Let’s have some Phrasal Verbs.

Not had them for a while.

“Do you speak Spanish?”.   “Not very well, but I can ‘get by’ “.

‘Get by’ means, manage to succeed, just about cope with something, manage to cope but with a little difficulty.

The management meeting is going to be difficult tomorrow.  But I am ‘looking forward to it’.

‘Looking forward to it’ (something) means, expecting something good to happen.  You expect something exciting or pleasurable will happen.  Another example; “I’m really ‘looking forward to’ seeing you tomorrow”.
