Daily Easy English Expression 0046 --to turn in (2 meanings)-- --3 Minute Lesson

Hay everyone; this is Muhammad Nabeel in Pakistan.  Today I will focus on the phrasal verb ‘to turn in’. Now ‘to turn in’ can have several meanings I am going to focus on two. No.1:  ‘to turn in something’.
It means to give something to somebody who asked for it and the easy example is homework. Turn in your homework to the professor, turn in a proposal to a boss, so when you give something to a teacher or to a boss. Basically those are two main situations. You turn something in, they asked for something, you did it and then you turn it in. okay, we can use it other situation too. For example, the police have asked the public to turn in their weapons, to turn in drugs, to give something to someone. That’s the idea.
Another definition ‘to turn in’ means to go to the bed. What time did you turn in last night? What time did you go to the bed last night? So those are two very common definitions of phrasal verb to turn in. listen to the dialogue:
Did you turn in the assignment?
Yes! Now I’m free
So, what are you gonna do?
I’m gonna turn in early tonight. I’m tired~~
That would be nice to turn in early. What time do you usually turn in. leave a message down below And I will see you next week. Bye
