There are so many phrasal verbs so it’s very common for people to feel anxious about learning them. The key is to learn them little by little, adding to your vocabulary bit by bit. To help you out, we’ll be giving you one or two phrasal verbs to learn every Tuesday!
As we’ve just returned from the holidays, let’s use them to help give us some context.
1. ASK FOR
“What did you ask for for Christmas?”
“I asked for a new jacket and a pair of boots!”
2. STAY UP
“I usually stay up late, but on Christmas Eve I went to bed early so that Santa could come!”
“I was very tired on New Years Eve but I stayed up until midnight so I could watch the fireworks on TV!”
Did you get what you asked for for Christmas? And how late did you stay up on New Years Eve?
