  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 167. The verb phrase today is to leap at.

  • Okay. And we we have two meanings today to cover for to leap at. Let's

  • look at the note here. If a person or animal leaps at someone or something

  • they spring or jump at someone or something. So it's the literal one Where

  • they're just kind of diving and jumping. So animals definitely will do it. But

  • even a person could do it. You know, trying to attack someone. Or number two

  • here. The second meaning. To accept or grab a good opportunity, especially with

  • enthusiasm. You know you don't want to let it go by. Don't waste any time. Grab

  • it right away. So you leap at it. All right. So let's look at the first example.

  • This one covers like you know, the person or animal physically leaping. I once watched a

  • video of a bird that was actually repeatedly pestering a cat it was kind

  • of strange video. In the first part you're saying what is this bird keep

  • bothering this cat ? It just kept coming down and picking at it. It was having fun with

  • it. But he paid a price. The cat eventually leaped at the bird and caught

  • it with his paws. It was kind of an amazing video to see on YouTube. But it

  • surprised you. You said oh! Wow ! look what happened. Anyway let's go on. Let's look at

  • number two here. Jane leapt at the chance to accept this task. So this is the

  • second one. Like you leap at it. At an opportunity or a chance. So she could

  • try to show off her skills to impress the boss. So she very enthusiastically or

  • in an a very excited way accepted this. Okay. Number three. Well , this goes

  • back again to... you know. the physically leaping at. A rat will usually try to

  • flee danger, but if trapped in a corner, it may

  • try to leap at its attacker. Yeah. So that's what we say. Sometimes a trap ...a

  • trapped rat will try to attack sometimes. If they can't ... if they see a small out

  • that they could try to escape, they'll probably take that. But only as a last

  • resort , if they feel they have no other choice sometimes they say that a rat may

  • try to attack its its attacker or the one that he considers causing danger to

  • him. All right. And number four here. When offered that position John had left at

  • the offer and quickly accepted it. So maybe it was so good. Oh yeah. Yeah I'll

  • take that no doubt about it. Yeah I want that one. So you didn't even have to

  • think about it. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was

  • clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
