Hi, this is One Word English, which means you are going to learn only one word but also some tips for using it to make English better.

Today we’ll have fun the word Pick. You know that this word stands for “lifting something”, a pen which you dropped down or a bag. But there are many other meaning you want to know!

Here is a little story.

Jeremy is going to pick up his friend Tom at home to go out together

They are trying to pick out a place to go: Tom wants to go to a bar but Jeremy prefers disco

At the end they went to a disco-bar and picked up two pretty girls there!

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

The first phrase “Jeremy is going to pick up his friend Tom” means “Jeremy is going to collect his friend who is waiting for him”

“They are trying to pick out a place to go” means “They are trying to choose where to go”

And the last sentence “ They picked up two pretty girls” means “They met and made friends with girls that they found sexually attractive”

Now repeat these sentences after me

Jeremy is going to pick up his friend Tom at home to go out together

They are trying to pick out a place to go: Tom wants to go to a bar but Jeremy prefers disco

At the end they went to a disco-bar and picked up two pretty girls there!

Now look at the pictures again and answer my questions:

What is Jeremy going to do?

Where did they pick up those girls?

What couldn’t the two friends do when they met?

How can you use this word in real life? Let’s think of some situations

The guy is picking up that girl

She is trying to pick out whether to clean the house or have a drink!

The lady has just picked up her kids from school by bike

Any time you see the similar situations around try to use this word. If you like somebody at a party you can say something like: “Hi, I’m not trying to pick you up, I just wonder if you like it here!”
