English phrasal verb – Get over

Phrasal verb – Get over

We looked at the verb get on this blog a few weeks ago so let’s try a phrasal verb that uses the verb get with the preposition over.

get over = to recover from illness or disappointment.

“I had a bad cold for 2 weeks, but finally I finally got over it!” = Now I am better, I have recovered from my cold.




“My son Jeff was very sad when he wasn’t chosen to play on the soccer team. I took him to the ice cream store to help him get over it.” = I want to help him feel better (recover) after getting the news that he didn’t make the team, so I bought him some ice cream to help him feel better.

"Ice cream can help me get over anything!"
