What is a phrasal verb?

A phrasal verb or multi-word verb is a main verb plus one or two particles e.g. work out (work = verb and out = particle).
Sometimes it is possible to guess the meaning of a phrasal verb e.g. sit down (sit) because the verb and the meaning are similar. However, it is often difficult to guess the meaning of a phrasal verb because the verb is not similar to the meaning e.g. put off (delay).
Also, phrasal verbs often have more than one meaning e.g. cut down (reduce and chop).
It is important for students of English to understand the use of phrasal verbs in context.

About the author

My name is Jamie Oliver (BSc. Hons, Cert. TESOL, PGCE Eng., Adv. Dip. TESOL) and I・m a qualified and experienced English Language Teacher. I have taught English in high schools and language schools across the world including Britain, Japan, Taiwan, UAE and Saudi Arabia. I have taught all ages and nationalities of students.

As an English teacher with over 15 years・ experience, I became frustrated by the lack of quality EFL materials available relating to phrasal verbs.
My students enjoyed learning phrasal verbs, but it took time and effort adapting resources to match their needs.

I also found my students wanted to study phrasal verbs but became frustrated by the current range of texts on the market today. They found the books uninteresting to use and forgot new words easily.
I wrote Phrasal Verbs in Britain to match the needs of both teachers and students. By putting together interesting, real world articles the vocabulary is easy to remember because students are interested in what they are learning.

What skills can I practice?

Phrasal Verbs in Britain practices reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. By using all four skills, the vocabulary is more easily remembered and absorbed.
