What is a Phrasal Verb?

A phrasal verb is either:

* a verb and a preposition

* a verb and an adverb

* a verb, an adverb, and a preposition

Phrasal verbs are often used in informal speech, between family and/or friends. They are used very commonly in the English language.

The best thing to do is to memorize them. It isn't necessary to know all of the phrasal verbs to be able to have a conversation. You can use other verbs to communicate the same information. Although, it is important to at least commit them to memory so that when you hear them, you will understand what the person is saying.
