Now it’s time for me to bring up another phrasal verb for you to learn!
That’s right, to bring up is a phrasal verb. Do you know what it means?
If I bring something up it means I mention it in conversation.
This verb can be seperable or inseperable and there is no difference in the meaning. Let’s look at some examples:
You should bring up your questions in class.
Don’t bring the divorce up with Mark.
To bring up also has another common meaning: to bring up a child is to raise or educate a child.
They brought him up to be very independent.
We can also turn it into a noun like this:
I had a very nice upbringing in a beautiful small town near the beach.
There you go! Now you have a new phrasal verb to bring up when you are preparing for the FCE.
