TO CHECK OUT (1): meaning and examples

Good morning. In yesterday's Daily Vitamin I told you to check out the business-etiquette website Executive Planet: I recommend you check it out! Today's Expression is: to check (something) out Meaning 1: to look at something to see if you like it (informal). Example 1 Before signing up for the health club, I want to check it out. Example 2 He checked out the hotel room before checking in. With this meaning, this phrasal verb is used in conversation and is quite informal. Meaning 2: to examine someone or something in order to be certain that it is correct, satisfactory or true. Example 3 I went to the doctor to get myself checked out. Example 4 She has been taking a lot of photographs, just to check out the new camera and make sure it is working okay. Tomorrow we will look at a couple of more uses of this phrasal verb. If you have any questions so far, please don't hesitate to contact me. Enjoy the rest of your day.
