Posted by on .

Thank you very much. By the way, what do you think of our Comenius project? Do you think we did a good job?
I still have a few setences on phrasal verbs I'd like you to check. (especially the reprhase of 1)

1) I can't understand the various meanings of "bring on". For example:
They brought on the film director at the end of the screening.
2) Can you give me an example of "bring on/upon somebody phrasal verb
meaning making something unpleasant happen to someone)
3) Stress can bring on an asthma attack.
Flowers can bring on a fit of asthma (to me?)
He is a trainer and brings on young athlets
4) She tried to get on her own way by turning on the charm (How would you rephrase it?)
5) She had never let on (revealed? I need a synonym) that she wanted to become a model.
6) He is very interested in music and always puts on (organizes?? I need a synonym) an end-of-term concert.
7) You have always been willing to take on extra work.You have always agreed to do extra work.
8) Just because you have the same taste in music as someone else, doesn't necessarily mean that you get on (have friendly relationship with each other ???)

    I find your Comenius project fascinating. I hope you will keep posting updates about how everything's going as it all progresses. =)

    1) I can't understand the various meanings of "bring on". For example:
    They brought on the film director at the end of the screening.
    It sounds as if someone made sure the director of the film went onstage after the movie was shown, probably to praise him.

    2) Can you give me an example of "bring on/upon somebody phrasal verb
    meaning making something unpleasant happen to someone)
    His illegal actions brought terrible humiliation down on his family.

    3) Stress can bring on an asthma attack.
    Flowers can bring on a fit of asthma (to me?)
    He is a trainer and brings young athletes onto the field.

    4) She tried to get on her own way by turning on the charm (How would you rephrase it?)
    She tried to them to do what she wanted by acting very charming.

    5) She had never revealed that she wanted to become a model.
    yes

    6) He is very interested in music and always organizes an end-of-term concert.
    yes

    7) You have always been willing to take on extra work. You have always agreed to do extra work. yes

    8) Just because you have the same taste in music as someone else, doesn't necessarily mean that you get along well in all ways.

    Although, I like the extensive list that's given in the ESLCafe website, I really like the way phrasal verbs are organized here:
    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/phrasals.htm

    separable
    inseparable
    three-word
    intransitive

    Both are really good references, but it depends on how you want to find information -- by use or alphabetically.
