527 – Using Grab

MichaelADIdioms, Vocabulary

Hey guys it’s Michael here from Happy English and I’m back with another podcast English lesson. First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who stopped by yesterday’s YouTube Live to help me celebrate my mom’s 90th birthday. She had a great time chatting and answering everyone’s questions. Thanks guys! Oh and by the way, do you know about the Master Learners Podcast Transcript package? It has the word for word transcripts of the first 500 podcasts in this series. And coming up in a couple of weeks, I’m going to be adding podcasts 501 through 525 to that package. If you have already purchased that package these additional 25 podcasts transcripts are free for you. That’s right. With this package, you pay one time and you get the endless supply of podcast transcripts. I’ll let you know when that new update is ready to go.

Today I’d like to take a look at the verb “grab.” We can use grab in a number of different and interesting ways in every day conversational English, so, let’s check it out.

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details.

  • When you ride a roller coaster you should grab the bar.
  • When I drive during a snow storm I grab the steering wheel very tightly.
  • Grab the pole when you take a subway in New York.
