First, let’s see what the term “phrasal verbs” means.

Phrasal = connected with a phrase.

Phrase = a group of words with a particular meaning.

A phrasal verb is a verb that is combined with another word. The combination creates a new meaning.

For example:

Run = to move very quickly with your legs.
(“She can run fast.”)

Into = in the direction of something.
(“He looked into my eyes.”)

Run into = to meet someone by accident.
(“I ran into Joe yesterday.”)
