Phrasal verbs sound complicated, but they’re really not; you must just consider them as any other verb. They’re composed of one main verb (here, get) and a preposition or adverb, or both (along). In a sentence, you conjugate the verb, as you would at any other time.
Here are some examples for get along:
- My mother and I don’t get along; if we’re together more than a few hours we inevitably end up fighting.
- I get a long really well with my famiy in law.
- My dog and cats don’t get along at all!
- Who do you get along best with at school?
- Does she get along with her brothers and sisters?
Disclaimer: this isn’t the only meaning for this phrasal verb. You can can find two other meanings on the Merriam Webster dictionary here.
