The first 6 phrasal verbs (e.g. warm up to, push for, put off, talk into) are introduced through a short dialogue about 2 friends talking about returning to the office full-time. To practise, students choose the correct phrasal verb to complete 6 sentences.
The rest of the phrasal verbs (e.g. sell on, lay out, give in, put you up to, talk out of) are introduced through 2 short texts, each including 3 phrasal verbs. To practise, students complete 6 short dialogues with the correct phrasal verb.
The last 3 activities are focused on speaking and writing. First, students answer 4 questions, starting with the phrase given. Then, they provide a suitable response in 4 different situations, using a specific phrasal verb that is given. Lastly, they are given 2 scenarios and are asked to role-play them. You can use the printable conversation cards for additional speaking practice.
This lesson can be used as a Business English lesson, as well as a General English lesson. You can combine it with other lessons about communication, business meetings, negotiations, and agreements.
