RnR Grammar

Let’s concentrate of the RnR Grammar of the word ‘catch up’, as this is VERY COMMON in English!

Remember, in the context it is used in today’s show, it can be a NOUN (we had a catch up) or a verb (let’s meet tomorrow to catch up). It often needs a preposition, for example, I ask you:

“What did you do yesterday?”

And you respond…

“I had a catch up ____ Dan”.

What word goes here? Good question… the answer is WITH!

One other important thing, is that when it’s used as a NOUN, it is preceded by the word ‘have’… so we HAVE a catch up WITH someone ?

P.S. Don’t forget the past of this verb is ‘caught up’ 😉

When you have listened to the podcast and read the above, then you’re ready for the quiz below!
