As you can see I didn’t work with all the different meanings that every phrasal verb have.
I think that the most important is:
- To internalize as many phrasal verbs as possible. (The most common ones first)
- For every phrasal verb to know some of its different meanings.
That being said, you don’t have to stress if you don’t know a lot of phrasal verbs.
Don’t worry, you just have to keep working on phrasal verbs on a regular basis.
It’s an accumulative process and if you keep learning them you are going to improve sooner than you think.
What You Have To Do…
It’s now your turn to use this strategy to learn phrasal verbs.
You can use the same complete list of phrasal verbs I list in this post or you can choose others phrasal verbs.
What I recommend is to prioritize the most common phrasal verbs first because there are so many that it’s almost impossible to know all of them.
I hope that these different posts about phrasal verbs are going to inspire you and motivate you to learn them because they are very common when speaking or writing (informal English).
