So here we are in the streets of Bournemouth one of the most commonly asked questions
I get apart from how come you look so
young for your age is how do we learn phrasal firms

I'm often asked if I can recommend a book on phrasal verbs I can it's called the
English Dictionary

however because I'm feeling quite generous we're going to
take a look today at some of the most

common phrasal verbs that we use every single
day of the week look at how they work

just a few different types I'm gonna get
run over

yeah some common phrasal verbs that we
use every day and we use phrasal verbs

every single day of the week how do you
feel about phrasal verbs

Students often worry about phrasal verbs

they are a problematic

often as the literal usage meaning and
often as a more idiomatic meaning

however they are verbs behave like a
verbs, verbs with a particle

I like to think of it as a vocabulary
you even know them or you don't but

the best way to learn phrasal verbs in

often you will hear a new phrasal verb in the street or talking to English friends and

thats time to make a note of it and
then ask them what it means or look it up

Phrasal verbs are mainly used informally, conversational and we often have a latin based word which is more formal.

everytime you hear one put in the notebook and then start to use it I mean if you don't use

them you gonna forget them anyway. Now back to Pete in the studio

A Phrasal consists of verb + an adverb or particle the purpose
of the particle is to change the meaning

of the verb for example carry on the
verb carry, I carry my bag, carry on means

continue so this verb + this particle
has changed the meaning of the verb

there are two types of phrasal group a
phrasal verbs without an object

group B phrasal verbs with an object now
group A are easy for example

my car has broken down no object
phrasal verbs with an object are

slightly more complicated some of them
are separable and some of them are

inseparable they cannot be separated
let's look at separable phrasal verbs

I'm going to use the verb take off

she took off her jacket take off past
simple took off take off means remove the

opposite is put on, take off put on.

Be careful not all phrasal verbs have phrasal verbs opposite

the separable phrasal verbs behave in a
particular way we can have the noun phrase
after the phrasal verb she took off
her jacket however you can also separate

the verb from the particle she took her
jacket off so we have separated the verb

from the particle and we put the noun
phrase between them both are possible

there's no real difference however if the
object is a personal pro noun it must go

in the middle position she took off her jacket she
took her jacket off, she took it off

the personal pro noun has to go in the middle
position not in the end position.

to show you an example of an inseparable
phrasalverb I'm going to use look after look

after means to care for he looks after
his mother, he looks after her, he looks his mother after, now as you get more
familiar with phrasal verbs hopefully

you begin to develop an instinct for
when it sounds wrong he looks his mother after doesn't sound good

however as I said before when you're not
sure check in a dictionary the

dictionary will tell you whether it's
seperable or inseparable

take off is a great example of how phrasal verbs
work how they can be very confusing

often there is more than one meaning
here we have take off she took off her

jacket which means removed however we
also used take off for aeroplanes the

airplane took off, take off is the opposite of land so it's
the same verb with a completely different

meaning and also they behave differently
take off requires an object when we mean

remove take off for airplanes has no
object so the same phrasal verb can have

different meanings and also behave
differently again

good English Dictionary will have a list
of the common phrasal verbs take on take

it goes on I hope that was useful just
remember don't be afraid of them

think of it as vocabulary you either know
it or you don't.
