The Barton Phrasal Verbs Quiz Hall of Fame
Remember, a phrasal verb is like an idiom -- it is a phrase that has a special meaning. Phrasal verbs have a main verb and another word that is usually either an adverb or a preposition. Here are some examples:
- Let's get together on Tuesday. (main verb + adverb)
- I decided to put off the meeting until next week. (main verb + preposition)
Phrasal verbs are very common in spoken English, especially in informal (casual) speech.
Add an adverb or preposition to the main verb to complete the phrasal verb. Each correct answer is worth 100 points. You can look at the definition of the phrasal verb before making your choice, but it will cost you 20 points.

I like all the IDIOMS on this website for good practice.
Hi Matthew, thank you for the amazing site! This is one of the best resources I’ve come across! A quick question though: one of my students to whom I recommended your site says that although he scored higher than 10,000 points in the phrasal verbs quiz, he was not able to save his credentials to get into the Hall of Fame. Does it mean that the Hall of Fame is not active now? Thanks again!
Hello Alena. You’re right. It looks like I broke the hall of fames for several quizzes when I created the Youtube Listening challenge. I went into the code and fixed it today. It should be working. If you want, I can manually add your student if you want to provide his score, name, and location. Thanks
well here it is and I have really enjoyed playing with the phrasal verbs!!!
It’s a great quiz if not well set that most of the questions are repeted over and over .
I agree with Omar. The repeats come round too quickly. However, the definitions are succinct and accurat and understandable.e
