  1. Hello, Michael. Your lecture is so helpful and fun to learn English.
    Thank you for offering the opportunity to me learning REAL English.
    As you said, this sentence – we used to get along but now we’re not on speaking terms – could be used for
    the relationship that don’t get along any longer? Does this imply that they’re not get along anymore because of negative reasons, like a fighting something like that or the meaning neutral so I can use this term for a relationship that just not keep in touch anymore with any emotional thing.
    Thanks!

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment!
      Well…in a nutshell, no.
      “We’re not on speaking terms anymore” means that you had a falling-out (a fight) with the other person.
      To express the kind of relationship that you’ve asked about, you could say, “We’re no longer in touch” or “We’ve fallen out of touch.”
      When two people didn’t necessarily have a fight, but they just haven’t contacted each other for many years, we often say, “We fell out of touch after graduation” etc.
      Also, if a friend’s style and the people they associate with slowly changes over time we use the phrase, “We grew apart” to mean that we no longer communicate and can not really relate to each other anymore.

      Hope that helps!
