Hi again, welcome to HELP and I'm Gillan.
Today's lesson is about phrasal verbs once more and we're going to learn to use phrasal verbs using the verb "COME". So we're going to look at come about, come across, come apart, come upon, come clean, come down, come in, come into, come by, come over, come through, and come up.
First one on the list is "come about". We use this phrasal verb when something happens or occurs. For example, 'Getting a high score is expected to come about when you review your lessons before taking a test.'
"Come across", means the way other people perceive something or someone. Mostly, it is used to express something that has come up by chance and wasn't planned. For instance; 'Check-out the dictionary when you come across difficult words.'
Next we got, "Come apart". It's a phrasal verb we can use when something breaks or separates piece by piece. 'The house where my mother grew-up is so old that its door and windows are starting to come-apart.'
We use "come upon" when we discover or meet someone by accident.
For example, 'I was surprised to come upon a beautiful park while jogging around my new neighborhood.
"Come clean". If you come clean about something that you have been keeping secret, you admit it or tell people about it. 'The teacher did not get angry after she received an anonymous tip but she encouraged her students in class to come clean if they cheated.'
Now, it's time to use the verb "come" with prepositions, to make more phrasal verbs.
"Come down". Literally, it means to move from a higher to a lower position or it can also mean to decrease. 'I saved a lot of money after I managed my bills and my unnecessary expenses have come down.’
"Come in" means that someone or something enters a place, building, or room. 'The new security guard told me I can't come in the office unless I wear my company ID.'
"Come into" is to acquire something, especially as an inheritance.
'The man has come into a fortune when he sold the land he inherited from his father.'
"Come by" means to pay a visit or it can also mean to gain possession just like come into. 'I come by the gym once a week to work out.'
"Come over" is to make a visit. 'I have to clean my house because my relatives will come over this weekend.'
"Come through" means to do what is required or anticipated. 'I told my students to prepare for the graded recitation and they all come through today with a passing grade.
"Come Up". When something appears or happens, either expected or unexpected. 'The news about the changes in the education system had come up after the imposition of a lock-down in the entire country.’
There you have it! Come about, come across, come apart, come upon, come clean, come down, come in, come into, come by, come over, come through, and come up.
