A few phrasal verbs
Whether they are accompanied by prepositions ( introducing a complement) or by adverbs ( which are linked to the verb and modify its meaning ), many English verbs are followed by "little words" which are really making things difficult for the people who use them, especially if they are foreigners ...
Here, in this lesson, I have chosen not to study the easiest and most usual verbs such as "get up/ stand up", "sit down", "give up" etc. Yet, the verbs studied here are very common and it would be wise to take a little time to learn them... Good luck!

I chose verbs which look quite different in order to make it easier for you not to mix them up; yet, if you do, please, start studying the lesson again learning 3 or 4 verbs at a time. Don't give up!
I give you THE FORCE.
