I’m using this reusable bag

If something is reusable, it means it can be used over again.

  • Are those paper plates reusable?

What I don’t like about it…

This is a great phrase to know and can be used with HATE, LIKE, LOVE etc.

  • What I hate about the gym is…
  • What I love about soccer is…

It’s going to leak

If something leaks, it means that water escapes. The adjective is leaky.

  • That’s a leaky water bottle

I go to the gym without showering

We use the gerund after words like after 😀, before, without etc.

  • I brush my teeth after eating lunch
  • He’s tired after working out

I’ve been reusing it

To reuse something means to use it again. It’s the verb form of reusable (like before).

  • I hate having to reuse smelly towels
  • Let’s try and reuse this if we can

I’m going to see how long I can keep this going

To keep something going means to continue doing something.

– he’s been running for 6 hours. I don’t know how long he can keep it going.

My dad used to wake me up at 5:30

drink up

Not as common as to drink but this phrasal verb means to complete a drink.

It’s in this awkward stage

Awkward means, well, it’s hard to explain. In this case, it means that my hair isn’t looking too good right now.

I won’t show you the combination

The combination is the code that unlocks the lock.

I’ve kept it since

This means that it has remained in my possession.

To Keep (two meanings)

I gave two different ways to use to keep in this lesson. Here is a picture of this:
