Vocabulary – Adult ESL – Phrasal Verbs with GO – FREE resource


this is a vocabulary lesson for Adult ESL Students who are Intermediate or Advanced level. It is suitable for use with IELTS students as well as general ESL classes. It is one of a series of lessons on Phrasal Verbs.

Idiomatic language and especially phrasal verbs are something that high level intermediate or advanced learners find challenging to understand or use.

As well as useful in day to day life these idioms are also particularly relevant to the speaking part of the IELTS exam. In some exams such as IELTS students need some familiarity with phrasal verbs to get a high score.

I created this resource to use with one to one online IELTS students but it’s adaptable to any situation. This lesson is not specific to IELTS and can be used with any Intermediate/Advanced class.

Resource includes:

  • A list of phrasal verbs using GO and their meanings
  • Activity 1 – a gap fill activity to insert the missing phrasal verb
  • Activity 2 – ideas for a role play activity using the phrasal verbs
  • Teacher’s notes with suggestions for use
  • Answer key to Activity 1

Suggestions for use included. It can be used in a number of ways according to the needs of your students. You might want to do it as a whole class, group work, one to one.

This is one in a series of lessons – check out the other verbs in my store.

This lesson prints to A4 paper and  hasUK/Australian spelling.
