On How to Solve the Problem of the Avoidance of Phrasal Verbs in the Chinese Context
Chen, Junyu
International Education Journal, v8 n2 p348-353 Nov 2007
This article discusses the reasons why Chinese learners of English avoid using phrasal verbs in an English community context or when using English as an inter-language in China. The avoidance of phrasal verbs often leads to ineffective communication. By adopting appropriate pedagogical and methodological approaches or providing proper guidance to learning, Chinese learners of English may achieve the goal of using phrasal verbs appropriately in the context of English as an international language in China.
