Hi everyone, today's podcast is all about separable and inseparable phrasal verbs. Why can we say turn on a light, turn a light on, turn it on, but not turn on it? Why can we say look after a cat and look after it, but not look a cat after or look it after? You may find that a dictionary is useful while you listen to this podcast.
This is my first attempt at doing a podcast, and I'm afraid that the sound quality isn't perfect on this. Someone started off the fan on my desk as I was recording from underneath it (yeah, it's a long story, but hey, it's most of your English teachers will have lived under a desk at some stage. Often in a nest made from your homework )
This lesson is about Phrasal verbs. I'm only looking at one verb in particular, and focusing on literal and idiomatic meanings.
This podcast includes cats, dogs, and Italian dwarfs.
