If you want to be fluent in English and sound native, you need to know phrasal verbs well.
There's a ton of information on them, but it's all in tiny pieces spread across grammar books, dictionaries, and various websites.
I spent a year putting this information together and building this course to make phrasal verbs as easy to understand as physically possible. By taking this course you'll save tons of time and the frustration involved in digging for bits and pieces of necessary information.
This course breaks down what phrasal verbs are, why they matter, what kinds of phrasal verbs exist, and what is the best way to learn them.
You will learn 10 of the 1.5% most common phrasal verbs in the English language: what they are, which of their meanings are the most/least common (with the % of their usage and examples), and a variety of exercises to help you cement them in your memory.
This course will give you the NECESSARY knowledge to transform your "good English" into "native English" - as long as you follow all recommendations and do all the exercises provided.

I started tutoring 9 years ago, and since then my interest for teaching has only intensified.
When I got a degree in English Education, I didn’t actually think that teaching was what I wanted to do. I tried a couple of different jobs, and decided to give teaching another try. Fortunately.
I took CELTA, learnt a bunch of useful techniques, but most importantly, I realized that I was enjoying every second spent in the classroom. I also loved going through tons of books while preparing, coming up with new strategies, and trying to foresee probable problems.
Since then I’ve taught English in the UAE, Georgia, China, Ukraine, Greece, and the USA.
I’ve always been moving a lot, which is why I have a lot of appreciation for convenience. One day I started learning French online. I realized how much better online learning is - there's no commute to class, there're a wider range of available teachers, and there's no need to smell a teacher's bad breath when they stand too close!
All these points got me thinking - why am I still not offering all these advantages to my students? Why am I leaving some of them behind when I move? So I started giving one-on-one English lessons online - and from here, it's taken off!
