This lesson introduces you to common 2-word verbs. After studying the verbs, you will take a quiz to see how well you have learned them.

A 2-word verb, also called a phrasal verb, is a special type of idiom made up of a verb plus a preposition or adverb. Like most idioms, the 2-word verb usually has a meaning different from the words it is composed of. For example, when you look up a word in the dictionary, you are not really looking up - you may even be looking down. It is important to study 2-word verbs because they are very common, especially in everyday speech.
