Hello everyone.
I think I'm more an outdoor person, who prefers to spend more time in the nature and when I choose the way to relax, most of the time my prefers are to be in nature.I like to go hiking somewhere in the nature and to see all the plants and trees that you don't usually see in the city. I like to listen the birds' chirp while I enjoy the fresh air and be connected with nature and just get your relax.

I am like Stephen I like to make sport and try some new things.

Can I just 'get you' to fill this in, please?

What does it mean

Hello M. Ali,

As a verb 'get' has 17 different meanings in the Cambridge Dictionary. Here, it means 'persuade' -- see the second explanation under the 'cause' entry.

All the best,

Excuse me, I tried to find the meaning of Ashlie's saying "Go on you" in the dictionary and on the internet but I cannot find anything closely related. So can you explain it to me? How should I understand it?
Thank you.

Hello Abby Nguyen,

'Go on...' can have several meanings. Most often we say 'go on...' when we want to encourage someone to do something. For example, a sports fan might should 'Go on United!' to encourage his or her team. We can also say 'Go on you!'

However, here the meaning is different. Here Ashlie is saying 'Go on you, get going' to mean 'Off you go' or 'Don't just stand there, get busy!'. It's a humorous way to end the conversation.

 

Best wishes,

hi.why cant we say i am going to get changed?going to go isnt is too much?thank you

Hi gianfil,

I'm not sure why you ask 'why can't we say..' because we can say this. It's perfectly fine to say 'I am going to get changed'. You could also say 'I'm going to go and get changed' or 'I'm going to go get changed', all with very similar meanings. I think the first of these is the most elegant but all are correct.

 

Best wishes,
