A few years ago Jason better known as Fluency MC, came up with a rap song and a video. In this video he teaches ten phrasal verbs. And as I like the video very much and I think it is really useful, I decided to create a post using the video.

In this post you will find the rap song, an infographic and a game to practise and learn the phrasal verbs.
Phrasal verbs – video
If you want to set a task for your students to do during the video, here are two suggestions:
a) Ask your students to write down all the phrasal verbs they hear.
b) Ask your students to count the number of phrasal verbs they hear.

If you teach a monolingual group and you speak their language, elicit the translations of the phrasal verbs.
If you cannot translate the words, ask the students to demonstrate the meanings.
All the verbs in the video are easy to demonstrate, therefore once your students finish studying the verbs, practise them using TPT. First, say the phrasal verb in English and students have to demonstrate it. Second, demonstrate and students have to say the phrasal verb in English.

Together with Fluency MC we have published quite a lot of posts already. You can see them here:
Together with Fluency MC, we have already published several posts. You can find here four posts on irregular verbs and two posts on collocations with the verb HAVE. Fluency MC always comes with a great rap song and I create a mind map and several activities to accompany it. And this time, he came with a song featuring phrases with GET.
[adinserter block=”1″] In this post, there is a wonderful rap song on collocations with the verb GET, two mind maps and three games to give you a chance to teach or learn these.

Phrases with get – mind maps
Once your students feel they know and understand the phrases, it is time to practise their vocabulary.
Phrases with get – games
The first game is called Time Guess. Your task is to write the correct phrase and then stop the countdown at the moment it reaches O (zero). The closer to zero you get the more points you get.
[adinserter block=”2″] The third game is called Guess the Length. Again, write the correct phrases and then guess how long the line on the screen is. The better guess the more points for you.
