“I definitely lost my fear of making mistakes with phrasal verbs.” ~ Marisa, from Spain
Are you frustrated with phrasal verbs?
Are you confused by the differences between take up, take in, take out, take off, take away, take over, and take back?
Phrasal verbs can make it difficult to understand spoken English…
even if you’ve studied the language for a long time.
Many students learn English from textbooks, but when they visit an English-speaking country or talk with a native speaker, their understanding is limited – because the textbook didn’t focus on the phrasal verbs that are SO common in everyday spoken English.
If you want to be fluent in English, you NEED to know phrasal verbs and how they are used in everyday situations and conversations.
This course will teach you 500 phrasal verbs.
… but it’s NOT just memorizing lists.
That’s not very effective – and it’s boring too!
Instead, you’ll learn the phrasal verbs in context through stories and conversations, as well as practice exercises to help you use the phrasal verbs in YOUR English immediately.

How will this course help me?
It teaches you phrasal verbs in the most natural way – through everyday conversations. Seeing and hearing the phrasal verbs in context helps you remember them much better. This is how native speakers learn phrasal verbs.
Each lesson begins with a short conversation about the lesson topic, and many phrasal verbs are used in the dialogue. Then, a video explanation teaches you what each phrasal verb means, giving you more details about each expression.
Finally, you can practice using the new phrasal verbs immediately in quizzes and writing exercises. This is one of the most important steps, because it helps you not only “know” the phrasal verbs, but actively USE them in your English – improving your vocabulary and helping you speak English more like a native speaker (since we use phrasal verbs very frequently).

Student Story: Marisa
“My story with the English language started three years ago. I always had read the tips Shayna sent me by e-mail and I eventually decided to do the Phrasal Verb course.
I definitely lost my fear of making mistakes with phrasal verbs, because the dialogues of every lesson are incredibly interesting and clear.
You can imagine all the situations because they are part of our everyday life, and in this way they are easy to learn and use in my sentences.
One of the best exercises for me was sending my homework to Shayna and receiving her corrections. I was looking forward to her tips and suggestions in order to improve my writing.
I highly recommend this course to all students – especially to those who feel scared to death of phrasal verbs and want to become friends forever with phrasal verbs.”
