1569

Hi everyone, I'm Arnel. Today we're gonna look at 30 super common phrasal verbs you can use

every day! Before we start there are a couple things you need to remember.

One: Some phrasal verbs need an object. If a phrasal verb needs an object, I'll underline it for you.

Some phrasal verbs are separable. Again, if a phrasal verb is separable, I'll let you know.

Actually, I'll put a little s next to the phrasal verb so you know you can

separate that phrasal verb. And some phrasal verbs don't even need

an object. 30 phrasal verbs, let's start. I usually wake up at 6:00. Today I woke up at 6:30. Wake up,

woke up, woken up. Remember you need to change that verb form depending on the tense.

I woke up at 6:30, but I got up at 6:45.

Definitions: Wake up, stop sleeping. You wake up. Get up out of bed.

On Saturday I didn't get up until 11:00. Yes, usually we can use these interchangeably.

What time are you getting up tomorrow? Here it's clear I mean, what time are you waking up tomorrow?

I'm awake. I turned on my phone. I turned on my lamp. I turned on the heater.

I turned off the notifications. I turned off my lamp. I turned off the heater.

I opened my phone? I closed my lamp? Remember, use turn on and turn off for electronics.

I have an interview at 10:00. Interviews stress me out. Definition, make me stressed.

Paying bills stresses me out. Stress me out. Stress me out. Me is a pronoun, right?

If your phrasal verb is separable like, stress out.

You can see my s. The pronoun must go in the middle. Let's look at a few examples...

In these four sentences you can see only the first three are correct. The object can go in the middle,

after the phrasal verb, or the pronoun can go in the middle. Grammar tip to remember, never put a

pronoun after your phrasal verb. Let me know in the comments, what's something that stresses you out?

Why do interviews stress me out? I don't like the questions. I'm not good at coming up with answers.

I need to come up with a couple of ideas before 10:00. Can you help me come up with something?

Come up with something. Definition, to think of something to say, or you think of an

idea. Whoever came up with the cronut is a genius. Cronut. Croissant plus donut, cronut.

of something. Definition, you used everything, but you still need more. Look at my examples:

Turn down your music please!

Thank you.

Definitions, turn up, volume up. Turn down, volume down. And we only use turn up, turn down, with um

music or the tv. We wouldn't use it for people. For example, you wouldn't say: I'm sorry can you please

turn up? Next to my desk there's also a vending machine, they need to get rid of it.
