Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you some very, very useful

0:06

verbs we use when we talk about university. Okay? So if you're going to university, if

0:12

you're taking the TOEFL test or the IELTS test, these words are very, very important,

0:18

because they're very common and we use them all the time.

0:22

So, to teach you these verbs, I've decided to tell you a true story about a friend of

0:28

mine. My friend's name is Paul, and I'm going to tell you all about his university experience.

0:35

While I tell you this story, it can help you if you imagine it in your head. Whenever you're

0:42

learning new vocabulary, the more you can visualize or make a mental picture of the

0:48

words you're learning, the easier it will be to remember them. Okay? And, if my friend,

0:54

Paul, is watching this, I'm sorry, Paul. I'm telling some stories about you, maybe a little

0:59

personal, so I apologize in advance.

1:02

Okay, so let's get started about Paul's life and problems at university. All right, so

1:09

the first verb I'm going to teach you is "enroll". "Enroll" or "sign up for". These mean the

1:18

same thing and it's where... When you decide to go to university, you enroll in a class

1:24

or you enroll in multiple classes. Paul enrolled in four classes. The class we're going to

1:31

be focused on, though, is Psychology 100. Paul enrolls in Psychology 100. Okay? I can

1:40

also say: "Paul signs up for Psychology 100." So this means he's decided to take Psychology

1:47

100, and he's told the university, so now he's in the class. He's enrolled.

1:54

So, Paul, at first, was a very good student. He studied very hard. Okay? If you study hard,

2:03

it means you "hit the books". "Hit the books" means "study hard". So, after Paul enrolled

2:10

in Psych 100, Paul hit the books. Every night he went, he opened his book, and he studied.

2:17

He hit the books.

2:20

Then, the professor, the prof "hands out the assignment". So this means the professor of

2:28

Psych 100, he gave Paul an assignment. "Here, Paul, I want you to write this essay." Okay?

2:34

So the prof hands out an assignment. Okay? So the prof gives you work.

2:42

So, after the prof hands out the assignment, Paul is very stressed. You know, he can't

2:50

think about the assignment, he's too stressed out about it, so he ends up partying, he,

2:56

you know, has fun. And then the assignment comes due, which means he has to give the

3:01

assignment in, imagine on a Thursday. The night before the assignment is due, Paul decides

3:09

to "pull an all-nighter". "Pull an all-nighter" means you stay up all night to finish something.

3:17

So, for Paul, he did not have his assignment ready. It was not completed, so in order to

3:24

get it finished, Paul stayed up all night working on it. So, at 3am, Paul was working

3:30

at his... On his assignment. At 6am, Paul was working on his assignment. Well, Paul

3:37

finished his assignment because he pulled an all-nighter.

3:42

So the next day, he goes to class, and guess what he does? He has his assignment, he's

3:47

very happy he's finished, he "hands in his assignment". So Paul gives his assignment
