This week’s phrasal verb is:

to come across something

It means to find something by chance and English people use it a lot.

For example:

If you use Facebook, you might come across an old friend from the past. (present simple)

I was reading a newspaper and I came across an interesting article. (past simple)

I’ve just come across a new word in my dictionary.  (present perfect)
