Technology Phrasal Verbs for Computers & the Internet

Today, I want to talk to you about some useful
phrasal verbs that you may use every day That’s coming up. What’s up everyone? My name is
Wes. This is Interactive English, which is all about helping you practice
and improve your English skills. And today I want to talk to you about
some useful phrasal verbs that are related to the computer, to the internet,
to technology in general, which is why I said you may use these
every day because we use the computer all the time. So the first phrasal verb
that I want to talk to you about, well actually a couple of phrasal verbs
that have the same meaning is log in and sign in. And what this means is just to access a
computer or even a site using a name and a password. When you first
start using the computer, you may need to log in and then if
you perhaps want to go to a website, you might have to sign into that website, Anonymous 821 signed in to
multiple accounts on standing by. I logged into Hoytsman’s computer
and flooded it with Thai pornography. Then we have to click on and that just
means to move the mouse over to an application to a link
and then you select it. You click on the application
or you click on the link, Just click on the enchanted boots
to put them on. I don’t know. Can I see them in another
color? Just click on them. Next we have scroll up and scroll down
and this just means to move to the top or bottom of a site or a
text. So for example, If you’re using a document you
might need to scroll down to find more information or keep reading or maybe if
you miss something then you would scroll back up. Okay, wait a minute. What happens if you scroll down? How about if you scroll up? You can also scroll through a site or a
document and this just means to go through it. To go up and down. Usually because you’re looking for
some specific information and you are scrolling through the site. In order
to find the information that you need. I will take a silent face journey as I
scroll through this comment section. And scroll through the onscreen menu. You should scroll through the
pictures on my husband’s phone. So because we’re talking about
computers, the internet technology, I want to tell you about a
great opportunity to help
you improve your English. And a way that you can do that is by
taking some online classes with Lingoda, which is a language school where you
can take lessons in English, German, Spanish or French. And I’ve
even studied at Lingoda. So I can tell you it is a great
place to learn a language. So with lingo Goda you have many options
when it comes to learning English and if you’d like to learn a lot
in a short period of time, then I would suggest that you check out
the Lingoda sprint because this is the best way to quickly improve
your English skills. Now Lingoda two gives you two
different options to choose from. You can take the sprint in which you’ll
take 15 classes a month for three months, so you will pay each month. If you take each and every class and
successfully complete the sprint, then you will be eligible for a 50%
refund. Now if you’re thinking, I, I really want to challenge myself,
I want to learn as much as I can, then I would recommend the super sprint
in which you will take one class each day for 90 days. So every month
you will pay for the classes. But if you take all 90 classes and
successfully complete the super sprint, then you will be eligible for a
100% refund. Now when you sign up, you will need to pay a 49 euro
deposit in order to secure your spot. But this 49 euro will be taken
off your first month’s payment. But for all of you here
at Interactive English, you can use the voucher code SPRINT7
to get a 10 euro discount on your deposit. So click on the link in the description
to find out more information about costs, schedules, as well as how to get that 100% refund
and of course use that voucher code SPRINT7 to get your 10 Euro discount
and really begin taking your English to the next level. The next phrasal verb that I have for
you is to back up and oftentimes you’re talking about backing up your computer
or backing up your hard drive and this just means to keep an extra copy
of information for safekeeping. Every now and then I need
to back up my computer. I need to save that information in
case something happens or maybe you say you’re going to back up your hard drive, which is where the information is stored
and you are going to back everything up because you definitely
don’t want to lose it. It’s always smart to back up your
computer. Every time it’s triggered, I get a text like a Google alert, I don’t even know what you’re talking about. You know he backs up his hard
drive every night, right? What are you doing? Backing up the hard
drive. It’s a good habit to get into. Next is hack into and when somebody hacks
into another computer or even a site, then that just means they are illegally
accessing a computer or they’re illegally connecting to
some kind of network. So it’s not a good thing. I hope that you are not trying to hack
into someone else’s computer in order to steal information. but this is a phrasal verb that you may
definitely hear if you’re watching a movie or a TV show and somebody is trying
to illegally access some information. They may hack into the computer
or maybe hack into the network. He hacked into our system. You hacked into her computer. I’m hacking into the phone’s camera now.
That’s it. That’s a livestream. Monica hacked into our server. Okay. Please don’t tell me that you
hacked into end frames system. I won’t tell you that. Well did
you hack into it or not? Sheldon, that computer is used for national defense hacking into it is a federal crime. Then we have the phrasal verb run out
of and this just means to decrease the supply of something. When
talking about computers, it’s common to hear someone say
that they are running out of space. They use the computer all the time. They’re storing all this information
and photos and they begin to run out of space. Now this is a phrasal verb that you can
use in a variety of different contexts, but it has the same meaning. For example, you might run out of gas if you’re driving
a car or maybe here at home I might run out of milk, which is true. I am running out of milk so I need to go
to the store. The supply is decreasing. But when you’re talking about a computer, people would say they’re
running out of space. Apparently the net has run out of webspace
