PHRASAL VERBS

It is time to learn Phrasal verbs! Phrasal verbs are very popular in both written and spoken language. In this post, I am going to teach you 3 phrasal verbs with DOWN. 

The word down is a prepositition that combined with verbs can turn them into phrasal verbs with very different meanings.

So let’s get down to business!!

LET DOWN

This is a common phrasal verb in English which means to disappoint someone. You failed to support someone as they had hoped or expected

Let’s take a look at some examples:

I am sorry I let you down. Next time, I will be better,

My computer let me down AGAIN!

Don’t count on Peter, he always lets people down

In these sentences, you, someone, or something, failed to support or to do what they had to do.

 

BRING DOWN

Here, you have the literal meaning of this phrasal verb which is to bring an object from a high or elevated position to a lower position

You can also use this phrasal verb to give the idea of making someone sad or feeling worse emotionally. With this phrasal verb, you make someone feel sad or maybe they were already sad, but you made them feel worse.

Check out some examples

I am sorry if this movie brought you down… I thought you liked chick-flicks.

Alex was really brought down by the loss of his cousin.

 

WEAR DOWN

To make someone gradually lose their energy (feel tired) or confidence, less capable to deal with a situation.

You need to wear down your opponent.

All this stress is really wearing me down.

Peter’s persistence really wore me down. He is finally getting a new video game.
