Student or Learner
Here are three brief excerpts from an English lesson I have found recently in the Internet. Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the expressions in bold are interpreted properly?
“I made an excuse to her that I really needed to go the bathroom, so I let her go quickly.“
let her go = finish the conversation with her and end the phone call
“A husband and wife are victims of a carjacking which ends in the wife being murdered. Crews and Reese become suspicious of the husband when he refuses to identify the suspect and they have to let him go free.”
carjacking = to commit forcible theft of (a vehicle) from its users
to let him go free = to set free him, to dismiss him
“I guess that’s what I get for making a rash action.”
that’s what I get for = is a phrase used when you do something that you shouldn’t have done and somehow you have some consequences for your actions or behavior.
Thank you for your efforts.
Yes, all are correct interpretations.
One of the sentences uses "which" when it should be "that", however. Do you know an easy way to pick out that rather common error?
(I'll give away the answer on my Edit, when I realize that it may not be a word choice error, but a lack of a vital comma that is wrong!)
