We are in the middle of the week and every time closer to the Christmas holidays. Perhaps during your holidays you will decide to go and visit a city around England or, if you are outside the UK, travelling to an English speaking country for some well-deserved holidays.

 We love talking about the English language and, our post goes today to a very interesting part of the language and a topic that is not a favourite sometimes among students: phrasal verbs.
The reason for it is that phrasal verbs are seen as something difficult to remember and confusing as the combinations can be numerous!

 Well, it is impossible to mention all phrasal verbs in just this post so; we are starting by introducing today a few handy phrasal verbs with the verb GET. It is a very common verb in English that, combined with different prepositions, can be used in many different contexts. Let’s get to it!

Get out of (doing something)

a hand with no

Did someone ever ask you something and you escaped from doing it? Yes, we all know this feeling and we are so happy there is a verb to express our relief. If you want avoid doing something, this is your phrasal verb
‘I got out of staying until 9 pm to close the shop today’

Get on with (someone)

people enjoying together


During our life, we meet people whom we have good or bad relationships. By using this phrasal verb, you will be able to say if you enjoy or not these people’s company.
‘I get on very well with my boyfriend’s mother. She is always kind to me’

Get away with (something)

Do you remember when your younger siblings were doing something wrong and your parents blamed you? This verb is dedicated to them! It is also a phrasal verb we use when talking about burglaries or robberies.

‘The robbers got away with robbing the jewellery shop. The police could never find them’

Get over (something)


If you are a strong person and have had some difficulties in your life, you have probably overcome many situations. This is the perfect verb for you then!
‘Michael has still not got over losing his job. He spends most of the time at home’
