  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 385. The title of today's lesson is "Don't use

  • go ahead when you should be using get ahead. " All right. Now I recently did a

  • verb phrases (videos) on both go ahead and get ahead and they have a lot of different

  • meanings but they do have a few meanings where they are kind of similar and this is why

  • maybe students could get confused between these two. So today we're only

  • going to concentrate on where students would make a mistake. It would be a

  • common mistake for an ESL student. So let's , let's look at the note here. In

  • regard to one's job or career use "get ahead" not "go ahead. " So that's where

  • the most common mistake may happen. All right. So again, let's look at the first one

  • with the X. Of course that's wrong. You cannot go ahead in the company without

  • being fluent in in English. Yes. So of course, the correct way would be with the

  • check. You cannot get ahead in the company without being fluent in English.

  • So get ahead would be here. So again this is in your career or this is in your job.

  • So this is where the students might make the mistake. Number two here. It is

  • difficult to go ahead in that political party if you do not toe the line.

  • I remember in politics , if you belong to a political party and toe the line. That

  • means you always vote with the party. So if there's a particular issue that you know

  • sometimes you do have it where you might have one politician in a political party

  • he doesn't want to vote the same way as the party on this particular issue. Maybe

  • it's something to do with his district or area or maybe it's just his personal

  • beliefs. He don't ....he doesn't want to do that. So they pressure him to toe

  • the line. But if you refuse to do it sometimes they could hurt your career in

  • the party , especially if you do it more than once.

  • Okay. So again of course, with the correct way would be with check. It is difficult

  • to get ahead in that political party if you do not toe the line. That's ... you know,

  • you vote with them. You know, most of the time.

  • All right. Number three here. Without a big break in Hollywood, it is difficult to go

  • ahead in your career. No again , with the check . We should be using "get ahead. "

  • So without a big break in Hollywood, it is difficult to get ahead in your career. It is

  • difficult to advance in your career. So here get ahead means advance, move

  • forward , you know, in your job or your career. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was

  • clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
