A workbook that introduces the most frequently used phrasal verbs in English and shows you how to use them effectively.

- “I like the topics and therefore decided to try some of these out on my learners. Sometimes they found the meaning part to be a little hard to understand. But after putting that together with the examples, they were confident that they did understand it. After going through all of the phrasal verbs on the double page and having them come up with their own examples we went on to the exercises. There is a variety of types of tasks to do and my learners found them to be challenging in a motivating way and fun. In the end, they were happy with the exercises and felt they had a better command of the phrasal verbs we had talked about.”Tanya Weindler, ELTAU newsletter, March 2016
