I decided to do this episode as a way to remind you of the first 50 phrasal verbs I’ve taught you in my Phrasal Verb a Day series of mini-episodes. When I’ve reached 100 phrasal verb episodes, I’ll do another episode of The Phrasal Verb Chronicles, to help you remember #51-100.

Here are the phrasal verbs I use in this episode. Can you notice how I use them in my weird story? You could also attempt to make up your own story using these phrasal verbs. You don’t have to do all 50. Try just using 5, then 10, then 20 and so on. Eventually you should be able to make meaningful sentences using all the phrases.

I wonder what you think of the idea of “Story Time Club with Luke from Luke’s English Podcast”? Let me know ;)

    Hi Luke, Great idea! I liked it and I’ll try to reproduce this idea from my point of view, my own story using learnt phrasal verbs. Thanks a lot!

    That was a good Podcast, this phrasal verbs that you used have been very useful, thank you for all the work you have done for the English Learners. I Hope you continue working on this podcast.

    You’ve got an amazing imagination! It’s really hard to improvise a story in order to revise lots of phrasal verbs. But it is also funny as the story is completely off the cuff.

  • Petr from Czechia

    What a great idea!! I’m listening to your phrasal verbs every day, and there is nothing better than listening them again this time in this complete story

    Incredible!!!I’ve been listening to your podcast for some years. I’m sure you’re the only person who could compose such a funny usefull story! i reckon it was not as easy for you either, wasn’t it? Thanks a lot! Galina

    • Hi Galina, and no it wasn’t that easy! Did you notice that I struggled to use some of the phrases sometimes?

  • Mr. Barrera Luna

    Mr.Thompson, it was a very good story, and also, very creative, it’s a signal of being a very good language teacher. I will try to do the same, it was very interesting thank you.
