#2 TO BACK SOMEONE UP
Transcript for #2
Hello, this is Luke from Luke’s English Podcast and this year I’m teaching you a Phrasal Verb every day. This is phrasal verb is number two and this one is :
BACK SOMEONE UP. BACK ME UP.
“TO BACK SOMEONE UP” means to give someone support by saying or showing that you agree with them.
For example: You might say: – “BACK ME UP ON THIS ONE, WILL YOU?”
or maybe – “If I ask for more money, WILL YOU BACK ME UP?”
Okay? WILL YOU BACK ME UP, BACK ME UP ON THIS ONE.
– “He is my friend so he BACKED ME UP”
Right? – “Don’t worry, I WILL BACK YOU UP!” means – I will give you support. I will be behind you. I WILL BACK YOU UP.
Okay? There you go! There will be another one tomorrow.
That’s it for now. Bye, bye, bye
