一分钟英语:Put Down Roots

English in a Minute – Put Down Roots:安顿下来

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Roots are the underground parts of a plant that take in soil nutrients.

So, are Anna and Jonathan doing some gardening?

Jonathan, guess what? What?

I bought a house! scary.

Are you serious? You are finally putting down roots?

Roots! You make it sound so permanent. Thanks, Jonathan.

To "put down roots" means to make a place your home with no plans of moving away.

We say this a lot when someone buys a new home.

But putting down roots can also mean connecting with people and places in a community.

And that's English in a Minute.
