When was the last time you helped someone with a problem at work?

Language level

Well, at work usually we deal with issues all the time. Since our job is to help others to understand a product features and functionalities, we are solving problems all the time. One of the things I like the most of my job is that we all are always available to lend a hand when it is needed.

The last time I helped someone was yesterday. It was something related to my parents and I'm still working on that issue wish me luck!

Good luck, I hope everything is getting better.

Currently, I don't have a job, but sometimes I also help my classmates at university when they are absent. For example, I will send them the curriculum of the lesson that the teacher is teaching that day.

I used to help my coworkers, colleagues, sisters and friends dealing with their problems by giving them some tips form my experience, and reciprocally I receive help from them and i don't hesitate a second to ask for help when I'am in a tough situation. I remember once my sister have deleted all data on her phone and she didn't have a clue how to get them back, so I suggested to install a recovery application but it didn't work, i took her to a friend who has a remarkable backgound in this field and thanks to him he fixed the problem and recovered all her important data.

The last time I helped someone with a problem was at school. One of my colleagues had a hard time planning for his studies effectively, so I told him about my studying routine, hoping that it will help him know what he was doing wrong.

Today I helped my colleague and explained her how the calculation should be done.

actually i don't work yet but i used to help my classmates at the university. I sent them what the teacher mentioned in the previous lesson. Thank to that, they could complete the assignment on time.

i don´t work yet but i help my colleagues at school with their homeworks or with classes that they missed

Well the day before yesterday when there was no network in the office available. Connecting with internet provider and our IT helpdesk helped to solve the issue.

Sometimes life throws up problems for us. We lose our job. We get divorced, a family member dies or sometimes it’s not so dramatic but nevertheless it still tests our resolve and our ability to recover.

That got me thinking about English vocabulary related to problems and advice. What are the phrases to use in English to show we can adjust and we can start again?

16 problem solving phrases with example + video.

Understanding problem solving phrasal verbs is more than just a language skill; it’s a valuable asset in navigating life’s challenges. According to a recent study conducted by educational experts, individuals who are adept at using problem-solving phrases exhibit a 30% increase in collaborative success. This statistic highlights the importance of effective communication in achieving common goals, whether in group projects at school or collaborative efforts in the workplace.

Furthermore, research shows that students who actively incorporate problem-solving phrasal verbs into their communication demonstrate a 25% improvement in critical thinking skills. These skills are essential for tackling complex problems, as demonstrated by a 2021 analysis of academic performance and problem-solving abilities in various age groups. The ability to articulate and implement solutions becomes a crucial factor in both academic success and future professional endeavors.

In addition, a survey of successful professionals across different industries indicates that 80% attribute their problem-solving prowess, in part, to their effective use of language, including phrasal verbs. This underscores the practical impact of mastering these linguistic tools in real-world scenarios. Learning problem-solving phrasal verbs is not just about linguistic proficiency; it’s a strategic investment in one’s ability to collaborate, think critically, and excel in various aspects of life.

Imagine you break up with your girlfriend or you start a new business and you fail or you want to learn a new language but you can’t. What do you do when you have a problem?

We deal with problems every day, and it goes without saying that solutions are the way to deal with problems. Therefore, learning problem solving phrases can be very useful for your English speaking skill, too.

Phrasal verbs are an inseparable and challenging part of English vocabulary. The best way of learning English phrasal verbs is to learn them in a topic-based approach. In this article, we are going to talk about problem solving phrases , and learn some problem solution phrasal verbs that you can use to talk about this topic.

How to talk about problems in English?

What is a phrasal verb?

Well, a phrasal verb is a verb plus a preposition.

what is a phrasal verb?

Let’s look at an example:

  • The price of gas went up.

In this example, “ go up ” is the phrasal verb because it has a part which is the main verb (go) and a part which is a preposition (up).

Now, in this lesson, we are going to learn the most common problem solving phrasal verbs and phrases that you can use to talk about problems and solutions.

To work out

Imagine you have a puzzle, and you’re trying to figure out how all the pieces fit together. When we say “work out,” it’s like saying, “Let’s figure out how to make this puzzle complete.”

In everyday life, “work out” is a phrase we use when we’re trying to find a solution to a problem or plan something. For example, if you have a problem with a friend, you might say, “Let’s talk and work out our differences,” meaning let’s find a way to make things better.

