’t know. Haha THROUGH. No 7 Letters. Has 7 letters and we only pronounce 3 isn’t that crazy you have to remember how to spell each word you have to rely on your memory all the time. Alright! alright so was that interesting? was that fun? so I’m going to ask you this question what time do you wake up? what is your typical morning? can you explain that to me in English okay try that and let me know what you think of this episode I’d like to hear from you guys it makes me really happy when I get a nice comment from you guys it keeps me going alright guys thank you so much and I hope to see you in the next one! bye bye!
