Phrasal Verbs – Teaching Strategies and Demo

Welcome to our “Phrasal Verbs – Teaching Strategies and Demonstration” Webinar!

This Phrasal Verbs webinar was shot on Tuesday June 23rd, 2015 at 7:30pm (EST/NYC time). This was our first Webinar focusing on Phrasal Verbs and the session went over very well.
In this video, James Heywood  provides instruction for teachers to approach teaching multiword or phrasal verbs in the ESL context, for both online and in-person classes.
At the end of the webinar (from 49:00 onward), we have included segments of a live recorded (online) lesson with a young ESL student which shows teaching phrasal verbs in a real online teaching environment. Feel free to share this video with colleagues and friends!

James is an online ESL teacher and co-founder of Off2Class. He has a background in language and linguistics and has logged over 4500 hours of online ESL tutoring in the last 3 years. You can read more about him here. He is head of content creation at Off2Class and has recently released our Phrasal Verbs category, which includes 32 lessons designed to get you teaching Phrasal Verbs to your ESL students. You can read more about our Phrasal Verbs series here.

      Hi Shasha,
      Thank you for taking the time to stop by and give us such positive feedbacks.
      I’m thinking about delivering a webinar on Teaching Passive Constructions. What do you think?
      Best wishes,

    This webinar has really opened my eyes on the appropriate approach to the teaching of phrasal verbs which is really a difficult topic with many students .In the Malawian examination syllabus students are supposed to choose a correct phrasal verb and it becomes difficult if the lesson presentations were not comprehensive and lacked the elements discussed here

      Hi Gertrude,
      Thanks for your feedback.
      I’ve long understood that Phrasal Verbs cannot be learned by adult student unless the correct grammar is incorporated into lessons. This area is just too complex and students really need an apopriate understanding of certain grammar points in order to utilise Phrasal and Multiword Verbs correctly, and in a natural way.
      Best wishes,
