Phrasal verbs

Hi guys,could anyone give me a list(a short one,because I know that it would be otherwise endless)of the most used phrasal verbs?

You can probably find many such lists by searching the net, though I’ll allow that lists favored by other learners here may have extra value. Anyway, here are a few lists my search turned up. (“Turned up” – there’s one now!)

Thanks khardy I’ll check it out.A couple of days ago I was reading a dialogue between two Americans guys and I immediately went crazy for all those phrasal verbs in a row!I didn’t understand almost anything.Moreover i have had a little trouble with all those phrasal verbs that begin with get.I know most people used them a lot and
so they are fairly commons but I was
struggling so much with them.

I had never heard of a phrasal verb until a Portuguese native speaker asked me about them. I guess I use them so often in English that I don’t even know what they are.

It isn’t useful to learn the phrasal verbs from the list and all in a go.
It’s better to learn them gradually, with a lot of examples.
You can find some popular phrasal verbs in my course ‘Step by step’,
for example this lesson is USING THE PHRASAL VERBS WITH GIVE’:

Or for more advanced learners my course with Richard -PHRASAL VERBS IN USE:

They’re verbs with a preposition (or sometimes two) after them that alter the meaning. So for example, we have the verb ‘to turn’, which means one thing, but there are all kinds of phrasal verbs with turn that all mean different things: turn on, turn off, turn around, turn in, turn on etc.

As far as I’m aware, most other languages just don’t have this concept and it’s difficult for English learners because if you get the preposition wrong, it can completely change the meaning of what you’re trying to say and could lead to misunderstandings.
