I have just visited The Phraseal Verb Demon site, and I have clicked on the news, I have selected a story, "Ireland stubs out smoking in pubs", so I have read the story and the explanation about the phrasal verbs which are contained in that article...Moreover for each verb there are more examples to understand the real meaning of the verb with the specific preposition!
I suggest,like Michael this site!

Hi Mickey

I've read some of the articles in the "The Phrasal Verb Demon". In fact, its quite good with explanations and examples on how to use the verbs correctly and effectively. However, I've a problem using the dictionary at this website itself to check for words that Im not sure of. Maybe you could help me with this problem. Thanks you !!!

Hi Sarah and Sunday,

Thanks very much indeed for your comments. This site is probably a candidate for the Permanent Collection of Links to Useful Websites.

Sunday, can you tell me what problems you have had with the dictionary?

Thanks.

Kind regards,

Mike

Dear Mike,
I visited yesterday the Phrasal Demon site. I think is very useful!!
I did some quizes time and I searched many phrasals verbs on the vocabulary and the explanation of the meaning of verbs was clear!!
But the site was very slow!! When I tried to click on some functions ,the pages hadn't opened.
I will try today and shortly.

Helloo all! I see there is great interest in Phrasal Verbs so let me draw your attention to this link in the BBC 'Learning English' section:

Copy the entire link and paste it into your browser in order to go there.

Actually I think I will edit this posting to include the link!

Mariangela: Thanks very much for your message. Do not worry about grammar mistakes. It is much more important to communicate.
