  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 119. The verb phrase today is

  • to live off. So live off somebody or live off something. All right. And we got three

  • different definitions that we're going to cover today and give examples for you.

  • For each of them. Let's look at number one here. If someone

  • lives off something, he or she regularly gets a supply of money for something or

  • already has a large supply of money that could be used to live on and maybe you

  • were lucky. Maybe you inherited a lot of money or you won a lottery or something.

  • Or number two here. To get money from someone else , especially when you don't

  • work for your own income. So this one you're living off of someone for sure

  • and you depend on someone else. Okay. And the third meaning here means to mostly

  • or only eat a particular type of food. So you're living off this type of food. So

  • maybe just living off of potatoes or I don't know living off of our onions or

  • whatever it is that you're living off of means that's mostly what you eat. All

  • right. So let's look the first example here. After he retired, he was able to

  • live off his pension. All right. This would be one where you know, you're regularly

  • getting the supply of money. It's being like mailed to you. So you'll be living

  • off a pension. You could be living off your Social Security. So every month or so

  • your email to check and you got so much money and you could live on that money

  • So you could live off of that. Number two. Many, many senior citizens are having

  • difficulty living off of their social security check these days. So you

  • could put it that way.Then again it's another one that comes regularly. Or you

  • can have difficulty living off something too. It could be hard to do it. Number

  • three here. That homeless person is only able to live off the charity of others.

  • All right. Now this is more like the second one. You're getting money from someone

  • else, especially when you're not working yourself. So you're depending on that.

  • All right. And number four it's also like from the second meaning. Even though , she

  • graduated from university three years ago, Mary is still living off her parents.

  • oH yeah. A lot of young people these days they graduate from university they have

  • trouble finding jobs and a lot of times. That's still living off their parents

  • for years. After they graduated. Okay and number five. The last one here. She is so

  • hard up for money. So desperate for money. Now. Jane has been living off instant

  • noodles for several months. Yeah so you could just be living off one particular

  • type of food. You know. So if she doesn't have a lot of money so maybe that's all

  • she can afford. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye
