Real English Conversation

Phrasal Verb Lesson 254 Image Website

In this English podcast lesson, you are going to learn another 5 phrasal verbs. In episode #253, you heard part 1 of the audio where Amy was driving up a long driveway to drop off a delivery order to a customer. In this lesson, you will hear how the story finishes and why this is one of her favorite stories from this job.

The phrasal verbs you will hear in this lesson are:

  • Walk over – to approach someone or something
  • Get back – to return
  • Come around – to walk/drive around an object
  • Leave open – anything that can open or close remains ‘open’
  • Put (something) up – to lift to a higher location


Using Real Conversations to Learn Phrasal Verbs

When you understand what is happening in a particular situation, your brain will automatically connect the meaning, the new vocabulary (or a phrasal verb in this case).  Hearing phrasal verbs being used in authentic communication is easier to learn and remember.

The audio sample that we used to create this lesson is from the conversation lesson about owning a delivery service where we shared some stories and experiences that we remember from the days of running the business and delivering to different customers.

To get the most benefit from this lesson, we recommend using the transcription from this podcast audio to help you dig deeper into the meaning, examples and vocabulary that we used.
