  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 123. The verb phrase today is to speed

  • by. Okay. Let's take a look at the note. if time speeds by, it passes very quickly.

  • Yeah. We use it in a very similar way to fly by. Remember we always say time flies

  • by or we say time flies by when you're having fun. You know, when you enjoy

  • things, sometimes time seems to just go much quicker. So you can say time speeds

  • by and this in a very similar sort of a way. Or we have the second meaning here.,

  • to move passed by someone or something very quickly. So you can literally speed

  • by someone as well. Okay. Let's look at the first example here. The show was so

  • enjoyable. I couldn't believe how quickly time sped by. So this is the same way you

  • might use it with time flies by. But remember, a lot of times when I'm in

  • class I'm telling students you know, time flies by when you're having fun, the

  • opposite is usually we say time drags on. You know, when something is boring or

  • something is unpleasant, it feels like it's lasting forever. So we might say time

  • drags on, as an opposite but we do say time speeds by or time sped by. Let's

  • look at number two. As you get older time seems to speed by quicker and quicker.

  • Yeah so you often hear older people say this. That time just seems to seem so it

  • feels like it's going faster and faster. And then number three. As he sped by the

  • speed trap. Yeah you know, police often do this they'll they'll hide behind

  • something or you know where you can't see them from a distance. And that's

  • usually referred to as a speed trap. You know, they specifically hide but then

  • they can read how fast you're going just as you go by quickly. So as he sped

  • by the speed trap, the policeman clocked him. So probably it's a radar gun and

  • that's what the radar gun said clocked him at doing 90 miles per hour. So the

  • radar gun clocked him. So the radar gun came up with that reading. That he was

  • driving 90 miles per hour as he sped by. So as he

  • flew by very quickly. Okay, good. I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.

  • Thank you for your time. Bye-bye,
