Here is one example.
He aquí un ejemplo.

one = uno/un/una, cuando ésta expresa cantidad

Don't confuse the word one with the indefinite article, a (an when the following word begins with a vowel), as in:
Here is an example.
No confundas la palabra uno con el artículo indefinido), a (an cuando la palabra siguiente empieza con vocal). En español, no hay diferencia ninguna:
He aquí un ejemplo.

The word up is used many ways, with varied meanings.
It can mean hacia arriba.
La palabra up se usa de varias maneras con sentidos distintos.
Puede significar hacia arriba.

Many times, it is used as a verb preposition.
Muchas veces se usa como preposición verbal.
To look up = buscar (en un diccionario, p. e.)
To walk up, climb up, go up = subir

At times, it is used as an adverb.
A veces se usa como adverbio.
To look up = alzar la vista, mirar hacia arriba

It is used in idioms (modismos).
What's up? = ¿Qué pasa?

But Rusty's explanation is better.


It would be a lot easier to give you more information about those words if you were to give us some sample sentences or if you told us exactly what you don't understand about how to use those words. Para nosotros sería mucho más fácil si nos dieras más información acerca de estas dos palabras. Danos unas frases que usan esas dos palabras y que no entienedes, o explícanos qué es exactamente lo que no entiendes acerca del uso de up y one.

Aprendo palabras en español mejor cuando alguien me las dice verbalmente.

Please, David, (tell me)/(explain to me) how I can to use these words in some sentences or phrases.
to pick up = aprender, en este caso (la palabra up es parte del verbo);
to pick up también significa recoger, tomar, agarrar, y otros verbos en ciertas situaciones.

off and on = de vez en cuando (un modismo)
