Hello everybody.

It’s phrasal verb time again.

…and throughout February all phrasal verbs use the verb “GET”. And today’s phrasal verb is TO GET ALONG.

TO GET ALONG WITH someone.

…and this means that you have, kind of, a good relationship with someone. You like someone and that you’re friendly with each other.

Okay?

It’s synonym of TO GET ON WITH someone – TO GET ALONG WITH someone.

Okay?

For example,

– “I’m not sure, you’re gonna GET ALONG WITH my brother-in-law. He’s a bit of a bore to be honest. He just talks about work all the time. So, you know, I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t really GET ALONG WITH him.”

Okay?

Another one would be

– “I’m fed up with all the arguing, all the problems. Can’t we all just GET ALONG? Really? Come on! Let’s GET ALONG WITH each other, shall we?”

Good!

That’s it for this one, short one.

I’ll speak to you again tomorrow.

I hope you’ve had a fantastic weekend.

Bye for now.
