3 Phrasal Verbs you won’t find in a book
Phrasal verbs, every English learner’s nightmare. As teachers, we understand how strange Phrasal verbs are and how specific they are to the English language. You will be taught to learn Phrasal verbs by memory and the truth is, it may be the best way, you can’t really translate phrasal verbs in to Spanish as often, the equivalent does not exist.
In the classroom we teach you the basic phrasal verbs, Set up, fall out, look up etc etc but here on The Official Wellington House Blog, we want to give you more. Here are 3 phrasal verbs that guarantee to put you ahead of your classmates, read, learn and “show off” your phrasal verb knowledge.
- Example 1. I’m sorry I can’t talk more, but I have to dash off, I have a English class in 2 minutes!
- Example 2. I don’t know where Jordi went, he dashed off quickly without telling me where he was going.
- Example 1. I missed the end of the film, I must have dozed off!
- Example 2. The flight seemed to go really quickly, maybe it’s because I dozed off for half of it!
- Example 1. Hang on for a moment, I will go and look for your car keys and bring them back to you.
