#136 Phrasal Verbs with GET in English (rep) - ESL

Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana founder of My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

In this episode:

  • •I'll be discussing some more about some of the most common phrasal verbs.
  • •After that, you'll be able to practice your grammar skills with an interesting Point of View lesson.

Ok, let's continue with the phrasal verbs. A phrasal verb is just a verb and a particle. For example, "get in." If you haven't checked out the first episode about phrasal verbs, please do it.

Remember, you only need to learn the most frequently used phrasal verbs. Also, instead of learning all the different meanings of each phrasal verb, simply learn one or two common meanings.

Ok, let's get started! Today, we'll play a bit with "get."

Get along / get on

Do you have friends? Then, you'll probably use this phrasal verb. It means to like each other. For example:

I'm surprised how well I get along with my mother-in-law.

The older and younger members get along well.

I get along very well with foreign people.

You can also use "get on" instead of "get along." It's exactly the same meaning. For example:

I'm surprised how well I get on with my mother-in-law.

The older and younger members get on well.

I get on very well with foreign people.

Go back / Come back / Get back

Sometimes these phrasal verbs are confusing for the English students. First, let's see the difference between 'go' and 'come.' An example:

Please, Jim, come here. I need to talk to you.

Please, Jim, go to the supermarket to buy some food.

As you can see, when Jim approaches you, he "comes." When Jim doesn't approach you and goes somewhere else, he "goes."

Now let's add the word 'back':

Jim, come back from the supermarket. I've just ordered a pizza.

In this first example, Jim is at the supermarket and returns to where he was before. Another example:

Tomorrow, Jim will have to go back to the supermarket to buy more food.

In the second example, Jim goes to the supermarket again. He went the day before.

As you can see, adding the word 'back' emphasizes the idea that you go again to a place or you come again from a place.

So, how about "get back"? It has virtually the same meaning. Here’s not so important if you go or if you come. It sounds a bit more informal.

We didn't get back from the movies until midnight.

Call me when you get back.

I visited my uncle in France two years ago, and I can't wait to get back!
