    Default Re: 1) carry on ... further 2) carry ... further

    First, carry on means to continue doing what you are doing, and it works like this,

    Ex: Carry on doing something.
    Ex: Carry on with something.

    1a) I would like to carry on with the program by doing....
    1b) I would like to carry on, further, with the program by doing...

    Second, carry...further means to start something new.

    All the best.
