    Default Do you think that speaking English will help you

    Which phrasal verb can fit here? ( I think both of them would be correct according to Oxford dictionary. However, English File course book went for only "go far".)

    Do you think that speaking English will help you go..... professionally?

    A. far
    B. forward

    I agree with you. They are both possible but 'far' is better.

    I agree that both are possible. I think I'd be more likely to use 'forward'.

    I agree that both work. It depends on how much help English could be to your career as to which is better IMO.
