Mini English Lessons: Phrasal verbs (look out)

Let’s just be honest. Phrasal verbs are tricky.

All you need to do is change one small preposition and the whole meaning changes. Sometimes, teachers will sigh and tell you that, unfortunately, you just need to learn the list of phrasal verbs and their corresponding meanings.

But we don’t think that’s a very good learning technique. 

Cara takes you through her top tip on learning phrasal verbs in this Mini English Lesson: learn phrasal verbs in pairs and with a simple example in order to remember their meanings easily.
