    Take on?

    Hello!

    What does it mean 'take on' as in 'What is the popular take on drinking and driving in your country?

    Cheers,
    Tito

    The "popular take on" something is the general opinion or understanding.

    Re: Take on?

    You need to see it as a whole phrase. The "take on something" - it's not "take on + something" it's "the take + on + something".

    Me: Now that you have seen all the evidence, what's your take on extraterrestrial life?
    Friend: Well, I think it's possible but until aliens start visiting Earth, I won't be completely convinced.

    My friend's "take" is his/her opinion.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "What's your take on X?"
    "What's your opinion about X?"
    "How does X strike you?"
    "How do you view X?"
