Adventure Phrasal Verbs to Use on Your Motorcycle
I was riding my motorcycle on a wet and windy day in South Wales when I remembered it was time to write some phrasal verb lessons for the Wellington House Idiomas English Blog. But what could I write about?
As the rain ran down my helmet visor and the cold began to make me shiver, I sat and thought about fun, everyday English phrasal verbs. I held on tight to the handlebars and told my girlfriend to “JUMP ON!” That was it, I could write about motorcycle phrasal verbs!
Motorcycle Phrasal Verb No. 1 – Hold On
Example of English Phrasal Verb Hold On
“This motorcycle is very fast! Make sure you hold on! I don’t want you to fall off the back of the bike!”
Motorcycle Phrasal Verb No. 2 – Jump On
Jump On means the same as Get On and is what we say when we want somebody to sit on the motorcycle or bike or skateboard or horse. When we say “Jump On”, we are being fun and informal and it also suggests that we want the person to Jump On Very Quickly!
The opposite of Jump On/Get On is Jump Off/Get Off.
Example of English Phrasal Verb Jump On
“The sun is shining, the sky is blue, let’s jump on the motorcycle and go for a ride!”
These are two very fun English phrasal verbs. I hope you have fun using them and that your teacher gives you extra marks for using them! Read about more phrasal verbs!
