Today we’ll learn about the word work.

Listen to a story about Jenny and her dream

Every day Jenny worked out in a gym to keep fit

She mostly worked at stretching and lifting weights

Jenny wanted to look perfect to draw one of her coworker’s attention

One day that coworker came to her gym when she already worked up a fair sweat

She though she looked terrible but he came up to her and said with a smile: Hi there, looks like you trying to work off something! Can I join you?

Ok, now let me explain what the word work means in these sentences

The first phrase: “Jenny worked out in a gym” means “Jenny exercised in a gym”

“She worked at stretching” means “She tried hard to improve her stretch”

The next phrase “she already worked up a fair sweat” means “she produced sweat by her activity”

And finally “you are trying to work off something” means “you are trying to get rid of something (like anger or depression)”

Now try to answer my questions looking at the pictures:

What did Jenny do to keep fit?

Why did she want to look perfect?

What did her coworker say when he saw her in the gym?

How did she look when her coworker came to the gym?

The word work will work in all similar situations

She’s been working at her project for weeks

He wants to feel young and strong so he works out every day

Driving helps him to work off anxiety caused by his dangerous job

Look for similar situations and practice the word work!
