Phrasal Verb Exercises - Examples in Context
Were you a good student when you were at school?
I’m afraid I wasn’t if I’m honest. Often I didn’t hand in my homework, and I always felt I could get away with it because my teacher wasn’t strict. But because of this I couldn’t keep up with the course work and I ended up falling behind. Eventually I had to drop out of the school.
So no, I wasn’t really a good student. When I look back on my childhood, I wish I’d done things differently really as it meant I had to work harder to achieve things later on in life.
Do you think the growth in multinational corporations is a positive development?
I’m not sure it is such a good thing. Many people put forward arguments in favour it, claiming it has helped developing countries by creating jobs for local people as many of these companies have moved their manufacturing abroad. They then claim that the economic development in these countries will catch up with developed countries.
However, there is no real evidence that this is the case as most the profit flows back to the companies, not the people, and as soon as it becomes cheaper to manufacture in a different country, the companies will pull out of the country they are in and move to the more profitable one. So I don’t think there is any real long-term benefit.
