How do you learn phrasal verbs?
But there is something I have seen many English learners do that makes phrasal verbs much more difficult than they need to be. And there is a simple “fix” for this.
In this week’s episode, I answer a question I got from a couple listeners on “How to learn phrasal verbs.”
I know this is a common problem with many if you, and I have an opinion on how to make them less stressful
Listen to this episode and make your life better.
- For various reasons, phrasal verbs are difficult to use correctly
- Many English learners try to use them TOO MUCH< which is not only making it more difficult than it should, be also sounds “forced”, like they are trying to hard to sound “native.”
- Comprehension comes first. Learn the multiple meanings and uses by reading and listening to a lot of English.
- Start integrating phrasal verbs into your own speaking ONLY after you really understand the usage. Learn them slowly, one at a time.
