PHRASAL VERBS FOR ROMANCE (HIT ON SOMEONE)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? I hope it was fantastic. 

This Thursday is Valentine's Day. To celebrate, we are looking at Phrasal Verbs related to romance this week.

We begin with the colloquial phrasal verb TO HIT ON SOMEONE.

Definition: To show romantic interest in someone. 

Example 1: I think your brother is hitting on the bartender. 

Example 2: A guy on the train hit on me today. 

This phrasal verb is TRANSITIVE and is INSEPARABLE

Here's a fun fact: do you remember the Britney Spears song where she says, "hit me baby, one more time?" The writer of the song was Swedish. He meant to write about
hitting ON someone, not actually hitting someone. This phrasal verb mistake didn't matter: it was still the song that made her famous. 

That's all for today. Thank you for reading!

SPOT THE ERROR, CONDITIONALS V

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back! It's Friday: I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.

Today is our last lesson of the Spot-the-Error with Conditionals week. Today we are not going to give you a hint by telling you the type of Conditional. You have to say what's wrong with it AND tell us the type of Conditional the sentence includes. To correct the sentence, you should make the fewest amount of corrections possible.

Here's your sentence: If I see your mom, I give her a hug for you. 

Can you see what’s wrong with this sentence? After correcting the sentence, also tell us which Conditional this is.

Give us your answers on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later.
