Mastering Phrasal Verbs: A Comprehensive Guide and Quiz 

What are phrasal verbs?

    Phrasal verbs are like special words made up of two parts: a verb and a particle (usually a preposition or an adverb). They work together to create a new meaning. For example, "pick up" means to lift something from the ground, and "look after" means to take care of someone or something. So, instead of just using one word, we combine words to make new meanings!
