4 Phrasal verbs - grammar


The phrasal verbs in Exercise 3 take an object. Other phrasal verbs like `sit down' and `stand up' don't
take an object (e.g. "John, please stand up!"). For phrasal verbs that take an object, there are normally
two possible positions where the object can go. If the object is a pronoun, there is normally only one
possible position. Studt the table below.
Phrasal verb

Object noun

Object pronoun (me, you, him, it, etc.)

turn on

VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR

1- Watch and write


Play the video and have the students match each phrasal verb to the correct clip individually. If the students
are completely unfamiliar with the vocabulary, read aloud each phrasal verb or set of phrasal verbs while the
corresponding clip is playing. As a follow up, you can make up sentences with the phrasal verbs, read them aloud
and have individual students perform the actions, e.g. `Enrique, stand up and then sit down.' Explain that `switch
on' and `turn on' have very similar meanings. Generally, `switch on' indicates that the object includes a switch
connected to an electronic circuit whereas `turn on' can include objects with knobs (taps, old television sets, etc.)
However, both terms are often used interchangeably with `turn on' being more common in the United States.
