Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions:
💬 Why don't I understand native speakers?
💬 Why don't I sound natural when I talk?
💬 Why am I not progressing in English?
Was your answer YES?
Believe me, you are not alone...
PHRASAL VERBS could be your answer!
Phrasal verbs block the progress of many students.
Why are they so frustrating?
Let me explain:
A phrasal verb is a phrase or expression that consists of a verb plus a particle -usually a preposition.
Look at this verb:
Look at what happens when we add a preposition:
to make up = to reconcile after an argument
The whole phrase acts as a verb, and has a different meaning to the original verb!
How are learners of English supposed to understand and learn this?
Well, it gets even more frustrating when you realise that many phrasal verbs have more than one meaning!
to make up =
- to reconcile after an argument
They had a nasty argument but they made up shortly after.
- to invent a story or plan
I haven't done my homework so I will make up an excuse!
- to compensate for something lost, missed, or deficient
I left work early but I'll make up the time tomorrow.
Women make up 80% of the total number of employees at the company.
Now, I have some terrible news, and some excellent news.
I think we'll start with the terrible news, to get it out of the way:
There is A HUGE NUMBER of phrasal verbs, and you have to learn them one by one. It can be a major barrier for English students.
Many students have no structure to their learning, and end up studying phrasal inefficiently, in a boring way.
This means that they make little progress, and lose motivation.
Are you ready for the excellent news?
I absolutely love teaching phrasal verbs. I really do! I love teaching them in an easy and understandable way - in context, with lots of activities!
When a teacher enjoys teaching, students learn more!
