Get Dressed vs Dress Up – ESL Lesson

Get Dressed vs Dress Up – ESL Lesson


Hi, this is Joel from WorldEnglishTeacher.com. In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the
difference between “to get dressed” and “to dress up.” So, “to get dressed” refers to simply
putting on your clothes. So, you wake up in the morning, you take a
shower and you get dressed. Now, this can refer to any type of clothing,
just a regular shirt, a dress for woman or a skirt, or it could be a business suit for
a man or a woman. It doesn’t really matter. It just means you’re putting on clothes. Now, “to dress up,” means that you are
putting on some special clothing. Now, it could be some expensive or fancy clothes,
maybe for a special occasion, a very nice suit, a very nice dress. You would dress up when there is something
important to do, or go to, and you want to look very nice. Or, it could also refer to you dressing up
for a special party, maybe a Halloween party. So you might dress up as a mermaid, or dress
up as a pirate, or as a policeman, something like that for a Halloween party or some other
kind of theme party. So, you can “dress up” to simply look
very nice for a special occasion, or you can “dress up” for a Halloween party or something
like that. And “to get dressed” simply means to put
your clothes on. All right, so I hope that you liked this video. If you need to get corrections for your English
