Phrasal Verbs in Daily English Conversations
Today, we’re going to practise two daily conversations to help you improve your fluency. Hello and welcome everyone. This is Minoo at AngloLink. As we often use phrasal verbs in our daily conversations, I have included quite a few of these verbs for you in these two dialogues. Just to remind you, a phrasal verb is a verb that consists of two parts. The first part is always a short verb, like ‘give’, ‘go’, ‘come’, ‘get’ etc. and the second part is a preposition, like ‘in’, ‘on’, ‘up’, ‘down’ etc. Now, each phrasal verb.
Usually has a nonphrasal synonym. For example, ‘You can give up smoking.’ or ‘You can quit smoking.’ ‘You can fill in a form.’ or ‘You can complete a form.’ So really, in terms of speaking, you don’t need phrasal verbs to express yourself. However, as native speakers use them quite a lot in their daily conversations, you need to be familiar with them. Now, the best way to learn these phrasal verbs is in context, in dialogues, in conversation. Please don’t waste your time memorising phrasal verbs from a list. Now, in the two dialogues that we’re going to practise, I have constructed each sentence.
