One of our students, Laetitia from Switzerland, tells you her life story using a lot of phrasal verbs. Have a look at her PowerPoint presentation and read the description that follows below (phrasal verbs in bold print):
I would like to tell you my story. My story takes place a week before I left my country and it continues until now.
Before I chose to travel, I worked. My work was to take care of the children. (to look after)
My contract finished in December so I decided to travel by myself.
One week before I left I had a disagreement with my friends. It wasn’t really important (=it was fighting over something trivial). (to fall out with sb)
The same day this disagreement was sorted. (to make up)
Now I miss my friends because we are really close. (to get on well with sb)
On Thursday I left my home to go to the airport. At the airport I had to present myself and I had to give my backpack. (to check in)
After I went to pass the security, I said goodbye to my mother. (to see sb off)
At 8:30pm my flight left the airport and off I went to Australia! (to take off)
On Saturday I arrived in Cairns and I was ready to learn English. (to pick up a language)
I am ready to continue my story! (to carry on with the story)