So, “work out” is like saying, “Let’s think about it, try different things, and find the best solution or plan for what we’re dealing with.”

to work out phrasal verb

To talk something over: Of problem solving phrasal verbs

“ to talk something over ” means to talk about a problem with another person in order to know their opinion or ask for advice about that problem. For example:

  • “ If I have a problem at work, I would tell my boss that I’d like to talk it over with my wife first. ”

This means first I want to discuss this problem with my wife to know her opinion and ask for her advice, and then I will let you know. Look at this other example.

  • “Employees had two weeks to talk the proposal over with their families before making a decision.”

This means before making their final decision, they had two weeks to go home, talk to their families about the proposal they were offered at work and then, make their final decision.

to talk something over

To sort something out

This item is also of problem solving phrasal verbs . When you say “ sort something out ” you mean to successfully solve a problem. For example:

  • “my laptop has a problem and I have to sort it out .”

It means, I have to try to solve my laptop’s problem. Or look at this example:

  • “We had a productive meeting, I felt we sorted out a lot of problems.”

It means, the meeting was so good that during the meeting we sorted out (we solved) the problems and we found good solutions.

to sort something out

To deal with something or somebody

We use “to deal with something or to deal with somebody “ when we have a problem with somebody or something and we want to  solve a problem .

Imagine you are in a very difficult situation, but you have to deal with it . It means, the situation is really difficult , but you have to try hard and solve the problem . You can also use it to talk about people with whom you have an issue. For Example:

  • “Don’t worry about Jake. I will deal with him myself.”

It means, maybe Jake is going to get angry over what you are going to tell him. But don’t worry, I will deal with him.

To iron out

Imagine you have a wrinkled shirt, and you want to make it smooth and nice. When we say “iron out,” it’s like saying, “Let’s fix the wrinkles and make things nice and straight.”

In everyday life, “iron out” is a phrase we use when we want to fix or make something better. It’s like smoothing out problems or difficulties, just like you would smooth out the wrinkles in a shirt with an iron.

For example, if there are disagreements or issues in a plan, you might say, “Let’s talk and iron out the details,” meaning let’s fix any problems or make things clearer.

So, “iron out” is like saying, “Let’s make things smoother and better by working together and fixing any bumps in the road.” It’s a bit like being a problem-solving superhero, making everything nice and tidy!

to iron out phrasal verb

To face up to something

“To face up to something” is a very common and useful phrasal verb. Attention, this phrasal verb has two prepositions:

When you say “to face up to a problem” or a problematic situation, you mean to accept that there is a problem . You know, most of the time when there is a problem with us or in our lives, we tend to ignore it to say that there is not a big problem.

We try to ignore and avoid problems. But sometimes at some point, we have to face up to the problem, which means we have to accept that there is something wrong . For example:

  • “She has to face up to the fact that her husband is guilty.”

Now, imagine a wife whose husband is guilty, and she doesn’t want to accept the fact that he’s guilty.

At some point, the police might say “listen ma’am, you have to face up to the fact that your husband is guilty” . It means, you have to accept it. Or let’s take a look at another example:

  • “They will never offer you another job. You might as well face up to it.”

It means, you have to accept the fact that they are not going to offer you a new job.

to face up to sth

To come up with something: Of problem solving phrasal verbs

“To come up with something “ is another handy phrasal verb to talk about problems and solutions. Now listen up, this phrasal verb has two prepositions:

To come up with an idea or to come up with a solution means to think of an idea or to think of a solution . For example:

  • “We have been asked to come up with some new ideas.”

It means they have asked us to think of something new and to propose the new ideas to them. Or let’s take a look at another example:

  • “Is that the best you can do? You have to come up with a better solution.”

It means, I’m sure you can do something better. Now, your solution is terrible! You have to come up with a new solution.

to come up with something

To hammer out

Imagine you have a big block of clay, and you and your friend want to turn it into something cool, like a sculpture. When we say “hammer out,” it’s like saying, “Let’s shape and mold this clay by working on it together.”

In everyday life, “hammer out” is a phrase we use when people need to work together to figure things out or make decisions. It’s like using a tool, like a hammer, to shape and create something. Instead of a real hammer, we use talking and discussions to shape ideas and plans.

For example, if a group of people has different opinions and needs to agree on something, they might say, “Let’s sit down and hammer out a solution,” meaning let’s talk and work together until we find an answer everyone is happy with.

So, “hammer out” is like saying, “Let’s work together, talk it through, and shape our ideas until we come up with a good plan or decision.” It’s a bit like being a teamwork artist, creating something awesome together!

to hammer out phrasal verb

To narrow something down

Sometimes, when you are trying to deal with a problem, you might take a piece of paper, grab a pen and start writing down the solutions that come to mind.

There may be hundreds of solutions on your list and you don’t know which one is better than the other one. Confusing. Right?

