Vocabulary Expansion

In this episode of Walk 'n' Talk Level Up, you learned some new vocabulary and expressions! You can continue studying here by checking out the dialogue and explanations, as well as repeating each sentence out loud!

Aaron: If Monica were here, would you be this disgusting?
Brad:  Sure not! I’m trying to impress her, you know?
Aaron:  Why? I remember you saying she’s not your type.
Brad:
Back off! She’s not my type, but it’s not like I’m gonna ask her to marry me. 
Aaron: So, what you want?
Brad: Bro, I’ve got no date for Friday night.
Better safe than sorry, right?

Vocabulary and Grammar

If …. were

In general, the past tense of the verb “be” with the subjects “I”, “he”, “she” and “it” is “was”. However, when we use the conjunction “if”, to describe an imaginary or hypothetical possibility, we use the form “were”. That structure is usually followed by the modal verb “would”, which as you probably know, can often be reduced to ’d. See some examples: 

If I were rich, I would travel the world. 
If he were the director, things would be better around here.
If she were taller, she’d be able to go on the ride. 
If Eric weren’t so negative, things would be better for him.
If I were you, I’d start working on that project now.
If Amanda were smarter, she would start her own company.

However, nowadays, the “was” form is socially acceptable in informal speech. 

Back off

A phrasal verb that means to draw back from a situation, typically a conflict or discussion. It’s an informal expression, sometimes used to warn someone off. The phrasal verb “back down” can be used as a synonym.

I won’t back off from this competition.
The dogs are not
backing off, we should intervene.
This isn’t any of your business,
back off.
Eventually, Steph
backed off and apologized.
I asked Julie to
back off so I could talk to them in private.
Evan wasn’t
backing off from the silly fight.

Better safe than sorry

An expression that means to make precautions in order to be prepared for a certain situation. The proverb is used to say that it’s wise to be careful and protect yourself against risk rather than be careless. The original expression, shortened with time, is “it’s better to be safe than sorry”. 

The weather is unpredictable, so I always carry an umbrella. Better safe than sorry.
She didn’t want to risk it. She said it was better to be safe than sorry.
The company isn’t doing well, so he’s sending out resumes. Better safe than sorry.
Don’t you think it’s better to be safe than sorry?
You don’t look good, you should rest.
Better safe than sorry, am I right?
They suggested filling up the gas before leaving. It’s
better to be safe than sorry

Listen to the episode as many times as you wish, and follow it up with this material. That way, you'll be able to memorize all the expressions you've learned! You’ll also be able to use them in conversations in the future. And remember, the more contact you have with the English language, the better. So make sure you don’t miss out on our next episode!
