Hi Tuan Tran,


Thanks for posting.


"Pick up" is a phrasal verb and in this case means that the call is taken/answered automatically and "sent to the voice mailbox of the person youโ€™re trying to reach.โ€, that is, the person who called can record a message to the one he/she is trying to contact.


Please check out our English dictionary for the meaning, writing and pronunciation of English words/sentences:

Also, in our Grammar bank you can search "phrasal" and find the lessons with more details about this particular point (phrasal verbs)

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Jessi

yes, this is very helpful and will surely come in handy soon.

i'm trying to force myself to use these kind of sentences when it comes to something already decided.


Tomorrow I will be using the present progressive tense all day long:shock:

Bye for now

Hi architettomichelotti,


Hmm, this is a good question!


To me, the first one ("Tomorrow I'll be speaking at the university") sounds better, because when we use the progressive form, it sounds like we are talking about something that has already been decided and planned.


Here's another example:


Next month I'll be going to Mexico./Next month I'm going to Mexico.


These sentences sound more natural to me than "Next month I'll go to Mexico". This sentence makes it sound like the decision was made right now, but the two sentences above make it sound like we are talking about something that is already decided.


Did that help you? :D

Hi Jessi

in the lesson notes we ran again into the damn present progressive tense:shock:

TOMORROW I'LL BE SPEAKING AT THE UNIVERISTY


It is still very hard to me to understand why to describe what will happen in the future we need to use the present progressive tense:roll:


Why can't we just say: TOMORROW I WILL SPEAK AT THE UNIVERITY.


What's the difference between the two of them?

Thanks in advance

Bye
