In other words, if you have a hard time understanding what each word means by itself, knowing some common expressions or phrasal verbs where some of these words you might not understand are used, can only help you.
Let’s review a few of the more common phrasal verbs which begin with the letter "A" in English.
When someone must "answer for" something, this means that they must either explain it, or be held accountable and face the consequences.
Examples: "He has a lot to answer for. He was gone from work all last week and didn’t tell anyone at the company he works for" or "That criminal has a lot to answer for. He robbed over thirty houses and stole over one million dollars worth of people’s property."
When you ask someone out, or "ask out" someone, this means you are going to make them a proposition of some kind to either go do something, or go to some place.
Examples: "John is going to ask Petra out for a date tomorrow night, he is so nervous" or "He will never ask her out because he is too shy."
Ask Around (Ask Round)
When a person "asks around" this means that they make a point to ask people their opinions, or they seek out specific individuals for their comments.
Examples: "The police started asking around the neighborhood to see if anyone saw the burglars last night" or "The company started asking around to see if there were any other employees who might want the new job."
