One of the big challenges for students learning English is to memorise and to use all of the different phrasal verbs that we have in this language. A phrasal verb consists of verb and a preposition and the preposition changes the meaning of the verb. For example, the verb to look means ‘to direct your gaze’, but to look after means to ‘care for’. In class this afternoon we focused on phrasal verbs that begin with draw.
