Advanced - phrasal verbs

Phrasal Verb Generators

These have a slightly different approach to phrasal verb learning. Two boxes contain a) the most common verbs that make up phrasal verbs b) the most common particles that make up the second part of phrasal verbs. Students work together to "generate" as many legitimate phrasal verbs as possible. As a back-up, a gap-fill exercise follows where students have to use phrasal verbs to fill the spaces.
