Phần này sẽ giúp các bạn dễ hiểu hơn về cách sử dụng các phrasal Verbs
August is a month for holidays in many countries, so I thought it would be nice to look at some phrasal verbs and other multi-word verbs connected with going on holiday. (By the way, holiday is a British English word – Americans take vacations.)
One very simple phrasal verb connected with holidays is go away. If we ask someone ‘Are you going away this summer?’, we are asking about their holiday plans; it is not a general enquiry about them going somewhere. We use get away in a similar way:
I hope to get away for a few days soon.
Lots of people lead busy lives, and a holiday is a chance to wind down(relax). Other, rather informal phrasal verbs for relaxing are kick back and chill out. If we have a job, we take some time off.
When we begin our holiday, we set off on the journey to get there. We can also use head off:
They headed off for a week in the sun.
If you travel by plane, you have to check in online or at the airport. You often have to hang around or wait around at the airport, which can be boring, but once the plane takes off (leaves the ground), you are on your way. When the plane lands, we can say it touches down. We use get in/into to talk about a train, bus or ship arriving somewhere:
What time does the train get in?
The ferry gets into Dover at 17:30.
When you arrive at your holiday destination, you will probably check into your hotel. Then you might go and check out the neighbourhood, and maybe even hire a guide to show you around. One great thing about travel is meeting new people, so if you are going abroad, you might try to polish up or brush up (on) your language skills before you go.
Some people enjoy staying active and like to pack a lot into their holidays (do lots of things), while others prefer to laze around, just soaking up(experiencing) the atmosphere or taking in (looking at) the view. You might choose to while away (spend lazily) your days wandering round a lovely old town, or soaking up the sun on the beach.
Holidays are a time when we are kind to ourselves – for example we probably eat out (have meals in restaurants) more than we do at home, and we might indulge in rich foods that we normally avoid. We might treat ourselves to a particularly enjoyable experience in order to round off the holiday (finish it in a good way), though if we enjoy ourselves too much, we may be tempted to stay on (not go home when we intended to)!
