    Default phrasal verbs

    Hi, I know the words 'take after' are known as phrasal verbs. How do I set a context for teaching this?

    Thanks
    Tina

    Default Re: phrasal verbs

    Hiya,

    i would say something like: Tina and Jim have a daughter called Louisa. Tina has red hair and talks a lot. Jim has brown hair and is quiet. If Louisa has red hair and likes to chat, would you say she takes after her mother or father?

    'Takes after' means 'is most like''.

    hope this helps!
