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.
