I was trying to help my father with his cell phone, but it didn’t work out.

Dependendo do contexto também podemos usar o phrasal verb “fall through” com o sentido de dar errado, né?

Tipo, quando estamos falando de encontros, festas, planos…, né?


Exactly, Marcio! “Fall through” means that a plan “falhou/não deu certo”. We taught this phrasal verb in our story “The Pony Express”. LINK ==><==LINK Here's the phrase in the story: "But now our plans have fallen through because of the white man and his 'Iron Horse'"

I really hope that my plans work out today.

I hope so, too, Sam.
