Following on from / following up from

Hi all,

Could you please explain me what exactly mean the following phrase and their usage:

Following on from - is this the same as with regards to … ?

following up from

No, its not like ‘with regards to’.

Following on from is like ‘after’ or ‘next’, and a formal phrase.


Following on from the dinner, there will be wine served in the garden.

In other words, ‘after dinner’.

(I think anyway! Not a phrase I’ve used in a while).

I’m not aware of ‘following up from’ - where did you hear that?

Sorry, It is following up to …

Thanks for your explanation.

‘following up to’ is still not something I’ve heard of.

I put in into a search engine and no example sentences came up.

Where did you get the phrase from?
