    Default Multi-part verbs (little check)

    I decided to take up tennis about six years ago. Now I'm already into it because I can play it with my brother every few days. Every time I turn up for tennis match I give best from me. I have never thinked to back out because there wasn't reason for it. My brother persuade me every time to go through it because I have neved had time for it. For tennis match you don't have to put on any special clothes, just short pants, t-shirt and sportish sneakers. Most important is that you must set up yourself, in pshyclogical way, that helps a lot. At the end, it's difficult to get across the enjoyment of winning shot.


    Bolded multi-part verbs I must use. Thank you.

    Dear phissen:

    Pretty good job! Comments in blue. Please note that I am only commenting on the use of the phrasal verbs.

Do you mean you must get yourself in the right mood for tennis? yourself, in pshyclogical way, that helps a lot. At the end, it's difficult to get across By 'get across' do you mean communicate? the enjoyment of winning shot.
