VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Example: "He kicked the ball really fast, and scored the winning goal."
The word kick also has another definition: owing to its sports origins, it can also mean having beaten something, as in defeated or having conquered it. Examples:
"John kicked his smoking habit, he doesn’t smoke anymore" or "Pavel kicked his weight problem, he isn’t fat anymore and he now exercises regularly."
The phrase "to kick" in this case comes from the longer expression "to kick the habit," as in to beat or defeat something.
Just Kicking or Just Kickin’ It
When someone is "just kicking it," this means that they are relaxing and are not doing very much. Examples:
"John and Tomas were just kicking it, the weather was really hot and they were enjoying the shade," or "Mary and Steve were just kicking it down by the lake, relaxing by themselves and being romantic."
Just for Kicks
When someone does something "just for kicks," this is another way of saying that they are doing it just because they can, or just for fun or perhaps to amuse themselves. When someone "gets a kick out of it," this means that they enjoyed it.
