A learner's dictionary can help by offering not just definitions, but also usage notes. What's another good resource? People. Other people who speak English. So ask around the next time you don't know what a phrasal verb means or you aren't sure how to use it. What does "ask around" mean? People ask around when they want to find a good place to eat. What else do people ask others about? Let's review two old phrasal verbs and our new one. We'll use flashcards again. "Brush up on" - what's the definition? How about "try out"? And our new one, "ask around"? Do you remember how to use these verbs? "Brush up on (something)" is transitive. It cannot be separated by the object. "Try (something) out" is also transitive. And it can be separated by the object. And finally "ask around." It's intransitive, no object. Now I'm going to ask you to use these three phrasal verbs in a short text. I'll give you a moment to complete it.
