Today we did pgs 11, 12, 13, 37 & 38 in the FC Trainer and we also did the listening test on pgs 50 & 51. We finished pg 7 and did page 8 in the Student Book. This is the Sex and the City handout 08.

REMEMBER:
There are four types of phrasal verbs. Phrasal verbs can be separable or inseparable and they can take an object or not. Here is a guide to the basics of phrasal verbs.

Phrasal Verbs which Take Objects

Phrasal verbs which take objects can be separable or inseparable:

Separable phrasal verbs can remain together when using an object that is a noun or noun phrase.

  • I picked Tom up. OR I picked up Tom.
  • They put their friends up. OR They put up their friends.

Separable phrasal verbs MUST be separated when a pronoun is used:

  • We picked him up at the station. NOT We picked up him at the station.
  • They put them up. NOT They put up them.

Inseparable phrasal verbs always remain together. It makes no difference if a noun or pronoun is used.

  • We set off for the beach. / We set off for it.
  • They are looking after the children. / They are looking after them.

Phrasal Verbs which Don’t Take Objects

Some phrasal verbs do not take objects. These phrasal verbs are ALWAYS inseparable.

  • They thieves got away.
  • The bus broke down on the way to work.
  • She got up early.

Three-word Phrasal Verbs

Some verbs are followed by two prepositions (or adverbs). These phrasal verbs are ALWAYS inseparable.

  • I’m looking forward to meeting John. OR I’m looking forward to meeting him.
  • They didn’t get on with their mother. OR They didn’t get on with her.
