๐Ÿ’• Phrasal Verbs & Academic Equivalents

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•Let’s talk about Phrasal Verbs!  

Phrasal Verbs are very common in oral English, their understanding is essential for communication and reading comprehension. Furthermore, when writing formally there are two reasons we strive to use the academic or formal equivalents of Phrasal Verbs.
  • First, Phrasal Verbs are highly idiomatic. Formal writing uses Standard English and avoids figurative language and slang.
  • Secondly, when writing formally in English precise vocabulary is expected.

Since Phrasal Verbs often have multiple meanings they can be difficult to understand and impede the meaning. Teaching your students the Academic vocabulary for Phrasal Verbs will enlarge their vocabulary and improve their formal English writing!
