    Problem with phrasal verbs

    Hi,
    Now, it's nine years I start to learn English. It's my introducing. I find out in English are using a phrasal
    verbs a lot. And this is my problem. I tried learn them
    but it's too much. Exist some instructions: How to create
    these words? It's too hard to remember it.
    e.g.: set off
    set on
    set out
    set in
    bring out
    bring in
    bring off
    bring around
    make out
    make up
    make off
    make round
    find out
    put off
    put on
    put across
    put over
    put down
    ...............and a lot lot lot lot lot

    I don't know to remember meaning of these phrases. Is here some "manual" to creating them?

    Hi, Lucas,
    It's hardly possible to learn all of them the way you learn a rhyme. How, then? - Slowly and painfully, through reading and speaking practice.
    Best wishes!