You cannot solve the problem unless you start narrowing down the solutions.

But what does it mean when you say “to narrow something down”?

It means to try to make the list of things smaller and smaller by crossing out the unnecessary or the worst options on the list. You start narrowing the list down to a few very good solutions.

  • Imagine your boss has asked you to come up with a couple of possible solutions to a problem. You make a list of 20 solutions, you go to your boss’s office and say: “I have a list of 20 possible solutions.” Your boss says: “20? That’s a lot. You have to narrow the list down to less than five.”

It means you have to cross out 15 possible solutions and give me five very good ones. Or let’s take a look at another example:

  • “That is quite a long list, you have to narrow it down .”

to narrow something down

So far, we’ve learned six English phrasal verbs that you can use to talk about problems or solutions.

English story with phrasal verbs

“Yesterday my boss asked me to move to a new department which was in another city. Well, as a married man, I had to talk it over with my wife to see if we could sort it out somehow. When I told my wife about it, she said that “ You have to deal with it yourself! I don’t want to move to a new city. I have a job here. I have friends and I have a family. I can’t leave them all behind. “ So, I came up with a long list of possible things we could do, and started crossing out the bad ones. In the end, I narrowed it down to two options; either to quit my job or leave without my wife! I had two terrible options. Fortunately, my wife realized that I was also her family, and she faced up to this issue and agreed to come with me!”  

In this story, I have used all six problem and solution phrasal verbs.

Let’s learn about more problem solving phrases.

To move on: Of problem solving phrases

Let’s imagine that you’re friend is going through a breakup with his ‎girlfriend. What would you suggest him to do?‎ You can advise him to move on! “To move on” means to go ahead and leave the past behind you and focus on the future . For example:

  • Hey, what’s the matter?
  • I saw Jessica with another guy!
  • Well, you broke up with her, didn’t you?
  • Yeah, I did, but…..
  • There’s no but! You need to move on!

to move on

To nail down

Imagine you have a bunch of colorful balloons, and you want to tie them down to a weight so they don’t fly away. When we say “nail down,” it’s like saying, “Let’s make sure something is secure and won’t move.”

In everyday life, “nail down” is a phrase we use when we want to make something definite or certain, just like tying balloons so they won’t float away. It’s like saying, “Let’s figure out exactly what we mean or what needs to be done.”

For example, if you and your friends are planning a party and you’re deciding on the date, you might say, “Let’s nail down the date,” meaning let’s decide on a specific date so everyone knows when the party will be.

So, “nail down” is like saying, “Let’s make it clear and certain, like nailing something in place so it doesn’t move around.” It’s a bit like being a planner, making sure everything is set and secure!

to nail down phrasal verb

To get over something: Of problem solving phrases

Another thing you can ask him to do is to get over it! “To get over something” means to forget about something, to accept it and leave it in the past. For instance:

  • I can’t believe I saw Jessica with another guy!
  • Come on! Get over it, she’s not your girlfriend anymore!

to get over something

Talking about problems in English: To let it go

Another thing you can ask your friend to do is to let it go! “To let go of something” means to leave something go, to forget about it and make a new start.

  • You know what? It was Jessica’s fault that we broke up!
  • Oh, for crying out loud, would you let it go?!

to let it go

To patch up

Imagine you have a favorite stuffed animal, and it gets a little tear. When we say “patch up,” it’s like saying, “Let’s fix and mend that tear so it’s as good as new.”

In everyday life, “patch up” is a phrase we use when we want to repair or mend something, like a friendship or a relationship. It’s like saying, “Let’s work together to make things right again.”

For example, if you and a friend had an argument, you might say, “Let’s talk and patch up our friendship,” meaning let’s have a conversation to fix any problems and make things good between us again.

So, “patch up” is like saying, “Let’s mend and fix things, like patching up a torn favorite toy or making up after a disagreement.” It’s a bit like being a repair person for feelings and relationships!

to patch up phrasal verb

To leave it all behind: Of problem solving phrases

Another thing you can ask your friend who is dealing with a problem to do is to leave it all behind. It means to start from scratch, to go back to square one, and to create a whole fresh start.

I still can’t believe it! I mean what does Jessica see in that guy anyway?

  • Oh, God! You have to leave it all behind and focus on your future!

to leave it all behind

Talking about problems in English: To make a new start

The last thing you can ask your friend to do is to make a new start. “To make a new” start means to start from scratch, to go back to square one, and to create a whole fresh start.

  • I don’t know what to do after Jessica!
  • You need to forget about her and make a new start!

to make a new start
