Phrasal verbs #2 (permalink) Mon May 15, 2006 22:49 pm   Phrasal verbs
 

The phrasal verb that makes the most sense in the context of this sentence is to get on with, which means to continue doing something, especially work.

put up with someone/something means to accept someone/something, even if they are unpleasant/noisy, etc: people living near the airport have to put up with aircraft noise.

To run out is to go short: we are running out of petrol.

To come up with is to suggest or think of an idea or plan: he has come up with an original idea.

Congratulations Conchita! Your explanation about the theme was great, very clear. I am so bad to understand phrasal verbs. Sometimes I think to give up my English learning because I consider phrasal verb verb very, very dificult. My best regards.
