Last week I went to visit my friend Fred. Fred is a great guy but at times he can really go on about things. We were speaking about some of our friends and he came out with this incredible story about Jane. It seems she had butted in while he was harping on his favorite complaint: Service in restaurants. Apparently, he had been running on for quite a while putting down almost every restaurant he had been to by rattling off a list of his visits to different restaurants in town. I guess Jane felt that he was talking at her and was fed up with it. She went off about what a rude person he was which shut him up pretty quickly! I thought about blurting out that maybe she was right, but decided to clam up in order to not upset him.

Como pode ser visto nessa aula, dominar o idioma é algo que leva tempo, pois sempre existe algo para aprender. Talvez se fôssemos tentar ler esse texto acima sem conhecimento desses phrasal verbs, teríamos grande dificuldade de get the meaning (= pegar o significado) das frases.
