    to take to it

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    You went to school, but you didn’t take to it much because you were a lot smarter than everybody else.

    take to = become fond of, like,

    “to take to it” = something is to become interested in it, or to start to like it.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: to take it

    take to = become fond of, like,

    “to take * it” = something is to become interested in it, or to start to like it.

    I take it (= suppose, assume), that you meant to write 'to' where I have put the asterisk.
