    call on / upon:

    1. call on sb. to do sth.- you say in public that you want them to do that.

    e.g. We should call on all our resources to rescue wild creatures which are in the danger of extinction.

    我們應該動用一切資源來拯救瀕臨絕種的野生動物.

    <c.f> She called on / appealled to / asked for us to help her villagers. 她請求我們去幫助她的村民.

    2. call on sb.- you pay him a short visit.

    e.g. He intended to call on his grandma. 他想去看他的祖母.

    call for:

    1. call for sb.: you go to the building where he is, so that you can see he goes somewhere.

    e.g. I'll call for you / pick you up at 11 a.m.

    我早上11點會來接你.

    2. call for sth.: you demand that it should happen.

    e.g. Claire blisteringly called for her boyfriend carrying on her the back by foot for a mile because of his late arrival.

    由於男朋友遲到,Claire要求他揹著她走一英哩

    3. sth. calls for a particular action or quality: it needs or makes it necessary.

    e.g. The situation calls for prompt / immediate action.

    這局勢非立即行動不可.
