ascend

Context
Help

I would do my homework, but then I would have to ascend or mount the stairs to get to my room. I’m so tired because I had to quickly ascend or climb the steep hill from my school to my house. I guess I’d better get up to my room to do my homework, but I wish that I could ascend or go up these stairs by flying. I know it is only one flight of stairs, but it feels like ascending or hiking up a mountain right now!

Quiz: What are you doing when you are ascending?

  • You are working very hard.
  • You are moving in an upward direction.
  • You are running fast, resting, then running again.

Send Me Up, Please! I would much rather have someone send me up that mountain in a car instead of having to ascend it by hiking!
