Ryan’s Phrase Of The Day: Fill In

Meaning #1: Replace someone short term/temporarily

Example: “If an employee goes on vacation they’ll need someone to fill in for them while they’re away.”

Meaning #2: Give information

Example: “Hey! I missed yesterday’s class. Can you fill me in?”

Meaning #3: Complete sth

Example: “When you enter a foreign country you usually need to fill in an arrival card.”

Phrasal verbs are very common and extremely useful. Many of them like “fill in” have multiple meanings and I believe are one of the big differences between English learners and native speakers.

See ya!

    The first meaning of "fill in" is same with "step in". Can they be used interchangeably?
