  • How to use Phrasal Verbs as Nouns

    It is important to know the difference between a phrasal verb and the noun form of the phrasal verb.

    You’ll find that the IELTS, First Certificate, CAE, and TOEFL will test you on understanding the difference between them. Sometimes the noun form and the verb form have a similar meaning, but not always.

    For instance ‘make up (v.)’ and ‘makeup (n.)’ have two completely different meanings. Watch the video and learn the pronunciation and stress as well as some new vocabulary. Try the exercise at the end to see if you understand.
