Learn the English Phrases TO BREAK IT DOWN and TO BREAK UP

Read along to practice your English and to learn the English phrases TO BREAK IT DOWN and TO BREAK UPIn this English lesson I wanted to help you learn the English phrase, "To break it down." If you say to someone that you're going to break something down for them, or if you're going to break it down for them, it means you're going to explain how to do something in smaller steps. Let's say you wanted to get your driver's license. I could break it down for you in the following way. The first thing you need to do is get the booklet that tells you how to be a good driver. Then you need to take a written test, in Ontario we call it your Beginners, and once you've passed your written test, you're allowed to drive with someone else in the car for awhile. And then eventually you go and take your road test. So if you wanted to get your driver's license in Canada that's how I would break it down. That's how I would explain to you how to do it in a bunch of smaller steps.WANT FREE ENGLISH LESSONS?

This has a completely different meaning. This means that you and someone that you like are romantically involved, you are dating and you've decided to go your separate ways. You've decided to break up. You've decided to end the relationship. So a completely different meaning compared to our first one, but also a phrase that has the word break in it. So if you break up with someone, it means that you are dating, it means that you are seeing each other, but you've decided to end the relationship. You have broken up. Sometimes it's sad. Sometimes it's a good thing.Anyways, let's review. When I use the English phrase, "To break it down," it means that I'm going to explain something in a series of smaller steps so it's easier for you to understand. And when I use the English phrase, "To break up," if I say that I think that couple is going to break up it means that I think they're going to stop dating. They're going to stop seeing each other some time in the future.Hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video. This comment is from Alex. And Alex says, "At the timestamp 3 minutes and 27 seconds, "that was a wasp." And my response was, "I think so. "At first I thought it was a bee, "but now that you mentioned it, it was probably a wasp."So I will put the video up here in the corner, or maybe I already did. In my last video, Alex is talking about a part in the video where something flew past me and I thought it was a bee but when I watched the video again, I think it was probably a wasp. I think when I look around the farm there are a lot of wasps nests. There's a lot of geese still, too. There's a lot of wasp nest. And I think that the wasps are starting to come out of their little nests after a long winter, and I think that's what it was. I couldn't zoom in far enough to see exactly what it was. But I think Alex, that you are probably right. I think it is a wasp.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/bobthecanadian)
