150 phrasal verbs

I would like to give you some advice on how to learn these verbs: As you may feel already, phrasal verbs are a somewhat complicated part of the English vocabulary, so I wouldn't suggest that you binge learn a big amount of them.

Speaking Practice

As you already know, we're going to devote the month of March to practicing for the speaking exam in June. Every week I will have one pair of students do the exam in front of the class as if they were in the real situation in June. I hope not to run out of volunteers! Anyway, here are the cards so that everybody can take a look at what the speaking test is going to look like this week.

So, who's candidate A and who's candidate B? :-)
