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.
