Today we’ll be looking at some phrasal verbs that stem from the word “come”. Although this lesson doesn’t include all the meanings, I have focused on the more difficult ones used in daily conversation.
To get the best out of this lesson, follow the steps below.
I came up with the idea to go shopping on the weekend for some Christmas presents. My best friend, Adam, asked if he could come along too. It took him some persuading but I eventually came around, so we went together.
First of all, we went to the phone shop as a new phone had just come out that I wanted to buy. The sales assistant offered me a discount if I buy today and he certainly came through on his promise! It was almost half price.
By this point, our shopping was coming along nicely. Just a few more things to get.
I grabbed some lemon flavoured teabags just in case I come down with a cold this winter. Adam came out with a great idea! He suggested we have a look on the other side of town where clothes are often cheaper. On our way there, we came across a new shop that we stopped to look at.
Overall, I think it was a very productive day. I can’t remember how it came about that Adam and I met, but I’m glad we did! He’s welcome to come by and visit me anytime!
