    Default carry out

    I am carrying out my learning English process.
    I carried out reading books which you told me to do.

    Are these sentences correct?

    Please help me.

    [I saw in the dictionary, carry out = to do something or complete something that you have said to do; or someone told to do]

    I think it is best used in phrases such as carried out a test, carried out an experiment, and so forth.

    carry out

    Wink Re: carry out

    Yes, I agree with the above reply. People usually use the phrase like carry out a test, a plan, an experiment, etc.
    But "carrying out my learning English process" sounds somewhat not idiomatic English.