and they don’t have enough bytes left to add my name. Now, if you’re
trying to create more space, you might use the phrasal verb free up
and you’re trying to free up space and make it available so that you can continue
to save photos and other information on the computer. You need
to free up some space. We can also use this phrasal verb and
a variety of other situations as well. For example, you may need to free up some of your time
and you make it available so that you can do other things. But when talking
about computers, it’s all about the, the space that you have, the memory. Most of the time people free
up space by deleting things, but just make sure that’s why it’s good
to back everything up so you don’t lose anything. You’re making a choice to destroy
it, to never see it again. You choose to delete because you need to
free up space because you don’t want it anymore. Next is the phrasal verb pop up. To pop up, which means just to suddenly appear. So I think it’s normal nowadays
if you are using the internet, that an advertisement will
suddenly pop up and it just appears, so this is a phrasal verb to pop up, but it can also be used as a
noun because that advertisement, the one that pops up is
referred to as a pop-up. It’s called a pop-up. But the
action to pop up is a phrasal verb. And I keep saying pop up so many times.
I hope that this is not confusing. Yeah, except when you update the software, a little window pops up and you
click okay to actually go inside there, but I’ve seen those ads
pop up on my screen. Then we have opt in and opt out and
this just means to choose to receive messages. So if you opt in,
then you are saying, yes, I will receive some messages.
If you change your mind and say, I don’t want to receive any messages
any longer than you can opt out. Opt in, opt out. What value can we offer now to the user to entice them to download the app and opt into our network? This is the butt whisperer 9,000. Cushion track. Dog walk side path. A must. Liability opt out button. Keep them coming.And drill Sergeant mode. We also have the phrasal verb filter out
and this just means to remove unwanted email messages. So if
you receive emails that, that you don’t want, you’re not
interested in these messages, then you may try to filter them out so
that you just don’t receive them anymore. Google always filters out
my emails. They think I’m a bot. And when we said someone should probably
help Eric by filtering out any negative comments he mentioned you by name. Then we have
three phrasal verbs that mean well, they all mean the same thing. So this
should be easy and that is turn off, shut down and power off.
And it just means to, to end a session on the computer
and you just stop using it. So if you’re not going to
use the computer anymore, you can turn it off or maybe you’ll shut
it down or perhaps you’ll power it off. You can use any one of these
three. In my personal opinion, I think turn off is
probably the most common, followed by shut down and then power off. It’s still used, but I don’t
think it’s as commonly used. And I’m probably going to hear from a
bunch of people in the comments say, I always say power off. I love using
that one. You can use any of them. Don’t worry about it. They all
mean the same thing. Turn off, shut down, power off. Turn off the computer and
come downstairs. I’m going to need your gimble angles Jack. Before you shut down the computer. Energy probe. Shut down, Alex. Shut down. Power off. Then we have plug in, which is a phrasal verb
specifically talking about
plugging a power cable into a socket. Plug in. So if you need to charge your battery
then you’re going to need to plug it into a socket so that you can
continue to use the computer. I don’t, I don’t think your
computer’s plugged in. I’m sorry guys. What are you doing?
Plugging in your computer. Then we have print out and if you are
printing something out then you are making a copy of something from the computer. Most of the time it’s
talking about a document. You open up a document and you
want to have that, that hard copy, so then you will need to print
it out. Print out. Look, I’ve got your advert here. I’ve printed it out. I’ve printed out some reviews. I’ve been craving Sudanese all
day. I’ll print out some menus. Then we have set up and to set something
up just means to install a new program or perhaps even assemble a computer. I don’t think that most of
us are assembling our own
computers and it’s like, Oh, I have to set up my computer. You might say that in the context of
you have a new computer and you need to move all your information from the old
computer to the new computer and all of your programs. In that case you could
say, you know, I need to set it up. I need to get everything ready
so I can start using it again. But you will see this phrasal verb when you start using a new
program for the first time, you will need to set it up on your
computer. You install it, you set it up, and then you can start using it. We set up a voice activation
system on your computer. I’m going to need so much help
setting up my computer. I’m like a total grandma. Then we have keep up with. And this is probably my favorite phrasal
verb because I think it applies to me. This is used when talking about technology
because what it means is to maintain the same of something and often I think
it’s talking about like knowledge or changes and it really applies to
technology because often people, well people like me, he might say, you know with so many changes
happening and it’s moving so fast, it’s difficult to keep up
with all of these changes. It’s difficult to keep up with all
of these updates on the computer. It’s difficult to keep up with with
all of these different forms of social media. So if you’re like me, then yes, it may be difficult to keep up with all
of these changes. I’ve been trying to keep up with her, but I’m an old ass. What
do you like about Ryan? Ryan keeps up with all the
latest technology trends
and he’s very honest with me when I put on weight. And I hope that you have no problem keeping up with our lessons because you don’t have to
sign into anything in order to watch our lessons. Now, there may be an advertisement that pops
up from time to time and you may have to watch it. But that’s just about it and I’m just
trying to use these phrasal verbs again and again because that’s just going
to help you remember their meaning. If you enjoy this lesson
and learn something new,

