Phrasal verbs: travel

Worksheet overview

This ESL worksheet is dedicated to 12 phrasal verbs about travel. Students will learn how to use them to talk about their travel plans, past trips and holidays.
The first 9 phrasal verbs are introduced through a short text describing a trip (e.g. freshen up, looking forward to, show someone around). Students work out the meaning of the verbs and then match them to their definitions. To practise, they complete 4 statements with the correct phrasal verbs and then discuss the statements in pairs or small groups.
The last 3 phrasal verbs (drop someone off, pick someone up, get around) are introduced with a short dialogue. To practise them, students complete a few sentences so that they are true for them.
As an additional practice task, students rephrase 4 sentences given, using the correct phrasal verb.
The last 2 activities are focused on speaking. First, students write down 5 questions they will ask a friend about their last trip. Then they take turns to ask each other the questions. Lastly, students talk about their dream holiday.
Use the printable conversation cards to practise and revise these phrasal verbs even further!
