Student or Learner
Hi dear friends
I need some examples concerning the use of " not get off".
I have some other questions concerning two ideomatic expressions:
1)loose track of time.
2)Keep your fingers crossed.
I just need some more examples to get a better idea of when to use them correctly.
Thanks so much in advance.
You'll have to be more specific on what exactly you want concerning not to get off as there are several meanings
get off (sth)
to leave a bus, train, aircraft, or boat
She got off the train and ran towards him
get (sb) off (sth)
to avoid being punished for something that you have done wrong,
She was charged with fraud, but her lawyer managed to get her off.
for further examples you should have a look there
1)to lose track of time
She's lost track of the number of times he's asked her to lend him money.
2)Keep your fingers crossed
We're keeping our fingers crossed for a usingenglish.com anthology.
hope this helps.
