Phrasal verbs with Off

Average: 3.5 (16 votes)

English has a large number of phrasal verbs, many of which use the preposition 'off.'

For example, 'run off' means to leave suddenly and unexpectedly: "I have to run off now or I will be late."

We recently had a lesson on off phrasal verbs, now it's time for more.

Possessive 'S' - Elementary Level

Average: 3.2 (24 votes)

We use the possessive 's' to show that something belongs to someone or something. For example:
"That is Jennifer's dress" means the dress belongs to Jennifer.

Remember: If the person the thing belongs to ends in s we just add an apostrophe and do not add the s. For example:
"That is Carlos' tie."
