Конспект урока "Types of film"

Hello, guys! I hope you're keeping well!

In today’s lesson we’ll take a look at phrasal verbs that use the word KEEP, their definitions and of course, many examples.

Then we’re going to look at some common confusing words and fully explain all these chains of words.

First, let’s revise what the phrasal verbs are.

Phrasal verbs are very common in spoken and written English. So we need them to understand and speak natural English.

Phrasal verb is a verb followed by a preposition or an adverb; the combination creates a meaning different from the original verb.

The verbs with KEEP are very popular in English language.

In its primary meaning the phrasal verb KEEP is translated as «хранить, держать».

But if it is used with the prepositions, it has a completely different meaning and some of them have more than one. So let’s consider some of them.

KEEP AROUND means to keep something near you.

I keep a dictionary around when I’m doing my homework.

KEEP AT something means to continue doing something even if it is hard or unpleasant.

Learning phrasal verbs is hard so you have to keep at it every day.