watching and I’ll see you next time.

  11. How do you collect
    all these video examples to back what you are saying? You can't be spending days and nights on end watching movies and TV shows to find the relevant bits. I think I once came across a very useful tool that looks for any phrase you type in across the videos on YouTube, but I can't find it now 🙁

    Does it matter
    To pronounce v like f?
    Or p like b

    It seem similar
    I can pronounce it
    But with daily speaking
    I think
    That I prounce b and f most of the time

    I am not sure if my question was clear or not?

    Thank you anyway 🙂

  16. I asked a hacker if he'd hack into Mr Wes' data. He said he wouldn't because he was very grateful to him because his excellent videos. I'm really astonished because I didn't know that thieves had gratitude.

  17. hey everyone, peace on you, mister Wes , i want to thank you so much , its very useful , every day we use this words , but , i do not know that "set up " is a phrasal verb, i considered it like one word, thank you so much.

  18. Hello teacher, this video is very helpful for me. I'm gonna to practice that today and tomorrow I will teach my students. I'm precervise teacher in English.

  19. Are there two meanings for the conjunction 'as well as'.
    Some people are of the opinion that the verb agreement is determined by the subject 'before as well as' and some people are of the opinion that the verb agreement is determined by the subject 'after aswellas ' in a sentence with the conjunction as well as.
    For example
    1)Sita aswellas her friends is going to the mall .
    2)I as well as my friends are playing.
    Please make it clear to me.
    Further,I want to know whether verb agreements depends on the first person, 2nd person and 3rd person .
    Please make it clear to me

  20. Hi Wes! Thanks a lot for your valuable contributions to our English learning process and experience. I very much admire and respect your work. Keep it up!

  21. By the way, I was trying to find information about you, but I got nothing. It would be great if you shared with who you are, where your from (city), where you studied, what motivated you to do this, and so on. It would be interesting to know about the person behind the role.

  22. I recently came across a word in Cambridge Dictionary that I can't get out of my head. Floccinaucinihilipilification… Has anyone of you ever used it? Or is it just a dictionary gimmick being mentioned solely as an example of a longest word in English? It actually describes a very common situation, especially for the Polish. We tend to like being too much critical towards others, often judging the book by its cover and deeming new thoughts or ideas worthless. I love the sound of it, but I just doubt I could ever use it without sounding like a moron…

  23. Thanks Wes!..I hope this help you:
