"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

Trying to use phrasal verbs

Penelope204Penelope204 Posts: 70 ✭✭
I need to improve to use phrasal verbs. So I posted a few examples. Help me friends!!! :) @kindgnice @Lynne @Shiny03




blow up: The Second World War blew up on the first September of 1939 with the assault of @!~* Germany against Polland.
give up: For many years she's been fihighting against the pollution. But now she's given up.

I've taken off my dress and then I've put on my pijama.

Take on: Coca Cola took me on one of its industries.

    Hi @Penelope204 - Phrasal verbs are tricky little beasts, but they make English fun.

    Here's a bonus correction:-

    give up: For many years she's been fighting against pollution, but now she's given up.

    I took off my dress and then I put on my pyjamas.
    or
    I've taken my dress off and now I will put on my pyjamas.

    Take on: Coca Cola took me on. (In this context it means "gave me a job".)

    The bomb blew up the city hall,injuring a great number of citizens.

    'The minute you think of giving up,think of the reason why you held on so long',a quote from anonymous.

    @Penelope204 You're welcome! :wink:

    I stay up late playing video games every day. (That's why I can't study English well...)

    Have you ever listened to Carly Rae Jepsen's song, Run Away With Me? It's so into me! I like it.

    Okay, now I'm really jealous of you. Your boyfriend proposed to you?

    Hi, I can't answer your phone right now. Leave a message and I'll call back soon.

    This skirt is pretty. Can I try it on? Penelope, let's learn phrasal verbs. It's fun.
    But I'll never suggest you try on them...you'll be naked! :wink:

    Why are you trying to answer my phone?

    To call back has another meaning: to return to a certain place.
