Assunto:  phrasal verb : '' to be up to"
 
Mensagem: 

 

To my mind  'to be up to' is used to express, most of the time jokingly: tramar ( to plot, to conspire)

 

O que  você tem andado a tramar?  What have  you been  up to (plotting, conspiring)?

We don't know what Iran is up to but it doesn't smell good.

 

Tambem pode significar ' ser capaz'.

 They want to make you the manager. Do you think you are up to it?

If you want to get tickets for that concert , you will have to queue for 10 hours. Do you think you are up to it?
