I usually cover one list each week. Some letters have so many verbs that I divide them into two lists.
Some have few, so I combine them. I hand out the list, and explain them and answer questions. Then, I ask each

and I give them a week to do it. I find a sample of writing very useful, because it tests not only their use of
the phrasal verbs, but shows me where their weaknesses and strengths are, so I can put our efforts where they will do the
