It’s phrasal verb day on @EnglishTips4U. :)) Anyway, who knows what a phrasal verb is? We have discussed this in our previous sessions. :)
A phrasal verb is usually a two-word phrase consisting of verb + adverb or verb + preposition. Examples: turn on, shut down.
Today we’re gonna do an #EngGame on phrasal verb. The theme? I bet you’re using computer everyday, so it’ll be about computer. :)
Here’s how to join #EngGame: fill in the gaps with the right letters so they’ll form phrasal verbs. There’ll be clues as well. :)
