    You are so lucky to be the first one to comment.

      Even though I do not work in an office, I found this set of phrasal verbs very useful.

      Just one comment on the lesson: Could you please explain the difference to us between these two phrasal verbs: Fill in_vs_Fill out.

      I looked them up in a monolingual dictionary. It provides the same definition for both of them, but up to now I can’t spot the difference beetween the two?

      Thanks in advance for your suppport and valuable lesson Alex.

      Thursday, June 1st 2017

        Fill in –> mainly British
        Fill out –> mainly US

        Same meaning: writing info in the spaces on a form.

Thank you. 9/10 I forgot that present perfect uses third form of verb.

Saturday, May 20th 2017

Only two doubts with “to come up” and “to call off” because the phrasal verbs are ambiguous sometimes, but it hasn’t been a difficult lesson to understand, bit by bit or step by step we might memorize a good amount of phrasal verbs like these, there are more than ten, and that’s the difficulty of this topic. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, a good and short explanation of phrasal verbs, very useful.

Saturday, May 20th 2017

Good job Alex!

I work in an office job (actually it’s a Public Bureau), and all this vocabulary would be suitable if I used English there. Unfourtunately I can only use Portuguese. Perhaps in the future I will have an opportunity to use a foreign language at work…
