The Level Up English Podcast
by Michael Lavers
2d ago
I'm back with another episode in the series on phrasal verbs. Today, we're looking at around 9 phrasal verbs that include the verb 'set'. It's a really common one to use and the meanings can get confusing, so I'm going to go through each one and explain the meaning, but also follow up with a story related to my life to give some context to help explain the phrasal verb.

Acronyms are words that use the first letter of each word in a phrase. NASA and LOL are two common examples from very different areas.

In this episode, I go through some really common everyday acronyms that you need to know and follow each one with an example from my own life.

#262 Why You Can't Understand Native Speakers (Elision)
The Level Up English Podcast
by Michael Lavers
2M ago
Textbook English is different from spoken English, and a big part of this comes down to pronunciation and how things are said in real conversations.  This is Part 2 in my series on pronunciation, where we first looked at Linking in Episode 255, and now we're looking at Elision. These are both features of connected speech that share some similarities. In this episode, I share an example of elision followed by a question or challenge for myself that I also ask you (the listeners) to do as well!

#261 Travel Stories - Phrasal Verbs with 'Turn'
The Level Up English Podcast
by Michael Lavers
2M ago
I get a few requests to continue my series on Phrasal Verbs, and specifically, I had one recently to cover phrasal verbs that use the verb 'turn'.  I thought of as many common ones as I could and made a list, and then I went through my memories to recount some memorable travel stories from my life.  While doing so, I used these 'turn' phrasal verbs in a natural context. I encourage you to do the same too! Practice like this is the best way to learn.
