Advanced English Grammar: Phrasal Verbs 1

English phrasal verbs come in many shapes and sizes.

Typically, they’re a verb and preposition combination which, when combined, changes the meaning of the main verb into something else.

Most students of English find them difficult because sometimes the idiomatic uses either make no sense at all, or the meaning change is so drastic that even a good guesser has no idea what they mean.

Sometimes we call them two part verbs, three part verbs, or multi-word verbs.

Whatever you call them, you should know some basic truths regarding phrasal verb usage.

 advanced-english-grammar.com is a good place to start to improve your knowledge of English Phrasal Verbs. Use the menu on the left of the website to explore various aspects of Phrasal Verbs.


Advanced English Grammar and Prepositions 1

Learning prepositions can cause many difficulties for learners of the English language.

It does help to learn what prepositions are — and how they are used — but more importantly, you need to know the word combinations that you’ll find them in.

It’s a fact, some words just go together and all you can do is learn them ‘by heart.’

There are no specific reasons why— well, at least not obvious ones — and students often find this particular item of the English language difficult to master.

advanced-english-grammar.com is a good place to improve your knowledge of English Prepositions.  Use the Menu on the left of the website to learn about various aspects of Prepositions (amongst other things!).

Happy learning!
