Set up v. Set aside

In class, we continued working on phrasal verbs (verbs with 2 words) and added the idea of the "object" in a sentence (the noun that receives the action of the main verb). Students were happy to learn more phrasal verbs--we use them in English more often than you'd think! They had trouble remembering what some of these words mean (it's not hard to do, there are so many!) Try pointing out when you use verbs with 2 words. Some to keep in mind are:

  • put on
  • take off
  • take out
  • take down
  • take on
  • set up
  • set aside

Juan - Whatever
