I called my boss, but I couldn’t get through to him today.

Better try again. 🙂

People tried to call him, but they couldn’t get through to him because he’s deaf.

They’d better try another method!

I needed to speak with my husband. I called him, but I couldn’t get through to him.

Uh-oh! I know a husband who is in trouble! 😀

We tried to call our mom and dad, but we couldn’t get through to them!

They are probably hiding from you! haha

I would like to talk with my wife, but I couldn’t get through to her.

If she is like my wife, she leaves her cell phone in her purse and never hears it ringing.

I tried to call my girlfriend but I couldn’t get through to her.

Uh-oh! 🙂

I´m trying to study, but i´m not getting through to me! (it´s correct? to me?, can i say that?) Eu estou tentando estudar, mas não estou conseguindo…)

Obrigado pela pergunta, Silvana. Na verdade, não dá para traduzir “get through” simplesmente como “não conseguir”. O phrasal verb, no sentido deste episódio, é sempre ligado com conseguir falar com alguém por telefone. Existe outro significado de “get through” no sentido de “conseguir comunicar com alguém e fazê-lo e entender um princípio”, tipo quando você finalmente consegue “get through to” um adolescente sobre a importancia de trabalhar, por exemplo, mas também não encaixaria muito bem no seu exemplo. Na sua sentença, você poderia dizer, “I am trying to study, but I am having a hard time concentrating.” (se você está tendo dificuldade em concentrar, por exemplo). Ou outra coisa, dependendo do que você está querendo dizer por “não estou conseguindo”.

Acredito que ela pode ter se confundido porque vc ensinou o significado de “make it” (conseguir) no mesmo episódio. “I’m trying to study, but I’m not making it.”

Sim, verdade. Existe o “make it” nestes dois sentidos, tinha esquecido que eu havia comentado isso no episódio:

to succeed in a particular activity
She made it in films when she was still a teenager.

to manage to arrive on time
We just made it in time for the wedding.

He’ll understand – I hope! 😀

Hi Tim! I’d just like to leave a suggestion for the translation of today’s term:completar a ligação.

Obrigado, João. Sim, esta é uma boa sugestão. Só esteja ciente que nem sempre vai ser só nesse sentido. Veja estes dois exemplos do dicionário:

I tried to call her but couldn’t get through.
I got through to the wrong department.

O primeiro encaixaria.

Hi Tim! Glad to see you around!

I couldn’t get through to the Pope to suggest him to not use his ring when people kiss his hand.

Please correct me if I’m wrong:
Get through also can be used to make someone to understand something or when people are throughout an ordeal in their lives or when someone finish something
E.g I need to get through to my friend and make her see that turn the job offer down isn’t the best idea.
She got through an ordeal when she was unemployed.
Finally, I got through the monthly report.

Tks for your tips Tim!

You are correct in your examples, Vera. Very good.
