Hi, this is One Word English. You are going to learn only one word and a several ways of using it in spoken English

Let’s have a look at the word Take. We normally use take for “getting something into our hands” but this word has many other meanings. In this lesson we’ll explore some them

Imagine, it’s weekend.

On Sunday mornings she loves taking her time with a cup of coffee

And then she usually takes a foamy bath

It takes her hours to fully enjoy her bath surrounded with candles

Finally she takes a glass of fresh juice and gets out to the terrace with a beautiful sea view

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

The first phrase “On Sunday mornings she loves taking her time” means “She loves Sunday mornings to be relaxing, no rush”

“She takes a bath” means “She has a bath”

The next phrase “It takes her hours to fully enjoy her bath” means “She spends a long time to fully enjoy her bath”

And finally “She takes a glass of fresh juice” means “She gets a glass of juice into her hands”

Let’s repeat these sentences together.

On Sunday mornings she loves taking her time with a cup of coffee

And then she usually takes a foamy bath

It takes her hours to fully enjoy her bath surrounded with candles

Finally she takes a glass of fresh juice and gets out to the terrace with a beautiful sea view

Now you are ready to answer my questions:

What does she do after having a cup of coffee?

How does she like spending her Sunday mornings?

What does she do before going to the terrace?

How long does it take her to have a bath?

Look at the following situations and check out how we can use the word take

It takes cheetah only 30 min to cover distance up to 60 km

The man is taking his time smelling flowers

The lady is taking a shower

Those were only a few uses of the word take. Look around and try to apply them in your real life. We’ll explore some other meanings of the word take in our next programs.
