Hi, you are watching One Word English. Can one simple word make your English better? Of course, if know how to use it!

Today we’ll learn about the word stick. The basic meaning of this word is to put a pointed object into or through something.

For example: to stick a fork in a sausage.

But there are some other meanings of this word. Listen to a story.

Tony was helping his dad when his friend’s head stuck out of the window

His friend shouted: Hey Tony, do you want to come and stick around for lunch?

I’d love to, said Tony, but I’m stuck with fixing my dad’s car

There is an opossum stuck in the engine!

Ok, let’s see what the word stick means in these sentences

The first phrase “his friend’s head stuck out of the window” means “his friend’s head came out beyond the window and became visible”

“do you want to come and stick around for lunch” means “do you want to come and stay at my place for lunch”

The next phrase “I’m stuck with fixing my dad’s car” means “I have to stay and continue fixing my dad’s car”

And finally “There is an opossum stuck in the engine” means “there is an opossum that is caught and can’t get out of the engine

Now look at the pictures again and answer my questions:

What did Tony see when he was helping his dad with fixing the car? He saw his friend’s head stuck out of the window

What did his friend suggest him to do? He invited Tony to stick around for lunch

Why couldn’t Tony go to his friend’s place? Because he was stuck fixing his dad’s car

What happened to the car engine? There was an opossum stuck in the engine
