Speaking of traveling, the holiday is one of the most popular travel times. A lot of people take this time to visit family and friends or go on vacation. I thought this would be a great opportunity to talk about some phrasal verbs related to travels, especially if you'll be going away somewhere. If you need a review, a phrasal verb is a verb + a preposition. Phrasal verbs are really important in the English language because a single verb could change meaning when a preposition is added to it.
If you haven't already met Mr and Mrs Robinson on The English Student Instagram page, here they are! Obviously ready to get away. Take a look at their travel story below.
For many months, Mr and Mrs Robinson have wanted to get away.
Get away - Leave for a trip
After deciding they're going to take a trip to the city of Marseille, they pack up everything they'll need: sweaters, jackets, hats, shoes, camera, toiletries.
Pack up - To get everything you'll need and put them in a bag or suitcase
They get to the airport on time and the plane takes off.
Take off - When a plan leaves a destination and flies off
They land at the airport in Marseille and wait for a cab to pick them up and drop them off at the Hotel Petite.
Pick up - Get someone from a location to take them somewhere else
Drop off - Take a person to a place and leave them there
When they arrive at the hotel, the bell boy takes their luggage and guides them to the entrance of the hotel where they are required to check in. After spending five days in Marseille, Mr and Mrs Robinson are happy and rejuvenated, ready to head back home. They check out of the hotel.
Check in - Show your ID and register at a hotel to get a room and key
Check out - Let the hotel know you are ending the stay and leaving
I hope Mr and Mrs Robinson had a great trip and I hope you've found this diagram of travel phrasal verbs to be somewhat helpful, especially if you'll be traveling in the next few weeks!
