1. forgive

Today we are going to learn “forgive”. It means to stop being angry with someone and stop blaming them, although they have done something wrong.
eg:
(1) He didn’t look the sort of man to forgive and forget (= forgive someone and no longer think about it ) .
(2) He never forgave her for walking out on him.

2. step up

Another word is “step up”. If you step up something, you increase it
eg:
(1) Japan and Russia agreed to step up work towards resolving their longstanding territorial disputes.
(2) He had told a friend, “You come to realize that life is short, and you have to step up.”
