Phrasal verbs make you sound more natural in English!
You find phrasal verbs in conversation and informal writing all the time. You need to understand them to read newspaper headings and news stories - and dialogues in films and TV.
But it's even better to use them! When you include them in conversations, you'll sound more natural and advanced.
Why is this?
A common mistake is to use formal English in conversations. Here's an example:
"He established a company last year." (Too formal for a conversation).
"He set up a company last year." (Natural, phrasal verb)
Using phrasal verbs can make you sound more like a native English speaker.
So, what's the problem?
There are lots of phrasal verbs and it can feel as if you'll never remember them all.
BUT, there is a simple formula to help you understand thousands of phrasal verbs easily - even if you don't have any time to study English.
It's called The 'PVC' Formula!
How the PVC Formula helps YOU
The PVC Formula combines three elements for understanding phrasal verbs:
This is the second half of the phrasal verb and it's a word like "on", "off", "up" or "down". When you know the meaning of the particle, you can apply it to lots of other phrasal verbs as well.
Often the verb helps you to understand the phrasal verb - especially when it's a less common verb.
When a phrasal verb has more than one meaning, the context can help you understand it better.
But the best part of the formula ...
To help you understand phrasal verbs quickly and easily (without using a dictionary), I've developed the world's first 'Particle Guide"!
Understand 1000s of phrasal verbs!
