    For "take charge (of)" look here: http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/take+charge
    "take charge off" doesn't exist.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: take charge off

    It's "take charge OF."

    To take charge is to become the leader or make yourself the leader. Examples:

    - "I'm taking charge of the committee" means "I'm making myself the leader of the committee."

    - "We asked Lakshmi to take charge of finances" means "We asked Lapsing to be responsible for finances."

    Do you understand the expression now?

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    When you ask the meanings of words or phrases, it is always helpful if you provide a sentence in which you have seen them used. Please try to remember this in future. Thank you.
