iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch App for Learning English!

 

The Happy English iPhone / iPad APP

This app includes 109 of the most practical and useful phrasal verbs in English with audio lessons. You can study, drill, take quizzes, and play our exciting hangman game to test your knowledge of this set of phrasal verbs.

You will study the definition of each phrasal verb, how to use the phrasal verb, the structure showing the grammar pattern of the phrasal verb, example sentences to see how the phrasal verb is used in context, and a practice question to give you the chance to use the phrasal verb. Then listen to Michael’s lesson, get meaningful practice and drills, take quizzes and even play our hangman game!

A phrasal verb is a verb + preposition that we use as an idiom. Phrasal verbs are commonly used in everyday, conversational English. It is more natural to say, “Please put out your cigarette,” than “Please extinguish your cigarette.” Some examples of phrasal verbs are: call off, calm down, drag on, drop off, figure out, fill out, give in, hang out, kick off, look into, make up, pick up, put off, run into, show up, take off, think up, try on, turn on, work out, etc. Get English, Get Happy. Happy English!
