    Re: Idioms with SIGHT

    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi dear neighbor,

    manage to see = catch sight of
    could no longer see = lose sight of something
    recognize his face = know someone slightly
    disappeared from = pass out of sight

    Probably you take an interest in respect to take a first-hand look at some common collocations of “sight”

    Here are a few of them:

    To catch sight of, to keep sight of
    I faint at the sight of blood.
    I fall in love at first sight.
    I know him by sight.
    The ship was no longer in sight.
    I shoot looters on sight.
    It comes into sight.
    I have to adjust my sights.
    He lined up his sights.
    We have him in one’s sights.
    She set her sights on a career in politics.
    The tourists took in the sights.
    He sets his sights high.

    Regards,

    V.

    Could no longer see =
    WE were following her but she disappeared in the crowd and we lost sight of her. In English you could also just say "we lost her" as well.

    Recognize his face =
    I know him by sight, but I've never spoken to him.

    Disappeared from =
    she watched the plane take off and fry away until it went out of sight.

    Suggestions in blue.
