Why, oh why, do English speakers make simple vocabulary so much more difficult to learn than it needs to be? At some point someone decided that taking some prepositions and verbs, that mean one thing on their own would be a good idea to mean something different when you put them together in a short phrase. Lets talk about get phrasal verbs.

A List Of Prepositions

It’s like an ‘[inside joke]’, only people who have had the details explained to them get to understand. So today we have a lesson on get phrasal verbs, where we take time to explain what they mean, and how you might use them in everyday conversations.

Rather than give you a long list of get phrasal verbs, and ask you to read them, and you might well understand the individual words. However, you might not understand their meaning when used in regular English conversation. For example, get and into. “Get” means to come to have (something); receive. And “into” means to move inside (a container).

Now put “Get into” into a typical English conversation and you will find it being used to describe someone who is enjoying music. Logically a person cannot climb into some music, so there is a meaning here that is understood by English speakers that if it is not explained to you with examples, you just won’t understand by just reading the words written down.
