Celine Dion wants you to 'go on' learning English!


One song that is popular all over the world is 'My heart will go on' by Celine Dion.  Let's listen to a clip...

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on

Let's read the lyrics together.

Here, the singer Celine Dion uses the phrase 'go on'.  In English, 'go on' means to continue.  There are also a number of other 'go' phrases verbs:

Go out - leave a place "I'm going out to the store.  Do you need anything?"
Go under - lose a business "My hair salon is about to go under."
Go by - pass something "I went by the graveyard on my way to work."
