  • across. Okay. We actually have six meanings and uses of come across today.

  • And again just like usual, you may know one or two of these but you'll be

  • surprised you probably don't know all six. So let's take a look at the note

  • here. Here's the first one to find or see someone by chance. Right this one of the

  • more common ones. You may know this one. But here's a couple of examples. I came

  • across a good sale and I just had to buy it. So this ... it was unexpected. You weren't

  • expecting to find this good sale and you found it by chance. Okay. Or the second

  • one here. I hadn't seen Bill for two years and just by chance I came across

  • him at the mall. So again, so in both cases you find ... you find someone or

  • something by chance. Okay. Number two. To literally cross something. You know, like

  • cross a bridge. Cross a road. All right. So this is a simple one. Come across the

  • street and meet me in front of the bank. So maybe you're on the phone with

  • come towards you. Come across the street, Okay number three here. To meet ones

  • demands or expectations. All right now. This one you may not know. Don't expect
