    Question about phrases

    Hi Teachers,
    Could all the underlined words be considered short phrases?

    1. How can you help yourself learn a new language, such as English?
    2. You do not have to understand everything all at once.
    3. You will get used to writing in English.
    4. When you keep a record of something, you are preserving information so that
    you can refer to it later.
    5. Somewhere else means another place.


    Thanks in advance
