Phrasal Verbs Machine
Cambridge University Press

LEVEL:
intermediate

Phrasal verbs: the bane of the ESL student. In English, phrasal verbs are among the most confusing topics for leaners. Unfortunately, however, you can’t avoid them: English speakers use phrasal verbs constantly, and they’re a must-learn if you want to sound natural when you speak English.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the complicated world of the phrasal verb, The Phrasal Verbs Machine is for you. Recommended by one of our English teachers, The Phrasal Verbs Machine puts the learner in an animated circus, and follows the adventures of a character named Phraso and his friends. Phraso frequently finds himself in situations that require phrasal verbs, which the app explains to you with animations and a detailed explanation.

Our teacher Linda points out that the app is especially useful because it adequately explains how phrasal verbs can often have more than one meaning, and gives examples of each. Further, it explains to learners which meaning is more common, so they know what they should focus on.

Given that The Phrasal Verbs Machine features translations into five popular languages, it’s especially useful for beginner and intermediate students who want extra help with basic meanings of phrasal verbs. But with a topic as complicated as phrasal verbs, even advanced students will benefit from peering into the animated world of Phraso.
