New Verbs: Q to Y

Average: 2.6 (18 votes)

Here is the last in my series of 'new verbs' lessons! The verb from each sentence is missing; which verb do you think fits the gap? I hope you have learnt some new vocabulary each week and have practised using it in every day conversation. If you missed the last lessons, just click on the links below. Good luck!

PS: I could only think of phrasal verbs that begin with z. Can you think of any verbs that start with this letter?
