Top Language: Let’s grab a bite!

Top Language

We are talking about the word ‘GRAB’ today.

I used it this morning when I was talking about having a coffee with a friend. I said: ‘ I am grabbing a coffee with Sonia this morning.’

Meaning:

  • To take hurriedly or quickly
  • To capture someone’s attention

As usual, I try to focus on the most important definitions. These two seem to be the most useful for learners.

In Context:

  • Let me grab my coat before we go.
  • I will grab a coffee on my way to work.
  • The speaker grabbed our attention.

Idiom:

‘Up for grabs’ is an expression that means available for someone to take or win.

  • That position is up for grabs.
  • A big chocolate Bunny is up for grabs!
