How idioms and phrasal verbs can improve your learning process?


hace 2 años

There are so many idioms and phrasal verbs in the English language. I love them! Why?  Well, they bring a richness to the language that other parts of speech cannot. For example, how boring would life be, without expressions that make no sense when taken literally, but create an image and an agreed upon meaning when taken figuratively?

Why are idioms phrasal verbs important?

Idioms bring color and humor to a language. For example, why is “a piece of cake” the phrase that means something is easy? Have you ever made a cake? It isn’t so easy. It is time consuming and there is an art to it. That is why expanding your English skills with idioms is too time consuming and a work of art.


That’s a lot for idioms, isn’t it? Think about it. The more idioms and phrasal verbs you learn, the greater your ability to express yourself in English! You will be able to expand your vocabulary and your confidence. You and your skills, like a really good cake, will be a work of art and a feast for your senses. English may become a piece of cake!

Phrasal verbs are as useful as idioms. They are used everyday in a variety of settings.  Many have multiple meanings and when you hear them for the first time you have to shake your head and think. Take the phrasal verb “get off”. It can mean the time you quit work, to escape punishment, or to send something by mail. It can also be used to show indignation. That is a lot of power for two little words. That is why it is important to learn phrasal verbs.

Como se le llama a la regla gramatical de esta frase:
"Well, they bring a richness to the language that other parts of speech cannot. "

por ejemplo me dijeron profes de la uni que en modal verb no puede ir sin un verbo de acompañamiento pero se que esta bien y de hecho se lee bien, pero quisiera saber la regla gramatical
