14 Common Words That Didn't Exist 20 Years Ago

(EN) - English Phrasal Verbs List | englishclub.com | English Language Learning | Scoop.it

"Phrasal verbs are usually two-word phrases consisting of verb + adverb or verb + preposition. Think of them as you would any other English vocabulary. Study them as you come across them, rather than trying to memorize many at once. Use the list below as a reference guide when you find an expression that you don't recognize. The examples will help you understand the meanings. If you think of each phrasal verb as a separate verb with a specific meaning, you will be able to remember it more easily. Like many other verbs, phrasal verbs often have more than one meaning."

Learning "chunks" and phrasal verbs is the way to go!
