Student or Learner
Please read the following sentence:
I think we should try to bring him ALONG. He is quite an expert on this subject.
My question is: can I replace 'along' with 'in'? In my dictionary it reads 'bring somebody in' means to ask somebody to take part in....'.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
I didn't explain it clearly.
This is an exercise in my textbook. The original sentence is like this:
I think we should try to bring him ________. He is quite an expert on this subject.
The key is along. In my dictionary written by Chinese it has a definition of 'bring in' which I translated as 'ask somebody to take part in'. I don't know whether the translation is precise or not. According to what you explained both 'along' and 'in' are correct but meaning is different. Is that right?
