First of all, many people don’t know what a Phrasal Verb is, and this is our very first Phrasal Verb class, it’s perfect momento to explain what they are then…
A Phrasal Verbs is the connection of a VERB + 1 or 2 other PREPOSITIONS
They are very common in the everyday language and also in the spoken English throughout the world!
I’m going to use a text written by Samuel James, an American tutor who will probably become our next INFILTRATE…
Let’s get started!
Phrasal Verbs for the Pandemic
Since COVID-19 broke out earlier this year, governments around the world have ordered people to social distance, to keep away from each other at least six feet and to wear a face mask.
Has anyone you know come down with COVID?
Until someone comes up with a vaccine, it looks like the quarantine / lockdown will drag on. Many businesses have closed down, and many people are being laid off. But I have hope that we are going to pull through. Don’t freak out, even if you run out of toilet paper.
Try to stay in if you can. Clean up and wash your hands often. Wipe down surfaces and door handles with sanitizing wipes. Stock up on hand sanitizer and face masks, but don’t go crazy with hoarding supplies.
Keep the people on the front-lines in your prayers, and stay safe everybody.
